I certainly would have gone if we were closer together. I probably would have come home with 2 or 3 good looking foals as well LOL.

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/

I was amazed to see folks from far away as Kansas and Ohio. Quite a few southern folks. Met one guy and he purchased 5 really nicely bred foals for just under $1200. Don't let that fool you though..average price on foals had to be appx $600. There was one guy there from down south somewhere (didn't hear where) and he had no problem bidding $800-$1000 on foals. I think he took a big trailer load of 'em home with him.

A couple of new photos of her. Still stumped on a name. She is doing really well. Settling in nicely. She is leading so well, we took a walk around the farm. She is standing tied pretty good and will load in the trailer like a champ. I've never seen a foals coat as thick as hers. It's amazingly soft.

I was going to mention she looks as soft as plush!

Attractive little filly, I really dig her neck and I think she's going to turn into a powerhouse.

Here are some more names to get you kick-started, though I'm not sure which you prefer in terms of type (human, mythic, short, etc..):
Aurora
Kalamazoo
Casper
Abby
Pyewacket
Willow
Raven
Queenie
Binx

Well anyway...I am terrible with names. It usually takes me over two weeks to decide on a pet's given name, and that's from constant exposure to their personality and such.

I do look forward to watching her grow up. :)

She (still no name yet) was nice enough to break the clasp on her halter while in her stall today. (she's haltered with a leadline until she's halter broke) So hopefully, I can take it back and exchange it for a new one. Until then, she's stuck with an old pinkish one. Such a naughty girl.

Ps. We are considering these names:

Calypso
Kit
Kaluah
Sahara
Bronwyn
Bailey
Aurora
And leaning towards....Pandora.

I have to agree, she is one fine looking filly. Going to be exciting following how she grows and turns out. You're going to have yourself one heck of a horse on your hands. Congrats on your new baby.

I like the name Pandora quite a bit, but I also like Kia for some reason.
