We have now weaned our 2 older foals. Check out the movement that Chablis de Luxe (as we now call our Cheval de Luxe foal) displayed during the process of separating the mares and foals in the second collage in his For Sale Listing. It will be a sad day for us when we dispatch him on the horse transport to Victoria (planned for May 2012) but a good day for his excited purchaser.

There are also some updated photos of Mylo and Memento in their respective sections in the For Sale section. Mylo's full sister Mansfield Park Attraction is doing well in the showring with her new owner Lise Hunt.

1. Buckskin Colt foal by GRP Cheval de Luxe (imp) out of Buena Vista Fyona :born 25/10/11

This is a stunning foal out of a 12.3 hand Welsh B mare by a 14.2 1/4 hand GRP stallion so nearly guaranteed that there are no overheight dressage pony issues in this youngster. He's pretty, moves well and has a sweet temperament.

For Sale at weaning

Our 3rd and final foal for the season arrived 30/12/11 -a very cute and active filly foal that is keeping her 20 year old mother on her toes.We called her Memento as this is the final foal we will have out of this grand old mare. I took this photo below but it wasn't until I previewed it on the computer I saw the 2 year old full brother of the foal (Macca) in the backgroung checking her out.

 

January 2011 we had a foal and a yearling assessed as part of the ACE/ASPR Assessment Tour .

7 week old Don't Be Late (AI foal by FS Don't Worry out of Buena Vista Keely ) scored 78.25% overall to gain Preliminary 1st Premium status. She scored 79.5% for conformation and 77% for movement.

See our For Sale Section for the listing of Don't Be Late

Even though being disadvantaged being a yearling we were also very happy that Sonnenschein ( AI filly by FS Champion de Luxe out of Princess) gained a creditable overall score of 77.5% for Preliminary First Premium status. She scored 78.5% for conformation and 76.5% for movement.

The photo below is Sonneschein as a 2 year old.

Only people who have German Riding Ponies in their paddocks realise how lovely the temperaments are and what a pleasure they are to own. Photos don't do these youngsters justice- you are invited to visit them and experience their charm first hand.
