Spring is abounding…..I think??
March has certainly been a roller coast this year. The weather has gone from a blizzard and minus -20 C. To a beautiful day expecting to be +6 C. I am looking forward to today!
The horses are shedding, the mares are glowing with their pregnancies. Well realistically, the glow is there, you just need to look under the fuzz, and somedays under an inch or 2 of snow blanketing their backs.
Off to enjoy this beautiful morning. The sun is rising, the horses are feed, and I am starting my second coffee. Ahhhhhh life is great!
- 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!
- A newly approved stallion.
- Fait accompli
