New ponies from Scotland have arrived!!! - NEW Photos Post 36!
As some of you know, we travelled to Scotland back in May and selected three new Section B Welsh ponies to be part of our breeding program.
Well.... they have finally arrived this morning!! The waiting was just torture -- I was just tied in a knot by the time they actually got here! So nervous about whether or not I'd done the right thing, what if my husband didn't like them, what if they were smaller than I remembered, what if they lost a ton of weight, what if they didn't get here at ALL!?!?!?!?!? If you can think of the "what if", I had the thought! LOL
I can breathe now! They are here and they are fabulous! I'm so excited!!!
The new arrivals are:
*Wedderlie Marmaduke - yearling Section B Welsh colt (bay)
*Waxwing Martini - yearling Section B filly (palomino)
*Mynach Manilla - 3 year old Section B mare (bay)
I had a super hard time arranging transport home from Canada for them. It was just one hang up after another -- everything from one poor guy having someone hit his (empty) trailer to one that was going to park them someplace for a few days while they delivered elsewhere (wasn't going to work for me) to a guy that quoted me a price of $11,500 to bring them from Ontario to Oregon!!!
I ended up using Performance Horse Transport, and they were absolutely WONDERFUL. The ponies are FAT and were very obviously well taken care of on what ended up being a 9 day trip home from Ontario. I got an e-mail every morning with how they were and where they were at that time, it was great. The drivers were fantastic -- really nice horse people. I'd definitely recommend them!
Oh happy day!

Congrats! They are lovely! I know you are feeling better now they are home safely. My weanling stallion prospect colt was shipped this time last year from S. Dakota and he spent over 6 days in route due to bad weather and delays. I was a basket case by the time he finally got here.
WOW! Just loooked through your trip to Scotland photos and you got to see all that fantastic scenery and all those fantastic ponies and then got to bring some home????????????
I'm not even sure I can describe my level of envy right now.
Congrats on your new additions, all are fabulous.
You jump in the saddle,

Jump in the line!
