Monday we got the chance to head out to the pasture where the yearlings live. I love to visit this group of babies, because they are all so friendly. In fact, they’re darn hard to photograph because they’re so friendly. I hadn’t been out there in about a month and it’s always nice to see how much they’re growing.
Some of you will remember that we had two orphaned foals on the place last year. One of them, George registered as (DX Gorgeous Georges) is the orphan we knew about- as his mother died when he was about month old, and we had him in so we were able to bottle feed him all summer. He is just about the sweetest horse around, and I hope he stays that way because, well, we could use another bay stallion running around the place! There’s a bit of sarcasm thrown in there, because we have 4 studs, 3 of which are bay. But because of his breeding he’d be a great out-cross to what we have going here, so we shall see.
Here, is what he looks like now:
