    They're all beautiful!Takala definitely has some excellent genes... I would have thought those two mares were sisters, they look so alike, haha

    I really believe Takala got a perfect dose of both of her parent's genetics. Of course she will change as she grows, but I feel like she will be slightly more refined than Tenakee, who has a fairly coarse head in comparison to ideal. Takala certainly won't have a small face by any means, but a bit more in proportion.

    Today Takala got to be introduced to her new blanket that fits her. We borrowed one that is just a size up from the last, hopefully it does not get cold enough that we have to use it, but it is nice to have on hand just in case. After modeling the blanket for a bit, I took it out and my mother stopped by and took control of the camera. It is nice to have pictures of her and I, especially considering that I spend a lot of my time with her and in all the pictures she is running around far away from me. These pictures convey her true personality, as she isn't all burning around.

    I also went to visit some Clydesdale babies today. One filly who was a week or so old, then a colt that was maybe a month. The filly is the darker colored one and the colt is lighter. I only have a long-distance lens so bear with me. All of my pictures must be taken from afar, so it a wee challenging. More pictures to come, they have quite a few more babies due soon.

    I especially like that last one of you two. With her eye closed, she looks so much at peace. The Clyde babies are almost as cute as Takala. :)

    I planned on keeping a filly, and I never quite expected that she would be this perfect, so she's a definite keeper. Hopefully she have a strong future as a driving horse and maybe lower level dressage if I ever get that far. I hope that she can follow in the footsteps of her mother and give me a few nice foals after she's proven herself, but that is far into the future. Right now I just want to get her growing up right.

    As per usual, a weekend update is in order. Due to nice weather - as in no tsunami rains or arctic chills - they got to go in the outdoor arena for some exercise. Takala must have been done with running about by the time I summoned the courage to go back outside with the camera. But pictures of Takala just standing around are better than no Takala at all. ;) Also, Takala is almost a month old! Very exciting, and she is getting big, fast! Tenakee has started shedding heavily, so forgive that she is scruffy. I pulled at least a dog's worth of hair off of her after I took the pictures. I think she's a crazy woman because in Wisconsin, winter sometimes doesn't end until April. But I don't think the big mare will have much of a problem, she's got plenty of hair left, even after shedding.

    Isn't she just adorable! And I know what you mean with the shedding. The horses here are starting to lose it all too, and like Wisconsin, it is not unheard of in Alberta for snowstorms to occur in April, May or even June sometimes.
