Horseback Riding Lessons in a Nutshell

Kaitlyn Jekyl (above with Wyatt at her holiday ride in December '11) rides with Nicole on Wednesday nights. Kaitlyn presented us with this beautiful book she made about her riding lessons and we thought it ought to be shared!

Kaitlyn's brother Cole is also a most excellent artist and helped Kaitlyn out together these treasures for Wyatt.

Congrats Foxy!

Easter weekend Foxy had her first foal, a filly! Everything went well and both are happy and healthy!
Foxy's registered name is Definitely a Fox. Her sire is Define Good. The foal's sire is Chic Please.
So far the suggestions for names have been: "Definitely a Foxy Chic" and "Chicken Please".

The buckskin mare is now four weeks over due and looks like she could foal out at any time.

Genzanit, fondly known as "Dunnit" or "Donut" around the farm, and I participated in our first show together over the Easter weekend. Dunnit is Coco's dad, for those of you who recognize the name. He has been shown numerous times as a 3, 4 and 5 year old, and has spent the last 7 years breeding. This past weekend was his first show in a long time and his first show, hopefully of many, with me. We went to Michigan State University and competed at a Michigan Quarter Horse Show in the Open Reining. We schooled on the Friday night in the show pen, Dunnit came alive in the show pen, as aged horses do. Saturday we loped through our pattern quietly and ended up third out of twenty-plus entries earning 2 AQHA points. We're looking forward to a fun show season!

Mom Team 2012

We are looking forward to a promising year for foals this year! Above is "Smartie" who is a amaiden mare and is in foal to Genzanit.
This is Nic who is also a maiden mare and in foal to Genzanit.
"Bucky" or "Hollywood" above, has had two foals previously and is in foal to Chic Please.
Foxy is a maiden mare in foal to Chic Please.
Can you guess which one will foal out first? What colour the babies will be? Fillies or colts?!
