This all happened very quickly!
As you all know, I was formally a small Morgan horse breeder/show person. I lost my last two Morgans within a few months of each other, a few months ago. Gwen was Mama Tess’ first baby and Wrigley was Mama Tess’ last baby. It was tough on me.
Yes, I have plenty of horses. I hear you.
BUT I WANT A MORGAN.
So you heard about Isabelle. She came into the fold because she was left at our vet hospital… and I was feeling weepy. Besides, she was probably a Morgan! So she came here.
Probably a Morgan? My weepy thought process: Then I can maybe breed her to one of my favorite stallions that passed several years ago – and have one more baby!
But, it turned out that Izzy is only half Morgan… and I am a purist. I couldn’t waste straws of precious frozen semen for half a Morgan mare.
Then I started looking for Morgans already trained for trail. Nope. Then young Morgans… all very high priced. I joined all the networks, websites and FB pages. Hmmmmm.
And then I found out about these two. A breeder in Colorado had a fence accident which brought forward more foals than needed this year. The breeder advertised the excess babies. The babies were all sold except one (a red-headed filly). Hmmmmm. Although I felt moved to help… I didn’t want a baby to travel any distance without a buddy.
I asked if Mama could come, too, not thinking the breeder would agree. Mama, as it turns out, is only 3 and seemed to be very loved by the breeder. (The oops pregnancy.). I think since the breeder was a bit overwhelmed, she agreed! Yes, I could have Mama and baby both – and they could travel together. Wha? Really?!
And that’s how it happened.
Both are 100% Morgan and both are papered. And both needed a new home.
They arrived on Sunday!!!!!!!
