Shire time

Our friends, who own/operate Axeholme Shires,
hosted a wonderfully fun Horsey Day yesterday.

We had great food (going to have to get some recipes!),
excellent company and
got to check out their gorgeous horses!

This is Dub.
He is their newest arrival.
Apparently he will be black as a mature horse.
This guy is so big already and he is only 2 1/2 months old!

Dub's dam Jodie.
She is just magnificent!

They don't looks so big from afar, but up close they are huge!

Chyann with Ellie, she liked to snuffle her and
our host Nan.

Isn't it amazing how huge her head is compared to Chyann?
She is also Ellie and Corva's dam.

Nan adjusting a fly mask for Corva,
who is just a yearling!
Behind Corva is Frank a retired Arabian.

This beauty is a retired Thoroughbred.

Chyann is excited that Nan may need some help showing her
Shires in the future.

We had a great time.

All beautiful animals.

Those look like some really big horses. Makes Chy look very small.

Compared to Caspar they are HUGE! I hope Chyann gets a chance to help show them someday! What a dream come true!
