Little Serene is growing leaps and bounds every day. She is shedding out to this gorgeous dark bay. Darker than her mom. She has a very fun and engaging personality and is so eye-catching with her markings. We now have Daisy out in the field with Serene and Cindy. Serene is very curious, but at the same time a little scared of this new horse. A few more days and I'm sure they will be good buds. I'm quite pleased with the movement I am seeing from Serene.

She will be branded early October and ready for her new home at the end of December.
