    I took these quickly tonight, so nothing fancy. Left my camera in the barn so grabbed a few more after final tuck-in. :wink: It's so cozy out there, I never want to come in.

    This is a normal hair day for Tucker, now 6.5 months old.

    Blurry because Mazie was bugging me... I think there's a horse under there. :lol:

    Rosie the color of fall and Chloe the color of winter.

    Gypsy, in the middle, is mama to Whisper on the left (age 4), Mazie on the right (age 6 months), and Rosie (2 years) above.

    Tucker and Mazie--they see me, they come. I think they love me. :wink:
    Both went into the van tonight. Tucker walked right up and in the first time. Mazie still makes me coax her and makes it on the 4th try. :roll:

    Everybody but Tucker, who was busy biting my boots. :roll:

    Oh how I adore this little lady.

    And her full sister....
    (the clipped area was done by the vet to get a vein when Rosie needed sedation to remove wolf teeth--but they were so small the vet couldn't grab them.)

    Tucked in. My horses have luxury suites.

    I walk this path many times a day.

    Chloe's stall.
    We've been on some walks to work on that baby belly. :wink:

    When I get to photos again--winter jammies will be even thicker!
    Thanks for looking. :D

    Great Pictures :D :D :D I can't wait to see them in "full" jammies :D :D :D
    Tucker and Mazies forelocks remind me of Rod Stewart's hair back in the 80's?

    How wonderful. I can see why you are enthralled with your babies - they look like such lovely creatures.

    Very cute and you better keep an eye on Rosie once Terry gets into the states, she might rent a trailer and come sneaking up there in the middle of the night for Rosie., and take her on some adventure like they do with the goose.

    Tucker is just a little cutie. They look so soft and cuddly in their winter jammies. Just want to go give them a big squeeze.

    Karla---I just love it when their jammies come in! They look so cozy and warm. I want to know what wolf teeth are too.

    Wolf teeth are small teeth that come in in some horses--not all. They don't need to be removed unless the horse is going to wear a bit...which I was planning on doing with Rosie... just to ground drive--but I'll wait until the vet can get them out. :wink:

    Those hoofers are too cute for words. Just wanna cuddle and snuggle them all.

    We just found out that old Merle is a Paso with papers. He is a little camera shy at the moment because he has a very bad hair cut. (the horse equivalent of a bowl cut). It is taking forever to grow out.

    He sure has perked up since he came to live with us. When Pat is in the field, Merle follows him like a big puppy. When I come home from work, he comes running to the fence and he whinnies his hello. What a change from the downtrodden and depressed hangdog earlier in the summer.

    they're surely going to need whatever hair they get. it already looks chilly and overcast where you are. i know that upstate new york weather gets ferocious. do they get blankets/coats later on? do they still go out every day?

    butterfly--they don't need blankets with the coats they grow. Blankets goof up the hair growth---inhibiting thick growth. I have blankets, but they're only on hand if someone is ill and shivering.

    They'll go out most days. The only time they stay in are in winds over 40 mph, snow storms, heavy downpours, lightning, ice and if it's incredibly muddy. I'd say they spend the day in stalls about 5-7 days a year. There are run-in sheds in every pasture, so it that will protect them, they'd rather be out. They are out at 5:45 AM Mon-Fri and I tuck them in about 7:30 now... but earlier as it gets darker. Tonight they went in stalls at 5:00 because it rained today and it's in the 40s, so I wanted them to get warmed up and get some hay in their bellies--the best way to get them warm. The digestion process generates heat. :wink:

    They are all so beautiful, but that Mazie is just special. I can tell they are all very much loved. You have a big heart, Karla.

    I looked so forward to your updates and pictures. I have 3 full size horses, but have always had a special place in my heart for the little ones and have always wanted some.

    Karla, your babies jammies are too cute! I can see that you've taught Tucker how to spike his hair without gel! LOL

    Wow, Mad, a paso!? They are wonderful big horses. You've lucked out!! Good for you for giving a needy baby a good loving home!!
