Yes, unfortunately.
I have put up ads on internet, in newspapers (koopjeskrant) but I can not seem to find someone or a farmer with some extra space. And I live where there still is a lot of space, but the fields are all full of cows...

In the area where I live there are people who buy peices of building land for investment or their children and they let horse owners use this peices of land as long as there is no-one building on it. Maybe you can put an ad on Kapaza.be ?

I already did so on kapaza. :wink:
I have found some land that is for sale but the prices are enormous. How can someone pay it, and it is just land, no hous or anything.
I need to move :lol:

I love the third picture, she looks very proud!

How old is she now? Because she still looks very young, especially in the pictures of her head.

She is only 1 year and a few months but she is almost as big as Evita already and twice as clever :wink:
But furthermore still a real filly.

Oh yes, she's cute!
I had a horse years ago in half pension, she's called Imperia too. she was wonderfull, she was a hackney horse. Today she is unfortunatelly dead in very bad circumstances but I bought her soon who is my horse since 8 years now. I do love him so much, but I still miss Imperia...

Are Imperia's tears from flies bothering their eyes? Tamarack was having this problen very badly, so I carefully cleaned around his eyes with organic, unpasturized apple cider vinegar and it cleared things up. I think it kept the flies away...I can't think any other reason for it to have worked so fast. I was very careful not to get it in his eyes. I put some on a small cloth, and just cleaned his face with it, and rubed some on his hair around his eyes.


Imperia is very pretty!!!

Beautiful to read she has such a special namesake.

Her eyes are just leaking water every now and then, she has no real eye problem or irritation luckily.
During the day when flies are around I put on a flynet to prevent them from gathering around her eyes. Vinegar is a very good idea!

Evita is making exercising with Unico(rnio) in the future very easy. She teaches him herself :D
5 days is old enough ;)

Look, this way you grab a trug and bring it to Bianca

Unico gives it a try :mrgreen:

This video is made about 1,5 - 2 years ago. I practiced with a halter for an open door day at the stud-farm where she was born. It was not possible to let her do exercises freely there...
At the open door day she was so impressed and happy she saw her family again she only did one step of Spanish Walk. I said to the organisers I only would show her and wouldn't do any exercises so there was no pressure and it was great fun! 8) Haha Josepha was there and we didn't really know eachother back then, who could imagine what would happen years after ;)

The video shows a very eager Evita, she thought the halter was strange and uncomfortable to practice in but is still such a good girl! I was so restless back then :?! Unfortunately I don't have the same footage without the *&@*@& halter .. and see many mistakes but also mistakes are no shame to show ;) It shows also the early stages of the teaching of the spanish walk.
Ignore my funny high voice :lol:
