Hi Bianca

Amazing horses.

Did you never thought of having of foal out of Atreyu?
I have the idea then they live forever trough their foal. I have a mare as well and hoping one day she can ave a foal... But what I would want the most is a clone :wink: or just her forever by my side!

Yes, I tried to get her pregnant years ago but it didn't work out. She is now 28 so more a grandmother than a mother. She has had a foal before she came to me I can see that she gave milk. But I don't know anything about her past so can't trace a foal. I also think she is irreplacable so why try? ;)

Yes, this is true, they are irreplaceble.
But some times I think that I would have something of her... I don't know yet. If I found a nice big field for her and a nice stallion... Maybe she will be happy being a mother.
I once heard something that a mare best have the first foal before the age of 12, because afther that it can be a problem?
Is this correct. Because she is 11 now and she acts still very young. Like me, I also don't act like my age :wink: . So i rather waith but I don't know if that would be a problem or not.

I thought the same about Jamie and sice he was cover stallion in spain I tried to find offspring.

I did, I found his daughter Lilly and she was for sale... I did not do it.
For what I found was misery.... A horse so miserable and abused I did not want Jamie to be confronted with that all over again now that he was finally at peace.

Even more so, because of the fact that he and his daughter were together and abused by the same person... who actually thought he loves his horses...

yes, it is sad. I thank god you saved one of them. We can not save them all (when I look at some terrible videos it makes me want to buy all the animals: horses, cows, pigs and give them a happy home). But what you did is great.
In some years when I have the change of getting a big field or something I want to save a horse as well. Save a life and make the horse happy for the rest of his life!

oh, do not thank me :oops:

I am just sooo thankful to have a person like Jamie in my life... and I indeed wish I was a millionair so I could have every animal who wanted to, to live with us and be free :)

Well I indeed feel very very blessed!
For Imperia and Evita to much grass is not so healthy so they only can go on the grass for short periods (stand in a sand paddock most of the time) and Atreyu likes hay more :roll: so it is growing to hard for them to eat... luxury problem I guess.
We looked for over a year to find an affordable home with a piece of land and were so happy we found it!!

:shock: :lol: *Rolling off my chair with laughter* :D

But beautiful pictures of a beautiful pasture indeed. How much land do you have in total? Could you let them live off it the entire year if your horses would tolerate that?

But indeed, Blacky and Sjors could only dream of such a pasture. I guess that there wouldn't be that much to photograph then either, seeing that they would be totally lost in the grass! 8)

We have +/- 8000 m2 and it is said that you have to have 2500 m2 per horse for them to eat during the whole year. But a piece of the land is also a garden with our house and a riding area. I wanted to make all into a pasture (saves time mowing) but my Ben didn't agree with that ;)

hahaha, indeed your horses will have a blast playing hide and seek over here :mrgreen:
