What I did on my summer vacation.

The kids are back in school today and I'm heading out riding! Yeah! We did have a nice summer, got in a few family trips, and got some work done, but now I have time for ME!

One of the things I did over the summer was have a photo shoot for Salam, my new stallion. He is owned by Freedom Run Farms of MI, but is standing here for a few years. I asked local photographer Karen Wegenhenkel (who took the marvelous photos last year) to come out and she did. She got some lovely photos of Salam and a few of us both, although I have to say I like the ones with just the horse better. Nothing wrong with the photos, but I think he's a bit more photogenic than I am.

No foals this year, but we are expecting two next year. Jas Shearer-McMahon and I have bred two of her mares to Salam and they should both have gorgeous foals. So, sometime next summer he'll have two more foals on the ground.

I didn't make all that many rides this year, just the two this spring and I doubt I'll get to another, but I have big plans for next year!

Anyway, I felt I should really update this, as I've been pretty quiet. I'll be updating the site itself soon too - that just takes a lot more work.
