Stars Wildfire

Here is a little video of our gorgeous black leopard colt at about 12 days old. He is certainly growing quickly, has a very good momma - old grandma girl thinks he is pretty good too! Wildfire seems to like the old grandma an awful lot as well, he sure was excited to see her tonight when I put them all back in their pens. It was pretty sweet to see them touching noses and talking through the fence.

2011 Colt at 4 Days

Our gorgeous 2011 colt out of Pratt Double Secret (wonderful momma) and Stars Fim Koppur at 4 days of age, a little bit more unfolded than in the previous post! He is so tall and correct, awesome. I still haven't decided on a name for him, but will pretty soon. What a character he is, so curious and outgoing. Our second 5 generation foal to be born here at Starmyri. We are getting there slowly but surely towards producing purebreds.....

He Has Arrived!

This gorgeous black leopard boy arrived at 11:55 PM on May 11, 2011. He appears to be homozygous for PATN1! Oreo really delivered (no pun intended LOL) - everything that I had hoped for. He is very tall, healthy and strong. Will post more pictures once he has unfolded a bit more and in the daylight! Absolutely stunning gorgeous head, super long hip - boy is he going to be a mover! Now, have to figure out a suitable name......This foal is not gaited, was not bred to be a shuffler.

Waiting and Waiting!

Pratt Double Secret

We are still waiting on the arrival of our one and only foal for 2011....she was due between May 6 and May 10 so maybe today will be the day! She is so big and uncomfortable and her udder is so full and painful looking. This waiting is so hard and am getting impatient.......:)

What a Weekend!

Got back from The Mane Event in Red Deer last night, what a great weekend it was! I chose not to work the whole weekend in the ApHCC booth this time so got to see many clinics and shop and visit! Worked a few hours on Saturday and Sunday in the CHA (Certified Horsemanship Association) booth and got all caught up on what is happening with the association, it was great. There was two emails already this morning from head office and the co-ordinator thanking us all for our help - so nice.

Even got a good visit in with Josh and his mom, although one had to wait in line :) He is looking forward to picking on me again in September and I am looking forward to getting picked on!!!! Jonathan and family are doing well and Westin is sooo cute with his cowboy hat, boots and jeans. It will be interesting to hear the figures, but I am thinking the attendance this year is up and the number of exhibitors definitely was up a lot from last year. Can't wait until next year and I will be sure to book my hotel early - we had to stay at the Ramada, very expensive is not worth half of the price. Certainly do not recommend it at all. Anyways, got a busy day ahead so must get on with it! Sun is shining, mud is drying and horses are waiting to be rode.......
