Goldie has a New Home

Goldie was a 1995 red dun foal out of Deck of Stars by a Page Boy First mare.

Goldie was one of my first foals born at our place.  She actually was born during the afternoon, as the kids were getting off the school bus.  They didn't actually see her born, but they saw here within minutes of being born.

Over the last 10 years, we had downsized our mares, and only had 2 or 3 mares left. In the past, we had bred 5-7 mares. With the economy changing, we were only breeding every 2-3 years. Something had to change. The end of almost 20 years of breeding has come. We sold her last weekend at a sale. She went to a breeder who actually lives only about 10 miles north of us. We will get to see her next year when she has her next baby!

Goldie is a good mother. She is an easy breeder, and kind to her babies.  This is weaning day last year, and she was listening for her foal.

Goldie just walks the outdoor arena.

Last year's foal, Fawn, is listening for her mother.

She has her buddy, Dove, to keep her company.

Goldie had nice babies.  Some were bay and some were bucksin dun, just like Fawn.

I'm glad she is with someone who will appreciate her as a broodmare.  She will have some more great babies!
