Rafferty is Maude's second foal by Hamish. He's now 5 years old and has been living in Wellington since he left us as a rising two year old. His human mum adores him so much that she has purchased his full brother/sister who is currently residing in utero. When I went to Wellington last week I stopped in to visit Rafferty and to see him under saddle for the first time. He was broken in quite late (as a R5yo) by Gavin Morison and has been under saddle a few months. His mum Claire is 30 weeks pregnant so Raff is being ridden a few times a week by Claire's friend/neighbour Jo.


  1. Another lovely Hamish baby. Go Hamish, you're a star! :o)

  2. Wow! That Hamish has outdone himself again! I am truly impressed by the horses he & Talisman Farm keep putting out. Those who are lucky enough to be able to buy one will be envied by many, including me!!
    Well done Lou, keep doing what you're doing.

  3. Its like looking at Maude in a shade of grey.
