Hello ORCSA members,

Here is a little background information to introduce me to everyone. I purchased Hawks Prairie Penny's Icena (Penny) in February of 2013. She lives in Homerville, at Swishin' Tails Farm, my sister and brother-in-law's farm. Jim has three Belgians and Amy has two Shires. Amy bought her two Shire mares - May and Mattie- in September of 2012. She lost May the day after our mom passed away. Two weeks later Emily Cullison Ricud po^ed 2 draft horse ad on Facebook, and being very impulsive. I bought Penny.

She has been busy getting acclimated to her forever home, trying to make friends with the Belgians, and bonding with Manie. Mattie was bred before the auction, and Swishin' Tails Black Legacy (Myrlie) was born on June 25. 2013. Penny spends a lot of time playing nanny to Myrlie as the Belgians don't pay much attention to her (and Penny may be 15 but she sure doesn't act it).

Amy and I are looking forward to getting the round pen set up and working with our girls this coming year.
