She grudgingly stood in the middle while Rebekah rode Indy and Karin rode Rosalie around her.
We couldn't be more pleased with these mares. These are home bred mares and sisters all 4 sharing the same sire Raven. Indy is out of our full papered mare Ylse, Oksana is out of Eliza while Ayanna and Rosalie are both out of Lily. All 4 are truly gifts from God.

Jenis and Ira, the new Gypsy mare, are working out well together. There have been no squabbles and they are sharing the round bale just fine. They don't share grain buckets but neither mare is protective. We will need to have Ira sonagrammed when Dr. Hoerr comes on Feb 4th. Her past owners told me she was running with a young stud colt (another purebred Gypsy). They don't think he was old enough to breed and she was only 2 years old so they don't think she was old enough either. They are probably right but we may as well make sure before we start our breeding season.
This evening Mark put his car in the indoor arena and hooked the snow plow up to the skid steer to prepare for the snow storm. The fire has been burning brightly in the living room wood burner all day and more wood will be brought in tonight for tomorrow's fire.
My cousin Janet shared this photo of a Kingfisher on Facebook. I thought it was fascinating. We have Kingfisher's here and mom was always quick to point them out when they were diving for minnows.
