GRAYMARE

The PHBA has changed a lot over the years from the original registry, when the ideal was four shades lighter or four shades darker than a new copper penny. How do you think this one will turn out? Will he be in the copper(goldfish sheen) family, the blondies, or a chocolate in his summer wear?

Horse coats can be very unique. I have one that is registered as a bay, he's close to what some people call a wild bay, but he has sworls of black hair on his neck that almost look like dun factor
that if he had a dorsal in any manner he'd be able to be registered with the Buckskin Registry asa dun.

APPY probably remembers all the rules from time gone by.

Ol man, I think we need to get pics of all our menfolk wearing yoga pants, it would give us gals a giggle for sure Rolling Eyes Shocked Wink Laughing 

Tuff, there r so many rules on colors and so many new ones, its hard to keep up. man we r getting rain here at my brothers place in mo, I'm thinking I may have to grow webs between my toes!

Puppies r doing fineee and getting plump, took bluey in for a checkup as she had a bright red discharge but vet said give her 48 hours and that she should stop. he also said she is in fine shape for having pups, and hubby pipes up,well she is getting eggs and chicken and milk with her nutrical, she is so spoiled she won't touch her dry kibble....vet laughed and said he wished everyone spoiled their dogs. he says he sees some pretty skinny mama dogs come in. my vet in mt. home asked me what I fed my dogs cuz even after buffy my dane had 13 pups she was in exellent shape, he said he wanted to pass it on to others that couldn't keep weight on their dogs.

Even after all this rain my skin is dry....go figure....


Have a great weekend. we r going to horse auction tonight and a goat, chicken auction saturday, then meeting with friends for a few days before coming back to my brothers.

It's going to be another busy weekend. Donnie cut the upper hayfield this afternoon. We'll bale it either Sunday or Monday. I hope the weather cooperates! This is a bigger cutting than the lower field was. He saw three baby deer in the field, but didn't have any problems with them. They were old enough to avoid him easily. It will be great to have this cutting finished and not think about hay for a few weeks. I just started feeding the horses the hay from last weekend and they aren't wasting a bit of it, they like it.


Lori and I took Areion and Ivan to the New River Trail this afternoon. We put hoof boots on Areion's front feet and she didn't have any hoof problems. We had a nice ride, although a herd of cows being worked on in a field down the hill from the trail was making a lot of noise and both horses acted like they were very concerned. We danced around about that for a little while. We had to pass by the same herd on the way back, so got a double dose of horsey concern.... Rolling Eyes 

We cantered a little on the way back. The first time was pretty smooth, both horses cantered and then slowed when asked easily. The second time they decided to speed things up and we flew down the trail. I saw a road crossing coming up and decided we had better slow down, told Ivan "Whoa" at the exact second a big black crow swooped across the trail in front of us. Ivan stopped in his tracks in a single stride from a fast canter, nearly throwing me over his head, but I had just grabbed his mane and only climbed his neck a bit. Lori had been experiencing some Areion antics and was more prepared for the sudden stop that I was, but she nearly plowed into us from behind. The crow flew on without a backward glance. After retrieving my heart from my throat, we calmly walked and trotted the final mile to the trailer. All in all, it was an exciting ride. Very Happy

TUFF, many color rules/requirements have changed in color breeds as now, upon registration they can be genetically tested for color.  Eli will be tested along with his DNA testing and whatever color they state he is will be on his papers…………….he will be palomino something……………..LOL.  He appears as if he is going to be darker blondie type but we shall see.

ARK, oh man……….hay.  You will be beat but your hay will never give you any worries about quality so that's a real perk.

CB, big congrats on your pups.  They will be so fun.

Good luck with your graduation party SUNNY.  Hope your weather holds and everyone has a great time.

The CT pic was great to see again………….gosh, how long ago was that?

OLMAN, glad you & Virginia are fine.   Enjoy your summer and your added hayfield.

Everyone have a good week end…………….

We are looking into the baler out of self defense. The few people around here that will come and bale are so careless about it. I just had for acres cut, but let them take it. They easily managed at least 12 5x5 rolls. At this time of year it's mainly fescue and clover. But they left it drying too long.

I can probably get 50 40 lb round bales per acre. The fescue comes up with a fairly
thick stalks in the spring when it gets it's growth spurt before going semi dormant in the heat. June through Sept. the bermuda grasses take over. because of the nature of Bermuda it will probably not yield as many bales.

My neighbor is supposed to come over with his sprayer sometime in the next couple of weeks after we get the field cleaned of any left over debris. Debris spots seem to attract Johnson Grass. I go out and hand whack most of the Johnson Grass with Roundup using my hand wick. I really have to go back and find the plans for building
a wick bar to use on teh back of the riding mower. At certain times the Johnson grass is inclined to shoot up six inches above the bermuda grass and I'd really like to nail it then.

Time to get ready for the Purina Event at TSC. They may be giving out the punch cards for buy 4 get one free. Would help since we use Strategy in our feed mix.

AI has made DNA testing a requirement for many horseowners. I had several added tests run on Chip before his prepurchase appt.
