The Beginning Of A New Chapter

I welcomed in my 28th birthday this year with the completion of our pasture! The rain held out just long enough for us to finish with all the work that was left to do. Still not as flat as I would like it to be but it is far better than it was a week ago and I just have to except that not everything can be perfect.

Our little stable barn is also on its way and should be completed within the next couple of weeks for now the boys will take shelter in a run-in and they have alot of tree covering as well out in the pasture.

Got the bone for the barn almost all up

Next weekend is moving day and we will say goodbye to the boarding stables
and all the friends we have made hooved and all...
Only a week later than we had orginally planned so I think we did pretty well as far as finishing it on time considering all the bad weather we have been having.

Our next big job is finding the perfect show filly to go along with our boys.
It has been difficult so far deciding if we want a weanling or an older filly.  The only problem I am having with a weanling is that we wont get her until the end of summer and you never know exactly how they will turn out.  It is a gamble for me.  Even with good bloodlines they may not end up with the best conformation or even stay the same color.

We are thinking about getting a solid colored filly that is eye catching a dark palomino, black, roan, silver dapple, or buckskin or if I got lucky and found a reasonably priced filly with a nice looking appy blanket I would consider that too since the boys are both pinto we thought the filly shouldn't be. We considered going out of state about 4 to 5 hours or so to look at some falabella purebred but they always carry a VERY heavy price tag and I really don't know alot about the falabellas and what makes them so special.
It will be interesting to see what we end up with!!
