TF MacKenzie, then and now

Kenzie is Meg's little sister and was foaled in 2007. In 2008 we made the very difficult decision to sell Kenzie (this was before we lost Debi and Silas) and offered her to friend and dressage rider, Kim Schwass. Kenzie has a wonderful home with Kim and finding her this home made the decision a whole lot easier for us to bare. Kim has kept in touch with us and we have been able to hear about all of her adventures. Kenzie had her very first competition this weekend just been where she entered tests 1.2 and 1.3 (unaffiliated). Kenzie had 9 days dressage training prior to the event and we think she equipped herself wonderfully, helped in no small part by Kim's sensitive riding.

A reminder of Kenzie as a baby: 

And Kenzie and Kim riding 1.3:

Well done ladies - Awesome effort! We are super proud of you both and very excited to see you progress!

Oops, have been a slack blogger ...

I will work on the blog this week and try play catch up. Been a bit busy and distracted and I am afraid I have simply ignored my blogging commitments. I shall work to rectify that this week tho. Here's another blog for you to follow if you fancy. Wee TF Rory O'Moore has a blog all of his own now. 

And, here's a photo for now - TF Life O'Reilly has come home for some off season time out (that said, I suspect I might just have to have a wee ride or two on him while he is here). Have missed my gorgeous boy but he's in the most fantastic and capable hands with Kim. Had a txt from her about 10 mins after they had left after dropping him off ... 'Aw, I miss him alreadi'. Bless.
