She is a beauty and of the same bloodlines of my geldings. She will match my horses to the point where they will be hard to tell apart. She is only a baby, just two years old. She will be a great fit on our farm. Her training begins immediately. She will learn all sorts of things and finally be trained to pull. Our geldings will help train her….and “lift the heavy end” until she catches on.

Her stall will be next to her, soon to be, teammate Duke. A divider wall separates the two teams, but they can all see each other. The roomy stalls are comfortable, but daily turnout is a must. The exercise keeps everybody healthy and who doesn’t like a good roll after work?!

These are exciting times at Riceland Meadows. This evening I got a sneak peek at the first of the documentaries that were shot here by Rural Heritage magazine. The horses looked great and the film crew and editor made me look good to boot. The show will air on RFD-TV on May 10th. (please check RFD-TV for scheduling times) I think this little lady may become a star too in the coming months, Rural Heritage would like to come back for more footage of happenings here on the farm.

Abby first day

A little muddy from her first day, but fitting in nicely. She has accepted her stall and her new place. Welcome home Abby!

She looks great Ralph!! So fun you got her as a 2 yr. old so you can train her right from the start. How lucky she is to call your farm home vs. the alternatives which we know are not as kind. I’ve marked my calendar to watch RFD TV for your show! That is so exciting! Congratulations and I can’t wait to see her in your field!
