Our daughter Alexis has from the point she could first express herself as an infant expressed an overwhelming love for horses. She began western riding lessons at 4 yrs and was loping and showing horses at age 5 in competition with adults.
Our venture into horse stewardship began unexpectedly several years back when Jeannine and I attended a charity auction event and they led in a beautiful paint mare and her 7 day old colt. Now known respectively as Lakota and Comet. This was our first introduction to "Friends of Horses" a south Denver horse rescue foundation. We later adopted another paint mare Sierra and her colt Scout as well as a dapple grey gelding Silver bringing us to a total of five adopted horses all previously headed to the slaughter house.
Sierra decided to foal 3 weeks ago in the middle of a late night blizzard and Lakota after laboring for several days foaled this last Saturday on a beautiful starry night.
