PJP Baybee Doll 2 months
WH PJ Piglette & PJP Baybee Doll 1 day old
WH PJ Piglette
I have managed to finish one month and this is actually one that I shot today. Not much color in the sky and had a mixture of cloud and sunshine.
This mare is called WH PJ Piglette. I wont go into the history of how she got her name LOL but she is a rescue mare who we bought off a PMU (Pregnant Mare Urine) Farm when they lost their contract with the pharmaceutical company for using the urine to produce oestrogen. When they started using a synthetic product for the oestrogen they cancelled their contracts with a lot of these ranches, a lot of which were in North Dakota and in Canada. They had hundreds of mares, foals and stallions on each farm and that flooded the market and a lot of them probably ended up in the kill pens. It makes me so sad to think about it. The horses on the farms werent always very well looked after and she was in pretty bad shape when she arrived here and she was in foal. She has the sweetest disposition but has obviously been abused because if she panics she is very hard to handle and is very wary about her head and ears being touched. The baby she had was a beautiful little bay filly which I called PJP Baybee Doll, I will include a picture of Baybee too with "Miss Piggy" which is what I call her, she does love to roll in the mud. I just wish I could have saved more of them. Baybee was a day old in this picture.
Still icy cold here, but there was no wind today which made it more bearable so I was able to put the horses out for a few hours while I tidied up a bit in the barn. I didn't achieve much as it is still too cold to spend long periods out there.
Hope you all had a good day.
