He will be weaned and ready for his new home in October.
He is only priced at $4000.00. He is the FULL brother to Skye, the 2 year old we brought in yesterday for training. On our walk this morning Mike showed up with Skye. Skye lived all of her 28 months of life out at Middle Grove with the exception of her first 3 weeks of life and then when she was weaned. She grew up in a big herd of crabby brood mares and they did a wonderful job teaching her herd etiquette. She was taught how to lead from birth to 3 weeks and then Sheena was confirmed back in foal so out they went to that horse paradise. She needed a refresher course on leading. Mike worked on that this morning using first his 4 wheeler and then walking her.
Tori was born July 1st, 2007 and is registered with FHANA but we have also registered and DNA'D her with Friesian Heritage Horse International so her foal will be registered with that registry. We are asking $15,000.00 for her as a 2/1 package with live foal guarantee. It really hurts me to advertise her for sale. As I was explaining to the vet clinic, each of our mares were HAND PICKED to improve our herd. They are well loved and deserve loving homes and only for sale as I am old and getting older. I also don't have the energy since the open heart surgery. When I got home from Hoerr Vet Clinic, Skye was taken to the round pen for some training and updated pictures for the website.
Today she was introduced to the tarp and that was no big deal at all. The tarp was rubbed all over her, put on and pulled off and then left on for her to carry it around. It didn't faze her at all.
Below she is checking out the mounting block completely forgetting she has the tarp on her back.
She turned to look for the other horses when the breeze picked up blowing the tarp up and around her body and even that didn't spook her.HERE. She was put back and all the horses fed. At that point I went in to start on laundry. A bit later I was at mom's visiting with Dan and mom when a text came in that someone booked the apartment for tonight. I left in a hurry to get it ready. All the bedding had been washed but the kitchen, bathroom and floors still needed to be done. This is just a 1 night booking but very last minute. Thankfully I had a box of Stephanie's cookies in the freezer. Those were pulled out to defrost and Stephanie sent a text that I need to order 2 dozen more. Sure hope Stephanie doesn't get tired of baking. It must be the cookies bringing in the guests. After working with beautiful Skye this morning the sky (heaven not horse) late this afternoon was beautiful. The clouds were edged in bright silver with a ray of silver stretching up into the deep blue sky.
Jamie sent the picture below of her 3 year old Valiant daughter Legacy. They have her home from training and Jamie is pretty thrilled with how well she rides. These Valiant babies are the BEST, so easy to train and so gorgeous. She has a thick long mane and tail and should end up close to 17 hands when full grown.
