Update and Upcoming Breeding Plans

It's been awhile since I've done an update.  Seems to happen that way quite often.  After being here for about a year and half, Naveen has gone back home to Garrett.  She was a such a sweet thing to have living here and I'm grateful to have Penny as a result.

Penny is just starting her show career, but working full time and having two kids means she's only getting out to a limited number of shows.

Navajo has earned his RN and only needs his majors for his Championship.

Flyer is occasionally coming out and working towards his Grand Championship.

While in the midst of talking about getting Naveen home, we decided where we wanted to go from here.  We love having Minnie and are so grateful to have had the chance to get her and start breeding again.  As much as we would have loved to have another litter from her, we made the decision 2 years ago to spay her after her 2nd C-Section.  In her case there was too much scar tissue and it just didn't make sense to us to try and ask another litter of her.  We decided to ask Garrett if we could lease her litter sister Ava, and he said yes.  She had been at herding camp with Marty Stewart (earned her HT while there) and we made arrangements to fly her up and she arrived a week ago.  She is just as sweet and friendly as her sister.  Minnie was so excited to see her and seemed to remember her.  Our plan is to breed her to Flyer on her next heat cycle which should be anytime now.

For those of you who aren't familar, here are pictures and pedigree of the planned litter.

 The following pictures of Flyer were taken at the 2015 Nationals
