Going, going, GONE! Salem and August are sold and will be going to their new homes in just a couple of months. We wish them the very best in their new homes. Salem is going to make a wonderful family trail gelding, and you'll see August in the show ring as a stallion. We strive to get the perfect match every time and think these homes couldn't be a better fit for these two. We will miss them dearly, but can't wait to see updates on them in the future.
They're growing so fast! Salem is shedding his baby coat to reveal a beautiful black coat like his mother's. And August is looking like his Grandfather SD Flash Harry! Both of these beautiful colts are searching for new homes!
Last Foal of the Year
Misty gave birth to a beautiful colt! We can't wait to get his DNA results back, but it looks like he may carry silver! The colt was born happy and healthy. Misty retained her placenta, but with the help of our wonderful vet we were able to get it out in one piece. She is being a perfect first time mom and we couldn't be prouder of her.
Tweetie Takes an Orphan!
Amazing news!!! Since Tweetie is such a great mom, I thought I'd reach out to the community to see if there were any orphan foals in need and I found one! We got the foal over that day and attempted to graph her on to Tweetie, and to everyone's pleasure it was an instant success! She loves her new baby and the filly is doing much better mentally and physically now that she has a mom. She lost her mom at only a few days old and hadn't been doing well. Now she is bright, alert, happy, and packing on the pounds.
Salem isn't so sure about this girl coming in and stealing his mom, but Tweetie still watches over him and considers both of them her foals. This mare is worth her weight in gold.
Salem is Healthy and Happy
This family is as cute as can be. Salem still gets to hang out with his mom and new sister out in the pasture every day. He is so gorgeous. However takes him home is going to be so lucky.
Little Hiccup, but Getting Better
Poor Salem is having a hard time, he had milk coming out of his nose, so we took him to the CSU Vet Teaching Hospital. After running some tests and using different imaging methods we found that his nursing technique wasn't quite right, causing him to get milk into his lungs. So we have taken him off of his mother, and put him in an adjacent stall and removed some of the boards so he can still see his mom whenever he wants. But can't nurse from her. He'll be getting a mare's milk replacer for another couple months until he is fully switched over to hay and equine junior feed.
The doctor at the hospital said he gets a gold medal for best foal she's ever worked with and the students all fell in love. It's hard not to with this sweet boy.
Growing Up Fast
Wow! GGV Stray Cat Strut is getting more stunning every day! His striking blue eyes capture everyone's attention, and his calm, loving personality captures everyone's hearts.
Say hello to GGV Stray Cat Strut! This handsome colt came into the world at 3:30am May 24. He is so handsome and soooo sweet. He had a rough start though. It took him a week to figure out the whole "nursing" business. But thanks to Charleen's quick response and many sleepless nights, he is now nursing like a pro and 100% healthy. We will share more pictures soon.
