Today I caved completely and, with the threat of snow and appalling weather I rugged the horses up to the nines, including Kenzie, Meg and Twinkle. For Kenzie it was her very first time wearing a rug but she's such a cruiser, I knew it would not be an issue. Meg and Twinkle had a brief introduction to rugs in the autumn but today were re-introduced in the paddock and, showed no signs of being at all bothered. I watched them for a wee while after they were dressed and they played around showing off their new rugs to everyone else and then settled down to the very important business of eating more grass. Of course the weather won't eventuate now but at least, if it does, I know everyone is going to be nice and dry and warm.

I live on a 25 acre property in the Wairarapa (NZ) with my husband Nick and daughter Amy. Here we surround ourselves with horses of all shapes, ages and sizes. My passion is to breed and raise sport horses for the everyday rider and the stud's catch-phrase is 'Breeding extraordinary horses for ordinary riders'. We have been running the stud for the last decade and just love it! We currently stand two stallions. TF Hamish, a Wairarapa Stationbred and Crossiebeg Brennan, a purebred Connemara. We used to stand the purebred Clydesdale stallion, Kintyre Lodge Robbie who has gone to a new home in the SI and the, now gelded, Mighty Heights son, 'TF Life O'Reilly', who is currently in work with a young rider in Wellington. Our mares are of Clydesdale, TB and Irish Sport Horse breeding and we pride ourselves on producing attractive horses & ponies with superb temperaments and sound constitutions.
