Babies are weaned and the mares are all free to play around. Today was the first time we put a saddle on Wietska Wv. Her previous owner said she was broke to ride, but it had been a few years. We weren’t to sure what would happen, but when we mounted the saddle our wonderful Wietska acted like it was just another day.
There was no need to be apprehensive with this mare. We were so pleased her first day (pardon the pun) back in the saddle. GOTTA LOVE THESE FRIESIANS!
Next one up WIetska van de Anne Heove
Till next time
- Ever once in a while a horse comes along that wraps its self with in your heart. Rein is one of those horses. She will never tower over all the other horses, or become the Alfa of the herd. Rein had a slow start in life a first foal for Durkheim, coming 2 & 1/2 weeks early. Her mom only produced half the milk she required to start her young life. She quickly got use to milk replacer as a supplement, organic probiotic yogurt, (my horses will get what ever they need to help them survive), along with supplements recommended by the fenway foundation. At 4 years old she is a beauty. Like I said she will never be a 17 hand horse, but she surpassed 17 hands in my heart along time ago. There is truth in the old saying, Good Things Come In Small Packages!
