    Default They leave tomorrow!

    I can't believe they're almost here! They fly from Dublin tomorrow, land in New York, and travel to NJ for quarantine. If all goes well, they will leave Sunday, and arrive in GA on Monday!

    They're here!!! Dr J and Muskoka you've already seen, but for the rest of you, you can find pictures and video on our facebook farm pages.

    My farm, Fade to Grey Farm: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fade-t...02177169829068

    My mom's farm, Brambleridge Farm: http://www.facebook.com/BrambleridgeFarm

    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!

    Of course, SH Funny you should say that though; they actually DO smell like Ireland. Not kidding. They still smell like hay silage and straw bedding!

    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.

    Uh - couldn't do what? Start a new thread? Why not? You can't be serious. Why don't you think the death deserves a new thread?

    I am not usually such a wimp.

    She definitely DESERVES her own thread. I just can't make myself do it. Don't really know why, but every time I try my fingers freeze.

    Your fingers aren't freezing posting on this thread. Sorry - makes no sense dear.

    Default New Pictures of the babies - December 2012

    We introduced a 'babysitter' to the weanlings last week, so I took the opportunity to take some photos.

    You can find them on our facebook pages:
