Please help us welcome Willow - the orphan foal we adopted in honor & memory of Pistol Pete. She is now 9 weeks old (we got her a week ago Sunday) and is a sweet little full QH filly (Palomino). Her dam was euthanized after breaking her leg when Willow was 5 weeks old. Willow is drinking mare's milk replacer from a pail and beginning to eat a little grain. She loves her Bermuda hay and is an "in your pocket" filly. She is well halter trained and I am working with her nearly every day to be sure she learns her manners. I will post pics as soon as I get a few minutes to take some good ones.

Willow now has a pasture mate. We bought a Belgian/QH gelding, and he is now her BFF and protector. He is 16.2 hands and his name is Hercules.

TaaaaDaaaa!! Here is Willow and Hercules!
We bought Hercules for trail riding, and I rode him for the first time today. He's great! He needs a little touching up, but so do I. All in all he is a great horse!Although I literally need a ladder to get up on him (he's at least 16.2 hands). The blue roan appaloosa in the album is a 10 year old gelding named Rebel that we bought for my husband. He needs a little riding, too, but he is a wonderful boy.

Love your mixed herd!! They all look so wonderful. If I had my way -- I would own a draft, mule, gaited, mini, etc., etc. hubby tells me not enough time to give to them all, so if I want another horse, I have to sell one (and not one of his!!!)

Willow looks great and Hercules looks like a gentle giant.

Who is the white mule?

My therapist has hooves - how about yours?? I still love that and it needs to go onto a tee-shirt

Thanks Deb. Hercules is a gentle giant, especially with Willow. I rode him for the first time yesterday, and he is a great ride. He wanted to run back to the barn a couple times, but once I had him circle a couple times he behaved. The white mule is Thelma Lou. She has beautiful blue eyes and a sweet personality to match. She is two years old. For a run down on our herd: Willow, Hercules, Rebel (a 10 year old draft/appaloosa cross as we were told, but he looks to me to be TB/Appaloosa) who is a blue roan varnish Appaloosa and as sweet as he is gorgeous. We also have a Belgian filly, Percheron mare, TB gelding, THW (Molly), TWH/TB cross (Molly's 2008 filly), 4 year old black Clydesdale gelding, yearling bay clydesdale colt, paint draft cross colt, black draft cross filly, sorrel QH filly, sorrel QH gelding, sorrel saddle horse mare, paint saddle horse gelding, the white mule and 3 donkeys. My husband is retired and is home most of the time, or we couldn't have this many.
Yes, my therapist has hooves (all of them!). My special therapist is my yearling Clydesdale colt. He and I have bonded very closely.
