The grant money ran out, and through a series of events the horses ended up at our ranch - 33 of them. From this group there were 2 aborted foals, 1 stillborn colt, 1 filly (aka Hope) died after 1 week, 2 more fillies that are healthy, and Carson.

Stormy left…

Stormy got adopted out and today he went to his new home.  Me & Brian are sad.  We always ran and played and reared and bucked together.  Brian took Stormy up on the hillside last night for the last time but I stayed in with Grandma & Grandpa cuz I don’t like the rain.  Me & Brian stayed in the barn all day together and when the trailer came  back I went to see if Stormy was there, but it was empty.  I still have Brian to nap on though.  Mom says both of us are her boys and we’ll never go anywhere
