Have you checked out the Lolli Bros. auction for September 27? They have some beautiful mini's booked, mostly Arab type from one farm. There are some more pics on the farm's website. We better buy our lotto tickets!!
Thanks for the compliment on my page. It didn't turn out at all like I was trying to do it, but I liked it and decided to keep it that way, for now. The petunia on the top is a pic I took one morning when the sun was hitting it just right and I happened to have my camera in my pocket! I really liked it.
Hi, got your note. You are right. I must correct my photobucket album and date the pics, at least as to when posted, but even more, when they were taken ... some being 40 and more years old.
As for Altea: Well, she's happily hanging out with Dakota, the Morgan gelding I was training. Nice five acre paddock and hay etc. About 8 miles or so away, so we see her fairly often. I'd see her much more if the little barn was finished.
I'm still working on the concrete curbing that will hold the base and topping rock in and the stall matts and bedding.
My lumber for the building is all in and stacked nearby, and I've set aside a ton of hay from a local supplier, but of course have to store that at another friend's place for now.
The concrete work is a back breaker, as I do it all by the sack in a small electric mixer. And my old hands seem to be giving out just a bit with the pounding of stakes for the forms, the shoveling gravel, etc. So the project has slowed a bit.
I suspect I might have to winter Altea right were she is now. But in time she'll have a nice snug home.
Hi, i see your minis have a lot of pasture to graze on, how do you keep them from over grazing? i have just got an acre for my mini and i keep getting told its way to much for him, at the minute the grass is very long but i plan to get it topped with a tractor and maybe half it of. Do you have any advice you could give me? also do you ever have any trouble when you need to separate one from the rest?
I can't say because I don't know. The add in the paper didn't say. Don't recall for sure and I don't have the paper right handy but thought they had 5 for sale, a couple of younger stallions and older mares...whatever older is.
I am somewhat knowledgeable in computer technology, obviously not enough. I realized that I should have registered as "MyPercherons". Oh well, you know it's me. I couldn't figure it out how to change it. Much less to add videos and stuff. Took me quite a while to upload on Youtube. Just so you 'll know!
