Comme Chez Soi19 is weaned and happy with paddock mates

Comme Chez Soi
September 17th, 2019

Comme Chez Soi19 has been weaned and she is doing well with all her buddies and paddock mates at Old Tavern Farm. Greg Daley shares an update on her and the mare, Comme Chez Soi below. 

Porkchop and Walter, the cat are also content. Walter takes good care of the barn and Porkchop stays with the chickens when he isn't trying to "rearrange" the landscaping. Enjoy their photos below.  

Silver Colors weaned well and enjoys a bath

Silver Colors
September 16th, 2019

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.
