On Sunday, Oct. 25 we took Nordic and Kanala, our two newest boys, to the Longacre Farm and Market for the annual Farmers Showdown. It was a beautiful but breezy fall day. The event was well attended and a lot of fun. Besides tractor pulls and wheelbarrow races, two of the Philadelphia Eagles’ cheerleaders attended, along with a mascot.
• Day Two of training Channing took place on Saturday, Oct. 17. Sarah was able to halter her (for just the second time) and lead her out to the obstacle course, where she did all the obstacles (with a little help) except the high jump. We were very proud of Channing and her instructor.
• Sunday, Oct. 11, was a perfect day for our annual Parent/Child 4-H Egg and Spoon race. After getting soundly defeated by the parents last year, the kids rallied to take all top six places. Sarah was the easy winner as she blew away the field in a time of 55.15 seconds. Sisters Julia and Annabelle finished second (1:02.82) and third (1:05.23), respectively. They were followed by Jessica Joy (2:38.08), Natalie (1:12.82), and Clare (1:18.74). The closest parent was Jere with a time of 1:40.38.
Also on Sunday, we started training Channing, our new cria. It was the first time she had been in a halter so she was a bit bewildered.
About 7 a.m. Saturday, August 8, Chablis gave birth to a 17.9 pound baby girl, whom we have named Channing (after actress Stockard Channing), as is our custom of naming the cria after an actor with the same first letter as her mother.
Channing is a very healthy and active cria, who didn’t need any help from us. It is Chablis’ fourth baby, and she has proven to be a reliable and caring mom.
