A little while ago now my friend Paula in Auckland tragically lost her beloved 'one in a million' posh pony, Tarji. As many of us know, losing a best friend can have devastating effects and can render us completely useless to all around us whilst we do battle with the grieving process. Paula is no exception to this and I felt completely helpless knowing exactly what she was going through but being unable to help. I desperately wanted to do something to, in some small way, make her feel just the tiniest bit better so, I commissioned the other half to do a sketch! I contacted Paula's mum and arranged for a digital photo to be sent through and Nick went about and worked his magic off the photo provided and the end result can be seen below.
RIP beautiful 'posh pony', forever in the hearts of those whose joy it was to know you and in the minds of those who were never lucky enough to experience your beauty first hand.
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.
