UPDATE: Well, the people I was buying from got pretty attached to that little cremello baby, sooo, they offered me a trade. Now I am the proud owner of an absolutely AMAZING 2 year old chestnut stud. He's a doll. I just got him halter broke, and now we're working on all the fun ground stuffs xD I have named him RREC Crimson Majesty, but we just call him Maj or Mr. Stud (He doesn't act like a stud hardly at all, he just carries himself very proudly and he knows hes a sexy beast
They also threw into the deal a beautiful, albeit very thin, rescue mare and her foal. Momma is a dark bay and she's beautiful. Haven't gentled her yet, I'm just letting her settle in, put some weight on, and take care of her baby. She's extremely skinny
Poor momma. But she's slowly coming along and putting weight on. Her name is RREC Belle of the Spring Rain (AKA Rain) because I got them home at like 10 PM in the pouring rain and she was having a blast playing in it xD
And finally, the one you all probably want to hear about. RREC Joke's On You aka Jynx. He's a doll. My lord he is just precious. He's a chestnut, super friendly. He'll be 2 months old in 2 days
I've got him halter broke now, he lowers his head, picks up his feet, stands tied for short periods, leads... Oh he's just wonderful. Next we're going to teach him to load in the trailer and stand to be bathed. By the time he's weaned he'll already be completely ground broke at the rate he's going. He's so smart! And willing!
As of right now, I've decided not to geld Jynx or Maj, though that could change. I'm going to see how Maj acts once he's a full stud (his testies haven't dropped yet, but they're starting to) and go from there. If he stays as well mannered and respectful as he is right now, I'm going to keep him as a stud for my future breeding plans because I absolutely love his color and presence and if he does as well as I think he will when I start competing on him, then he'll make a great stud. He may be the one to get RREC into the public eye
As for Jynx, I'm waiting to decide his fate until my fiancé makes up her mind. As of right now, the plan is to keep him as her future partner. His being gelded will depend on how Maj does as a stallion and whether or not I geld him. And of course, in the future, the way he acts as a stud if I do geld Maj. The plan is to hopefully keep one of them as a breeding prospect.
Momma Rain will most likely be gentled and started, then sold. I just haven't bonded with her the way I hoped, and in fact I really only got her because of Jynx and the fact that she was so skinny. In truth, she looks so much like a mare that belonged to someone very close to me, that I no longer talk to, that looking at her tends to just hurt me and it's not fair to her for me to keep her when she can go on to a home with someone who will love her and adore her like she deserves. She's a wonderful mare, really. I wish I had more of a connection to her.
AAAAAnyways though, that's what I've been up to. I don't have wifi for my laptop, otherwise I would be uploading art like I should be. Hopefully I'll get wifi soon.(Like, before I lose my Kiwistang, because I've drawn her soooo much!! Grrrr..)
I miss you all so much! If you want to get ahold of me, please e-mail me!
Much love from myself, my wife, and all of my lovely fur-babies.
Oh, also, if anyone wants a puppy and lives in NM, let me know? I have one left. He's a massive cuddler. Walmart made us leave before he found a home
