SLCS -- I'm not on here very often, so I'm just now seeing your photos of Domino -- gorgeous! I bet you're anxious for spring and shedding or clipping to get here!

I love the Buckeye horses, and Getitia is both extremely knowledgeable and willing to share information. (She's a regular contributor over on that "other" mini forum.)

I've always loved the Arenosa Shetlands, and her breeding program is a hotbed for them. I may have skimmed too quickly and missed this, but did you say who Domino's sire and dam are?

Even in their winter woollies, you have a very nice herd! Who all drives?

Hi Susanne, and thanks!
Yes, I am very anxious to body clip him this spring, I imagine he will look quite a bit like his sire from the couple of pics I've seen of him.
(I posted a reference pic on the first page of this thread)
His sire is
C-Chief Proud Eagle out of Komokos Blue Eagle,and his dam's name I can't recall off the top of my head, it had Getitia's name in it though.....
I also contacted Ron at Dark Star Farm since Domino was with them for many years as a sire. He has been very nice as well, telling me more about his temperament and all. I had wondered why he gelded him before selling him, because he said he passed on such nice color, temperament and movement to his foals.... He told me it was strictly a business decision, and kind of regrets it now.

I have six minis in total, (as well as three riding horses).
Kozmo, the strawberry Leopard, Me Jo, the pinto, and Dancer, the sorrel, my husband and I have trained to drive.
I have our little black stallion, Sammy, and our Bay, Hobbs to finish this summer. Then they will all be driving!
I was told Domino has been shown in driving classes as well, so we will see what he actually knows after all this snow melts!
My hubby kind of has his eye on Kozmo and Domino as his driving team, so that will be another "adventure".

A knack for horses, thanks so much!
I don't think I could have gotten a nicer birthday present.

I am looking out the window as I type this, and smiling.
My little herd is all laid out together napping in the sunshine.....
(minus grumpy Hobbs still, unfortunately)

Ohhh, I love the picture of him as a baby! I would love to get some pics of my boys as foals. It will never happen with Bruno...his past is such a mystery. As for Boo, I contacted his breeder, she has a farm about 3 hours north of here. She remembered Boo very well, but alas, had no pics of him as a baby.

Honestly, I think Domino is ADORABLE with his winter coat! Almost reminds me of a "merle" color of a dog in the latest pictures you posted. So unique!!!

Hey Dirtymartini!
I was happy that she had at least that one foal pic to share!
I am hopeful that Ron at Dark Star will send me some from his time there, he said he was hunting for some....
I guess I am just curious about how his coloration has changed over the years, but it is also just fun to see how they've grown up!
Can't get that lucky with every horse, but it is always worth a try.....
(On Bruno, did you try contacting any of the former owner's off his registration?)


Thanks!
Yes, he sure does have some unique coloration right now, and it seems he also looks different depending on the light....
Summer just can't get here soon enough!

Talking

Just gott'a share some more "settling in" pics with you all.....

Every one is in together now except that little booger, Hobbs.
Domino is still fairly shy, still only really buddying up with Sammy, but he does not completely separate himself from every one any more, he does more "mingling".
I am happy to see it too!


Love watching them all happily munching away!

Domino sharing a pile with Sammy, even with Hobbs on the other side of the fence...

Just a quick update.

I put Hobbs back in with the herd this morning. Domino was feeling comfortable enough with where he stood with the others, so it felt like the right time.
I put him in when I fed, and all went smoothly. Now that they are just crumb hunting, and not so occupied I see a little bit of running around, but not much. And it seems pretty half hearted at that. So
far all seems pretty good out there.
At the moment every one is napping.

Just thought I'd share...

Your pictures are so pretty! I swear, it is like a different world!

Sounds like all is mellow and working out fine at your place. I am happy for you, and for Domino!

Bruno is not registered...his past is such a mystery to me. Poor dude. :(

Keep us updated...although it sounds like all is well!

Hi Dirtymartini,

Oh ya, I bet it looks like a different world compared to Florida!

Like Bruno, my "mystery man" is Hobbs. No papers or anything on him either.
When we went to look at Sammy, we were told he came with, and we were happy to oblige! But it would be nice to know a little more about him then just his age.

And thanks! Feels good to have a happy little herd again....
