Yeager's kids are growing up

After what feels like a long wait, Yeager's first few 'kids' are finally old enough to start thinking about riding! Yeager's first foal, Aero, is pictured above on his first ride.

Another of Yeager's foals, Odin (now 2 and a half), has also been sat on a few times now and will be started in earnest this spring.

I can't wait to see these guys by the end of summer!

Fall update

Hope everyone is ready for winter! Our arena is finally done and we are loving the consistant sand/rubber footing. The 'kids' are growing up fast - Yukon (shown here) is almost 16hh already, at a year and 4 months old, and is starting to change colors again for winter.
Our barn apartment is nowhere near done, but it is continuing to progress. The drywall, windows and doors have all arrived. We're just finishing winterizing the paddocks now - 4 down, only 2 left to go!

Our most recent news is that Yeager's 2009 filly, Iya Fancypants, went to her first show and came back with High Point for her young horse division! At only 4 months old (and just weaned the week before), that is quite an accomplishment. Her owners said that she was a real superstar and couldn't have behaved better.
Then finally, the winner for our 2009 FREE BREEDING DRAWING is Amy Harrison, of PA! Congrats!!

Freya update

Our 2006 Shire/TB (AWS) filly, Freya, is now 3 years old and is doing great!
We visited her (at her new home) yesterday to see how she's been growing up - and we couldn't be happier with how she's turned out.
Congrats again, Erin, you and Freya are a perfect match! : )

Our arena gets ready for winter

At long last, we are taking the next step towards completing our arena. A final grading, compacting and base layer have now been installed.
The next step will be to spread out the footing - a sand/rubber mix. We will fence the arena next summer.
I can't wait to ride in it this winter - it will make such a difference to have an even, level surface to train on year round!

We have a superball!

Wicca has just been confirmed in foal for 2010. After seeing how nice her other 'kids' are growing up to be, we are very excited to repeat this cross to Yeager! She is due 6/14/10.

New Pics of Odin

We just free-lunged our 2 year old Yeager gelding, Odin, for the first time this year - and wow! He is really growing into a beautiful mover. Here are some pics to share from the session:

Odin has huge suspension at trot.

Look at that push from behind!

His canter also looks fantastic - lots of engagement.

Did I mention suspension? I think I'm in love...

Now I really look forward to seeing what a stunning horse he will become as he finishes growing. And I am very happy that we get to keep him - both to enjoy for ourselves, and to be able to share what an amazing cross this is. Yeager & Wicca, you did good!

A barn becoming a home

My husband, Sjon, knew early on that he would never be able to get me to come home from the barn. So, he wisely decided to build us a barn that is also a home.

The lower floor, the horse part of the barn, came first (of course) - but we are now starting on an upstairs apartment for ourselves.

The construction on the tackroom begins, below the bedroom upstairs.

From upstairs, this will be the view of the arena as seen from our living room.

The apartment walls, windows and roof are now up. There's lots more to do before we can move in, but we're feeling like things are rolling in the right direction at last!

Yeager's second arabian cross foal arrives...

Yeager's most recent 2009 foal is a beautiful bay Arabian Sporthorse filly named 'Iya'. We couldn't be more pleased with this full sibling to 'Frankie-J'. She is leggy and refined with a huge, uphill canter like her sire.

Look for more photos of Iya soon on her webpage. Can't wait to see her all grown up!
