Brennan has been stealing the limelight somewhat for a while now so it is about time Hamish has a blog entry dedicated to him so, here it is.
Today I caught fatboy, gave him a quick run over with the brush and popped a running plait in his mane and, with the help of Nick, we had a photo shoot. Hamish was not altogether excited about having the camera stuck in his face and being told to smile so we jazzed things up a bit with a quick 'rear on command' reminder session. I taught Hamish this wee trick years ago and it seems that he has not forgotten. We both had a blast. Hamish is a wickedly clever stallion and always, without fail, an absolute pleasure to deal with. I count my blessings every day for having such a wonderful horse in my life.
Hamish became a father again recently too. More details on his latest foals to follow in another blog.
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.
