She came right up to us, but the visit was cut short by a dominant, bossy mare who ran her off. Oh well. She looked great, and is going to make beautiful babies with Boo. I can't wait to see Tumbleweed's first Rosalee sibling next spring. Here are some photos Marcy McBride took of her.
I took a few of Boo, but pictures don't do him justice. I guess, like so many horses, it's the movement that makes them magical.
Here are his professional pictures to give you a better idea.
I'm a sucker for a bald face and blue eyes (like my heart horse, Cowboy). Boo has passed that on to a couple of his babies.
I was surprised at how beautiful all the mares were, too. Just lots and lots of eye candy.
One of the babies latched onto my husband, Mike. Horses really like him. It was this little guy.
Marcy's daughter, Shelby, helped give us the tour. She is the one mostly responsible for their gentling and halter training. We got to watch her do her thing, and she is exceptionally good at it. All the babies are in your pocket types--much like Shirley's babies. I can't speak highly enough of this early training! I'm so thankful Tweed got it. Here's a picture of Shelby this spring with, I think, Aries, a Boo baby. He's sold. I think they all are except one--who happened to be in Mike's pocket. LOL!
Speaking of beautiful babies, I love Tumbleweed's multi-colored mane. I had to take a picture of it as I was grooming him today. He's getting tall and lanky right now.
You can see him resting his head on Cowboy most days. The geldings are all quite handsome.
I told you how the mare herd keeps Tumbleweed in their little circle--here's a good photo as Tumbleweed watches me approach.
Oh, horses. I just love them. Can't get enough of them really. Mine...or others. It was a perfect day, and I was very happy to have seen Rosalee. She will always have a place in my heart.
