Silver Colors weaned well and enjoys a bath

Silver Colors19 is doing fantastic! He was weaned last week and although he had a couple of rough days he has gotten used to being in a stall by himself. He will stay here until sometime in October, then he and the other weanlings will be moved to the yearling side of the farm.

Silver Colors, the mare, is also doing fine. She was moved in with a new herd across the farm. She unfortunately did not get in foal this year, but hopefully when next breeding season comes around, she will. 

Here is a video of little silver enjoying a bath on one of our hot summer Kentucky days. We are so proud of how well he and the other babies are progressing.


Silver Colors19 friendly and social

Silver Colors19 is doing well and particularly happy to be turned out with the rest of the herd. His tendon has healed nicely so he's been turned out with everyone for a couple of weeks now, and is loving it! He’s made some new friends, and has acclimated to being with more than one other mare and foal.

Silver Colors19 loves to play

Silver Colors19 is playful as can be. He is still on day time turnout, and has to stay by himself to help with healing. He is out of his bandage, and loves to play with whatever in his paddock...trees, cats, people, his mom... anything is fair game. 

He is losing his baby fur and is starting to get his sleek summer coat. The farm should hear from the doctor in the next few days to see if his tendon is ok to be turned out with his regular paddock mates.  

Silver Colors19 leg update

Gainesway Farm provided an update on Silver Colors19. His ankle is doing really well, and he is out of the bandage. They are keeping a lineament brushed on his pasturn joint just to help promote the healing process. The farm staff hopes he will be back with the rest of the herd sometime next week. We will share photo updates soon. 

Silver Colors19 update

June 18th, 2019

Gainesway Farm has shared that Silver Colors and colt are no longer in the paddock where the outside camera is placed. The colt had some slight swelling in his lower leg, so as a precaution, the farm manager decided to keep him on daytime turnout in a smaller paddock while he heals and gets better. Currently, Silver Colors19 and his mom are staying up in the evening and being turned out a couple of hours in the morning and in the afternoon. Hopefully, in a few weeks he will return to his new herd. 

With his new location, there will be limited to no live streaming video footage. All cameras will be turned off at the end of June but we will provide video and photo updates on his status as Gainesway Farm is able to send them.
