Time for our Annual Kentucky Derby Party!

Wow, where does the time go! It is time for our Annual Kentucky Derby Party! So start getting your hats ready! Its the first Saturday of May! Mark your calendars!We have loads of fun and a hat contest! What will the prizes be this year? Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Just sitting and watching the horses go by!

Well its been months now since I had the several surgeries on my knee and major back surgery. It has been a rough ride! I have been unable to ride or handle horses and haven't been out at the barn much since the new baby was born. She is getting so big already. Hoping to get some new photos of her soon. Spring has sprung around here and the wild flowers have bloomed all over out in area. We live very close to all roads and towns that have all the Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brush. It is such a beautiful site to see.

Foaling Time!

Wow, I can't believe it is already time for our new babies to arrive. We are due to have one in just a couple of weeks and the second one a month later. I am kinda glad that they are spread apart this time. Gives me a bit of time in between to take a little nap. ;) Last year we had both colts within a few days of each other. It is nice having two babies at once though when it comes time to wean them as they have a buddy to keep them company through the process. We like to wean by just taking them away from their mommies and being done with it but I have heard of people doing it by putting the babies in a stall next to them for a few days first or across the fence. I have a hard time during the weaning season myself. I don't like to hear the babies cry for their mommies. Maybe I will do a little blogging this year on the foaling process. It is really very exciting. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
