I know. I love raising the babies. But I am very very particular about where they go when they are sold. I check the people out and their facilities. Call me anything you want but I don't want my babies going where they are going to be mistreated or not taken care of.

Wow! They really do look like twins! Were they born at the same time? Couldn't have been very far apart. Do they have names yet? Come on, I KNOW you call them something!

He's a very pretty color and now I see where the young un's got theirs. Must be lots of work raising horses and lots of money goes into it. I bet you get some big bucks for the ones you sell How many horses do you have and how many do you keep?

We have downsized in the last couple of years. We had gotten up to 16 broodmares and 2 studs. We now run 8 broodmares and 2 studs. Since my son's death, my daughter, son in law, hubby and I are the "sole providers" for our small herd. I love it, it is my passion. The most expensive horse that I own is my favorite, Miss Mindy King, which cost me 5500.00. But she was well worth every penny of it. Our other broodmares range in cost from 1000 to 1500. We raised the stud that was pictured above from a colt. So we have had him awhile. Our other stud, which is pictured below, was bought as a 2 year old at 2500. We sell our colts from 650 to 800, depending on the color, disposition, confirmation and intelligence. It is an expensive hobby but one that I love dearly. It helps keep me "young" (lol) cause rain, shine, sleet or snow, they have to be fed and watered daily. I love the babies and enjoy seeing just how much I can teach them in the 6 to 8 months before they are sold. Below is a picture of Haidas Gotta Gun, our other stud.

Blondie is now 90% blind. But she knows her way around the pastures, where the water is, and where the barn is. So she is doing ok. As long as she is getting around and not getting hurt I will just let her be the pasture baby. The colts stay with her a lot, blondie always loved the babies. They take care of her and she babysits them. Mindy seems to know when it is going to be a thunderstorm, she goes over by Blondie and if it gets too bad she takes her in the barn. Strange how animals help each other.
This is Diamond Lena Pep, better known as "Blondie"

Yep, she is a sweetheart. When we first got her you couldn't touch her. She didn't want to have anything to do with people. But with some soft voice, gentle touch and just "hanging out" around her, she came around. One of my better horses. So now I will take care of her since she is handicapped. I do love my animals.
p.s. she would enjoy the attention Bartender
