This morning, when I went to check the mares pasture, this is what I came across!!
One of the hoops in the tombstone feeder is broken and Chick had decided to help herself to the nice bits in the middle, nothing abnormal, I have seen her do this before, something her sire would have done in a NY moment!!!
I guess the best part of the bale is the middle???
This was Charley ( Doubled up n Blue) in the summer of '08, as a yearling, scrawny looking thing! And this is Charley now, taken today, not looking too bad now!! Still got a ways to go, but at least he is going in the right direction, he is going to be a big boy!!
This is the scene that I came across yesterday morning when I went out to feed my colts, poor Charley, ( Doubled Up n Blu) my 2 year old blue roan colt by Shadow, figured he was not being fed to his standards and had to go look for his own feed!!! Dont you feel sorry for him?? NOT
This would be another of my 3 year old fillies, this is "Chick", she is, unfortunately, an orphan, and was a bottle baby. Seems to be filling out nicely though!!
Chick's dam passed from this world, approx 12 hours after foaling, and , if that was not enough of a loss, I also lost her sire, my buddy, only 3 weeks later, so we have a little bit of a soft spot for this girl. Her reg. name is: SNOOP N TWIGS LEGACY.
This is my big? blue roan mare, affectionately known as "Goblin", she is in foal for the first time, to "Got Country Dun It", a buckskin g/son of the great Hollywood Dun It. She is due in June of '09,. Anyone want to take a guess on the color of the baby???
Well, I better get some more blogging done here in the next few days. I have been at work or at school ALL week, and now finally have a day or two off. Janice from "Own a Morgan", was giving me a hard time this morning about it, so here we go, this is for YOU, Janice!!!!
