Coyote Story and Maisie Picture

Jill at Buckskin and Bay has a nice story about the horses at our barn and a coyote in this post, and here's a picture of my sweet Maisie waiting for her breakfast at her new digs down in Tennessee - thanks for the picture, Melissa!


Today, I'm going to be trying to set up a visit to Minnesota to see horses #10, #12 and #20.  The ad for horse #12 is no longer up, and I'm not sure what that means, but perhaps will know more today.  The earliest I can leave, due to other commitments, is Sunday, which means I'd be seeing horses on Monday and Tuesday if the sellers can accommodate me on those dates.

More later on drug testing in horses and also an update on horse #18.

  1. Howdy, You got my vote for #10 River Lena. The Lena bloodline is very strong for quality quarter horses.I have seen the Lena line out here in the Ozarks. You will have a great mare.

  3. Wonder what happened to #12's ad, I like both 10 and 20 but out of the two I think 10 is very nice I'd give her a look and ride. Although 20 is also a sweet looking horse, you never know until you see them in person and ride them. Glad I'm not looking for a horse right now I'd bring them all home with me! Good luck.

    Maisie looks adorable waiting for breakfast.

  5. Uh oh... if #12 is sold Kate is going to think that I'm buying all these horses out from under her... the ones I like keep going off the market! I swear, I'm not collecting an army of trail horses over here in NJ!!

  6. Good luck with the horse search. I hope you get an instant feeling of connection with one of them that will make your decision for you.

  8. Aw, that's a shame, I liked number 12. Lovely photo of Maisie and so good to read that Dawn's x-rays have come up clear, and if she's looking sound right now then hopefully it was just a silly tweak :)

  9. Great story about the coyote...I like her descriptions of the horses' various attitudes and actions.

    The horse search is getting me confused at this point. I have to keep going back to the pictures. Hope you are keeping better track than I am.

    I'll be interested to hear how the plans for some tryouts work out. ...or as they say on "Top Model" how the "go sees" go! *lol*

  15. Kate, Such a lovely photo of Maisie! And what a beautiful view of the farm. I enjoyed the exciting story of the horses and the coyote on the other blog. Dawn is so brave!

  17. I am looking forward to hearing more about the horses you will meet in this journey. I am especially fond of Peppy, for no real reason in particular. I wonder if the sellers know what a great horse person and caretaker you will be for their horses?! I hope so.
    I wish I could ride bareback. I have tried it in the ring and love the feel of it, but on the trail I am a pure chicken when it comes to bareback riding. I do love how your horse looks at you as if to ask you a question directly. That is thoughtful and very advanced!for.
