I thought you might like to see what our little guys are up to this summer, so here’s a few photos from today! This first one is Ataya. Oh. My. I try to make the best selections I can when I choose mares and stallions for breeding, but really, in the end, it’s God who puts the genetics together in certain ways. I really can’t take credit for this girl, but she is just fantastic.

Just look at those darling ears and that lovely head profile!

And here is Sedelia. She is not a foal. She is carrying a foal. And nursing a foal. Please excuse her for having her head down eating grass – this is the first time in her Life that she has really had grass to eat. So grateful for the 5 or so inches of rain we received a few weeks ago!

No worries girl, keep eating!

This is not a foal either, these are some of the wildflowers that make the pasture pretty.

Just a sunny Sunday afternoon in the mare pasture.

Spirit loves loafing with his mares and foals.

It’s too hot to do anything today except eat any way, so just keep eating guys!

Never mind that I’m sitting out here in the hot sun, hoping to get an action shot or two.

Here’s lovely Sedelia again – creamy palomino Sedelia! And that’s the colt she is feeding – he’s taking a nap right now.

Oh, here’s our Ataya again. Do you see what I mean? Look at her clean, flat chest…..and how lovely her neck comes up with just a natural arch even in this relaxed, unposed stance.

And oh, that sweet face.

Have I said oh. my. yet? She is on the sales list, but really, there is no reason why she shouldn’t stay right here and join our broodmare band some day.

Can you imagine her crossed with Palermo or Solen?

She makes my heart sing.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 371

 

And skip a beat.

Just look at that width across her chest….

Good night. And that hip!

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 366

 

I thought we needed a close up of that one.

Just natural beauty.

There is Sedelia’s colt again ~ Tate Sapa. He is still taking a nap.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 328

 

Oh, now he woke up! I did my imitation turkey call – works every time.

And here is Yuwipi.

Yes, he really does have two blue eyes.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 192

 

And he can fly.

These are Nabesna’s curls still hanging on. Sorry you don’t get to see the whole horse, she was standing under the camera at the time.

The creamy ears of Cahota still hanging on. But you can see the black curls coming in. Cahota is a smokey black.

Ataya’s dun stripe and tobiano.

Here’s the whole (almost) Cahota ~ I love the way they do their baby shed. He will have a long mane this winter.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 529

 

Tate Sapa is asleep again. Turkey calls really don’t have that much effect.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 519

And the real whole Cahota. Smokey black.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 533

 

And our darling Ataya again.

Yuwipi Ataya Cahota Curlies in flowers 6-29-2014 499

 

And again.

Hope you had a peaceful Sunday!

Who’s a man?

Curlies Spirit Cahota Tate Ataya MayB 6-6-2014 012Angel’s Spirit! That’s who’s a man – and he makes my heart sing. And melt. Being in his presence makes you glad you are alive – his power and beauty are evident – but his kind way and loving soul are what turn you to putty. Can’t even guess how many folks he has won over for the breed – newcomers and life long experienced horsemen as well – he’s just that impressive. And better than how he himself is, is how he works – his genetics as a breeding stallion are irreplaceable, as he is not at all stingy with those genes, and he freely passes his great characteristics on to his foals. Spirit adds a particular uniqueness to his get, and his foundation bloodlines seem to shine through with each foal! Not many stallions can claim that – but we think Spirit deserves this recognition, as his offspring have truly been exceptional! In fact, we have held back several of his daughters for our own herd, and they are really special fillies! We currently have SIX stud colts available for sale from Angel’s Spirit – in a rainbow of colors and a variety of coat patterns, a great opportunity for someone on the search for a future herd sire. These sons of Spirit have great potential – and might just be the next big step for putting a breeding program over the top! Curlies Spirit Cahota Tate Ataya MayB 6-6-2014 013
