    Black Nightshade

    Hey, time to check those pastures for Black Nightshade. It comes up quick, blooms, and produces green then black berries which are toxic for horses. Just found a large plant growing next to the barn this morning.   More information: Plants toxic to Horses

    They grow up fast........

    Our little colt, Ty, is two months old now, and boy, can he use those legs! Autumn and weaning aren't too far away as he's already quite independent and mischievious.   Gotta take pictures now and love them while you can because they're constantly changing:

    We have a new foal, and he came dressed for the occasion!

    Our wonderful mare Bobbi (Cedar Croft Blaze N Bobbi Sox) deliverd a beautiful, long-legged colt yesterday at 1:00 in the afternoon. Bobbi not only read the book on foaling, but I think she wrote part of the manual. She has had four foals for us with no problems. Truely a beautiful, treasured...

    We received our pictures from Little House Photography. Elizabeth truely captures the expression and form of a horse, I think. I love how the light reflects in his big eyes. The only problem..........which ones out of a hundred poses to choose! Opinions welcome on which pose you like...

    Clipped a fuzzy-wuzzy fur ball and discovered this!

    Earlier this week I had to clip our filly, born June 3rd. She had been wearing a winter "mink coat" when she was born in some very cool weather. Now that it has turned warm, she was panting and so terribly hot from running around exploring. Here is Loess Hills Dark Elegance, "Ellie" in...

    Bottoms Up!

    This pic was taken earlier this fall of our two little weanlings. They shared a 12 x 12 stall with two feeders during weaning............but both want to share the same one. My husband designed the "feeder" in one corner by mounting a large plastic dog bowl on a scrap of wood about 6" off...

    "Heliocopter Mom" mare that won't let go of her baby!

    She has been "hollering" for three days since we moved her baby to the other side of the barn to wean. He's four months old.........and it's time! We wean so that mom and baby can see each other and touch through the fences, and never had a problem with this much Separation Anxiety! But...

    Spring and foals.........what could be better?

    After months of cool, gray spring weather, finally some warmth, sunlight, and green grass! Finally able to let the "kids" out in the big North pasture for some play and fresh grass. Here's our first foal of the season, "Roller", now a month old, checking out the flora and fauna. We had...

    Our first foal of the year, Loess Hills Aces High Roller, or "Roller" (AMHA/AMHR reg. pending) was born at 11:15 a.m. at 325 days gestation by his dam! We thought it was quite considerate of his mother to wait for a convenient time (no late nights stumbling out to the barn in the dark) Whoo-hoo...

    It's that time of year when the nightshade plants are appearing in pastures. We've even found some large ones growing in a lilac hedge dividing our property. They're particularly noticeable by the little white blossoms before the berries appear. They must thrive in dry, hot weather...
