DNA Testing....

Had a phone call from Debbie today, who is the lady we brought Katie from. She wanted to know if we could go half on a DNA test for Goytre Edward who is the Sire of Neo and one of her ponies. Agreed straight away as I've been requesting the hairs from Eddie's owner for over a year, but to no avail. All Stallions that are assessed need to be DNA'd for the stud book. Luckily for me Warrior's Sire has been fully DNA'd but Evelyn hasn't, which is not a problem as she is here with us at Hericus and I have already got pulled hairs from her mane.

The SPSBS are talking about having all foals DNA being done as they are registered, but are looking at ways to keep the cost down. It currently costs £40.00 per pony.

Mick & Bev's Newbie...

This is a picture of my Cousin Mick & Bev's new boy.
Mick went out to Holland to see him and brought him, he was brought back by transporter and arrived at their yard on Saturday. He is a Hanoverian.
I'll keep you updated on his progress.

Popped to Diane's today to pick up the wormers she had ordered. We buy in bulk so it cuts the cost down at least a couple of pounds per tube. Also got some shavings and horse feed. Came home and proceeded to worm most of the ponies just 7 left to do...
My cousin Mick & Bev have put Warriors dad Blenheim Badger up for sale as Bev is no longer breeding shetlands. The advert is on Shetland Pony Web- Gerry Hart's site if anyone is interested. There is a link to the site in my sidebar.
Also spoke to Bev about when we should be hearing the patter of tiny feet! The foals should be due at the beginning of April, it will be such an exciting time...

Been out in the fields with the horses today.. Took quite a lot of short video clips, which I'll hopefully get loaded on here tonight. Tried to load one video on here, but unfortunately it's too large and blogger won't accept it. I'll have to try and upload it to UTube and then post a link for it on this blog. I do like this video feature on blogger, the only draw back is it takes ages to load.

The weather has been really beautiful here the last couple of days, so I took both the Stallions coats off and gave them both a really good brush, their winter coats are coming out in huge clumps. As I took Cravat's coat off most of his winter coat came with it. I'm off now to put their coats back on, as we are expecting a frost again tonight and I don't want them catching a cold....

Getting To Know You....

These pictures were taken last year, not long after Athena had been born. I used to put Athena and her mum Min out in the little paddock during the day and back in the stables in the evening. I love these pictures of Harry & Athena getting to know one another. Harry adores Athena and the feeling is mutual....
