The new girl, Percheron mare

This is Selah, a registered Percheron mare. We made kind of a "spur of the moment decision" to ad her to our family. I have been looking for a good half draft for my husband but we settled on her. Sweet doesn't begin to cover her temperament. She was broke to drive as a three year old but has had seven foals between then and now. I hope to have her riding nicely by spring for my husband to enjoy something slow, safe and steady.

Sorry, we are a bit camera happy around here.

She needs her feet done, soon! We already love her so much.

beautiful mare, though.

She IS beautiful, but.....if you don't want a foal and really DO want her for your DH to ride-perhaps she needs to NOT be out with the stallion? 8-0

She also really needs her feet done. BADLY.

Two stallions? I wasn't aware that I owned two stallions, that could be an issue :) I should go seperate them. She is with the same horse in every one of these photos.
She is already in foal and the more the marrier for him to live with and take care of in his little herd out there. She is pastured with the stallion and two other brood mares as they eat the same things, if you all MUST know. Owning a stallion does entitle me to knowing a bit of how this whole "boy/girl" thing works and I have yet to have created an un-intended foal. So typically when I have a mare in with my stallion I am expecting a foal as that is what tends to come of this mix. That is why, she is in, with a stallion. Or two.
I meantioned that she needs her feet done, this is obvious and being taken care of ;)

For those of you who just enjoyed the photos and introduction of our new friend, thank-you for the compliments! We are really enjoying her, she has found herself the center of a lot of attention and loves it. I am looking forward to getting her going under saddle and will share updates :)
