Scrappy was born and raised at the Rushcreek ranch in Nebraska, while Aurora was bred by and at Rushcreek, but born off it at another ranch in Nebraska after pregnant broodmares were bought in the dispersal sale. Her first 9 months were spent with a couple of Rushcreek siblings in a paddock in a Nebraska summer and winter, then 5 weeks ago she stepped off the bus to sunny, green California:
So before Rory got to shove her adorable nose in that bowl of noms--which, by the way, she is now a major convert of--I trimmed up Scrappy's hooves this morning and tried the borrowed Sensation treeless saddles on him.
Scrappy, willing but dubious, when told to "STAY!" and model the Sensation English saddle
looking pretty for his mash <3 he has shed out SO fleabitten this year!
After my Scrappy session I had a lunch and movie matinee with a friend then scooted back home to spend the evening with Rushcreek Aurora. I caught her up in all of 60 seconds this time around and she marched eagerly out the gate at my side to do some more exploring around the property. You may notice she is wearing a different halter today, she has officially outgrown the foal halter she came in. :)
Auroras hanging out
And what better way to end a lovely Sunday than with those promised Noms. From scorning mash to licking her bowl clean in 5 weeks. Clever filly <3
