And I said lastly, but I just feel bad not including everyone, so here is everyone else. So when I desided I wanted A mini, I jumped in w/ both feet and actually ended up w/ four. I am planning to downsize in the Spring and not sure who's staying and who's going (except Skip, he's staying). So firstly is the mare I bought when I bought Skip.
Chrystal, she's super cute, but is not overly friendly, she's the only equine I have that is hard to catch, even though she does fine once caught. I plan to train her to drive once it warms back up.
And Money, I bought Skip on payments and the breeder made sure to let me know she was up for trades, I had some stuff I offered her, and she felt she'd be getting the better end of the deal and offered me Money too! I couldn't say no! I also plan to train Money to drive, and actually already started w/ her over the Fall. She's got a really good mind and not much bothers her, she's alot like Skip in that way. She's going to be a really great parade horse!
And the youngest equine member of the family is DJ (Diamondback Jack), I hadn't planned on adding this boy, I had another mini that I mentioned to a friend I was thinking of finding a new home for. She offered to trade one of her foals for her, so instead of downsizing I ended up trading. DJ will be a year old in March. He's adorable and flashy and if I keep him long enough he'll also be trained to drive. He's a pretty good boy, and already been exposed to alot. His markings are also kind of unique, you can't see it in the photo, but he's got a perfect diamond right in the middle of his back, he also has a streak of white in his tail and two streaks in the black part of his mane.
And one more then I promise I'm done! Our mule Canya. Canya and her brother Joker were suprises! Our first mules and I feel like I've learned alot! When I desided to keep only one I expected to keep Joker, he was the friendlier for the longest time, and also seemed alittle more full of character! But when I started working w/ them I could see Canya was going to be the better fit for the family. I ended up trading Joker for training on Canya (we're picking her up Monday). I'm eager to get her home, hopefully my nephews will continue to be interested in riding and the plan is for her to eventually have her as our second family horse. I also have an easy entry cart that has been gathering dust in the garage so I may later train her to drive. (the pics are baby and weanling pics)
