Fantastic!

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

16 Weeks Old!

Here's my sweetie pie. It's been just over 2 weeks since surgery. She had 4 stitches pulled on Tuesday, the other 2 today. She was wonderful and never moved a muscle. While she was lying down sleeping is when my mom and I ganged up on her to snip them. We got 4 and then she got up. So we got the other 2 tonight with no troubles. She healed very nice and it's such a relief to have that done and over with. My vet did a wonderful job.






Healed hernia scar. Looking good!


Tired girl...And... I found another white patch on her! Right in the center of her belly is either a Spade or an Arrowhead...


Cute Cute Cute!





The construction on the barn is going superb. We adding 24 feet in length. A 12 x 24 leanto off the front of the barn for hay storage. And a 16 x 24 leanto off the back that the horses can go under. So in total, I have a 54 by 56 barn.

Wow, that scar is healing very nicely!

Wrecker is so adorable, I love that little spot on her belly :) Too precious - and kissable!

( . . . I'm not the only one who kisses bellies, right? No wait, I am? Darn it.)

Closing in on 5 months. (Already)

Wow, I cannot believe how times flies. Wrecker is growing in leaps and bounds. She is still as amazing as ever. Once construction on the barn is finished, I'm going to separate Chilly and Wrecker so Chilly's milk can dry up. Then they'll go back together after...however long that takes. I don't plan on "weaning" her from mom. She already handles being away from Chilly without fuss so I see no point in keeping them completely separated.

Her color has changed drastically. She looks BROWN. *sigh* She really faded over the past month and I'm so disappointed.

Between my boyfriend and my dad, who say she is BROWN and won't believe otherwise. I'm going to have to DNA test her. With the color she is now, I'm starting to doubt myself.

Outside of the barn is done. Ready for hay. 5th stall is up, just needs a door. I'm SOOOO pleased with how wonderful it looks. I have pictures but haven't uploaded them. It seriously is awesome. Everything you could want, minus the indoor arena that my dad said absolutely not to.












Hernia is completely healed and GONE. Yay!


Ally Way. Leads to the 2 pastures out back.


We have 4 divided sections that I rotate horses onto. They just got let out into this part and are loving it. Fatties. Once horses are moved to a new section, I mow the old section they were on, rake the poop with the tractor and close it off to grow. I've never had such good grass. Especially in August. We are FULL of clover on the front 2 sections. And so green!

Why does she have to grow up.

Wow, she's looking gorgeous!

I still say she's black, but she looks like she'll be prone to fading.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Seriously stunning girl! Could the brown be sun bleach? She looks so healthy and shiny!

I still say she is black too. Just super faded from the sun. They are out 24/7. And Just one month ago she was jet black.

She is a very good girl.

The stallion owner was down today to see her. First time since she was a week old. She could not believe how she looks. She said she is phenomenal and so sweet and amazing.

She is a nice looking filly. You did good in your breeding to get her, she won't disappoint you.
