MacKenzie has a run around for the camera - Now she is sold!

Got Kenzles in for a trim today and popped her in the 'arena' paddock with a couple of 'helpers' for a bit of a run around. She thought it was fun, even if the Wascally Welshie and Dinky Donk insisted on 'assisting'!

The video was made for a long time friend of mine, dressage rider Kim Schwass, who has long harboured a not so secret desire to compete a purebred Clydesdale in registered dressage. With Nick and my current health and financial issues, it has become apparent to me that I really need to de-stock and, with this in mind, I have started to think of potential homes for some of my precious breeding stock. Kim was one of the first people I contacted to ask if she might be interested in Kenzie as I think that she could be the horse to bring that dressage dream to fruition for Kim, and, to see my dear sweet baby in such a good home, would be a dream come true for me and make a very hard decision, a lot easier.

The great news is that Kim agrees and Kenzie will be headed to a brand new home in the 'land of milk and honey' in a few weeks time.

I want to take this moment to wish Kim all the very best of luck with her new charge - I am sure that they will be a force to contend with and I am very excited about what they might achieve together!

Outside Babies

Got these cute pix of Tee and Storm the other day from their owner/breeder Kay so thought I would share. They're unmistakably Hamish foals - I cannot get over how he stamps them! Storm is out of my old Silent Hunter mare, Ears - the dam of my beautiful 'Hippy', who was laid to rest in April.
