LP Painted Ponys - 2016
« on: May 08, 2016, 01:12:08 AM »

If you didn't catch the topic on the LB forum, I had a nice surprise arrive on Friday morning.

She's BRIGHT red & white - and with the freaky weather, along with a movie marathon that brought up some different names, she here got her name.

"GG" was born in 2010 and went to all my driving lessons with her dam starting at 19 days of age.  She has turned into a dream of a driving mare as a pair, though she does pull single to a cart as well.

"GG" had "Chylly" on Friday morning - will be registered as LP Painted Chyllydown W.  Chilly Down is also a song by David Bowie done in the movie of Labyrinth.



Gwen is at the butt & Grace is at the head of this little girl.  Neither girl is used to doing this and both were a bit unhappy with Gramma "making them" hold the pony baby... 



But then Gwen got into it on her own when I laid "Chylly" down in her lap and positioned Gwen so that she could hold the filly by herself while stroking her in long strokes and "GG" checks to make sure her new baby is ok.



Larry (my hubby) gets into it a bit, too, before he goes and collapses in bed (these 12 hour shifts/6 days a week while union is on strike are getting to him!!).



Then Yoshi and Sierra arrive from opposite directions and OMG, the boyfriend who was scared of the ponies last fall - is holding the baby!!!!!!!!!!!!  and touching the mama, too!!!!!!!!

I'm expecting KoKo to go next - also in foal to Wizard.  I'm actually going to go check her again shortly. 



These are the shots I took right before leaving for Iowa for my Aunt's funeral.  The only 3 shots.  Then I will take some more tomorrow as I haven't gotten any since I've been back (other than her sticking her head in that shot with "GG" and "Chylly" above).

Then we have Kechi - a pony that I sold in Dec 2013 and she is back as of February and she appears to be in foal to the stallion that was to have been gelded.

Kechi is a cremello that we brought back from the brink of death at 6 weeks of age and nursed thru several illnesses the first year of her life.  Got her "little highness" started in harness before selling her - she's gotten into some very bad habits while gone and haven't tried hooking her yet.  Figure that will wait until she foals and we'll go from there.  Our youngest granddaughter is thrilled to have her "unicorn pony" back - and we may have Kechi going under saddle for her as well this summer. 





Trailer work - April 2013



This was her 2nd hitch in Jan 2013.  She's still a little unsure when the cart makes a lot of noise or when a tire bumps up over objects such as a flake of hay...





This is Toro (LP Painted Toro).  We sold him in 2013 as well and he's back.  I don't yet have good pics of him...  He's gotten several serious "come to Jesus" type workouts as his manners were downright dangerous when he came back.  He still needs more work, but it will come.  Nothing like the "non-hormonal", laid back and well mannered colt that I sold.  He is moving much better these days than I remember him moving and he should both work under saddle and in harness.









and in Oct 2011 at 5 1/2 months of age -

Toro is a foal out of the 2nd and 3rd Shetlands we'd owned.  He came after I'd sold his dam in early 2001 and then purchased her back in 2008.  Magic and AJ were both 19 yrs old when Toro was foaled in 2011...

His sire is "AJ (WF Action Jackson) and his dam is "Magic" (Magic Place Resida).  They were both Skye's riding ponies until she outgrew them and moved to first an Arab mare and then a NSH mare.  Both were also used for giving riding lessons (I don't have any pics of that, unfortunately) and Madira showed Magic western (Skye had show her huntseat) at some of our local open shows.

AJ -







Skye is riding him here - September 1997.  Skye is 7-1/2 yrs old.









Madira rode him too, though this is the only photo I have of her riding him now.  This is June 2001.  YES, he was our breeding stallion while the girls were riding him from 1995 - 2002.  I leased AJ out for breeding from early 2002 thru late 2003 and by then the girls had outgrown him and he was driven on/off for several years.  Then he went to a couple of open shows - presented in Hunter pony style (2005 shot below).





He even drove as a pair a handful of times, he was much bigger than the mare he is pictured with her - but they made it work...

Magic's pics -

Between 35-40 rides here w/ Skye.  We'd picked her up over Valentine's Day Weekend down in Florida.  Boy could this little girl BUCK.  She got air time above my head!  The first few times Skye actually got on her, I held her and jerked her off if it looked like a wreck.  We all calmed down, then up again...  Later, when Sierra rode her and her little legs were high on her sides and "tickled her" - Sierra hit the ground two miles from our pasture and Magic took off.  Circled the tobacco barn where our gear was stored just outside of our leased pasture and with her nose in the air, tail over her back - dashed all the way back to Sierra (walking by then) and let her get back on...  That DID end up being the first AND last time Sierra rode her though,  ;D .  Magic is the only pony to have thrown Sierra (our pony jock w/ the velcro butt).







Yes, Magic is in foal to AJ for their first foal together (Pixie was a blk tobiano that sold as a yearling into a NH barn that did lots of kid lessons & community activities).











****************
AJ & Magic were laid to rest - together - in June 2012 at the ages of 20 years.

So, this Toro/Kechi foal has a lot of history to live up to in our family.  I'm actually looking forward to seeing what we get.

I just love all these pictures and appreciate you giving us their stories!

So Koko and Kochi are the upcoming girls, right?  And I believe you have given the 'order' for babies with lots of white this time? Your new little one is just beautiful, and can't wait to watch her grow!!!

So I seem to post one place & not the other!   :o

Here's pics of KoKo the other day. 



Also handled her and checked her udder last night.  Being a maiden, her udder seems tiny, but I did get clear, non-sticky fluid out of both teats.  Haven't unpacked the milk tester yet (have no idea what box it ended up in when we packed out), so not testing it.  Figure maybe a week or so?

OK, that's weird!  It's like there is a step missing in attaching the pics.  I couldn't attach them in the body of the post like before?  Ah well, they are on the post, so...

So no foal today and really didn't seem uncomfortable at all last night.
