Sadie had her 15 day check yesterday and she is IN FOAL to Diarado!!!

good job with the swimmers, dude

And thank goodness for that. I know this wasn’t the originally planned cross, but I’m pretty excited about it… I think whoever buys it will end up with a really interesting prospect. The Diarados are generally quite ammy friendly and nice athletic attractive horses, and they’re popping up in the higher levels of every jumping discipline. There’s a lot to like about that. Plus he’s another stallion that doesn’t have a red gene, so no chance for chestnut. Win/win.

I mean…
his babies are alright

I guess…

So, no full sibling to Presto next year, but a Diarado is a pretty damn amazing consolation prize. Fingers crossed of course that the pregnancy sticks and results in a healthy foal, yadda yadda yadda. Maybe she’ll decide to make a filly this time? She’s 2 for 2 in the colt department.

she likes to make them tall, dark, and handsome

As for the little man himself, Presto has been doing a bit better. There’s not much to report with him really, rhodococcus is a slooooooow recovery that’s more about managing the side effects of the antibiotics. There is a bit of improvement though, so we’ll take that.

For those who were asking for a second chance at shirts, I’ve relaunched the store with a few little tweaks, mainly a minor design change, more shirt options, and lots more color options. I tried to find a place with tech shirts but that just didn’t work for lots of reasons, so I’m sorry but I couldn’t accommodate that request! I did find out that It’s a Haggerty’s can embroider the logo on a custom sunshirt though… I’d be happy to send the file to anyone that’s interested in that. It makes me really happy to see so many people rallying around my little dude and wanting to support him. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again – y’all are the best. ❤

  1. yay on Sadie and glad Presto is improving, whatever we will take it. are you going to go see him this weekend? Also I would LOVE to get a custom sunshirt with the logo honestly. I think that would be amazing!! Oh the possibilities!! Boggles the mind 🙂

    Yeah if Michelle doesnt want to keep that Sadie/Diarado cross or can’t find anyone to take it off her hands, yeah i will take it (Even if it is not a Presto brother or sister)! HA


      1. okay let’s pack together if i know this group we will have 4-6 orders in like five minutes or so. I already was looking at color combos 🙂 LOL SWOON…purple and navy inset and Presto logo. YES…..wear with pride!! 🙂


  2. Congrats on Sadie’s pregnancy! Fancy foal in the making!!
    As for the shirts: yay!! I ordered the first one too big and it is really heavy cotton so no go for summer. I also prefer the new, smaller design.
    How about one of you just orders two sunshirts? With that many colour options…what’s the problem?
    Oh, maybe Bobby will take one. Kidding!!

  3. I’m not sure if anyone else is okay with waiting, but if we wait til after the 9th to place the order, I’ll gladly join the group for the sunshirts.


    1. I’m sure we can do that. I’ll get in touch with Haggerty’s and start working on organizing this. I’ll post about it again next week and try to get everyone’s email so we can figure out how many, what colors, sizes, etc.


  4. That is one bad ass black dot in the making. Will need a Presto shirt as well because he went from bad ass black dot into cutest bayness with white dots.


  5. So exciting! Fingers crossed all continues to go smoothly.
    Thanks for sharing the link to the shirts. I am using the one I got originally for a t-shirt quilt, so clearly, I need another to wear. Wish there wasn’t a reason for the relaunch, but I’m glad to hear he’s fighting the good fight.
