I renamed you Sebastian,
majestic and revered, it fits you to a tee.
Yes, Raven's obsidian son you are,
elegant and powerful for all to see.
Thee of swift and graceful agility;
born Falcon, I can see why.
In Ludse's image freedom continues to soar
on wings of strength, a poetic vision floating by.

The above poem is for my new half Friesian horse I purchased. He is in boarding at Fiore Farm which is minutes from my house and he and my other horse, Oberon - an adorable Quarter Horse, keep me and the girls very busy. You can click on the link above to see Sebastian's grandfather and see his father in the photo below.

Click on the red words below the photo and you will be transported to The Horsemeister blog - the day to day operation of a Friesian breeding farm standing the Friesian stallion Raven, by Judy Sceggel.
The above poem is also linked to "Friday Flash 55". A story told in 55 words - join the fun, I know you can do it!
I also linked the above poem to dVerse "Open Link Night #18" Over 100 poems will be shared tonight. Hop over and take a look!
The above photograph is for "The Creative Exchange". I new the minute I saw these doors I had to get a silhouette of my horse in front of them. The photo below I linked to "Photo Art Friday". The only thing I did to doctor it up was change it to Sepia. I have yet to learn the fine art of textures and such (you will see some nice examples of this on the latter link).
The photo below is Sebastian relaxing a bit during his "colt starting" experience with James Cooler of Cooler Horsemanship. Sebastian will be trained with Cooler Horsemanship and he has responded remarkably already. My "Just Horses" blog will follow this and other horsey talk over the next few years.
