Well, the countdown is on! It's the time when our mares are starting to show that they are carrying next year's crop of foals. They are enjoying a few months of peaceful time, eating more, napping and looking beautiful while I work on a list of foal names and breeding plans. Avery should be first … Continue reading Baby bumps
It is a snowy winter evening, and I was digging through some photos and came across this one of Cocarina. Her expression says so much about her. A classy mare, her feminine features and soft eye gives you a glimpse of her intelligence. She is alert yet calm and composed. A seasoned competitor, even when … Continue reading Cocarina
Lots to look forward to this coming year, we will be expecting 4 foals! Early May, Cocarina and Abbey might be fighting for the foaling stall. They were bred 2-days apart, and although horses have a pretty wide window for foaling - it'll be a surprise on who's first. June will see Britta, then Avaia … Continue reading Jumping into 2022
It's been a busy year and I haven't taken time to share some updates. We had a few new additions to the farm this past year, and more planned for 2022. Abbey Road and Cocarina were both accepted into the Hanoverian Jumper Breeder Program - signifying they are elite mares suitable for breeding top-level jumpers. … Continue reading FALL slow-down & catch-up
Poor Abbey, she's looking very pregnant at present. She had a foal as a 4-yr old in Germany, and has been in sport since then so she has an athletic build. She is carrying "high & wide" and this photo does not do her size justice. The belly is WIDE, but she hasn't started to … Continue reading Abbey is “on-deck”
Our newest arrival has totally stolen our hearts. On Saturday, July 11 we welcomed Cocarina's newest addition "Glasgow's Ruby". She's a fiesty filly that exudes athleticism and demonstrates a phenomenal canter as she leaps and frolics. Full of sass, and the apple of her mother's eye - this one is special and she clearly knows … Continue reading What a gem!
It's a New Year, and I am looking forward to what's ahead. We have 3 really fantastic foals expected, and plans for this year's breeding season are well underway. I have 3 youngsters from my program available, and I would like to sell 1-2 this year. My darling Fabriana is at 235 days gestation with … Continue reading 2020 Aspirations & Outlook
Our darling Daisy arrived in the early morning hours on June 16th; Father's Day. Even though she was "early" (318 days); we had a vigorous filly that exuded class right from the start. Dark bay with delicate fine features, and 4 little lacey white socks - she won our hearts immediately with her friendly easy-going … Continue reading Charmed by Daisy
Foals: nothing brings the farm to life like a new foal! Below, 2016 colt Super Sonic is still unfolding his long legs. Play, sleep, eat, repeat! Sonic is maturing into a charming and handsome 3-yr old, and he's found his perfect person. I love watching their journey, I can see a great-beginning. They have a … Continue reading Foals on the farm…
It's a cold, wet rainy morning and I am looking forward to green grass. Cocarina is now @240 days gestation, so she's excited that she get to start on broodmare rations and more "eats" and I'm excited that I can see her Diamo Blue baby jumping around in her big tummy. Coco is shedding out … Continue reading Getting ready for Baby D!
