Yes-- She is not for sale at any price. I've turned down 3 offers as of now. Sorry for my absence, but I've been on vacation the last few weeks camping in the woods enjoying bonfires, live music, great food, and great company.

Fae continues to be a sweet little lady, enjoying her grooming sessions and loving her hoomans.. I'll have to see how she grows to decide what her future will be. You all will have to help me with that..

I'll get more pics as soon as I can, but all my babies have already fuzzed up-- looks like FL is going to have a cold winter.

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

Apparently Princess is too big for her 34-48" blanket. It only goes to the front of the hip. I'd better measure her since she had a growth spurt while I was gone. I suppose we should take it back since it came from Congress... ;)

Here's Wrecker! 7-1/2 Months Old now. She is fitting nearly perfect in a 58" blanket. She is about 430 pounds now, 12.3 In the front, 13.1 In the hindend.

She had a mild case of colic last Tuesday. Scared the daylights out of me. But she's better and hasnt shown any discomfort since that night. She's such a sweetie.

Here are some pictures of Takala this past Sunday. She spends most of her time in a paddock with her two buddies, our twenty four year old morgan Gypsy and our newest addition, Franklin the miniature donkey. In the afternoon all the "big horses" get to go out on pasture to run around and get some of the stupid out of them. Takala gets let out with them and she makes it a point to sprint all the way down there and stretch her legs. She really loves it out there, but the geldings sometimes get into moods where they play a bunch and get a little rough with her... but after being chased off she'll wait a few seconds, then run back over to taunt them. So I limit her exposure to them to protect her from herself.

Monday I worked with her a little, mostly on tying. I tied her up in the arena for ten or so minutes while I lunged one of the geldings. She was a little antsy, and "aunt" Gypsy must have taught her how to paw because she puts lots of effort in it now. I tied her on several occasions and she hadn't tried to pull back. I also tried our lightest driving harness on her. It is a little big yet, but she did not care at all that it was on her. I didn't bother yet with the crupper as I do not want to solicit a reaction with an ill-fitting harness. She doesn't even mind walking with it on her. I can't wait for a few years to go by and I can start her in harness! It will be so nice having a horse that has been handled through out it's life to train for once. And it will be even better considering it is my lovely Takala Rose.

loved looking thru all the pix of this years babies, especially watching them as they grow. Good luck to everyone!!

I wanted to share pix of my baby, Isis. She was foaled April 18 and put down April 19. Anyone who has bred knows how much of your heart you put into your mare and all the anticipation that comes with the 11+ months of waiting. It's never easy to say goodbye, and having to make the decision to let my 36-hour-old filly go is one of the hardest, and at the same time easiest, decisions I've ever had to make. RIP, babygirl <3 Your memory will forever live on

thanks
She was lactose intolerant... my vet initially thought she had a delayed dummy foal syndrome-type issue, maybe neurological...vet was out 4 times to the farm before we decided our best course of action was taking her to the clinic. Blood work was ok, but an ultrasound showed that she had already ruptured and was clearly not a surgical candidate. After analyzing her hour-by-hour life, we came to realize she got significantly worse after nursing...a clear (unfortunately not in time) sign that nursing was resulting in colic. We're still not sure if it was a freak thing or if my mare is possibly to blame. She really enjoyed being a mom, so I think we're going to try again, but keep a very close eye on the next foal...foal lac and a muzzle if need be. I know I can't go through that again, and I don't think Jaz can either

How heartbreaking!
I wonder if maybe your mare is possibly an NI mare? (neonatal isoerythrolysis)

i'm not sure, but I would prefer to have her tested....I know this was just as hard on her as it was on me, and i'd hate to set her up for a failure again.
