Rushmoor Hot Shot
Well Hot Shot is finally out doing something after a long and disruptful breaking in period - no thanks to covid and a few broken bones (not caused by the above). First day at the beach yesterday and she was a star. A little cautious about those waves, and it sure was a windy, wavy day yesterday, but she coped and even got a bit wet. Lots of thanks to Sharon Klijn Equestrian for getting her this far.
I was more than pleased to be contacted by the current owner of this awesome pony as he has been one of my favourites for a long time. His new rider is 13 years old and competes him in dressage where he is doing very well. What a versatile pony he has turned out to be with success in show hunter, eventing and now dressage.
Could not resist this picture of Midas with his hairy ears. Such a dude this guy, 3 months old and already very relaxed and nosy - probably because he can't hear a damn thing that's going on through that fluff. Midas has been sold with his older half brother Murphy to a home in Waikato. This one is going to be one out of the box.
Rushmoor Gee Whizz
This big girl did it again taking out the champion second year in a row. Looking better and better and still only a six year old. Her younger sister has also been sold down that way (middle earth, South Island) so who knows, we might see them head to head one day.
I got to see this horse recently when visiting a local farm and she is looking superb. Dolly is by Casper out of an outside mare and is now 3 years old. As you can see from these photos she has turned into quite the eye candy. Hopefully she stays local so I can see more of her in the future.
