Mahru: the last attempt to do some "official" photo

Days are shorter and shorter. Especially after this idiotic "change of time" last weekend. As usually in the Autumn there is a lot of fog. So, today Dalia did the last attempt to do some "official" photo of our Mahru - before we will send the "zayavkas" to Riazan...

In fact, the main reason why we didn't sent them yet is that I can't decide if Mahru has a lantern (or at least a star) on her forehead - or not? What do YOU think about that?

Obe's fate

as we did vaccination to all herd this afternoon, Obe's fate fulfilled: she was caught up for the third time in her short life and forced to obey:

In fact we do not always vaccinate our horses and rarely do that to the whole herd. This time we did it mostly because there is an epidemic of horse cold in a village some 20 km from our place. We decided to be better safe than sorry: although normally we don't have any "horse" contacts with such places (as we have such contacts with nobody in general...) it is too close to ignore.

First attempt to do zootechnical photo

Having collected all tests and documents we have but to do good photos and fill up the "zayavkas" for our fillies. For the first time I've tried to catch them while they are free. It is true that our Obe after a shock she suffered when we have collected her blood is much more civilized now - but I didn't want to force her too much this time.

One or two pics could be useful. Dalia will continue tomorrow. If we won't succeed, we will do that in a orthodox way next weekend. And, for the time being, you may see a choice of few pics:


Mahru: what is your opinion - she has a lantern on her head (which is normally invisible due to her bright coat...) - or it is purely accidental effect of a seasonal change of fur..?

at least Obe's head is easy to describe...

Obe's hind legs - with socks

Mahru's mother, Margire

aunt Melesugun: sleepy and angry at the same time...

At last! We may go back to the pasture...

An Insult

In my opinion, as a breeder, a person who dared to show such a painted horse at European Akhal-teke Championship a month ago, has insulted everybody to whom the breed is dear. What is it..? Is it Akhal-teke..?

For me it's a cow. It could even be a good horse - but it CAN'T be an Akhal-teke! There is NO painted AT horses. It is aesthetic and logical impossibility.

Alexandr Stiepanovich was right 8 years ago when he said me, that everything may be sold to Germany... Every shit I mean!
