Below is the sore leg. The lump is on the inside of her leg just below the chestnut. The rest of the leg is still swollen and painful even though she has been on high doses of antibiotics, banimine and bute.
Below she saw me coming and walked up the hill. So if it is cracked it must still be in place or she wouldn't be putting any weight on it.
Soul's filly came running past first. Soul's filly is half Andalusian and half Friesian. She is what they call a Warlander. This breed is very easy to train, athletic enough to go all the way to the very top levels of dressage plus have the sweet willing disposition to want to please the owner. She is for sale for $5000.00.
Zalena takes her time walking over to the pasture but check out those lips!
The gander did not like Emma coming down to the pond and was quick to posture.
He settled down as soon as he realized Emma wasn't going to be swimming near his mate.
Ayanna (left) Rosalie (right) were watching the action between the geese and Emma. These two mares are full sisters both out of Lily by Raven. Ayanna was here to get bred and will be leaving this week for Middle Grove, Rosalie is here for her ultrasound scheduled for Friday. They were both bred to Evan.
Evan was also watching but his nose was right behind a spider web.
Below is Zalena's colt getting ready to gallop across the dam. He is such an impressive colt. He is a purebred Friesian and it shows. He has that long arched neck perfect body and big movement. Did I mention he is for sale? His price is just $8000.00 which considering his quality is a bargain. Zalena and Valiant have fancy fancy foals. He is going to make someones dream come true for sure.
Below is Star's filly. She too has a very nice arched neck. This filly was the foal that got a small cut on her leg and it became infected. She was treated but today I noticed there is still some swelling at the cut. That is another patient for Dr. Hoerr to look at when he comes on Friday.
The absolute favorite here at the farm right now is Lola's filly by Valiant. This filly just loves people. She watches for them and when they come walking up she is the first to show up for attention. She too is for sale and would love a person of her own. She is only $4000.00.
Now I know I'm a little prejudiced about the colt below. But take a look at that LONG neck, LONG legs and short back. He is a friendly fellow but unfortunately for all those interested, this one is already sold. He is 75% Friesian 25% warmblood and has the movement to prove it. He also thinks he is the king around here. He is such a show-off. This is Lily's colt by Valiant.
The other foal here right now NOT for sale is Sheena's filly by Valiant. She is half Friesian half Thoroughbred and will be retained by Horsemeister for our herd. She will be trained to ride and at 3 years of age bred to Evan. She is another fancy filly but the real reason why we want her is this is the first filly Sheena has thrown. Her other 2 foals by Valiant were colts. We were wanting to keep the bloodlines going of Sheena AND Valiant. These foals, besides being absolutely beautiful are athletic and can compete at upper levels with no problem.
Can you imagine the fight these huge bluegill gave as they were being pulled in.
Check out Berlica's face while Sarah holds up this huge catfish. She didn't want to get too close to those stingers.
She has no problem with the other fish in this lake.. as long as she doesn't catch a muskie. Those have huge teeth.
