I needed to be home by 2:30 pm so had to quit before we were able to finish. I'm pretty sure I'll be heading back there before Tuesday.
Of course the first thing done once home was to check on Eliza's colt. He seemed a bit better. They were taken outside for a few minutes to see if that would perk him up.
I walked across the pond to check. Mara followed most of the way then stopped to graze on the dam. Mara is a Raven daughter that belongs to Raechel and is here to be bred to Evan. She was covered last night. We won't tease her again until tomorrow morning.
When Emily got home we pulled Galena to get some pictures for our website. Galena is Horsemeister's new mare. She is a Gypsy/Spotted Draft cross but looks pretty much like a purebred Gypsy, hair and all. This mare stands just shy of 16.2 hands tall. Her mane is so thick and long it lays on both sides of her neck, her feather starts at the back of her knee and cascades down around her hoof. Her tail is also thick and long. She has never been bred but we hope to breed her soon to Valiant.
But all of that isn't even the best part about Galena. She rides! She rides nice and has very nice movement.
Mark mowed tonight, right now that seems to be a never ending job. The cool wet weather is perfect for growing grass. Last news of the day is a great email that came in from Jenni about her brand new Evan filly. She writes: Judy,
I know you are busy, but I wanted to tell you, this filly is OUTSTANDING! She is going to be so tall. But best of all, she has a wonderful personality. So sweet, curious and with the right amount of spunk. She is special! And oh the neck on her. Holy smokes. She is going to make us both very proud when I find the right home for her. She needs to be shown!
