Hi Cheryl, so we have a connection, that is great. this is my first time joining any group, or sharing photos of my "private life". How is it that you know Holly, and Xanto? What a small world. I am very excited to have met Holly and Xanto through Susie Solomon, and I am so looking forward to meeting Xanto in person. I feel as though I know him already. He is captivating. He in now in VA at JC andalusians with Jenni who owns Saphiro, his sire. I hope I can make his fans happy, I have big shoes to wear apparently. perhaps I should just dress him up and carry him around in a fancy purse!! Glad to see you are also part of science of motion....known Jean Luc for nearly 15 years, ridden with him on and off for that period. but he is definitely the most influential trainer in my life. Amazing and brilliant man.
Wonderful that Chyna found a new home that already appreciates NFPs. I know that Encore and Adanac have been doing well at that farm.
Cow Soirting/Team Penning can be a blast. I first did it with my Appy/Arab mare (my avatar) when I first got her. She showed the cowboys up the very first time. Yep, one discipline certainly enhances the other which is why I play around so much in many disciplines.
I didn't know that you had switched to Andalusians, how exciting.
I'd love to come down for another course but am swamped even in winter seasons - then I decided to host a PBO show which is absorbing any of the "free" time I managed to squeak out for myself.
Come tell us about your New Forest on the Pony Breeders of Ontario group found here on Barnmice. I know I enjoyed meeting them when I came down to a couple of courses a few years ago - still put that knowledge to great use.
