Here is Mya Moonshine Knight. AQHA Buckskin filly. She was born March 18, 2009 and was stuck and should not have been born alive. She was stuck for over an hour. The vet and my husband pulled her out with chains and she was breathing! This picture was taken before she got her winter woolies. She is sassy and loves to be loved on. She is good for vet, farrier, and she is halter broke and leads well. We haven't had a bath yet or attempted to get in a trailer. She works well with clicker training and easily hits a target. Mare is doing well, but will not be bred again. One foal is enough for me.
Aww love the goatie (can't see the other pics, most are blocked at work )
I have two '09 foals. Shakespeare was born in April, a silver black appy mini colt. He's going through a bratty stage, rearing and biting when being led, BAD BABY! LOL He's learning that's not acceptable though He's ready for a new home, soon as we find the right buyer for him
Pebbles was born late August, she's a chestnut mini filly. I'm in no rush to wean her, her and momma are doing well, and while she is for sale, I have no problems with keeping this outstanding filly! So for now she's still with momma (and half brother Shakespeare).
I can't access pics at work, so will try to remember to post some later. I need to take new ones though! But they're little fuzzy yaks right now haha!
Their dams are not re-bred, but I do have 3 other mares in foal for this spring. Two are in foal the the sire of Pebbles and Shakespeare.
I started a thread like this but since it seemed to have died, I will contribute to this one.
This is Rafe. He was born July 16th of '09. His momma is a Belgian and daddy was a QH. We rescued Momma back in about May, I think. He is doing really well; leads, ties, picks up feet, and will stand for just about anything (haven't tried a bath yet though). When I measured him the middle of December, he was 13.2hh tall, at 5 months. I think he is gonna be a big boy.
Here he is the day he was born.
And the day after.
And here are the most recent pix. Those are both full size horse halters he is wearing. And just for referance, I am 5'5" tall.
My Oldenburg filly by Coromino was born May 2, 2009. She's doing great - hanging out, being a baby. She's good for the vet, she stands very well and is fine for blankets. She hasn't been on the trailer since she was 3 months old, but she loaded fine then. We're working on clippers and so far so good Last time I measured her was about a 2 months ago and she was 13.3hh.
This year she'll be hitting some Future Event Horse shows and going to local shows with a 2 and under Confirmation class. And possibly a USDF breed show
Here she is at 5 days:
Here she is at 3 months at her GOV Inspection where she was awarded Premium:
This is one of the most recent pics I have of her, she's 7 months here:
I'm 5'9" and she's taller than me now... they grow up so fast.
Took some new photos of Shakespeare. Re-clipped his head/neck (common to do with minis, to show what they look like under their massive winter fluff lol!) and HE HAS SPOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought they were just dirt. Then when I was going through the photos, I thought it odd dirt would be grey... (he's a silver dapple).... So I thought, just maybe... and went out to try to scrub them off. They stayed, it's not dirt, it's appy spots!! WAHOO!!! (his sire is my leopard)
Haven't taken any really recent of Pebbles, but here are some. She's a fuzz bucket lol!
About to go post more of Shakes in the photo section...
I haven't taken many new photos lately on account that while I'm trying to focus and such with the camera my fingers just about freeze off!:lol: I did get a couple on wednesday, but they are kind of dark. Here is Mana.
Lexi was born March 23rd (I think or was it the 22nd) anyway. She was a surprise for us. I told my husband I thought she was pg took her to the vet on a Friday and Lexi was here on a Sunday. Pics of her at birth, 1 month, 6 months, and then about a month ago. She is as tall as her mama who is 12hh. i have no idea what color she is or who daddy is. Last pic is mama. NO MORE BABIES FOR US...unless they are the human kind
I need to get some more photos of here but I got my 10 month old filly home last weekend and just today decided to call her Sonata. She's a QH/Appie and will be registered with ApHC, gonna send her papers in next month and hoping her registered name will be Rawhides San Fancy.
She's not really used to being handled but she's very sweet. Since saturday I have gone to having to corner her to catch her to her letting me approach her from the side, rub her shoulder and then she is fine with me clipping the lead on. She also let me walk up to her while she was eating and rub her neck which she hasn't done before. I weighed her and she's 550lbs or close to and she is 13.1hh but I'm not sure how accurate that is considering I did it by myself and held her at the same time
She came back positive for worms so we are working on getting those nasty ******s out of her. Next thing we are gonna work on is getting her used to having her feet handled cuz she's in desperate need of a trim!
