Hello Fredericka,

Mary and I gave Balthasar and Odessa bathes today and took a few pictures.  Thought you would enjoy seeing Mary and how she is outgrowing Odessa (but you should see her on Balthasar ;-)

Love, Carole

Had our first Halter show today.  Elizabeth was nervous as this was her first time, however she did a beautiful job!  It was VERY VERY hot and shade was hard to find.  We arrived at 9 and our class was finally called around 2.  She entered Halter: Exhibitor 17 and Under (placed 3rd) and Open Halter (placed 5th).  Carole

Hello Fredericka,

I hope this email finds you and your family well. 

We are managing to survive this tough economy like many people.  Todd still has not found work, but this time of year is slow.  We pray January or February will bring employment. Otherwise we Thank God for the good things we have.  We truly are blessed with each other and good health!

I just wanted to send you this picture of Mary on Odessa.  They both look adorable.  Odessa is a wonderful pony!!!  She truly loves and takes care of Mary!  Balthasar and Caspian are healthy and happy.  I can't believe Balthasar will be 10 in June.   

Have a Merry Christmas Fredericka,

Love Carole W.


Big Birthday Kiss

Here are a few of my favorite pictures beginning when Odessa first arrived.  You can select any for your site to post along with Mary's letter if you wished. 



Dear Fredericka,

Hello hello hello!!!!!  This is the story of little Baroness Von Odessa.  The BEST horse in the world.  She arrived at my house Sept 2005 when I was 6.5 years old.  I was SOOO excited that I couldn't even sleep that night.  I heard my dog Heidi barking and knew she was here.  I ran out to the barn in my Pajama's and saw this cute little fuzzy horse in the stall. Little baby O. She was just 5.5 months old.  I didn't want to go back to bed and, the next day after school couldn't wait to brush her.  All the kids in my 4-H group love her and argue over who can take her to a show.  She gets lots of blue ribbons and the big champion ribbons. They are hanging up in my room next to her pictures.  She is so sweet and gentle.  People always come to pet her and take her picture.  I love that she is my horse. It is really hard to take care of horses.  I pick her stall, scrub her buckets and brush her everyday.  Work work work.  I take riding lessons now, and Mom lets me ride her Balthasar, but I want to ride Odessa!  Well, a few nights ago, mom said I could sit on her for the first time.  FINALLY!  I was so excited and a little nervous.  Odessa turned to sniff my boot and mom said she looked very proud to have her little girl on her back.  We walked around the ring a few times.  I have been sitting on her a few times now and can't wait to ride her more.  Mom said we need to wait until she is a little older first.  Mom is teaching me how to ground drive Odessa, but it is not as fun as sitting on her.  I have lots of things I want to do.  I love trail rides, but boy you should see Odessa run and jump!  I want to learn how to jump with her.   But that is still! a few months away.  I wanted you to see a picture of my very very first time on her back.  I love her so much!  Mom says Flying W Farms is the best and only place we will ever get our horses.  I can't wait until we buy horse #3 from you!

Hugs, Mary

Hi, Fredericka

Just wanted to share a picture from this past weekend.  This is the 14 year old girl, Maria, that visits with Odessa. She absolutely loves Odessa and is saving for her own FWF horse!  Hopefully to purchase in 2 years time.  She is just the sweetest girl!!! .___

First Ride Thumbs Up!

Hi Fredericka,

 Thought you'd like to see updated pictures of Odessa.  We love her very much!  She still has the sweetest personality.  I think you had said her dam, Dales Blossom was foaling in February.  If so,

hopefully she will produce another beautiful foal for you!

Hi guys,

Thought I'd share a funny comment from Mary.  We were looking at some pictures I took of her softball practice. and when she saw the attached picture, she says,  

"Look at that Suspension!, Look at that positive DAP"

LOL!  Fredericka, can you tell we watch your video's a lot!!  Don't ya love the horse terminology to describe  herself?!!  ;-)

Hi Guys, 

Having a BLAST in this snow!!!  We got 12", but the snow drifts are unbelievable.  Took a few pictures of Odessa.  Hope I attached the one of Mary  holding her halter.  Look how tall Odessa has gotten since the September pictures! 

Enjoy, Carole
