The Horses- Nadia, Annie and Scout
Nadia- Nari Asbah, 25 years old, Egyptian Arabian mare, sweet as pie and worth her weight in gold. I've had her 11 years now. I love to go night riding on her.
Annie- Fantastyk Gal, 15 years old, Polish Arabian mare. I've been working on getting her bred since October 2007, when I saw Kakhem Sahib at the National Arabian Horse Show. He took Reserve Champion working cow horse for the third time. Annie has tremendous issues with trailer loading and tying- traumatic events haunt her past. Recently, however, I did get her loaded, with the help of a horse trainer, and now I am trying to beat the clock and get her bred artificially. Unfortunately, she is a maiden mare and I am facing hurdle after hurdle. I've had her 11 years.
Scout- 12 year old gelding born at the ranch. He was an "extra" when I bought his mother. She was a 1/2 Arabian, 1/2 Appaloosa that was bred to a red and white Paint named Sparkler (he was born on the 4th of July). Scout came out very colorful- red roan with a beautiful Appaloosa blanket, pinto spots, blaze face, blue eye, three white stockings and a sock. His coat lightens to a strawberry roan in the summer. He is quite a character, reminds me of Hidalgo.
The Dogs- Gunnar, Daisy and Buddha
Gunnar- German Shorthair Pointer neutered male, 9 years old, liver and white, ticked and patched, indoors at night, outside by day.
Daisy- German Shorthair Pointer spayed female, 9 years old, white and liver, patched, indoors by night and outside by day.
Buddha- Little Buddha of Suburbia, Japanese Chin, 4 years old, long haired black and white, 4-1/2 lbs, ball of loving mischief, lives indoors but loves to run around outside; he likes to sneak to the neighbors house through the fields out back.
The Cats- Simba and Terra (brother and sister, about 13 years old.
Terra- gray shorthaired spayed female inside cat. She loves to sit with me.
Simba- looked like the Lion King when he was a kitten, part siamese, shorthaired, likes to yowl.
