New mares at the barn

Mom brought down two of her mares to board at my barn. The new girls are Cedars KenyaCatchMe (Botswana x Cedars Farah Moniet) and RSA Sahra Nazeem (BB Akeem x Ilehnisa Azeem). Kenya is Kasane’s half sister by the same sire. Kenya is also Rajiyyah’s sister with the same dam. Sahra has some similar blodlines to all Kenya, Rajiyyah, and Kasane. You might say she is their second or third cousin on the dam and sire sides.

Both of these girls are very sweet and so trusting. Kenya is the spitten image of Kasane, bright bay with a paint brush fleck of a white star between her eyes. Sahra is a dark chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail. (She has the nickname of Goldilocks at the barn.)

It’s an honor to have both of these girls at my barn for the time being. Mom gave me permission to work with the girls a little and maybe get them started under saddle. It will be intriguing to see what Kenya is like after working with Kasane and Rajiyyah. What will their sister be like? I’ve worked a little with Sahra at Mom’s before. She is incredibly smart and learns fast.

Yikes. Four horses to work with. Two of them to start under saddle and two of them to continue their riding education (and my own). Lots of fun but where do I find the time?
