Cute baby, your mare did go through a lot in a short time, but they are hardy little horses. I had 2 foal born in November, they are identical except one is a colt and one a fily. The mares were bred when I got them, but I didn't know.

Beautiful baby. When I bred Toppa and Agi I never know what color I'll get, she has thrown most of them, all colts, I want a filly this year from her. I tell her that every year I bred her but she doesn't she should foal in the end of February or first of March she's never on time either. I just love the icey babies they are so much fun, have so much personality.

We have really enjoyed the 2 foals. They were born about a week apart and they keep us entertained playing all the time. They have been the hardiest foals I think we have ever had.

They are, they love to play Agi loves to play with his babies. Toppa gets annoyed when they start biting her front legs, and sends them to play with their dad.

Well, he was pretty far from perfect...barn sour, a little stubborn, nippy looking for treats, thought he could use me as a scratching post...but there was just "something" about him so, due to his owners' willingness to fairly negotiate his price, he's being delivered to me today.

His personality is actually pretty cute. He has good ground manners overall, just spoiled and has a couple of issues I can work out. I can touch him everywhere, get him to yield to pressure without a struggle, he gives his feet willingly, easy to tack up and mount.

I saw pics and videos (before I bought him) of them riding him and he tries really hard. His owners are not experienced horse people at all so considering what he was working with, I think he's done pretty well. Not knocking newbies because we all have to start somewhere, but as an example, when they brought me his bridle, the bit was literally hanging halfway in his mouth. As a small horse, they just used a regular horse sized bridle and let the bit fall where it may. They said he plays with his bit alot, well yeah lol, it's banging on his teeth and he can grab it. I had them punch some more holes in the bridle to fit it properly but then I had curb chain issues. They'd had the bridle so far down before that they'd twisted the curb chain to try to make it fit, so when I fitted the bridle properly the curb chain was way too tight. It was stuck in place so I couldn't adjust it. I finally put his halter back on and rode him with just that and he did much better. Considering he's done as well as he has for them with ill fitting equipment, I think he has great potential.

Thanks! He was brought in about an hour ago so I'm letting him settle in. I'll get some pics posted in the next couple of days.

Today I picked up a pony that had been dumped in the national forest. She has been running loose out there since at least the first of December, which is when she was first seen. Who ever left her out to fend for herself, left a halter on her. She was finally caught and a vet had her at her place. I am known locally as the pony person, so was called to come pick her up. The vet at least done a new coggins on her. She looks to be about 2 years old and is a little scared, but has a kind eye and the first thing I did was remove the halter.
