No Babies this year, 2016!
This may come as a surprise to many who read this. Why would a breeder not use their mares as much as possible? There are many reasons but this one is the essence of serendipity. Two beautiful foals last year, five fillies the year before and we have only sold two of the fillies. One lovely to a fellow breeder and another to a family who fell in love. At the end of the season (2015) we thought we would take a break as we would be in training mode with all these youngsters and we are in our golden years….nuff said. As is turns out, the decision was perfect as we are now spending a great deal of time traveling back and forth to the cancer center at Mercy in Springfield. The out come is good but it is time consuming and emotionally training as it becomes our new job. As I write, there are two young ladies feeding the herd and tending to all that needs done in the evenings, in spite of a hellacious wind a blowing from the North! They are among my angel crew. The others are dear friends who provide some of the transport as well as spend time with us. In case you have never thought of it, visits are uplifting and therapeutic. All apart of good patient care. What the Docs cannot fix, friends make up for! So there you have it! Enjoy the photos and know that these will be three this year and will get to learn a lot of new things!!!!
