It sure has been awhile since we've updated the blog! We had a wonderful Christmas celebrated with family and friends. Kassie was spoiled rotten and is now ready to ride with her brand new saddle. She rides Doc and when asked to come down she says "No thank you".
The barn is full of youngsters. It has been great having Kareen here and new to the crew is Amos Abrahamson. He came for a few days before Christmas to test it out and will be back on the 2nd. We have some to start and my dad is getting to the age where its not necessary for him to be doing that! Sshhhh
Rana and I both have some nice prospects for this next futurity year. I actually video'd some of them today so that I could post their progress. I have Hitch's little brother Diesel...he's actually bigger than Hitch! He definitely doesn't look like a 3 coming 4 year old. He feels awesome and strong but light mouthed. I also have another cutie we call Lisa. She is super fun and little compared to Diesel. She is out of Generals De De and by Kiddin N Streakin "Generally Streaking". She feels very cowy and easy to handle. Rana has Sweetness looking really good and Flint too. Flint is out of Docs Baby Sue and by Kiddin N Streakin.
There are more to talk about but I'll save them for another time. If I can get these video's loaded you can have a sneak preview of Super Sue and Floozy. Super Sue is Doc's only full sibling and Floozy is my past futurity horse Flair's (Streaky Girl) baby.
Besides the barn activity...Logan has cleared a great ice rink off for all of us to use. He even put the pads on so that my little nephews could take shots! Nathan is busy keeping everything fed and thawed. I guess when you are an Edwards you must take on all responsiblity of the Edwards waterers! Which are working just fine minus a few freezes thanks to a blown breaker.
I hope you have a great new year and that 2010 is the year for you!
There's certain people that have
a love for the land.
And to other people, it's just dirt.
But that love of the land,
and love of a horse,
I think it's inborn
This was Rana's Christmas present to our dad!
