Maybe Stallion

Here is our trainers Fox Trotter Perlino Stallion. He is a sweet tempered stud and he 
produces buckskin foals.

Showing how he "parks out" for easy mounting.

Riding with just string. I noticed the stallions large hooves, good for trail riding.

Unique eye colors. I am not a fan of the blue eyes, but the foals have dark eyes.

The trainer just hopped up and put the stallion though his gaits. We might breed our Maple, a Fox Trotter to this stallion when she turns three. We are waiting to see if she is a good horse under saddle and worth breeding. Maple's mom was a great safe horse for anyone to ride. This stallion has the qualities I like in the Fox Trotter breed and his foals are very nice and athletic.


  1. And what color is your mare? You will get a buckskin or a palomino, from him!

  2. Or is black, a smokey black!
    Perlinos are wonderful for that dilute color gene.

    The QH breed missed out on a lot of color genes before they accepted this one.

  3. Maple is an olive/dark brown mare with red highlights. I always wanted a buckskin horse but do not need one. There are so many unwanted horses out there. If Maple proves to be as great a horse as her mom was, I might breed her.But Maple has to grow up and prove her worth on the farm.Right now my hands are full training my babies to be useful horses.

Big Black Beetle

I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.

Hoofing It

The other day a friend came by to give a hoof trimming lesson to my neighbor. She raises champion goats and offered to show us how to trim goat hooves. The auction goats had neglected feet and needed serious trimming. They must have been confined for a long time to get at this level of neglect. So after a goat holder was made the trimming lesson began.
The auction goats poor feet. They caused her to walk poorly and not be able to forage since walking hurts.
The hoof wall has folded under the hoof. Careful trimming with very sharp trimmers.
My husband on the left, Cathy and Rick on the right. Goat audience around the show.
Left hoof is after and the right hoof is before.
The goat thinks about all this.
Serious fold over on the second older female goat. After the trimming both goats walked better.

Puffy Adder

This is what was lying across my driveway last week. It was a spreading adder or spread head as is locally called. It is a non venomous snake that eats toads and frogs.
I liked its markings
I got the whole hiss song and dance from this snake. It did not want to move off the driveway.
Such a cute tail all curled up.
