Confession aka Sonic was born to Annie on Thursday the 4th December. Beautiful little filly with a white star sperm marking on her head. Annie was actually carrying twins, one came out mummified thou so we just have the super Sonic. Obviously when Annie started milking 3 months ago this was the start of the aborting process of the lesser twin. Mum and bubs doing well over at Lindas, so glad she was there as I really would have missed the foaling as she showed no signs of doing it at 8.30pm that night.

So we have had a few differences in the last few weeks, him wanting to do one thing and me wanting him to do another. So for the first time ever, donned the leather gloves and a looong lead to keep a hold of him and after several disagreements he has started to see my way of things and the last couple of nights I have seen an improvement. Yay, always good to get headway.
Boxer is booked to have his nuts out on Monday, hopefully it stays fine this time.

Well was a big weekend, after much deliberation, I decided that Lofty just wasn't the horse for me. I have learned alot in the short time I had him but was finding that all his buttons was a bit too much for me, I am not the DQ I thought I was:)
I also have been thinking for a while that dressage is not just what I want to do and Lofty is not much of a hacker and he does not jump, at all! and does not like showing with all the horses up his butt. I need an allrounder that I can take out hacking on the farm and have some fun with!!!
So Lofty went to his new home on Saturday, Debra Cowen (Hamilton) has taken over the reins of the big boy and I wish them all the best in the future. Deb has ridden Open Medium and when riding him had him humming, she knows all the buttons :) I couldn't have hoped for a better home. (She does need a bigger float now thou).

The day I brought Flynn 9 Sep 05, think I felt a tad sorry for him. He looked alot worse than the photos show. He turned out to be such a great horse. Amazing what a bit of feed and loving can do:)
Putaruru A&P show 26 Feb 06, 5 months later. Champion in hand and well placed in Saddle Hunter Classes. The judge made the comment that he had huge potential and looked forward to seeing us the following year, we never made it.
Flynn at Rotorua A&P Jan 06, 4 months later, our first ever A&P show.
Day I felt sorry for the boy and brought him home, he tried his heart out even thou he was in bad condition. Photo doesn't show it but he had a huge rub where the saddle was rubbing on his wither along with lice all over.

Annie is getting bigger by the day, she will come into the foaling paddock soon so she can pick her spot. Can't wait!! She is due December. Conbrio has his first foal on the ground and he is stunning, black with white kind of star and 2 socks and is a real character by the sounds of things. Conbrio is standing publicly this year, check him out http://www.legacysporthorses.co.nz/.
Boxers first time in the yard with tying up. Such a good boy, he loooves to be brushed. No issues at all!! Currently standing at 13.3hh at the wither and 14hh behind. He is rising 10 months so should hopefully get somewhere around 16.2hh.
Coal finding a way to eat, what lonnnggg legs, ohh so cute. Conbrios first on the ground.
