Well, we had another one last night. Wynona graced us with a lovely colt sired by 3/4 Caspian, Khamain’s Curious Kiwi, from Fresh Start Farm in Missouri. He’s the the beginning of my love for Caspian Horses. The last 1/4 is a combination of TB and New Zealand Station Horse.
There’s nothing like slogging through 8 inches of mud to do chores. After our record snowfall 2 weeks ago, we got hit with another storm; over 3 inches of rain last night. Glen named our new arrival Rainmaker, as it seemed to fit. The wind gusts were so high when the two storm fronts hit, that they flipped 4 sheds and 5 windbreaks. But we sure needed the moisture. I brought Texas (Caspian mare) home from training yesterday and when I turned her out, the horses were kicking up dust.
We just can’t seem to get going forward for cleaning up after storms.
As you can see, Rainmaker is a nice big colt; we just hope he will stay pony size. We were able to get Wynona because she had a tendency to throw small fillies. The pictures aren’t great, but he is very correct and already an awesome mover. Although a mousy chestnut right now, a few grey hairs in his tail suggest he will go roan, like his daddy. Pam Bishop tells me Kiwi was also a mousy chestnut at birth. So without further delay, here are Rainmaker’s birthday pictures.
