The boy of the summer

The summer is slowly winding down...the days are growing shorter, leaves will soon be falling and warm, sunny days will be a memory.
"Nobody on the road
nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
the summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets,
the sun goes down alone..."-from The Boys of Summer, lyrics by Don Henley and music by Mike Campbell
At the very beginning of this beautiful summer month, we met Hermas, a new colt sired by NK Qaswarah and out of the mare, Alamirah Ezzain. Remember him? He is our boy of the summer, as we admired his HUGE nostrils.  I even went as far as calling him a future king. As the month of August comes to a close, I thought it would be very nice to see Hermas one more time and celebrate an extraordinary colt, as we make a transition from summer to autumn.

Happy Labor Day,
