"Back from surgery yesterday, tumor/cyst is out, no more ovaries or fallopian tubes. Pain in my hip is easing as well, once the stitches heal (6 wks of no lifting more than 5 lb) I'll know if I need to go for hip surgery or not. Soul…"

I saw your update and remembered you introduced me to C. Mercer, with the Don Marco gelding, Arador.
I'm working my Morgan horse to begin driving, maybe this fall. I want to get lots of time with the long lines and a harness before hitching to anything. Don't want an accident.
See my photos of my first ever foal out of Fiesta D and by Pavon, both PRE Andalusians. My friend Ellin M Daum is a member too and posted pictures of her beautiful stallion (my baby's daddy).
How is this summer treating you?? we need a little less rain than June had and for the heat to go down some, but its summer Right!
I am excited about going to the World Eq Games in fall. Hope to see Fuego XII in person.
Wow!!! Yes and he is gorgeous Cindy. Thanks for your reply, and yes a gold mine for sure. I was hoping to breed my Mare to him next year!!! I did the bloodline comparisons on both his Dam and Sire's side and it would have been nice.
Also yes, people are starting to get it. Morgans with Ben-Don blood are not pure. I have one and it is my love for him a Gelding that started my research on bloodlines and Morgans. Like the Canadian horse , all you want to do is save the breed. Save those original bloodlines. Is his Sire or Dam still around???
This is not the first time I have hit a dead end. I have come across ones that come close but once I review the lines, I see it. I don't want even one cross to a Saddle or Thoroughbred.
Ohhh My Gosh Cindy!!
Don't You DARE Apologize for being straightforward, frank, sincere, and HONEST!!
Actually, You’ve NO Idea how Much I Appreciate Your “Reality Check” Your comment … those are the kinds of things “friends” tell one another.….hmmmmm…. Some Very Good food for thought in your words.
I’ll definitely be mulling them around as I decide about this filly.
If I were to get her … fortunately, I will have at least one or two other horse(s) to ride, while I wait for the filly to grow.
I was thinking of her more as an on going “project”
But your words REALLY brought something home to me … I need to revise my will, to Make Certain that “if” something happens to me … my will executor, will know Exactly what to do with regards to “placing” them.
……Thanks my friend
