There was this handsome visitor.
Such a gorgeous PRE.
Gray horses nestle their way in once you own one. It’s what they do. At first, no early sign of addiction.
Then, you find yourself taking pictures of other gray horses…
Maybe there is a problem…
Tomorrow – Thistle Thursday!
Come back to see what that’s all about 🙂
Serrania, Valiosa’s pasture friend, trying out a show.
She’s a young mare who hasn’t been out showing a lot, but schooling 3rd level at home with Alexis.
She was pretty tense with the new experience but handled herself well, – she looks really sweet when she’s focused. (And she’s got the smoothest trot I’ve ever ridden.)
Spent the day as ground help with Serrania who showed First and Second Level, and Calynda who was a star at Training and First Level.
On the side, some goat sitting. Literally.
10 day old on a leash and a bottle. Want to stand out at the show grounds, some extra attention? Baby goat is the way to go!
Check back in this Thursday for another PRE Peep and a reading tip!
You asked for it, so here it is.
One last PRE peep.
This is little Matador, a very friendly 2016 colt.
He’s weaned, almost ready to move in with one of the stallions for a while. Super sweet, and will be the only baby available in 2017. Unless someone snaps him up real soon.
Closing with Botijo. On a no good hair day.
Wow, 8 weeks of PRE Peeps!
It’s been fun sharing quick shots of them, and I can tell you’ve liked it too. Next week should be the last post on this. (Unless someone throws a little withdrawal fit about it.)
Today, a look at some special ladies.
Castiza, shown through Intermediare 1, currently on a little break from the showring. An incredibly substantial and tall PRE mare, she rules the large pasture.
I don’t have any flattering new pictures of her – this one below will have to do, from some time back when we both had ended up at a lunging clinic.
Hermosa, Young 1st Level Mare.
One of the few available for sale now.
Taking pictures out there is, complicated…
Trained through Grand Prix and shown through Intermediare 1 in the U.S., he’s got a bit more relaxed life now. At 20, he still looks very handsome.
