In today’s podcast episode I am talking about my recent experiences as a horse breeder. We have always had some foals here and there, breeding our own safari horses. But never more than two or maximum three in the same year. This year we got five, so there is plenty of work. Night watches, midwife duties and kindergarten have been my daily life this summer. Now finally all foals are there and I am getting them used to being handled, haltered and groomed. Life is definitely going to be busy for the next couple of months! Join me today as I talk about birthing, the handling of young foals and the responsibilities of a horse breeder!

Horse Nomads – Book 5 of the Equestrian Adventuresses Book Series
Collected and published by Krystal Kelly
Finally, the 5th book of the EQA book series is about to be launched with five super cool stories featuring women from all around the world! Whether it is about riding horses in Lesotho or India or opening a yard on a Greek Island where horse riding is all male-dominated, all stories are packed with adventures and challenges. It is the perfect way to endure the -hopefully- last few months of lockdown and Covid-19 Travel Restriction and it will transport you to the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, the ruggedness of the Kingdom in the Sky Lesotho, or let you enjoy the world looking through the lyre-shaped ears of the Indian Marwari horses.
All books of the EQA book series are available as e-book, paperback and soon all will be available as audiobooks as well.
