Happy Birthday Boy!

Happy Birthday Boy!

It was 13 years ago today, that Renegade Scout was born in the wee hours of the morning. Here's his very pregnant Mama, Beighley, an Arab Appaloosa with my six year old daughter astride.Unfortunately, we missed seeing his birth. When we went out to check on Beighley around 4:30 in the morning, he was already up and dry. I saw a falling star on my way to the barn so I knew he'd be special.

This is Sparkler, Scout's Daddy. He was named Sparkler because he was born on the 4th of July. Just look at all his color!Don't ask me what they were thinking when they bred those two! When I bought Beighley, she was already pregnant. What a mixed up mess Scout is! However, I love my one-of-a-kind horse! And I think he finally grew into his ears.
Happy Birthday Scout!

Ha ha, fooled ya! You thought this was going to be about Annie's foal, didn't ya?

Well, hopefully, the next post I make is going to be about a brand new little purebred Arabian foal with only a few white markings.

Annie must be getting close, right?

Happy Birthday Scout! He sure was a beautiful foal. His parents are very colorful and sweet looking too. Hope Annie has the little one soon.

I trained a little black welsh pony born on the 4th of july. His name is Firecracker Jack or Jack for short though we call him Jakker.

Yep, you got me! I told my husband when I opened it up "Annie had her baby!"..wrong! But lots of hugs and kisses to my love, Scout. I love that horse! Give him a big 'ol hug from Berte!
And Annie will have her little boy in the wee hours of the morning around 1:30am.
Happy Birthday, Scout!

We know a horse born on Mar 17 named Clover. Cute, huh?

He's just beautiful! I think those parents of his made one handsome boy.

I had no idea that you bred and raised him yourself. No wonder he is so special. :)
