Good monday!

Here running on low-energy levels, various check-ups at the doctor, a sunday of rest, good homemade food with lots of vitality, nutritional supplements and massage. With groom served horses I can give all three boys a nice good work out, my beautiful super students! Donoso can go from full on, low round stretch out canter to 100% collected canter ready for a form in three steps, so powerful loving the challenges, the more difficult the better for Donut! I have to really make an effort to come up with new excercises to keep him stimulated. And today Halagador did a clean flying change, oh so proud of him! His canter work is good enough for it now, his gym is built up little by little, with emphasis on little as he's nr 3 in line and the one who gets a lounging or paddock when I run out of energy. 

But Halagador made his job and got black girl pregnant not once but 3 times! Unfortunately she reabsorbed all three. As she had a perfect cycle, no infection or no other visual problem the veteriarians recommended hormonal treatment to maintain pregnancy. The reason for estrus being reabsorbed after confirmed pregnancy in most cases depend on the mare's low hormonal levels. So when nature says no it is up to us to choose to trick it, go with it. In this case her owner choose not treat her mare with hormones. So unfortunately and sadly there will be no Halagador baby next year. 

I am still looking into how to get semen from Donoso to Australia, the tests from last freezing are not valid so we need to make the procedure all over again. I am looking into costs for client and as I am not able to train him much whilst there I need to see if I can fit in freezing with competition schedule. So still working on that. 

This is Halagador covering last year and the pretty little longlegged result you can see below, not for sale!

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
