Show jumped mostly for many years but always enjoyed young horses. To see home bred foals realising their potential and seeing them develop their personalities and talents over the years is priceless. Studying pedigrees, assessing mares and matching them to stallions is fascinating even if the births are always nerve wracking!
We also show youngsters and compete with them
Do you have any pets?
kerry blue x parson russell terrier - a very cute boy called Milo
Hi Denise - love your new blog (blog - is that correct?) IN Praise of the noble steed.
I will keep in touch - you're right, we can be breeding geeks together. I need therapy to persuade me to bridge the mental gap to actually accept that I might have to sell some ....! I don't WANT to, that's the problem - but I need to .......
Hi Denise - followed your profile after your comment on William Micklem's blog. Will definitely contact you again - should be mucking out. Eek, have you used Abdullah - is that Abdullah (grey show jumper) am squealing with delight at your pictures as they appear. Ooh, bay foal oooooh bay stallion in paddock. Me, too, hippomaniac breeder/rider/mucker-outer - don't know how to post slide-show but will try to post more photos.
Speak/write soon - Jo x
Hey Denise, Danny seems alot better thank goodness. Got him shod yesterday morning in the hope of a thaw and then it proceeded to snow for the rest of the day :( It was quite funny cos Enda hot shod him in the stable and his feet left shoe marks on the rubber mats! I'm glad your water is back. That must be relief for you! xx
Thanks for the friend request, Denise! Are all the horses in the photos horses you've bred? You know, William Micklem blogs here and he is always talking about the Irish horses. Definitely his favorites, I think! :)
Not riding today. I have to go looking for a light fixture and chairs for my kitchen. That's ok though, since it's so cold here.
