We visited one of our favorite places – Greenstone Farm! Where’s Stu’s little life came into being! They already have a bunch of foals, and then they have sweet little yearlings that I remember from last year as foals, and of course, the big guys, Stu’s sire, and Ollie’s sire. Here is Stu’s sire, the […]

Weanling Walk

Over the weekend we did Weanling Walk 2: The Reckoning. Weanling Walk 1 is here.  Weanling Walk 2 ended up being much better! Who would have thought a sequel would have been better than the original?!  This time, I stuck a camera similar to a GoPro on my head and recorded the whole thing. The […]

Stu’s First 6 Months

Getting to Know Stu

Stu has now been on my farm for a week and a half. He was a bit shy when he first arrived, but he’s really come out of his shell now. He was shy, but curious before, and now he’s not as shy, but still very curious. He loves to start mischief, and one of […]

Saturday was the day I have been waiting for since last Sunday evening. Stu came home! Finally, everything was in place, and we were ready for the babies to come home. We made the trip down, and it was so nice to see both the babies and all the other babies on the farm! Stu […]
