Movies of Foals 2009

I will be the first to admit, my movies are really amateurish, but here are some of the Foals 2009. These were all taken Dec 28th. The foals are dirty from the mud that set after 3.5 inches of rain and then froze with below 22 degree weather. Each listing is a hyperlink to a YouTube video.

Foals 2009 Part 3

I tried to identify each foal in the video.
Slate is the second black/white pinto in this video. He is a little larger that Picasso and is for sale as well. Slate will be a 2 year old as of 2010 and has been shown last year. He is in Top Ten Multi-Color this year, and was one of two minis in Produce of Dam (placed 2nd Top Ten) and one of three minis in Get of Sire (placed 1st in Top Ten).

Miss Peach Meets Mr. Picasso

Picasso is one of my stallions. He currently shares a pen with two other breeding stallions (Rusty and Sid), three 2-year old stallions (Slate, Lincoln and Baldrige) and a "monster" sized miniature gelding (Stetson --can you say at least 42 inches--yikes!!).

Anyway, Miss Peach came for the day and decided she wanted to ride minis. She runs out into the pen with all the boys flapping her mittens held by strings connected to her coat. Needless to say it was quite a surprise for the boys and most of them headed for the the other side of the field.

Mr. Picasso, who loves attention, came up to be petted, and Miss Peach was put on aboard. Since I did not have a halter with me, I put my hand under his chin and we walked around the field until it was way too cold to stay out any longer. Miss Peach had decided I should bring Mr. Picasso up to her home in the big city and let her keep him.

Sorry Miss Peach, Mr. Picasso is headed to Hal Bryant's to become a Chariot Horse!!. Perhaps, Hal will let me drive him sometime. Mr. Picasso leaves in February for his new home.

Want to Rent a Chariot?

I found this site: Phil's Animal Rentals . They are located in California. They rent CHARIOTS!!
I wonder if they include the horses...and to be sure they are big, full sized horses not minis.
Anyway, they do rental other things... horses, cattle, birds, livestock ...I am beginning to think they might be close to Hollywood and the movie lots.
Anyway if you want to see photos of Conestoga wagons, depot wagons, drays, grocery wagons, gypsy wagons, jail wagons, ox drawn wagons, and whole lot more...check out their website.
I'm thinking they must be the back lot for a lot of westerns!!

New Chariot Racing Site

I have discovered a new Chariot Racing link...check it out:
On the page: Chariot Racing, there are links to various chariot racing results for past races (but more important you get the idea of where the races will be this coming 2010), pictures from some chariot races and a video.
I don't know if it was my computer, but the video was a little jumpy.
Under the Chariot Racing news link there is a second link with Information about the 2009- 2010 season. I have pasted this information below:
November 20 2009
Sorry I am late with the first message. It is that time of year chariot racing is here. Yes!!!

It’s time to get those horses in shape and get your clubs paper work in shape.

Club to do list
• Current copy of your clubs by-laws 2009-2010 version.
• Your official qualifying races dates 2009-2010.
• Name, address, phone number or email of identifier for race results.
• Horse papers for the new horses running in your clubs.
• Send me invitational race dates you would like me put on the website
• We need more club pitchers on the website send me some
Make sure your club by-laws do not disagree with the world by-laws, police your on clubs.
Note: ask for permission not for forgiveness

So I suggest at your first club meeting go through your by laws to ensure they are correct and approved by your club.

If you have questions ask your Vice President. If they can not answer it give me a call Ryan: 801-645-4002.
3602 South 3850 West, West haven Utah 84401

The weekly results forms are still on the website.
I assume it is accurate, if someone follows up and lets me know more, I will post that information too.

There is a second site:
This site has photos from chariot racing events.
