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…

Miscellany

There are several random things I have to write about and none warrant their own post, so this is going to be all over the place haha.  You know, kinda like my brain on a normal day!  

First, update on my Tough 1 Hay Hoop Slow Feeder.  As I wrote about, my only minor complaint was fitting the amount of hay I wanted to into the net.  I am happy to report the new, larger net is perfect and SOO much easier to fill.  

Not only did I spring for Ellie's USEA horse registration, I also did her USDF lifetime.  Someday she will be ready for recognized competitions!



Dreamy is looking really great this year as we come into spring.  She wintered well despite the prolonged frigid temps and I am really happy with how she is doing.  She still lopes around her pasture and bosses us all around, so I know she is feeling good.  It is really hard for me to believe she will be 28 this year and this is the fifteenth year I have owned her.


It's really hard to get a good pic of a nosy mare LOL

She was looking regally off into the distance and the minute I started taking pics, she walked towards me LOL!  Whatever, despite her weird stance as she begins to move off, she looks so good for her age (and for being a broodmare to five foals before I got her)!
I bought this gorgeous coat with a bit of my Christmas money because OMG TEAL.  Hahaha I need another show coat like a hole in the head.  But I have been resisting for over a year, so I figured if I still am lusting over it, I might as well own it!  ;-)  Do you have this yet, Leah?  Because I feel like you need it too!  


BUY ALL THE TEAL
Also, finally bought these socks hahahaha (after being reminded I needed them by L.Williams).


These make me laugh every time I look at them!
It is currently snowing like crazy and my weather app is saying 5-8".  Sigh.  We are all stuck in the house and I am trying to remind myself spring is coming!  Back to the daily grind tomorrow, as this is the last day of February vacation and school resumes tomorrow.  Happy Sunday!

  2. I love that everyone has those socks! I was given them as a passive-aggressive gift from an old roommate, but I adore them. That jacket is bright! Pretty color though!

  6. That jacket is lovely!! Definitely a great color to usher in spring..... Now if only spring would cooperate! I'm glad we don't have any snow here now, but 5-8" of mud sounds about right.

    1. Oh yes, more snow! And more coming Friday! At least most of what we got on Sunday is gone by now because the temps have been nice and the sun is out. I think the coat will be great on Ellie, too! So now if people don't only remember us because of a silly baby moment at a show, they will definitely remember my coat lol!!
