Simply beautiful! Two horses in Colorado take time to play in the snow original footage (video)

These are are original YouTube videos of Luna the Mustang and her friend Nala playing in the snow here. A clip of the videos was picked up by a TV station in California. Note the South Dakota reference in the TV station clip. Accuracy in reporting, we guess. Ha, ha. The power of horses to touch people always amazes me. At last check, the clip had garnered more than 162,000 Facebook views. Videos by Erica Monjeau and Janna Kregoski. Thanks for the happiness, girls! (More horses-in-the-snow footage below.)

Our farm is the original homestead of the Father of Ft. Collins and home of the novel Winning Bet, a clean read for ‘tweens and teens. You might also enjoy the illustrated mini Christmas romance, Fortune Cookie, also photographed here.

Straight from the horse’s mouth at our fall 2015 vet visit

Help! I'm trapped in a vice!
Help! I’m trapped in a vice!

We had a great fall vet visit in November with Dr. Allen Landes, who provided vaccinations, dental care and whatever anybody needed. Luna, a newly-adopted black Mustang mare shown in the photos below along with some of the other attending equines, handled the adventure admirably, especially considering she was with wild horses last summer. Calypso, the bay Mustang shown to Top 10 results by Cayla Stone in last summer’s Extreme Mustang Makeover, also acted like this was just part of everyday life. Dr. Landes visits twice a year to help us fulfill the horse healthcare guidelines published by the American Association of Equine Practitioners. For those who may be unfamiliar with what they are seeing, the device above, a speculum, does not hurt the horse and helps the veterinarian examine and work on teeth with a clear view.

Looking for an equine, stable-related job?

We get a lot of work-wanted inquiries here at Poudre River Stables, especially from those attending college or moving to the Fort Collins, Colorado area. As a self-care horse boarding stable, we do not generally need a lot of outside help because our clients tend to help each other. Then again, self-care clients sometimes need relief too. We thought we would share the wealth of talent inquiring with us out on our social networks. If you are qualified for an equine or stable-related job, and you are in the Fort Collins area, send us your inquiry. We will look it over and reply back to you for verification. We will not publish inquiries that do not reflect well upon us or you. For everyone’s protection, please also provide your own background check from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation as part of your inquiry. Appropriate photos for publication welcome.
