Thank you Linda, for your reply on my blog page re: DSLD. It is such a grinding thing to contend with, and hopefully, soon we will have answers to help us all move forward and keep this wonderful breed viable for the future. I love the PP, and will work for it as long as I breathe. I never lose hope that a marker will be found, and then not just the Pp, but all horses so afflicted with DSLD will have a course to chart in eradicating it. It will be a glorious day when it comes! Thanks again. Love your pics too!!!
You also have a great day and one I will post my horse on website to see....hope to met others with the same love I have for my horse....as I say we have many breeds....but Cindy has a true attachment to my heart and soul.....and I haven't rode all my life such as my husband.......
Yes, I'm in Florida all the time. Peter commutes each month for a week to 10 days. We have been traveling quite a bit for Grandkids graduations. Last week-end to Arkansas, this weekend to Missouri, and then the next to NH. Once that is done, I'll be staying put here at the ranch.
Maybe Marti and I can take a drive that way , we'll have to see how far Laveen is from us .He is a nice looking guy and like I'd mentioned before , the bloodlines are from way back . I don't think I want to breed our mare , it's a lot of work and responsibility having babies. I want to enjoy her for a while.
Chat soon ,
Maybe next time we"ll make the ride . We've been so busy around here , my work is keeping me going ! Hope all is well with you , last time we spoke you had some rough times , hang in there ! I still have that magazine I promised to send you , I'll get it done soon.
I see we are both online, but I really should be going to bed! Just wanted to say I love your horses, and next time I get to San Diego I will try to look you up. I have a cousin-in-law who lives in the northern suburbs, and my husband and I would like to take our kids down there for a trip sometime, but it's hard to coordinate.
I looked at the Saddle Creek Ranch pictures on Webshots - they have a lot of nice horses. I am torturing myself looking at pictures of Peruvians, because I am contemplating selling my place in the country where I kept my horses, so that we can buy a bigger house in town, and it feels like I am closing the door on the horse chapter of y life. But the place I have is only 6 acres, and if I ever get back into owning horses, I would want more land. So I have to trust God's timing, and at the moment we need a bigger house for our growing girls.
Are you doing any long distance work on your peruvians? I am interested in locating people who are interested in documeting their mileage. Before importing Don Miguel to the US we put 2 years of endurance style conditioning into him. Thanks David
