Wow! It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of January! I hope
everyone is enjoying the start of a New Year and looking forward to many
fun and exciting things in 2012. I have just finished doing quite a few updates
to our website so look around and check out what’s new on the ‘For Sale’ page and
who we are expecting foals from in 2012.
We ended the year by gelding our 14 year old Senior Stallion, Sami’s Pipe N Hot.
We loved the foals he produced for us but felt we wanted to take our breeding
program stronger in the direction of ASPC and ASPC/AMHR. Pipe N’s personality
has always been busy and 100% active no matter what time of year it is! So we
decided to geld him and see if that calmed his attitude some. He has always had
the fullest mane and tail and since I love Fresians I think I am going to let him
grow his mane and tail out and then I’ll have my own little Miniature Fresian. I
can see how fancy he would look pulling a cart with all that hair flowing and
his prancing steps. So far his prancing is still there!
We’ve had a very mild winter so far so this might actually be the year that I
really do get show horses into the barn in February and get conditioning started.
My intentions are always good but then I wimp out in the cold weather. 😕 I have
some ideas on who we would like to show this year but we shall see what actually
happens by spring when we know our summer schedule better.
Until next time I wish you a cheerful winter!
