Weanlings For Sale
We wean at five months of age. All foals are imprinted at birth and handled daily. They are taught to lead, load, back up, and stand to have their feet handled. Foals will have a current Coggins test, be up to date on shots; including West Nile (at buyer's request and expense) 4-Way, and Tetanus. We have an annual vaccination program on our farm. We also worm every 6-8 weeks. Our purchase price also includes a basic pre-purchase exam, and health papers. International Health Certificates are not included and the buyer will have to pay for them for shipping overseas. By the time these foals are weaned, they have had their feet trimmed several times.
Keep checking back, the 2013 foals are due to start arriving end of April and into May
My posted sales prices will include the following: gelding the colts, if you choose to have the colt you purchase gelded, and USDA health certificates for Canadian sales.
In light of ABC's recent expose on the big lick show industry and TWHBEA's attempt to distance themselves from the mess but still doing business as usual, my foals will be registered Canadian in 2013. I will continue to file a stallion breeding report so future buyers can get their TWHBEA papers, if they wish. I have dropped my TWHBEA membership and until they come out and say they are not supporting big lick horses, they have lost me as a customer. I refuse to have my dues, registration fees, and membership fees support the soring and beating of horses. If you haven't seen this video, check out this link but I'm warning you, it's very disturbing:
The statement below can be found on TWHBEA's website under news. This is TWHBEA's former President, Marty Irby speaking at the April 9, 2012 USDA listening session:
"TWHBEA stands firmly against ANY reduction in weight or size of the current pads or action device. The survival of our registry relies mainly on the performance horse. As the performance horse market has declined over the past 6 years, our annual budget has decreased from $5,000,000+/- to less than $2,000,000 annually. Our breed, horse, and registry will not survive at its current level without the existence of our great performance horse."
You can read his full statement on TWHBEA's website. How can anyone continue to do business with this organization when it refuses to do what's right for the horses?? How dare TWHBEA speak for the entire membership without asking us how we view this!
Anyone purchasing one of our foals will be given our veterinarian's name and phone number and our farrier's name and number upon request. I will also supply you with names of satisfied buyers.
Mazie is my only 2012 foal who has not been spoken for yet. I think she'll meet her special person in 2013.
She's Simply Amazing - Mazie
Below: Meet NFF She's Simply Amazing. Mazie was born on May 18th, sired by Society's Duke Allen, out of Storm's Maude. She's the smallest foal in size on the farm right now but she's got big ideas!
All our horses are simply amazing, thanks to the efforts of breeders through the sixties and forward who did not abandon their bloodlines to curry to the latest show ring trends. Our Heritage Walking Horses have no connection to show horses whose ribbons are the result of abusive training practices.
Mazie and her mom on pasture less than 24 hours after birth. She loves to run! Mazie has a blaze and two hind socks. She will be for sale at weaning. Priced at $1500.00
Photo of Mazie below was taken May 25.
Below are pics of Mazie on June 1. She's growing into a gorgeous feminine looking filly. On the photo to the lower right, Mazie spots Annalee. I always get a kick out of the foals when they start discovering each other.
And now for some "discovery" pictures. The foals are testing their boundaries a bit and noticing they are not alone with their mom in the pasture, there are other little guys like them out there. It will be fun to watch them all run and play once they get brave enough to venture away from their moms more.
Jack & Annalee meet each other. Hey! You're my size!
I'm going back to my mother!
My goodness! Lancelot's face morphed in the photo to the left. Right photo - Lancelot
getting hugs - one of his favorite things.
Jack is growing into a big boy! He has an old fashioned Walking Horse head, loosey goosey swagger to his walk and he looks as smooth as glass when he moves! This will be a big moving horse - nice field trial prospect.
Left photo: Mazie looks like she's asking "who are you and what are you doing in my pasture?
Here are some fun pics of the 2011 foals: The foals are finally getting to know each other and are starting to play in the pasture together. Certain ones seem to have buddied up more than others. Many times I see Hawkeye and Tempest playing together. Sit back and enjoy some youthful fun!!
Rambler and Tempest. Rambler on the go!
Left: Aristocrat and Rambler play fighting. Right: Cats!!! Come on guys, Game on!!
These boys like to play rough! Photo on the right was after they decided to break it up and head back out to the pasture with their moms
I thought I'd share some of Duke and King's 2011 foals who are owned by others:
This cute guy is Williams Hope, out of Bullet's Elusive Angel. Will is very people friendly and has been since he was born. He resides with his dam at Tsuniah Walkers, Williams Lake, British Columbia
This is Tsuniah's Southern Star out of Rambler's Southern Belle. Star is very athletic and a well muscled colt. Star and his dam reside at Tsuniah Walkers.
Meet Pleasure's Society Queen, sired by NFF Wilson's Society King, out of Echo's Lady Bug Allen. Queen is proudly owned by Pleasure Gaits Walking Horse Farm in Hechtel, Belgium. Sandra says she has personality plus and loves people and attention.
I offer a payment plan for buyers: 10% down will hold the foal of your choice with monthly payments to be made until the foal is paid for in full. At weaning time (5 months of age), the foal should be paid in full and will be free to leave the farm once he/she has been weaned. If the buyer opts out of the sale, all payments received after thirty days will be refunded with the exception of the down payment. We also accept payments by PayPal, for your convenience.
