What a busy few last weeks! I made a trip up to my home town Alaska, Ketchikan! What a wonderful time. I really needed it as I have been a bit home sick and need my Alaska fix LOL. I have decided to take two Gypsies up to Ketchikan the summer of 2018! I am gonna try and work all our foals due before or after July so we can go and no worries.
I flew home Monday afternoon and then hit the road Tuesday early for Vancouver BC to take Ellie to her new home. I could not be more pleased with her new digs and Ellie's new mom is a special lady who will love Ellie for the rest of her life! I had no intentions of selling Ellie, but with moving our breeding program forward and having a fab non breeding home for her, I couldn't say no! Ellie is going to be a stunning example of the breed and in her new digs she will have more attention than she knows what to do with.
Now to find Hiccup a wonderful home. I truly love that little man. He is not phased by anything and is more than happy to rest his head in your arms and call it a day:) He is sale pending, waiting for contract back. If his sale falls through, I may be a sign.
We have acquired another 38 acres for our horses and looking forward to having them on quality pasture year round! I am very picky about letting our horses be horses. I do stall some in the winter, but they get tuned out everyday for at least 8 house. 6 of our 9 stalls have runs. This year we will only be stalling 4 of our horses and all the rest will live outside 24/7! I haven't decided who will be on my winter fitness list, but so far Teddy, Carson(Jacks AQH), Dixie.
Master Plan is going to start driving training 11/1/2016!! I am so excited:)
Our new mare, The Lager Mare, is a driving machine & is being put in-foal to SD The Don! This no doubt will be a keeper if it is a filly, if it is a colt, it possibly will be up for sale!
When Janey Down first sent me pictures she KNEW I couldn't ask Jack if we could get another Gypsy! I didn't even ask any questions, I just forwarded them to Jack and he wrote back, when are we getting her:)! Oh, I was tickled pink!! I fell in love with Lager over photos, but after seeing her in person, I couldn't even believe she was ours! She takes our breath away and I would keep walking out to the pasture she was in at the farm and just stare at her! Lager will be coming over this winter after she has settled in foal.
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.
