Foalshow by Valtregard on Instagram
Our four beautiful Youngsters were shown off at #GreifentalFohlenschau on Instagram. Still waiting for the results on them, but it was a great and fun experience to show our first ever foal crop since years. They have really grown so strong.
Skip on silvaro_stud competition at Instagram
Skip also, just as our new Stallion tried to do some basic Trail for fun at the local Competition from silvaro stud.
May I introduce you to GTH Golden Paprika Pine Lane, also known as Paprika. Shes a 12 year old palomino quarter horse mare that came from Gut Greifental to us and will join our performance mares in Trail. She is a gorgeouse and fiery mare with a beautiful color (btw she also has a hidden silver gene as I was told. I didnt excpect that but its nice, haha).
Currently she gets to know the whole facility and the new life here but we start working with her soon.
And also to introduce we have our two new riding pupil here, and the big brother.
Matthew Mccoy (19) and his little Sister Kelly Mccoy (8). Matts parents lead the main cattle farm here in Cedar City, Mccoy Cattle Ranch. He loves to help out at the farm but does not learn riding here. He is only watching over his little sister Kelly. She absolutely loooves horses and always wanted to go riding. So her parents allowed her now with her 8 years to take lessons at our ranch if Matthew watches over her.
And the little red haired girl is Eliza Scott, Kellys best friend in school and everywhere else. She is also 8 years old and was excited as Kelly was allowed to go riding so she asked her mother until she allwoed her too. So Mat has to watch over the two girls whilst they take their riding lessons at OCS.
And another new face!
This here is Roscoe Ainswoth from Gut Greifental. He is now learning all about horses at our ranch to be able to take care of the western section of Gut Greifental in the future. You can follow his way of learning at my Instagram account (ottercreek.stables) to read our point of view (english) or at the blog from Gut Greifenthal (Link <- click it) for Roscoes personal view (german). It would be too much work for me to also post his story here, so I keep that for Instagram only and keep you up to date on OCS itself here.
Foals! They grow so fast! Yearlings!
And just one last photo from yesterday at the pastures. The foals are now just about to be one year old and got used to their life without their mommys. They are in a yearling-group at the moment to get to know herd life and good behavior but also get training regulary. I just cant wait to finally sit and ride on them in only a few years (2 months in rl still, aaargh, so long! xD).
Thats all for now so far. Just a quick note I want to leave at the end of this horsie spam: I am currently updating all horse coats as I now use Lukes Ultimate HD horse Mod (2k, Lite version). It kinda messed around with my shines so that the horsies looked like some glowing big butts and I just had to rearrange all their shine markings and sometimes renew their entire coat so they look like themselves again.
Thats the reason I also update all their profile pictures now one after another (and also as I now prepare the foals profiles too) at my website.
And now enough talked, Thanks for reading it all!
See you sonn! Byyyyeee! <3
