These pics are the same horse, just a couple months apart!! Sire is a Blue Roan, Dam is Black, anybody want to take a guess on his color??? A smoky black perhaps????
Ok, the U of C, Davis , California, say he is a base color, no cream dilution, so I guess he is black after all!!! no change in the papers!!!

The Church at Tong, both old & new


This is a photo of the church at Tong, Shropshire,England. The current one is on the left of the picture, whilst the pile of stones on the right is the remains of the original one, that is mentioned in the "Doomsday Book", just though you might be interested.

Sad News

Some sad news to share with you all, my blue mare, Goblin, had a spotaneous abortion of a set of twins on Feb 21, one of them had died a while back, and put an end to both of them, she is doing well, I gave her a shot of Oxytocin to make sure everything was cleaned out, as well as a shot of long acting Penicillin to make sure of no infection. Guess we will just have to try again this spring.

On the Seventh Day: my home church, in England
