Taken by a lovely lady who came and rode with her mom today...after our ride the mares ran and reared...
People ask us all the time..
The answer is no.
We follow Dr. Benetts advice....and wait for the growth plates in the WHOLE horse to close...
Please read her article here:
We have a name!!!
This may sound silly...but naming can be difficult!
We like to get to know the foal a bit before we name...and have to find names and debate...
Well, we finally came to an agreement..
Edeelen Yady it means "made of magic".
It is very fitting for him, since he was conceived by AI, and the semen had 5% mobility!!!
Beauty and the Beach...
Today we took Pan Tau, Pasabi and Kegas to the beach to be photographed by Jean.
It was a lot of fun, and the last day of our sunny weather.
Here are some of the pictures I took...

New home for Penta
Yes...I am behind on news....
April 15th Penta left for his new home.
His new owner rode him with us the day before.
It has been a life long dream of her to own an Akhal-Teke...
So pictures were a must...to let it sink in it really did happen!
New Group on Face Book
There is a new group on Face Book created by Lisa Bellehage, originally from the US but moved to Denmark, she decided to have people post their results with links to websites.
Here are some of our results, but the USEA wasn't that organised 14 years ago..not all of our horses and placings are on it throughout the years.
The FB page is here:
And Sweet Water Farm's Akhal-Teke results with the United States Eventing Association are here:
Amrita Ibold, perfectly Teke crazy in every way.
