Proud daddy Benjamin !

We have ten fantastic puppies… almost all found a new family already, who all can’t wait to get the puppie home. But first we enjoy them some more. They are soooo gorgeous and sweet. Planning some nice things to do with them. They get cuter every day… One more black tri is still for sale.

Foto weather forcast

You can see what weather it is here looking at my photo’s. This is a typical hot day photo, me going to the horses at sundown. To warm to hang out during day time and as you can see… a beautiful day!

Enrichments…

We are still fencing and enjoying the all the new experiences of our farmhouse and fields, but even with lots of land the horses must experience new stimuli. Slowly I am figuring out what I want to do for socialisation for the horses growing up here. Some is very easy… plastic, the sound, the feeling is… for Rockies… interesting (-:

I am looking for a new owner for Yo, She is an 8 year old Rocky mare about 1.56 mtr. tall and has a strong built.
One of those wonderfull Rockies… I would normally never sell, but she is so friendly, so social, she lets every baby drink and therefore does not do well as a breeding mare in my big herd. She gets to thin and me worried.
McGuire’s Yo is a big mare, with a high stepping nice gait, but was only ridden when certified and some trail rides a while ago, so needs a normal experienced rider and/or some training frst to be a beginners horse. But she did real well and was non spooky and forward. She will only go to someone that, like me, will totally fall in love with her goofy life style, a funny horse, sensitive, totally sweet and gorgeous… ALL good and gentle.

Tomas 9 years old !

My beautiful son turned 9 years old today. How time flies!! My nature and animal loving little man, who tries to be kind to all, wakes up happy every day, only grumpy when forgets to eat, does great in school, proud owner of Rose (and some horses (-;), super sweet and sometimes annoying brother, has his own vegetable garden, wants to be a world traveller… half way through his youth already. Be happy my boy!

Schotland visiters…

Came a few years ago and ever since had nice contact… so we were happy to see her again. One of Megan last puppies went to live in Schotland with Haily. And now it was time for an extra girlfriend. Since Raven (Megan x James) is quite a serious dog and Judy/Benjamin only happy happy happy crazy. It seemed better to combine Raven with Judy than Judy with Benjamin. So we officialy have a Schotland breeding station now (-;

September…!

started. We had a wonderfull August, busy but nice!!! All foals are doing great, we had a fantastic summer, kids did great, lots of visiters, swimming, happy horses, walking dogs… ect. And we have new puppies!!!

The kindergarten movie…

New field…

Introduced the baby group into a new field with to many bushes, but they didn’t mind. Snow Flake and San Diégo Mountain Trooper having a good time with each other and the dogs found lots of mice nests in the long grass…

Summer…

And sometimes we have some bad weather… poor horsies.

Our youngters

A few of our youngsters are still in the herd and enjoying some more months of the free life here… Really nice to see them grow more gentle and beautiful every day.

Summer fields…

Like the steppe… our summerfields. 30 Ha of low proteïne grass. Our horses are very happy here, in the herds with babies and youngsters, eating and playing. I love just watching them… making pictures.

Little friends…

Like the african zebra’s we have little birds travelling with the horses. I think they eat insects? Some take hair for nests…

Our two youngest…

… are doing great! They started to play together and adore their father that lives with them to make new babies with mother Raven and Pearl. Or maybe Raven is in foal with Captain…. we have to check. But nice to have a friend of your own age to start playing with!

San Diégo Mountain Trooper is still for sale!

Little boys grow up…

Our baby of last year Spartacus Mountain Trooper is a yearling now, since shortly castrated and enjoying life in our super sweet mare herd. He is getting more beautiful every day!
