A lot has happened in the last four years. My last post described how our lovely Thoroughbred Moyie was pregnant. Her foal was born on May 16, 2016 - a beautiful big colt named Moyie's Royal Outlaw (or Geo for everyday use). HIS first son was born on May 31, 2020 - another beautiful big colt, named Color Me An Outlaw (Mercury), out of our Quarter Horse mare, Color WithinTheLines. Although Geo is not genetically guaranteed to produce a colored foal, Mercury is very definitely well marked and a true APHA. At 19 our mare was on the older side for a first foal, but other than a thankfully minor complication (on top of going through an entire year of pregnancy, she failed to pass the placenta so we had to have a vet come out and assist with that potentially deadly situation) she has been a wonderful mother. Moyie is now 26 and still acts like she's two.
The other big news is shown elsewhere on the website, on the page headed "Books Available"! I was able to secure a publishing contract with Skyhorse Publishing and we have now released two books, one on horse care and the other on foal breeding. They are both available from all the usual outlets, but for simplicity I have used the Amazon links on the page. Feel free to purchase from your favorite book outlet though! If you do buy one or both, reviews are greatly appreciated.
And now I'm out of coffee, so I'll sign off this post and go get a refill.
Happy riding! x
