Wow, I can’t believe how time flies! I remember setting my website up and thinking I was going to get this blogging done every week LOL Well, I had no idea how much work would go into all of this. The marketing, sales, photos, washing, etc… There is a lot of effort.
One thing I hope is that buyers appreciate the efforts someone goes through to get them all the info they request. At the end of the day, if they don’t want to buy what said person is selling, PLEASE have the respect to tell the seller you are not interested. This is one of thee most frustrating things in this business.
This year we are expecting 16 foals!! I can’t believe it. We would have 17 but Sky slipped. Which is okay, because it was her way of saying she needed a year off. I do plan of getting Sky started under saddle in the coming months as we will have lots of time to get her trained. Diva is another mare I have planned on getting started as well. Joy, Delight, and Hottie will be started this summer, but though they are just two this spring, I will mostly focus on ground work and ponying them saddled. I will keep the riding very light and short till next spring. Then they will be asked to bend, circles, lunging, etc… Keep It Simple.
This fall I will be sending Money Mare & ShowCase to the trainers. My goal is by fall to have most of our horses going under saddle. There are mares that I won’t put under saddle, like My Way, I have had her in training for 4 months and it is just is not meant to be, and that is okay, because her happiness is thee most important and she would not be happy.
One of my goals for our program is to breed healthy legs on these guys.
That is the biggest issue I see with this breed. The CPL, salanders and malanders. Controlling and preventing feather mites is critical for the health of the legs as well. So stay tuned as I hope to post more info about that and products we use.
Time to head to the Saturday market while on vacation here in Hawaii.
I put this page together to share our adventures of with our Gypsies as well as sharing tips on hair care, our feeding program, and any general helpful information to pass along.
