His name is Zechariah

It's official! Leonard decided we are definitely naming our newest male cria HGA Faleen's Zechariah (but we are calling him Zack). He is named Zechariah after John the Baptist's father.

I failed to mention in the last post that Zack's dam (shown here in the picture) is Faleen, and his sire is Fleecy Dale Captain Courageous.

Thanks to everyone for the replies and suggestions for the name. We will keep them in mind if we have another little boy. We have one more maiden to have her cria this fall. Honey is due in October, and although we are hoping for a girl (a happy, healthy cria will be just fine too).

Thank you all and God Bless!

Busy times on the farm

Well, Joey came along this past Friday, and then today . . . we have another little cria to add to the HGA family.
This morning (Wednesday) Faleen had a male cria too. So all of our original girls (Amber, Serena, and Faleen) have had boys this year.
Well, we are at a loss for another boy name, and Leonard wanted a turn at naming a cria . . . so we are waiting on a name for this cute little guy.
There is only one rule -- it has to be related to Christianity and/or The Bible. Any suggestions?

Meet Joey!

We had a new addition last Friday, August 29th on the farm. Here are a couple of photos of Dark Knight's Jehoshaphat (as in Jumpin' Jehoshaphat we had another boy!) LOL We are calling him Joey for short, but we think he will be a terrific little male for the show ring. His sire is Dark Knight, and his dam is Amber.
The first photo was right after he was born, hence the wet, curly look to him, and the other picture shows you his true color after he has dried off a bit in the sunshine. It was also the day after his birth. He is weighing right around 21 pounds now (fairly good sized for only a few days old), and he and Nevaeh are getting along well. She is just now his size, so she seems to be doing well for a little preemie. I hope to have more pictures of the two of them to show you soon. Thanks for stopping by.
