Hello all

Well, breeding season may be just beginning for Cathy in Washington, but for me, in Florida, it is now over. Magnatli has gone home to Michigan, and I miss him terribly. He is a wonderful horse - a joy to be around and work with and a marvel to watch and admire. I can't wait to hear from Anne-Marie how his trick training goes - he is a star in the making, I'm sure. Luckily for me I will have 3 little golden Magnatlis arriving next spring - 1 in February and 2 in March. It will be interesting to see what colors I get - the mares are 1 bay, 1 buckskin, and 1 palomino. I suppose I could possibly get a perlino or a cremello, which I would love to have, but I wonder how it would handle the Florida weather?

Fat Albert (the pig) also misses Magnatli badly and suffered a near disaster because of it. He was rooting up and down the fence line where Magnatli used to be - well, Albert has tusks (I guess that's what you call them) - and I kept hearing this strange, muffled sort of screaming - looked all over the place, and finally saw Albert thrashing around by the fence. Poor boy had gotten his tusk caught in the fence wire (non-climb wire) and he couldn't get loose. Had to get the big wire cutters to get him out. He was none the worse for wear, but I have noticed that he doesn't root close to the fence line any more!

Hope everyone is enjoying lovely springtime weather and having fun with their horses.
