New Trakehner foals!

My mares foaled late last week. Meissa, bred to HIlife, foals at 338 days gestation on Thursday at 11:40 PM. She had a lovely chestnut sabino filly. Not to be outdone, Tariana, bred to Prelude by Mozart, foaled at 339 days gestation at 6 PM on Friday. (Interestingly enough, her daughter, Tanzfee, foaled a dark bay filly by Hailo on the very same day in Canada!)

Without further ado, meet Melissa Lynn FLF AKA "Mona":

And Tarantella FLF, AKA "Cookie":

I will try and get better pictures of them this evening. It was icky yesterday and they only had a few hours out on pasture before it started raining cats and dogs...

Awe! They're adorable! I love trakehners, even they can be a little crazy sometimes, once you bond with them you truly have a partner.

Actually, I've yet to meet a "crazy" Trakehner. I'd be curious to know the breeding on the "crazy" ones you've met.

In my experience, Trakehners are intelligent, willing, and very, very trainable. However, they are definitely "thinking" horses, and do not suffer fools gladly, but even so, I would not hesitate to recommend a Trakehner for an amateur rider/owner who isn't going to cowboy it around and act a fool.

With my experience I would not recommend the horses I've been around to anyone who wasn't a confident and thinking rider. Now, I'm not saying all are like that but that's been my experience. The ones I was around were often "explosive" when put under pressure. However, once they were fully trained they would think before acting. There's one gelding who I became very fond of and he had the sweetest personality, but when he was younger he would launch when asked for a lead change or introduced to something he found of difficulty. Another mare, who was otherwise sweet, was excruciatingly hot under saddle. But otherwise she had perfect ground manners.

Now, it could very well be their breeding, seeing as they came from the same breeder, but I'm fairly certain they had different sires.
