Mom drove in the procession to the cemetery and the person following her could not keep up. The line was split in two with mom at the end of the first line and the others coming when they could.
We did not go back to the church for lunch as work awaited.
I was meeting Karin at Middle Grove to drop off Oksana and Ayanna and pick up Sangria's filly for weaning. That went well. Jenis and Eliza were called in for their grain, then Ayanna and Oksana loaded. By the time I got back to the barn Jenis and Eliza were finished and ready to be put back out. I noticed a big bird circling around on the wind, I could tell it wasn't a turkey vulture but looked too big to be a hawk and I thought it might be an immature eagle but after studying the feathers I believe it to be a red tailed hawk.
They stopped at the big puddle and started jumping in to cool off. By the time Karin and I got to the puddle most of them had moved off grazing but Mika was enjoying splashing around.
The black horse below had mud on her rear exactly like Ayanna did so when she walked up I thought she was Ayanna. Karin kept saying there is no way it was Ayanna, she wasn't wide enough but I pretty much had her convinced it was Ayanna because of the mud. It was only a bit later that we discovered this mare was Indy. Karin knows these mares much better than I do now. She trains out here a lot and I only see them when I drop off or pick up a horse.
Above is Ripper and below is Hadassah. She has become much more gray than the last time I saw her. She also has dapples. What she doesn't have is a mane. She must have rubbed it off. Oh well her mane grows quickly.
Below is massive mighty Whitney. This mare is just huge. She is expecting a Valiant foal April 5th, 2017. Hadassah, in the picture above is also expecting April 5th, 2017 but her foal is by Evan.
