On Saturday, the Needham family got a new member...
Everyone, say hello to Harleys Ruby (aka "Ruby"), a six-year-old grey Arabian mare! Ruby is a very special Arabian--she's a "Crabbet" Arabian. Crabbets are renown for their calm demeanor, sound feet, friendly temperament, and brave intelligence. The Crabbet strain is the closest to the original Bedouin horses of Saudi Arabia.
Athena and Hamilton have NOT met Ruby--she's boarded nearby. They are very aware of her, however, if the way they sniff my paddock shoes is any indication.
