Rotorua SJ..........

was held this weekend so had the pleasure of hosting Lynda, David and Bowie. Huge congrats to David and Bowie who had their third GP start. Out of 28 horses Bowie came 7th with one rail down and seconds behind 6th place. So great weekend for all involved. Had a few drinks and dinner on Saturday night and shared a few laughs (that David is one cheeky shit)!! I don't know how Lynda copes:) Check out Bowie at Next weekend is TeTeko (Texas) so watch this space.

Took a couple of photos of the boy in the 7 year old class, wasn't really standing in the ideal spot though. One fantasicly turned out pony.

2 Years Today......

I lost my best mate, Master Flynn to colic. A day never goes my without thinking about him. He was truly one in a million. Such a great horse lost far to young. If only I could have cloned him I would be truly happy! He is buried in my paddock and pass by him everyday, so glad he was buried at home.

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.

Boxers First Tying Up Lesson......

Well was a lovely weekend, got a bit done with the girls and rode Lofty. He is just getting better and better. He is getting about 25mins a day as he was out of work when I got him so just working on getting his fitness up.

Won't post photos of the girls as I took to their manes. Little Lucy has a double mane, goes over both sides, so attacked it with the scissors:) Lucky she is just a paddock ornament.

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

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.
