Tan All Around
My filly, "Ribbon" is virtually invisible this time of year. The plains grasses are now various shades of tan and she is too. In the not so distant future, she'll be wearing a saddle since she's a coming 3 yr old. I took this photo when she was a foal. She looks much the same now...only much taller! It takes so long to get from this stage to the horse becoming your trusty steed, but its very rewarding to raise your own mount. It is the road less traveled and the one I prefer. Raising horses is very much like gardening...you plant the seeds and then you wait...and wait. I've scaled back my breeding program to suit my age, and little Miss "Ribbon" is the 'one' I kept for myself. Come springtime, God willing, she will be under my saddle and I'll have a new palomino pardner.
