This is one of the saddest posts I've ever written, but Cavan Thunder, after foaling a beautiful healthy colt, became paralyzed in her hind end. She was able to stand up the last 2 days and nurse her new colt but now she can't stand anymore and we have to put her down 😭😭...if anyone knows of a mare that has recently lost their own foal, pls let me know. I would really like to find a mare that will accept, protect and nurse my new colt. I will pay to board the mare until the foal is weaned and she would have excellent care. Please, please share and contact me if you know a mare that wants a baby!

EDIT 3/14: a wonderful foster mare has been found!! Ty!! ❤️❤️

Can finally share! My aunt is my #1 in finding ways to challenge my artistic flair. 😍🎨 she commissioned me with this piece- just a generic white horse on black... the rest was up to me really. We both like to go off what sparks our imaginations first and let it play out! ✨

truer words haven't been spoken

⚠️Warning : venting post coming up⚠️

Can we stop a minute and debate the elephant in the room, when it comes to selling and buying horses : the Infamous x-rays.

As soon as I hear the word x-ray now, I want to lick the cap of a tube of Gastroguard and pop a Xanax because I know that whether I’m the one buying a horse in Europe or selling one in the US, doom will be impending as soon as we are going to deal with the x-rays.

Back in the days, when digital x-rays didn’t exist, you would go pick up the best jumping horse you could afford, show the horse and sell it. If he was not 3 legged lame during the clinical exam, you could count on money coming to your bank account.

But in 2019, horse buying/selling is a whole different ball game. Forget about buying the best horse, you need to buy the horse with the best x-rays. This is now the #1 criteria of choice ... then if the horse is half decent, bingo. But you are actually better off buying an average horse with textbook x-rays than buying the next Olympic winner with a blemish. And I found this new reality kind of sad ...

First step is to get the European vet to approve the x-rays (which means that 75% of the horses will actually fail that first screen...) when you get 40+ views, something will most likely turn up. From there you have 3 options; you pass on the horse, you buy the horse and do plastic surgery on the joint to remove a chip that will most likely never cause any lameness issues but will upset the buyer, or you are lucky enough to go to the next stage.

Step 2 you get your US vet to look at the x-rays... Most likely, the US vet will find “new” stuff that the Euro vet didn’t pick up. To the point where you wonder if the vets in Europe even get a course in x-ray reading at vet school, because the standards here and over there are SOOOO different.

So now x-rays have been seen and Okayed by 2 professionals... but this was actually the easy part. The hard part is to have the client’s vet on board. Every buyer wants their vet to tell them the horse will never be lame, and every vet wants to cover their butt and will not commit to say that the horse will never be lame. And that is the sticky part!

So now we have xrays which can be sent and reviewed by 6 or 7 vets and every single one of them will come up with a different interpretation. To the point where I believe that the Rorschach inkblot test is actually less subjective than a set of horse x-rays.

We have clients who spends thousands and thousands of dollars on failed vettings, and become more sour about the process than a girl shopping for a swimsuit after Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays....

Call me lucky, but out of all the vet bills I have paid over the years (and when I even think about the total, I figure I could easily afford a penthouse in NYC), I have dealt with broken legs, abscesses, colics, EPM, soft tissue injuries, catastrophic wounds, aneurism, pneumonia, and all sorts of things ... but I must be the luckiest girl on the planet because I have never had issues with any findings on xrays gone bad.

I cringe when I see people jumping every day in bad footing, I have to bite my tongue when I see the shoeing job on a lot of horses but I, for one will not shy away from acceptable but less than perfect xrays on my personal horses. For my sale horses, I have to go through the nit-pick process and still it’s not a reliable process.

So 2 years ago I bought a young horse with crap xrays, and because of the current mentality, I bought him for a song. Two years later I have people offering me 6 figures for him, because in the ring he is actually much better than all the horses with clean xrays.

So people... instead of worrying about what might happen in 2 years, 4 years or 10 years from now, take a chance and go buy the horse that makes your heart pitter patter, not the one that your vet thinks might be sound 12 years from now ...
Owning a horse is a day by day commitment, so Carpe Diem and stop obsessing about the x-rays.

The end...

My super pony Calypso (Premium GRP by Beaujolais x sPs Chianti) now has a new mom, Rhonda Joyce-Pullis. A more perfect match would be hard to find. While it was a bit more difficult for me to let this one go, as I have a special bond with her, I’ll still be involved in her life!! I’m beyond ecstatic to have Calypso partner with Rhonda, and excited for their future. Congratulations, and thank you so much ❤️❤️

Tenacious Acres - Cleopatra

We did a little video of Cleo today.

I was very proud of her. If you’re not familiar with youngsters, they get bonded with their pasture mates quickly. This was Cleo’s first time away from them, first time leaving her barn and venturing up to my top barn. She was brave and respectful. The canter improved as she settled a bit, and she will have an amazing canter. You’ll see pieces of that. And well that trot ❤️

For whatever reason, Cleopatra (Beaujolais x sPs Chianti) wasn’t photographed much. Kind of like the 3rd child 🤣 although Cleo would be more like the 12th 😳

But here is this lovely girl as a weanling, she is a two year old now. I need to get some updated photos.

Cleo will be oversized, approximately 15-15.1 hands and comes from a VERY long and proven line. Temperament is top notch, with athleticism to excel in any discipline. Cleo’s full siblings are doing all of the above. She is offered for sale, please contact Natalie 508-516-5233 for further information. She’ll be ready to start in the spring.

HI Natalie, tell me what Beaujolais adds to the mare.. Being a pony, does he add bulk.. are foals compact , When he is bred to a horse mare or even smaller WB mare, does his size prevail?
