A break even day

Rachelle and Flyer

DKH Black Sage and her new colt....*C-C Handsome Knight

It was a break even day on Tuesday, one horse left the farm, and another one arrived. Tuesday morning early, Sage foaled and presented us with a tall, long legged, curly coated, bay colt...handsome boy!!! and as we were enjoying our new arrival, we heard from the young lady who was buying Flyer was ready to meet us at our scheduled meeting spot. We had made tenative plans to meet close to the first of May, but she emailed and said "how about tomorrow?", we tidied things up, made sure the new handsome foal was in good health and good hands, and loaded up Flyer and headed out. Missoula is a 5 hour drive for us, we took it slow and had an enjoyable evening driving. Flyer did well, he ate and drank plenty and seemed quite relaxed the whole way. We tucked Flyer in, and settled into our Motel room. Flyer was perky and ready to enjoy another day of travel in the morning...We had our meeting....and Flyer met his new owner. I have to say that he has hit the jackpot! Rachelle is a lovely young lady, and I saw an immeadiate bond between her and her new guy. Flyer will live on a very large cattle ranch, with plenty of room to roam. Rachelle has the skills to start him off right in his riding career, and she even mentioned he might become a tad bit spoiled ;-)

Back home on Wednesday evening we had a chance to admire our new colt...he is moving around well, but those long legs don't quite go where they are sent.....but he is a love, friendly and curioius....This is the fourth of our five 2009 foals due...3 fillies, 1 colt....and the next one is not due until nearly the 4th of July, time to get a really good nights sleep!
