Teddy arrives for breakfast & dinner daily by our dining door.
Great news, Bella is fully recovered from her colic attack and back in the paddock - $2,800 later. You can't be worried too much (except for how you pay for it!!!) when you love your horse.
We have become very busy and I am not getting time for myself to enjoy all our animals. I am looking for ways to do this but haven't come up with anything as yet. I rode Bella today for the first time for months and she was amazing. Not too many horses you can leave that long and not expect a reaction. I guess it is all the Parelli training she has had over the years.
We will be open nearly all the holidays. Have family from the South Island here from 28th December to 10th January but will still be working most of the time - that is why bookings are essential.
Just phone (09) 292-9231 if you want to know anything I can help you with.
All the best for a wonderful festive season with your family and friends.
Tiffany produced a lovely girl foal on 25th October. I hope you will come and see her. She can be a little skite roaring around the paddock at only weeks old bucking and carrying on for our notice. It was funny because Brittany, our granddaughter, went to get all the horses in and she came back to me and said "they won't come as they are all gathered around Tiffany and her foal". I said "foal, she is not due to have her foal for another month" but there she was without any human help bright as anything. Whew, what a relief. So being Brittany who found her we had to find a name starting with 'B' and so she is called Becky.
Rebecca Tasker and I have just made up a little show for people to see in the summer months. We have Merlin, fetching squeaky toys, Casper doing the Spanish walk, Jodi jumping through hoops, Tiffany and Becky - well I don't know what yet! - Star doing his usual on a stand and Dannyboy saluting. Sally the sheep may bounce a ball back - you never know! Whatever, they are having fun and I think you will enjoy the antics.
After 4 months of me not riding Bella she has commenced again like a real angel. Took her to Waitawa Regional Park and enjoyed the stunning views without having to think about my horse playing up so I guess now that she is 8 years old I can say she is properly 'broken in" - what horrible words. She is now gentled to a stage where we are a partnership.
