You might know that a couple of years ago, Patty rescued 2 horses from Cape Breton after their owner died. Apparently, they had been almost feral as they had roamed, uncared for, on their property for several years. They were both extremely undernourished and Red Vermont, the male, had a bone extruding though his hoof. Patty nursed them back to health and set up a crowd funding campaign to pay to have Red Vermont shipped back to the farm where he was foaled in the US. Unfortunately, Red Vermont died last year, but not before he passed on his genes. Here is how the owner described it:
Well, the Red Vermont story continues- on April 9th Quietude Taffeta foaled. She delivered Orion, a colt by Red Vermont. You may recall that while at Quietude, Vermont jumped the fence and got Taffeta pregnant. I brought her here in February, now she is raising a prospect for breeding and continuing the Red Vermont legacy.
