Spring is in the air!

We are having unusually nice weather for this early in the year & everything, including the trees and the grass, seem to be enjoying it & perhaps getting a little ahead of time. I have finally had time to start to work with the yearlings and they are a challenge. 🙂 But I love to see how their personalities react to being asked to lead, mind, have their ears scratched, etc. I also find it interesting that some bloodlines are more prone to have certain personality traits as well as there being a difference in personality traits between miniatures and shetlands. I know that I find the shetlands to be the most curious and very sharp when it comes to interacting with the human counterpart. The warmer weather definitely makes it more fun to spend time with them and work on their social skills. Last year’s foals were sired by D&S Tom Collins, AE Bey Star, and Outlaw’s Thyme for a Surprise so there are 3 ASPC yearlings and one ASPC/AMHR yearling that are currently in kindergarten. I hope to be able to do some updated pictures of them before spring arrives on the calendar. In the meantime, enjoy the day in your part of the world!
