Shutterbug: Happy Horse Day
The day finally arrived. Our beautiful mare and handsome colt have been delivered. Star (named for Lonestar because of the unique shape of Texas in her markings) is a beautiful 5 year old mare that came to us from a good friend who breeds and trains wonderful horses. Star is so well behaved that she will allow you to hunt off her back and is steady on trail rides (even near busy highways). Skully is her handsome colt who was born a few weeks ago right after a late snowstorm here in Texas. Skully (his nickname for obvious reasons) will get a new regal name for his registration. He has to be regal as he is a direct descendant of one of the top horses at the famous King Ranch here in the lone star state. We're in love with them both. What a way to welcome Spring!
