MOOSE CREEK RANCH
We have some nice older mares who aren't ready to retire and like to raise a baby so we continue to have 2 or 3 babies per year. Of course these old mares have been tried and true producers. It has been our policy to keep the babies until they are a bit older but, once again, because we ourselves are growing older we have decided to sell the babies after weaning. We are trying to make things a bit easier so we can continue having a couple of babies each year a bit longer. Some of these mares will retire soon and we will no longer breed them. They will live out their retirement here at the ranch.
Maggie and Pricilla are back from the breeding farm. It is good to have the 2 fillies back so we can get started on getting them halter trained. Rio just left for the breeding farm today June 21. We will miss that cute little black and white colt of hers. Dave called him Pi. I started calling him Magpie because he was so black and white and Dave changed it to Pi. Pi is a charmer.
Gardening and family functions have been taking up lots of our time. Nifty was playing too hard on the wet, slippery ground and has a wee bit of puffiness on one fetlock and although he isn't really lame, I think it is a bit tender. So he is getting a few days off.
We took photos of Rio and Pi before they left. Hopefully some will work for registration purposes and we took a couple of videos to put on his page on this website. I will get them up soon.
On this website, we hope to include a history of the horses we have raised and owned here on Moose Creek. If you own or have owned any MCR horses or if you know of someone who does, please let us know. We would love to hear their story and see their photos. If you have photos or stories of any of these horses including any in their pedigrees, I would love to receive them to put on the site.
