Leila and Jessie

Leila (R) and her half sister Jessie (L), are getting along beautifully! Leila is now weaned from Dolly, and together she and Jessie share the "maternity paddock" and a box stall full time. Aside from her docked tail, Jessie is nearly identical to Leila, with the same shape star on her forehead. Although Leila's dam, Dolly, is considered to have classic farm-horse conformation, Leila does have more delicate legs than Jessie at this point. Jessie, on the other hand, has a very refined face. We are proud of them both. Terry, in particular, is proud to have the progeny of one of the world's most famous Percheron sires, Windermere's King Kong.
