New Horse, Who Dis?

If you happen to follow my Instagram, you may have seen a new photo yesterday of a horse that looks an awful lot like Ellie, but it isn't Ellie!

It's her momma!
Yes, it is true.  I now am the proud owner of Kennebec Rejoice, Ellie's dam.  To make a long story short, as Miss Gardiner, who owns Kennebec Morgan Farm, is now approaching 98 years old (!!!!), the managers have been placing the broodmares and selling the younger stock.  At this point, there are only three stallions left: Ellie's sire, who at age 25 will live out his days at the farm, a ten-year-old named Triple S Midnight, and a five-year-old named Kennebec Commander.  (So if you know anyone who wants a LOVELY breeding stallion, I can put you in touch!)
Most of the broodmares had been spoken for years ago by former employees and others who already own a Kennebec.  I had made it known that I would take in a broodmare if one needed a soft place to land.  One of the current farmworkers bought Rejoice this past spri…

Catch up time!

Oh, I have been a bad blogger!  Two months is a long time!  How often I think that ought to go on my blog and then life happens, and well......here we are!  :-)

Instead of a long boring post, how about a mess of photos to show you what we have been up to!  :-)


Snappy has been jogging...

I've done some cleaning and organizing in my tack room!  Believe it or not, I sold a bunch of saddle pads and my show pads are in another trunk!  LOL!  Yes, I have a problem...

We now have a jog cart for Snappy...

Clarence has done a little riding (here on Dreamy)...
We are working on those heels!

Sparky is looking fantastic for 31 years old this year!

Snappy has finally decided to accept Nose Kisses.  

Maybe because she likes her new saddle pad???  LOL!

Macky the barn cat has been doing what he does best...

Dreamy has been to two open hunter shows so far...

And we went to a team penning clinic again! 

The trees have finally grown leaves, the lawn is green, and I would say spring is finally here!  Snappy sprouted dapples, too!

  1. I'm a bad blogger too....as I love reading everyone else's blogs rather than writing on my own. I think of stuff to write about all the time.....and then I don't write about it :-/.
    I love the photos. Sparky looks awesome! Seeing photos like that gives me hope that I will have several more precious years with my Griffin (he's 25 this year). My fingers are crossed that the money gods will shine on me next year when the car is paid and I can adopt another wonderful Standie :-). I love your saddle pad collection......I have a brush & grooming tool collection just like it :-)
