Thank you

We love this pair and all my sisters are just as excited for a hopefully happy foaling. The whole reason my mom convinced my dad to spend a small fortune and let her buy the stallion and build proper stallion fencing was so she could get a foal out of Dreamer by him. We were scared she couldn't carry after last year's heartbreak, but the equine specialized vet gave the okay to breed so we did, she caught, it was confirmed, all her shots are being given at the right times, so we really hope since she made it this far, there won't be another repeat of last year

Just WOW! Stunning horses! And I love to see parents who are atcually used for something other than breeding! Both babies are going to be beautiful!
Best wishes for both and I love the photo of the stud's colt. Absolutly lovely :o)

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

My mare Merlot lost her first foal 24 hours after birth. She came to me a few months after when she was already in foal again and so I made sure she got all her vaccines AND most importantly top quality vitamin/mineral mix in her feed every day. The result?

My wee man Zephyr Moo - who was born as straight and correct and healthy as can be - and continues to thrive See here at 2 days old.

So I understand the stress of wondering if it (the bad stuff) will happen again.

And some videos I took this past June

Forgive my shaky camera skills, I need a tripod and the ability to predict what my subject is going to do next. No one was directing where they went, so this is truly Sir and Dreamer at liberty within the confines of an arena.

Video of Sir:
He is a total show off to all the girls a long distance away, that is where he is looking right before he struts some more

Video of Dreamer:
She was more excited about being separated from everyone else and can flag her tail like a champion. Is completely all natural, not even snippet of a bridle path, no clipping of her fetlocks either. I love the fact that her thick long mane can be put on either side of her neck and look like it should be on that side

And he is a very handsome little boy

Always important to work closely with a vet and give the mare the best there is to give the best possible odds for a happy and safe delivery. We had a private little party (between my mom, myself and my sisters) over the phone when Dreamer passed the point when she lost last year's filly. After she passed that point, we were then focused on her getting to the safe foaling point. She is a wonderful auntie and even attempted to steal the boss mare's filly 2 yrs ago, that didn't work out in her favor

And just to share the troubles blacks can give... Photography with overcast skies does not work well. :/

And yes, that halter is way too big for Sir's small head
