Yearling Updates

Here are the two long yearlings - Stars Little Spot fewspot colt and Stars Sleepy Kitty, filly. Both are developing into very nice horses, great conformation and good minds. They are for sale. Neither of them are shufflers, but have great movement.

Are we ready?

"Sunset at the little lake by BW"

October has been a super busy month here at Starmyri......lots of things to get ready for winter! The weather was not so nice overall but we got 'er done. The new hydrant is installed in the barnyard (working great), the woodshed is full of split wood, hay is in the hay yard, logs are all skidded and piled in the stud pen, most of the limbs etc. have been piled and ready to burn, fencing done, roof replaced on chicken house, horse pens all cleaned up of poop, tank heaters installed etc. etc. Just need to get the blade on the quad and we are set....looks like we may need the plow soon! It is snowing so hard out there today, getting way more than was forecasted (how unusual! Don't think we can have a Halloween without snow!) Poor Mireike, our last farmstay girl, was very short changed in the weather department.....we had fun just the same. Sad to say goodbye. So now we settle into our winter schedule, get caught up in my office work, and housework (yuck) and hope for some nice days to play with the ponies. I sometimes really love winter for the fact that I get to go feed and visit my gang twice a day, every day. I so enjoy spending the time with everyone that sometimes doesn't happen in the summer months when I am so busy with other things. Have to get the Regional 4H record books judged in the next three weeks, an interesting challenge.

Already the end of October!!!!

Stars Dark Angel went to her new home yesterday. She is joining her sister, Stars Bright Penny. They managed to get there before the snow started, yay! Thanks Ben and Karen, I know you will be enjoying this beautiful girl for years to come.

HSRAC Trail Ride at Starmyri Appaloosas

Starmyri Appaloosas hosted a trail ride for HSRAC on September 12. It was well attended, weather was awesome! Everyone had a good, safe ride and ate too much afterwards at the BBQ!

Rest In Peace little man

Our colt, Stars Storm was killed on Monday, September 5 by a cougar. We are pretty sad and upset about this whole thing. Miss the little guy a lot.

Magpie's First Trail Ride

Magpie went on her first trail ride since coming to Starmyri. She did good and seemed to really enjoy herself. We had a good ride, weather was perfect. Mike, my farmstay fellow from Switzerland, is on board.

Some pics of the trail ride at Tawatinaw Valley Appaloosas on Aug. 22. A great ride and had a lot of fun with everyone. BBQ supper was very yummy. The big ole Totie was actually pretty good considering that I have hardly ridden him all summer. He's a good boy.

Stars Bright Totem

This is "Totie" my 8 year old gelding. He is a big boy....too big for me! So, he is available for sale for the right price. Broke to ride, sound, very strong with a lot of stamina, Indian Shuffler. Love him to ride, but I do not need a horse this big at my age! I also have another young gelding prospect for myself that I will start under saddle this fall. Totie would be a great ranch, endurance or eventing horse.

Little Boys

Spirit and Storm - getting pretty big!

The Big Boys

The big boys are back together again - breeding season is over for another year! They are pretty happy and content, back to playing and rough housing like usual.....

Special Moments

One of our "special" visitors! As you can see, the big horse has a wonderful disposition and loves children. Of course, all safety rules were being followed......

Sad Times

Betsy 1994 - 2009

Ice 1997 - 2009
We had to say goodbye to two of our faithful companions this month - Ice on May 6 and Bets on May 12. Miss them tremendously, both were exceptional workers and friends for a very long time. They chased many coyotes, wolves and bear in their day!

Spring has Finally Arrived!

We finally are getting real spring weather - yay! I even got a bit of sunburn yesterday, will need to bring out the sunscreen which is awesome. Getting lots of mud and bare ground showing finally. Also, we actually got to go for a ride down the road without being buried in mud! Very exciting it is. Magpie (Airbourn Sidekick) was definitely enjoying the weather.
