So as most of you know I have been looking at a couple horses for a while now, and I am excited to say that I have my first two horses coming to the ranch this Saturday. Nickers is a 25 y/o Quarter Horse and Mia is a 4 year old Quarter horse.

AND

then I found out that I get a BEAUTIFUL paint named Laverne. Laverne is pregnant, not sure how much longer she has till foaling, but I am going to be receiving her AND her foal as soon as she delivers! I am sooooo excited. Laverne is a rescue from an abuse case and such a sweetheart!

Enjoy the pics! (none of these pics were taken by me - but at the homes that they are at now and Lavernes were taken 1-2 months ago!)

Hopefully you have a huge pasture to fit all of these horses in so you don't have to feed them tons of hay. Horses are fun, but too many of them IS NOT! But if you guys feel up to the "challenge" then go ahead :stars: That Percheron mare is beautiful. Percherons are just wonderful.

We have 15 acres that has 2 pens on them, each being about 5 acres. We are planning on seeding and rotating the 2 cattle and the horses from each pen to let them graze. I just received an email from the foster home where Laverne is, and she thinks that she will foal within the next week to 2 weeks and she will call me at the first sign of labor so I can race the 1 1/2 hours down to them and hopefully be there when the foal is born! I am so excited.

I am not sure if we will get the percheron, but we will see. I know that Laverne and maybe Mia, once ready, should be big enough for hubby to ride, but we will see.

Anyway, I need to start dinner and start barn chores.

Talk to you all soon!

They are very nice looking horses. I have to say that the stud is beautiful.

Thank you everyone!!!

Well it looks like the 2 quarter horses may not be coming up this weekend :(

Today we got just over a foot of snow where we are and I had a heck of a time getting up my driveway and my hubby is worried that the truch and horse trailer may not make it up either. He is worried that if the trailer gets stuck that they horses would have to walk up the hill and since they have not been worked for so long and what not, he is scared that they might fall if they walk up the hill on the snow and slush. It is a mess up here. So I am sad and pouting - because this screws up my whole plans.

I was really hoping to get them this weekend, as next weekend I will be gone for almost 4 days (hubby taking care of the ranch) and the following weekend we wanted to go meet my paint (and hopefully the foal). But I am not sure what we are going to do..... I will let you all know!

Pray for lots of sun or rain (melts the snow) by tommorrow morning so that they can make it up the hill!!!
