So since I last left you we only had two foals on the ground since then six more made their appearance and we are happy to report that all are healthy and doing great.
Here they are and respected birthday.
Numbers 3 & 4 decided to share a birthday and it was an EASTER Surprise (April 20) to us to see them both this morning….
Yeller had this cute buckskin filly…
And Dancer our niece’s paint had this cutie
And no white other than socks…hmmm her mama is a paint yet no marking on this little filly.
She has a nice head and is very alert!
So lets just have another foal the next day – ask and you shall receive
April 21, 2014
Lucy had this little colt and his is very easy going like his mama!!!
So as of now we have 5 on the ground 4 fillies and 1 colt.
And they did just that
Foal number 6 came on May 3rd
Candy is a fantastic mama!!
There is always one foal I catch sticking their tongue out at me…
Mark loves to make sure that they get some human attention right away,
He says it makes it easier to train, I think he just
really likes playing with the little ones because they are so soft…LOL
Foals 7 and 8 made their appearance back to back May 5th and 6th
Filly from Babe was May 5th
she was maybe three hours old when these were taken.
after walking about for a bit on unsteady legs they lay down for a nap
being born is hard work !!!
And this first power nap is really lights out
Mark messed with her legs and she didn’t move her head or open her eyes for 20 minutes
Number 8 May 6,2014
Yep I am a STUD !!!
So that is what we have been busy with…
Oh yes and we did this too…
Flowers for Mother’s Day
Walked the foals
Hung out with my mom and my auntie
walked the foals again
sometimes they don’t want to go
then you just have to lovingly train them
Then we went to a band concert
And special people came by for the concert too!!!
Watched the birth of kittens
Both of our mama cats had kittens on the same day at the same time!!!
Camo is getting bigger and loves dirt…
He is helping dig a trench so we could fix power line to barn
We had to replace our frost free hydrant in the barn
polka dotted my car for cancer
Put up a new pasture for Abu
Really MORE rain,
as of Memorial weekend we have recorded 30+ inches
so guess what we did
Cole had friends over
yep more rain
this is camo’s ball in the middle of our driveway next to the mini river
pansies like to be a little on the wet side but this is getting to be too much
Cole spoke at our local relay
Celebrated Father’s day with our kids and Mark got this new tool belt
took a photography class at Itasca State Park
taught by Steve Maanum
While the boys were getting the tractors ready for our first cutting of hay
oh and we played with the kittens
That pretty much is how our lives have gone since we last wrote. Hope you all had a busy, happy Spring as well!
WE ARE READY FOR SUMMER!!!
Here is our foal line up for 2014
