Well it ain't just horses that likes mulberries!

We used to rent a pasture up the road that had mulberries beside it and it got a lot of visits from our family when the season was right!

They make some pretty nice jam or mulberry pies . . .

Haymaker, Cotton lookin pretty good. I had a mare that would eat the peaches off the ground and when there wasnt any on the ground she would go to the trunk of the tree and bump it real hard with her hip and make more fall. She'd spit the seed out when done eating the peach.

Yeah he aint as lanky, getting a little muscle now, he's coming along still a little high strung but he is about 4 now, Im hoping he makes half the horse of my last grey,
I sure dont want to break another young horse, getting too old and that ground is getting harder.
good luck

He's good, I quit cowboy racing with him, little devil out ran every thing around here anyway.
And I gave him to a young lady, only stipulation was she had to graduate from vet school before she could take him, she loves that little bay and she is determined, did i mention she is only eleven :D so ole poke aint going anywhere for awhile.
good luck
