Chief's Mistaken Jamaican

This coming 4 yr. old filly is out of  Tenn. Walker, Jamaica Mistake, & Spotted Saddle Horse, Chief's Mighty Man D.  Her registered name is:  Chief's Mistaken Jamaican.  This picture was snapped at two weeks of training & she is proving to be as smooth & easy riding as her parents.

Under saddle!

This is PJ's Coco Kiss after her second week under saddle.  She doesn't even have a bit in her mouth yet.  She displays the typical mountain horse disposition & basically the trainer was able to just get on & ride!  I love mountain horses!!!

Jamaica's legacy

Jamaica Mistake, the first Tennessee Walking horse I raised, has a new home in Oklahoma, but some of her offspring still reside here.  The first filly will be 5; her full sister, pictured below, will be 4 this year.  Both are giantesses ... much taller than either their dam or sire...and both are bound for the trainer's.

Last week's snow storm made all the animals look like they had dandruff, including this 3 yr. old Spotted Saddle Horse filly.  The horses seemed to enjoy playing in the snow (especially the youngsters: weanling Caspian & newborn ASB), but the cows just sort of 'hunkered down' & endured it.  I kept big bales of hay rolled out on the ground to give the livestock something dry to bed down on - as well as eat,  & they all seemed appreciative.

Little Bull...

This is the 'Little' Bull -- the replacement bull for the Big Bull when Big Bull can no longer fulfill his duties to the herd.  Up until now the Little Bull has led a life of isolation, save for being pastured with the horses.  But just this week, LB was turned in with his very own herd of 5 cows.  Two of the cows have already calved (courtesy of BB) & 3 are ladies in waiting.  But LB is now at home in his herd & he will assume his breeding duties as soon as the cows are ready.  For now, LB is just enjoying being back with his own species.  (Big Bull is currently with the rest of the cows at another location.)
