1-2-05 Happy New Year Everyone! Hmm, plans for the New Year... Well, our black and white mini schnauzer is due to come into season, so we're planning on puppies. We're expecting 9 foals (7 from our double Silver Mane's Pierre Cody grandson -- we're really excited about them). Some of the mares he's bred to are also Silver Mane's Pierre Cody granddaughters or double great-granddaughters, so we're hoping to get some younger, almost pure Cody stuff. And for once, think COLTS! Hoping to finish our Scotch Label son, Roulette, in performance...or rather Jim Curry will finish him. 2004 is a year I'm sooo glad to leave behind. My mom died; Cayenne died, a palomino filly died, just a bad, bad year. My main plans for 2005 are to smile (a lot) be happy (hopefully) and to wish good things -- for the whole world! Happy foaling, breeding, showing and living to you all. Ta, Shirlee
We plan to be more involved with showing this year as well. I have a filly and colt (in addition to Majestic) that I will show R this year. Then of course another colt and filly in addition to Majestic that I will show A this year.
We also will be incorporating some Arenosa blood into our herd and intensifying the Rowdy line as my Mime daughters - and Rowdy grandaughters are getting old enough to breed now. We will send some mares out this year in order to accomplish this.
