New Arrivals

On April 26th, the Shire population at First Draught Farm in Georgia doubled. It was a tough trek across the States during all the tornados and rain -- which was the last we have seen of the rain in Georgia.

One of our favorite prospects is a youngster by the name of Fitzy that we simply could not leave behind. Her momma is one huge mare with plenty of drive, stomp and feather, sporting an enormous foot to boot. With patience, good groceries and a little time, I can see now that she is going to be a huge favorite of the farm.

We're going to monitor her development here so that the folks who see her every day can really see the difference a little change in lifestyle can make. See if you see a difference, other than all the dead winter hair coming off her. . . .

  1. Amazing what a month of attention will do for a youngster!
    A few years ago I was tempted to buy a young spotted draft - he looked equally gangly and 'adolescent' - I often wonder how he turned out!

  2. Wow, doesn't look like the same horse! Great job:)
