The Pasture Down The Road

The owner of the field finally found someone who would cut the field we wanted to use and bale it so we could move the horses on but she wanted us to get the horses there as soon as possible. She only called yesterday just before middday and I managed to get hold of Stan who, God Bless Him, waited for me to do a shoot in the evening and then came over with his trailer and helped me load four horses and get them to their new home. I sent the three two year old fillies and my filly Lori because she is looking a bit on the thin side.

There is tonnes of grass there so I am going to have very fat horses by Fall for sure. I am so happy about that.

I have had a couple of very hectic days and am heading to bed now, hopefully tomorrow will be better but thought you might like to see some pics of the fillies in their new field.

Taxes is getting gelded tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it, but he has just become too unmanageable to keep as a stud with no-one putting time in to train him.

Have a great weekend all, my thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone around us who is suffering so badly with the floods, Mike I dont know if you are affected, I will go check your blog quickly but am keeping you in my thoughts.

I love the way you got Lori's mane flying in the air in the last pic. She is such a pretty horse!
Talk to you tomorrow.

Hi Lori,
Beautiful pictures again, and beautiful horses, congratulations! :-)
Here in PT we love our Lusitanos a bit on the fat side as well ;-)
Good luck for Taxes gelding. I know how that goes. Mine was gelded last year, he was beginning to become too suicidal, even with everyday training :-( It was a good option, he is a very happy horse now! Everything that seemed to bother and annoy him is just an item of curiosity now. :-)
