Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter everyone! And a glorious day it is. I would like to introduce our newest addition, Pratt Double Secret, who just arrived from Oregon on Friday. We are very lucky to have the opportunity to purchase such a well bred old line mare, one of the last of a superb breeding program. There is a good chance she is a shuffler or will produce shuffler foals. I will add more photos as we go along, as her red clay henna job washes out with rain and we begin training her. We have decided to start her under saddle this summer, quite exciting. We plan to breed her to Stars Fim Koppur for an elegant, dressage style foal. You can view her pedigree on the Allbreed Pedigree site.

Finally a better picture of our pony mare that we bought for our granddaughter, Catherine. She is out of quarantine now and we have started playing around with her. She has a fantastic disposition. Will be some time to totally evaluate her training level and start getting her feet looking proper. Going to try to get some better photos of little Belle, AJ's pony today too.
The kids will be here for dinner, pie and apple crisp are made, stuffed turkey is in the oven. Girls are upstairs putting the final coat of paint on the little bedroom. I love it, pretty, sunny yellow. Much better colour for a north facing room than blue. We plan to head outside soon and go do some "baby belly" watching, maybe see some foals bouncing. Gotta do some Easter egg hiding for the munchkins to find later too. All in all, it should be a good day.
