BLESSED ARE THE BROODMARES!






I’m feeling a bit under the weather so I’m resurrecting a post from 2 years ago – exactly –  on Mothers’ Day.

Although I no longer breed, I so miss the babies…

And, I miss the broodmares – they are truly amazing.  Not only do they protect the herd and keep everyone in line, but they pass on their individual and unique skills to their babies…

My Tess, for example, taught all of her babies to potty in one spot.  Sam taught her baby how to ‘circle the wagons’ during an invasion.

But what was most fun for me was the ‘surprise’ inside aspect of horse incubation… I loved the anticipation of what gender and color would enter the world.  In fact, when I rescued Sam who was 10 months pregnant, I had no information about her or the stud.  So, the baby was a total Grab Bag Surprise.  I loved that!

For me, looking at the baby and seeing which traits came through and from which parent is very exciting to me.

I should have been a geneticist.

Anyway, I grabbed several pics off the web to celebrate the broodmares this Mother’s Day.  I hope you all have a great day!

    I know that Sam is your “love me from a distance” girl. Did she let you love on her baby?
