Tinner’s Storm is a Star

We’ve got some exciting news at the farm! Whether you have been here once or many times we thank you for choosing us as your “go-to” farm when you need a horse fix. You’ve all fed mints to Tinner’s Storm, our resident grandson of Secretariat. We’ve considered him our rock star for the last 15 years and now he has been chosen to be included in the Secretariat’s Living Legends calendar.             Patricia McQueen, a professional photographer, has been a Secretariat fan for many years. She chose to share this passion by producing a calendar that highlights not only Secretariat but also his offspring. Sons and daughters have been her focus but now with only two sons and daughters she has started adding grandchildren. As some of you that like to photograph horses know, they don’t always cooperate. Patricia had gotten some nice shots of Tinner but wanted to try for a few more so I was enlisted to help position him. As you might remember the way to his heart is through mints, the only problem with that was I couldn’t run fast enough while feeding him mints for the shot she wanted. So I got the feed gator and yes he would follow me anywhere. And not only him but his best friend Darby’s Hope. At $25, this calendar would be a great gift for any horse lover and the proceeds help many horses that need a place to live out their lives. To order yours, go to www.secretariatslegacy.com. And they will mail them out. But if you’re local, I will have them for sale at the...

I will not dwell on the negative but instead concentrate on the positive. We have guests once again returning to the B&B, return guests have come back and to use their words “Rosecrest Farm is a place they know they can walk around and almost feel normal again”.  Some are staying with us for the first time. It seems many people have been suffering from “COVID-19 seclusion” and are in need of a change of scenery. And guess what…they found it at Rosecrest Farm. The morning starts with a cup of our special bourbon blend coffee that they take to the front porch and watch the beautiful shades of sunrise. Then, after breakfast they are just in time to see the weanlings being turned out of the barn and explode into the pasture, you’d think they heard the call to post and are off like a flash. Once that show is over, there are still plenty of mints for retirees and a few pregnant mamas. Pistol Packin in foal to Sky Mesa Pistol Packin Rose is really fun to watch these days…she’s in foal for the first time and recently has started looking at her belly and wondering what is going on. I could go on and on about our girls but I won’t bore you.  It’s been a beautiful fall with the...
