    My horse, like Bugs, is an adult orphan. His mom died when he was a couple days old, and he was bottle raised. He is a DREAM to have... he just loves people and being in the center of attention. He is completely comfortable with people, and you can do absolutely anything with him. He falls asleep as I clip his ears and bridle path, he just stands there to be body clipped, etc.. He has never even offered to bite me.

    He showed all over on the line as a baby, as well as doing the IHF as a 4 year old. He also showed all over the east coast at the big A shows in the A/O hunters as a 5 year old. He gets along great with other horses; sometimes TOO WELL, as he and his pasture buddy beat the crap out of each other playing so much.

    He really only has two bad habits; he cribs (very lightly, and not at all with a strap on), and he is VERY VERY VERY orally fixated. But, its sort of his charm too; he loves people playing with his nostrils (stretching them haha), his lips (flopping them together, stretching them out, etc), and even his tongue.

    Usually he LICKS stuff more then actually chewing on it, but he does very much enjoy chewing on lead ropes... he sucks them all the way into the back of his mouth and merrily chews away.

    Overall, he is the best adjusted horse I have ever met. You can take him absolutely anywhere... you just take him off the trailer, he takes a quick look around, sighs, and settles right in. At overnight shows, he is absolutely comfortable as soon as he steps into his "new stall"- he'll be out cold, flat on the floor sleeping withing two hours of arriving. "Worried" is not in his vocabulary.

    Farriers are like cats. They don't like to go out in the rain and they don't come when you call them.

    We have a 3rd foal by Mirabeau. Another buckskin filly!!! Which means she will not be for sale. This one surprised up as she was not due for another 2 weeks and the mare showed no signs at all. Here are a couple photos of her...

    I also wanted to say that the Orphan filly is doing great. She is growing strong and healthy with the help of her Auntie. Will get some new photos of her soon...

    And that the first palomino colt by Mirabeau has been sold...yipeeee!!!! He will be heading to Nevada.

    This is just the sweetest filly in the whole wide world!

    She views April and Tasha as the food source and Auntie as Mom. She is SO funny to watch as she is impatiently waiting for her bottle to be filled!

    This probably worked out as well as a situation like this could possibly have done so.

    Is the little QH filly with you still? Or did she go home already?

    Yes we did have another Orphan here for a few days. The little filly got quite sick and had to have IV fliuds and plasma and daily injections so she stayed here as her owner was not comfortable giving those. But happy to report that we got a call for a SB mare that lost its foal and the mare was brought to our farm. They bonded instantly and when the faol was feeling better the mare and foal went back to there owners farm... yeah!!!! happy endings!!!

    I love the pictures, she is gorgeous! So how many more for you guys this year? A couple more and you're done right? Then it's just breeding all those pesky mares. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif You should be able to be well rested around September. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif
