    2 1/2 weeks till we leave!! here are a few that we are taking and how they are looking......

    remember GiGi?? the little filly that what was the last one born, her momma developed a severe case of Mastitis and also ruptured her milk vein some how. we almost lost both momma and baby! this was her right after she was born...


    and Gigi now all clipped (just a rough clip tho!)


    fat and healthy now!

    and then there was Ava, the little pinto filly out of our blue roan mare missy
    ava right after she was born:
    see how she seems solid sorrel and white pinto>? lookit her now!!


    shes not a pinto, shes a pintalossa!! LOL!

    then, we have Twitch's colt dash, he is sure a looker!! he was born blacker than ebony...


    and right now he looks blue roan!


    thats 3 of the 4 foals born this year Bonkers the first born im not body clipping him till the day before the show to accentuate his color :p so you have to wait!! lol

    Tanner , our Black 36 inch mare ..

    then Angel our Bay roan mare

    then there is mikey, we show him in almost every class.. halter, in hand trail, driving etc

    we are taking a total of 12 minis to the fair, lots of work but totally worth it!! We cant wait!

    I [​IMG] minis! They are so much fun.

    Foal colors sure are a puzzlement, aren't they? Blacks are born grey, and greys are black at birth, roaning often doesn't show at birth, and appies - they are a guessing game in themselves!

    Have fun and good luck!

    They are so pretty! Our neighbor has a cart pony and my sons helps out with the chores when he is away and loves every minute with the pony. We are hoping to get him one down the road!
