Joann the new owner of Clair called to report Clair had a beautiful BIG baby boy yesterday morning around 6:00am. He is healthy, unbelievably friendly and gorgeous. Valiant is the proud papa. Joann promised to send pictures soon. We are so pleased that Valiant is throwing his daddy's wonderful disposition. So far each of Valiant's offspring have the the quiet, want to please disposition that Raven's foals have had.
We didn't realize how important this was until we bought a half Friesian mare named Xena out of another Friesian stallion and literally could not train her. We thought this was a fluke until we bought a couple of others and had almost the same experience. We want Horsemeister to be known for their wonderful friendly foals, not an untrainable animal.
It is so cold this morning it feels as if it is late fall.
The horses and cows need to be fed and Paris attended to so I'd better put on a sweatshirt instead of a short sleeve shirt and head out.
