8 weeks to go!

8 weeks to go before we welcome Raven's 2009 foal by Zippos Goldn Mover( APHA Stallion,

Oh man! I feel sorry for Raven. If this what she looks like just 8 weeks away from her due date, I can't imagine how big she'll be then?!

And a nice profile/confirmation shot of Big Momma!

Max pictured here at 7 mos. old, perparing for Weanling Halter Stallions class at the 2006 CVPHC Fall Futurity show in Lexington, Va.
He placed 6th out of 12. Not too bad for a Pleasure bred horse.

And here is Max now!
Picture taken on his 3rd Birthday, March 8th, 2009.

Nice conformation shot!

And here he is moving out.

After having the winter off, due to too many outside commitments, He is back in training and we hope to be ready for the 2009 CVPHC Futurity show this Oct. in the Jr. Horse classes. WP, HUS, and Halter. We have some work ahead of us but with time and lots hours in the saddle I didn't see why he wouldn't be a force to reckon with in the show pen really soon. Look for us at some local shows to get some miles and experience before Oct.!
