I spent most of the day with Epona yesterday to get to know her and earn her trust. She is such a Doll! This all started about a week ago. I was contacted by her previous owner "E" who was looking for a good home for her. We emailed back and forth several times so I could get this filly's story. "E" bought the mare last year not knowing she was in foal. When she went to pick up the mare, she saw she was out with a gorgeous big black Andalusian but didn't notice he was a stallion... The seller did not say anything so she didn't think anything of it. A few months later it became apparent that her new mare was indeed in foal! What a surprise! Then another surprise came soon after her new mare foaled... "E" found out SHE was pregnant! She already had a toddler so had her hands full! She began looking for a new home for the filly.

We would like to announce the arrival of our newest family member... A yearling filly! She is half Andalusian and half Paint. She has a wonderful calm personality and loves people! She whinnies every time sees me and calls after me when I start walking back to the house. We have named her Epona, but her nickname seems to be Precious. HAHAHA We went to go pick her up yesterday... more on THAT trip tomorrow! Meanwhile enjoy the pictures!
