Henny is coming home!!
10 Attachment(s)
As some of you may know, my baby boy Henny will be coming home this Saturday! I am so extremely excited, I cannot wait for my Henny baby to be with me.

A little background: I was searching for a stallion to breed my mare to. I came across an ad for a gorgeous black tobiano stallion, and got in contact with the breeder. I instantly switched from breeding my mare to purchasing a foal in utero. One breeding caught my eye, genetically guaranteed to be a buckskin tobiano or a smokey black tobiano. With buckskins and paints being my favorite color, and both parents having great conformation, I jumped at the chance and paid the baby off in 3 months.

I had an inkling one morning that my baby had been born, and surprise, I got an email from the breeder saying the baby was here! Mama was being protective so she couldn't sex the baby, but she said it was a gorgeous buckskin foal with LOTS of chrome. I was hopping around the office I was so excited. I came home to pictures of my baby colt, Hennessy! He was the cutest little thing I'd ever seen, and immediately fell in love with him. Seeing as how I paid him off before he was born, I was able to choose the registered name. With the help of the FB group, I was able to come up with "Swen Sparks Fly." Not only did I have a flashy baby, he had a flashy name!

Henny was born April 23rd. My birthday is April 19th. My sister's birthday is the 24th. I also have two friends, ThirteenAcres(Tori) and Harley_D(Carrie) who had colts born on the same day! Henny was weaned August 13, and will be ready for pickup on Saturday. I'll be making a 4 hour drive one way to get my little monster, but he is so worth it! And for reading this novel, you will get plenty of pictures :) The pictures are in chronological order. I will definitely be posting more pictures when he gets home!

I also thought I'd include pics of the parents, and his pedigree!

His pedigree is here: Swen Sparks Fly Paint

His dam is pictured just days before foaling. She's a big mama! Black Jack is gorgeous, and had a great temperment. We were able to pet him and her other stallion and they were as calm as can be being pastured next to each other!

I am SOOO excited!!! He is growing like a weed! And those muscle lines!! JEESH! Part of me will be sad if he get's gelded, even though I have no mares that'd breed well to him :lol: Just so darn gorgeous, you'll be the envy of ANY trail ride you go on.

Haha thanks, Tia! Believe me, y'all will be the first to see pictures of my baby boy.

Thanks, OVO! Him and Lily will be champs in the yearling lunge linge :wink:
