Harvest Festival- October 2012

We try to go to this local "Harvest Festival" It is fun for the grandchildren...
 AND the big boys are out elk hunting

Let's have some FUN!

Do you think I need to get a PONY?

Grandchildren are the BEST!


MFTHBA used one of my photos on the cover of their magazine! (The horses in heaven-- I mean in the pasture!)

FALL 2012 in Covered Bridge Canyon

I must admit, I live in the MOST beautiful place! Yes, I pinch myself! Here are some fall photos of my favorite things! 

SPOTS before my eyes!

COOL! Look at these SPOTS! 

"MO Cache"-- "Sapphire" x "Dallas"

"Cache" (weanling) and "Sapphire"

"MO Alladdin"
 "Cream" x "Dallas"(his spots are a little harder to see!)
"MO Dallas Cowboy"
"Gypsy" x "Dallas" - yearling (His spots are hard to see! They are darker chestnut spots!)

"Dallas" a few dark chestnut spots, and some       white spots! 
Soooooo..... I check my horses in the pasture... the palomino weanling has rub spots on him? I keep checking him, the later in the summer, the more spots he gets! I know that I did NOT breed his mom "Sapphire" to an Appaloosa, I recall breeding her to "Dallas"! Handled that one myself! Does he have a skin problem? The spots are all over, same size and spaced pretty even.
    Looking it up, I find out "Dallas" has "Bend Or" (name of a race horse) or medicine spots! He has dark spots and white spots! (I was told it was because he is out of a roan mare! ) The spots show up on chestnuts and palominos! Sure enough, Cache, Alladdin,  and Cowboy all have the SPOTS! Way to go "Dallas"!

I'm hoping to get a horse crazy kid out of this generation! It skipped my children for some reason! Look at the pure joy on Andie's face! 

Eddison was Gramma's helper! We pulled three big leaf bags full of burrs from the horse pasture! What a trooper!

John trying to persuade Andie to give up her horse! Chad is patiently waiting to put Saylor on board! They compromised! Rode DOUBLE!

John (6'4') and Charlie on "Manzanita"

Kara (9 months pregnant) riding "Manzanita" aka "Mansey" with Saylor. 



"MO Dallas Cowboy" is ONE!

  • "MO Dallas Cowboy" is 1! Is he gorgeous! "Cowboy is out of MO Foxtrotters' "MANE MAN" ---"ZGC Dallas" and my first fox trotter mare: "Pryorview's Gypsy Rosa Lee", aka "Gypsy".  "Gypsy" (deceased 2011) was a 16.2 hand mare with tons of heart, and endurance! Morlin's favorite gelding- "Business" is out of "Gypsy". One nice mare! There are also three of her colts that were kept as stallions! They are that NICE!  
  •    "Cowboy" is for sale--- I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER STALLION! to approved home- $4,500 obo. If not sold by summer 2013, he will be gelded and my husband has claims on him! "Business" is almost 20! Time to retire him! 

"Cowboy is gorgeous- coming- or going!

These photos are taken of him when he was a yearling! "Cowboy" looks like he will be over 16 hands! WOW!
