So many foals...
English Yew had it's first foal crop! EYEC So Long To The Headstrong and EYEC Guiding Light are now proud papas! And their babies turned out real cute. The boys will be up for stud later this week with limited spots. However, that's enough of advertisement, everyone's here for the babes!
Atlas (EYEC So Long To The Headstrong) had two lovely foals out of our mares. His babies are tiny and bulky like him, but Atlas is a homozygous Tobiano and all his foals will be some sort of tobiano. We were lucky that our crop got two homozygous tobis with Atlas's spotty markings. Atlas is a dressage stallion, so we'll be keeping all of his dressage bred foals because Burt said so.
EYEC Oliver James
Say hello to baby Ollie! He's Silver's first foal ever and she's been a great mum. We were very cautious with her first baby, and she got a little angle for her first one. Tiny one too! Ollie is a black tobiano, and we're quite pleasantly surprised to see we got a black foal. It's a tad bit hard to tell, but under his white legs his fur is very light, so he's black. he's a KWPN Thoroughbred cross, and he's already been sold. He's definitely an eventing prospect, but I can see him going on and doing anything his new owner's heart desires. He did come out super tiny compared to his half sister, who's huge. It's rather funny since his mum is one of the biggest mares we've got. Silver's doing great, she had a little bit of trouble foaling, but she's warmed up. I hope to have more foals from Silver and Atlas, since this little lad turned out great.
Next baby is Meadowlark! He's out of EYEC Talmont, and is the spitting image of Atlas. Tally's weird face marking got passed down to Meadow as well. It just seems as though somehow Tally's awkward face marking is going to our babies in one way or another. Her last foal, Tonik, came out black but with one blue eyes. Weird huh? But It's cool to see! Meadowlark is staying with us in hopes of breeding her, but who knows. She's a playful filly and loves to run around with Tally. She's super curious and I can't wait to see her under saddle when she's older. We're very pleased to see her come out so big, since Burty and I need some big horses. We're anticipating her to become really dark once she's shed out very dark like her mum! Nonetheless, she's a unique looking filly with a lot of potential.
Crow's only had one foal from one of our mares, since we still need some more German Riding Ponies to breed Crow with. I haven't much to say about Crow. He's an awesome horse, that's the most I can say. Our cool cremello stallion had his first foal and luck was on our side and got another cremello!
EYEC White Blank Page
Ohhh baby Dove! I think I'm the most excited about this cutie. I don't know what it is about Dove but I see a certain spark in her that makes me excited to see her grow up. I think she'll be a real fun horse to work with. 'Can't ride her. I'm too tall. We'll work it out though. Slew is being driven mad by this spitfire. So are the other mares and foals. Dove runs the whole paddock. She's a cheeky filly and zooms around the ring. She loves to try and play with the other foals but they haven't quite warmed up to playing. Obviously we're keeping Dove, and she makes me excited to see the other foals by Crow!
Wilma is coming along nicely. Here is a photo of her and Ariel working in canter through some water, she was a little unsure at first about getting her legs wet but as she is such a sweet mare she just gets on with it and does what you ask.
Welcome go Equus!
Because I have some older horses that I'm not ready to retire. I age my horses differently.
I want my horses to age one EC year every 0.3 RL month, until they are 4 years old. Then from then on age one EC year every 8 RL months. (I hope that's not too confusing).
Before you can show, you need to register your horses, and if you want to register your riders (not necessary) you can find that here.
I hope you enjoy EC! There's a wonderful staff here that will answer any questions you may have, on top of many helpful members! Myself included. I am happy to help with anything I can!
