Smile Shire Foal!

I am purchasing an in utero shire foal! A shire has been my dream horse for the longest time and I am finally making it happen! I don't really have many horse people friends, and I had to share my excitement with someone.

The stallion is 17.3 hh
The mare is 17.2 hh

Here are pictures of the sire:

The mare is 17.2 hh

And the dam:

You are so lucky! A draught horse is my dream to one day own. Especially a shire or clydesdale. But boy the price!

Sheepdog: Yeah, I have wanted a draft for the longest time. But every time that I have found one in my price range, or close to it they have been so far away that the transport made it way out of budget.

But I have found a breeder much closer to home and I'm able to make payments until the foal is ready to be picked up.

DeliciousD: I do too. Shires are my all time favorite breed. I have wanted one for so gosh darn long.

The dam isn't far at all, the foal will be a 2015 baby. So I still have ages to wait. I am already about to burst with excitement though XD

VLBUltrahot: They really are stunning. I love the filly that this pair had in 2012.

I already have such big plans for this baby. In my head we have already taken the world by storm XP

The mare looks familiar, somehow. Are you comfortable sharing their names? I am head over heels in love with a little local filly, but... can't really do two horses. The mare and stallion are lovely.

Captain Evil: The mare's name is Jenson's Iris and the stallion is Moonlight Solstice. Do you know them?

Nothing worse than getting into that head over heels but can't have situation.. I'm sorry to hear that you're in it.

But your guy Ahab is just to die for, I love his build!
