Jenis came over to see if I would give her attention. Emma was with me and she thinks it is her job to bark at the horses that come up to the fence.
Once the horses were fed Giselle, Roxanne's 2018 filly by Valiant was taken out to to get some updated pictures for the website. She is such a beautiful filly and inherited the mega hair.
She also inherited the big movement from her sire Valiant AND will be tall. She does not look like a yearling and yet she is not yet 14 months old.
Who ever ends up with her is really going to love her. She will really be the fantasy Friesian everyone wants plus can be bred at age 3. She is for sale for $8000.00 and is registered and dna'd in the Friesian Heritage Horse Registry, papers are in hand.
Karin and Kayla arrived and worked together to spray for weeds in the outdoor arena. When they were done with that they brought Evan out for some clicker training. While they were working with Evan I took the opportunity to move a new bale in his paddock then moved a bale feeder from the field and put it in Raven's old paddock for the yearlings. A bale was moved in that feeder and Isla moved over first. She was not sure she liked being in there all by herself.
She was galloping around tossing her head while waiting for me to bring the other two over.
She is another of our special foals, she inherited the mega hair from her dam Madiera and her height from her sire Valiant. Rhoda saw her today and exclaimed, "Isla is really beautiful!" I had to agree. I'm just surprised she isn't sold but since she can be bred to Evan in 2 years we don't mind if she doesn't sell. I'm only asking $5000.00 for her and we would not be able to buy something of her quality for that amount so am not negotiable and that is probably the reason she isn't sold. I just won't take less for her. She is registered in the WARLANDER book of the Friesian Heritage Horse Registry and her papers are also in hand. I finished moving the yearlings before Kayla finished with Evan so got a few pictures of her working with him.Below she is giving him the cue to lay down.
He looked over at her to ask, "do you mean now?"
Another tap and down he went.
He really is a beautiful stallion.
Karin put Evan away and brought out Valiant for clicker training.
He did well too.
She asked him to lay down and then sit.
Both boys are such a blessing to our farm. They sire gorgeous sweet HAIRY foals with amazing movement. We have been in business now since 2002 and I really don't think we have an unhappy customer in all these years and well over 300 foals.
This afternoon a bunch of us met over at mom's to play games. We laughed so hard at times we could hardly keep the game going.
This evening is cousin night at the apartment. Rhoda and Sarah are providing the meal but everyone is bringing something.
I put together full crockpot of lasagna for the meal tomorrow at the playground. For years Rachel hosts a big labor day picnic and all are invited. The lasagna has cooked for 3 hours, is cooling for an hour then will be put in the fridge for over night. It is an easy dish, serves a lot of people and is tasty.
