Things are going full steam ahead for winter! I feel like a squirrel collecting all my food for winter LOL
We are done showing, done breeding, and now get to do all the hard work. Babies are being fussed with daily and so are their mums. Getting the mares ready for winter. I evaluate all of the girls body condition and what they need or don't need as far as nutrition and pasture in a certain field according to that. Babies are getting feet trimmed, some second trimming, learning tying, and patience. Something mum and baby can do together. We have 4 foals weaned and the others will be weaned when they are 4 months.
Our French family has grown a lot, Abby is gonna have her first litter this winter. So much going on LOL
We have 6 new mares coming from England, one, Lady Jane, who I bought 3 years ago!!! So I waited till she was old enough to breed and shipping her home! I would have brought her years ago, but other horses kept taking priority and Bonnie didn't mind having her around.
We are getting Savvie and Holly going under saddle lightly this winter, and hopefully getting Holly in the show ring if that girl would let her mane grow out LOL
Oreo did fantastic his first official year under saddle and is gonna nail it next year. Legacy I am training 3 days a week and early next year step it up to 4 times a week to get ready for showing under saddle. Caspian is gonna be one of my main show boys for next year!! So it should be a great show year! I have three breed shows on the books and will be showing dressage with Oreo mostly. I may see if Caspian is ready for a training test, we shall see...
We have some fantastic boys available, Dubs is gonna be BIG! Cody is getting gelded, and will be available on payments for one year. Squishy is gonna be a stunning mini Gypsy colt or even better gelding! Bagheera, we are growing out. I really love him mum, she is one of my forever keepers, so I want to hold onto him till I have a filly out of her:)
I gota head to the feed store! Cheers
