Yesterday, on Mother’s Day, we spent the day touching base with family and enjoying a little horse time. My wife Connie spent a little bonding time with our 5 week old filly Maggee.

We put most of the horse herd together. Our two year old and our yearling fillies are in in a different pasture. The rest of the herd, including little Maggee, is all together with the stallion Hank. He inspected all the ladies, chased a couple around for a minute or two, but then all was quiet.

The pastures are rich and the grass is fresh. The horses are enjoying it. The sunshine is wonderful after a dreary rainy month. The pastures are a bit wet, but we needed to get the horses out. Hay is running low. Plus Amee and Maggee need the added nutrition the growing grass provides. The sunshine too is good for all.

It was a wonderful day. Many successes, including the herd dynamics all working out. By this time next year, we hope for 4 new mamas here at Riceland Meadows, as we work to preserve this critically endangered breed.

Hi. I just want to tell you how much I enjoy reading about your horses and seeing the pictures of them. The Suffolk Punches seem like a wonderful horse breed. Do you ever have open houses or events where we could meet you and your horses?
Thank you for your website.

Thank you Mark! Yes we sometimes have visitors here at the farm, but this coming October we are hosting an event at our county fairgrounds. We are expecting several Suffolk Punch horses and owners and breeders from all across the country and Canada. The dates are October 7 & 8 from 9 to 4 each day. You can see more on our Facebook page Saving Suffolks or at the website Saving Suffolks.com
Last year we had 13 Suffolk horses , this year we hope to more than double that number. They will be in harness working, a few under saddle and many to see and touch.
The location is Ashtabula county fairgrounds in Jefferson , Ohio 44047
