    My little herd

    Thought I'd officially introduce everyone. First is Stella. I discovered an online ad for her and had to meet her. I was very shocked when we went to see her. She was in a very small dirt lot with 3 other horses and she was quite emaciated. Her previous owners made her out to be this wild, hard to handle lunatic, but she had the kindest eyes and I knew right away we had to get her out of there.

    Here's how she looked the day I brought her home:


    Couple days later:



    This was just 4 weeks later:



    And here she is today all fat and happy:





    I'll add the other two horses later.

    Very cute and she looks like a completely different horse. You've done so well with her, can't wait to see your other horse :)

    Thank you Supermane for looking at them. It's been a very rewarding experience getting her to where she is now.

    Now, before I post pics of my other two, I better ask if it's okay to post photos of my filly's birth...so, is it okay?

    Thanks Kirsti! I double checked the HF guidelines so I don't think I'm breaking any rules. I hope I don't gross anyone out either!

    Okay, so next is Luna. My parents own her dam (Ruby) whom we were told is a haflinger, but I posted in Horse Breeds questioning that and the general consensus is that she is a Belgian cross. But I do know she was bred to a standardbred and you can definitely see that in Luna. My parents bought Ruby from an Amish farm near our place and because she was close to foaling we kept her until she foaled and our oldest daughter and I were able to witness her birth. I don't think either of us will ever forget that.

    There are too many pics, so I'll just post the highlights:



    Ruby nickered to Luna here and it was the most precious thing:


    Here she is at five days (check out those ears!):


    Four months old:



    In her winter woolies:


    And now as a yearling (when the sun hits her just right she's very red):

    I got to watch my neices colt Dalton being born-she video'd the whole thing and emailed it to me-you can see him under the ugly horse thread in pictures.

    Last, but not least, is our fat boy, Ogre. He's our three girls' pony, but I like to drive him. Don't let his name fool you, he's a sweet boy!
