It has been a while since we have posted any goings on! Even though there was only one foal born on the farm this year, it still seemed very busy. Perhaps it was a lot of non related horse events that caused the summer and early fall to fly by!
Our colt, Dannsair, was injured the day of the Hanoverian foal inspection in September and could not be evaluated. Naturally, we were a bit disappointed with that, but the important thing is his recovery. He is a wonderful colt so we are giving him rest and taking it day by day.
On to more positive news: Donahan has been sold! He will be leaving soon for his new home in Maryland. I have really enjoyed working with this amazing horse. He has been the most sensitive of our youngsters but once he figures things out, he really shines. He wants to do the right thing and is so willing. He is going to going to a super home and I am looking forward to hearing about their progress.
Meanwhile, we have retired one of the broodmares, Donatasha. She is now the designated senior to keep the youngsters in line! One of our other mares, Safira is home now after being away on a breeding lease. She is going to be put back under saddle and it will be so nice to be riding again 🙂
We are expecting two foals this year. Highland Lily is in foal to Zhivago and Florencia is in foal to Benicio. Very excited to see these crosses in 2022.
