more detail

1. Freebyrd, a BLM mustang pony mare, about 6, 13some hands, not really broke, but David can halter her.
2. Topaz, big old sorrel/flaxen mare, who we accidentally bought at an auction, mother of Amber and currently living with Smoke. Old scars all over her, we think that must have been caused by dogs, as she really really believes that if she's in danger, she should kick the fool out of whatever upsets her
3. Miranda May (Mandy) 1994 black bay mare. Mother of Spirea, grandmother of Belladunna, half-sister to Jewelann and Smoke
(ok, I don't have time to finish this with the detail I want, I'll come back later..)
I don't think I've ever seen all the critters bunched together, the way you have your current place arranged.
I can see why you went shopping for a bigger spread.

bigger spread

yeah, actual acreage is a real goal in life. its the main reason we have reduced to just the llama, and haven't any goats or sheep right now. not to mention cattle. right now, of course, we have to buy hay year round. kind of a scary thought the way this year has started out.
believe it or not, we're down by four horses from sales this year so far.
but the chicken population is another matter
um, need eggs?
You left off the llama and the goat (sheep?)
