It is hard to believe that once again foaling & breeding season are upon us!  It seems like the 2012s are still little but when the first of the 2013s arrives any day now, we will be reminded just how much they have grown.  Stay tuned to the Atwood Ranch Facebook page for newborns as they arrive.

FOALING SEASON COMES TO AN END

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

The 2012 foaling season has ended & we have babies galore!  The first mare this year foaled on January 30th while the last foal was born July 9th.  It’s hard to believe that the oldest are about ready to wean already!  If you’d enjoying staying abreast on the little ones, “LIKE” us on Facebook – follow along with stories of each & our foal handling adventures.

To date we have 18 foals on the ground with plenty more to come!  Each is imprinted at birth and early learning starts the morning after.  With Jake’s guidance, we have a progressive foal development task list which keeps the foals on track and progressing each week.  It’s a wonderful time of year here at the ranch and visitors are always welcomed.  Visit us on Facebook under “Atwood Ranch” (the “Atwood Ranch Naturally” page is inactive) to see photos, stories and videos of the new foals.

PEPPY COLT BORN IN NORWAY!

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Ingrid and Nicolaas Kram of Norway purchased an Atwood Ranch mare in 2008 named Katsy Broadway Dox.  They left Katsy in the states for a bit then bred her to our stallion One Smart Peppy in 2009.  We donated the breeding fee to the Parelli Scholarship Fund to support those seeking career training and certification.  Fast forward, a handsome colt was born in April 2010!  Congratulations to Ingrid, Nick and Katsy on their “Little Peppy”.

We have 21 foals on the ground to date and quite a few of them have a fan club already!  Our Development Team catches some pretty inspiring moments, along with some funny ones too, on video for you all to enjoy.  Visit often as they grow quickly and learn even faster!
