Pretty much the same photos on both, but if you haven't already 'liked' us, and would like to follow our programs, please do
They have been very well behaved, and we heard nothing but good reports from the travel agency and shippers. I definitely suggest shipping youngstock together like we did, they are best buddies, and arrived in fantastic shape. The filly (tall light grey) is a little tucked up, but all three are eating, drinking and pooping. I could not believe how full of beans they were right off the trailer, we thought they'd be tired/sluggish! They played quite a bit this evening, and we were blessed with overcast skies and light rain, so I think they feel at home!
The dark colt (big blaze) and filly have only been handled for the last couple of weeks, and I'm impressed with how sensible they've been. We are quarantining them for a couple more months at my mom's farm (we moved her horses to mine); she doesn't have a barn so we were concerned about being able to catch them. We're leaving halters with a short 'catch' rope on them for now, and thus far they have been easy to catch. I don't think it will take long for them to figure out that they get food and scratches from us!
This seems to be the most recent Connemara thread, so I am reporting it here, rather than starting a new thread.
I am sorry to report that Anne Frey, breeder of Landgate Phoebe and Landgate Bluebeard, among others, died this weekend in New York.
Uh - this THREAD isn't a "Connemara Forum", just a thread. I think in all due respect your post DESERVES it's own thread. Not difficult to do. Just tacking it onto a thread about someone's imported horses arriving? Tacky. Geesh, Janet.
