Wow! I'm an annual blogger only, apparently! LOL.Okay... to sum up the last year, 6 foals, my son born in July, and no shows. Crazy hectic, but loads of fun. :) This year now, will hopefully be a different story. I am downsizing my herd as is evident by the FOR SALES beside a number of the mares. Bella, Dancer, and Sapphie (MAYBE Jasmine) will be my only mares here once everyone else is sold. Classy is being gelded this March, Moonie going home yet this month, and any other intact males aside...

February 2012

Well, halfway through February, 2 months to go until foals start arriving! Sophie and Kody are due first, followed by Sapphie, Taffy, Butters, and last Strawberry (late June). This spring will be spent doing quiet groundwork and maybe some ground driving. No shows, unless I am fit and ready to go by the end of August since I will be having my own baby the end of June. :)

I am excited about the cross to Taffy with Classy as I really liked Abby who is out of Blossom (full sister to Taffy...

I suck at blogging!

So the summer was busier than usual. Got a lot done, but nothing that needed to be done, like patching the barn roof, getting new paddocks done for the minis, and building the much needed stalls. Hopefully all that will be done before the snow flies. We have pretty much everything needed (except fence) to get a good start, just need the manpower. Went to 2 shows this summer and had fun. Took Classy, Bella, Britt, and Jack to both shows, and had Fern and Abby for the August show. It's quite a ...

Blossom had a filly!

Posted by Mary on April 16, 2011 at 11:48 AM Comments comments (0)

Abby is a palomino filly, 21.5" tall and sweet as can be. Jen is tickled with her new addition and so am I as it gives me a small clue to what I can expect by crossing Fern to Classy! Blossom is a great mom especially for her first baby. :)  Britt is still hanging in there... won't be long though!

February Update

So, here it is the end of February and the weather has been wretched so not much done training the horses. I hopefully will have the few horses ready to show by May 14/15 as that is the AMHR show at the Portage County fairgrounds.  Even if I only make it to that AMHR show, I will be happy. This way I get a taste of showing at breed level. I keep changing my mind on who I am showing this year, but still plan on showing Classy and Bella. I have added Taffy to the lineup and maybe Fern. I'd...

Time to motivate!

Posted by Mary on January 3, 2011 at 10:46 PM Comments comments (0)

It's January! For some, it's time to start welcoming foals into the world, start gearing up for training, and for the rest it's time to start longing for more daylight and warmer weather! I'm aiming for shows in April and May for sure, so need to get going on Classy, Bella, Butters, and Sapphie. I am not all sure who I want to show this year other than Classy and Bella, so I will have to see who is coming along the best. Speaking of Classy, the little bugger is learning to keep his brain in b...

okay, so apparently I don't keep up on the blog. Went to the show at the county fair this year with Classy, Bella, Blossom, and Lily. Classy was a total moron! He was doing so well at home, no screaming, was setting up and paying attention no matter where I worked him. He completely lost it once off the trailer and screamed the whole entire time we were there. I still took him into his classes as he needed the experience. I still don't see how he was the only entry in the B size Sr stallion c...

It's a filly!

Posted by Mary on March 28, 2010 at 11:26 PM Comments comments (0)

After 6 nights in the barn, Butters decided to sneak in her baby while I was at work on March 18th.  It's a red dun filly that may possibly go dunalino, but the vote seems to be red dun. She has a lot of chrome, too! I call her Bella, and her registered name will be DDS Shez All Dun In Chrome. Sweet little baby who should stay relatively small. That is all the babies for the year, so now it's time to catch up on spring cleaning and conditioning the ones I hope to get to shows this year:

It's a boy!

Sapphie snuck Robin in, Thursday Feb. 4, in between blinks. I had just checked her, stretched out for a bit and I blinked. Robin is a bright red sorrel colt with quite the personality. When he sheds out his foal coat, I expect he'll be a liver chestnut, though I could be wrong.  Last bright red foal I had turned a deep liver when she shed. We'll know later this year!


I worked with Lily and Fern a bit this evening, and Lily decided that I don't bite and it's okay to le...
