April is lined up! There is no limit to the fantastic connections and activities our horses create for us, I have been invited to go to Israel to hold a course for the PRE riders and the dates and participants are now set up, one competition is lined up with Donoso and Start, visiting clients are booked in and I have some serious selecting to do, all in for April! On top of that it seems like my ladies might join in for the April happenings because our weather turned cold again and with that the mares seem to have decided to keep their foals inside. Next week is fullmoon so I am guessing they will pop little pocorns then?! The Novedosa-Donoso should be first and name has to start with an F. Picara-Donoso (if second) will have a name starting with a G, name suggestions are welcome, both foals will be for sale, I have not enough time for more horses!!!

Picara has two offsprings, Artico VIK and Euforia VIK

Babies on their way! Nova is super-due now and I am standing by, wow it's exciting stuff every time! 

Have been trestriding and selecting PREs and presenting this exceptionally classy stud. He is mature, has excellent offspring, extremely talented, sensitive, ambitious and 10 for attutude and movements. No refined schooling but everything started and one of those horses that if you tell him how good he is he will give you his soul and get it all together in whim. I wish he was mine, so lovable and look at all that beauty,.


Today I went to pick up this gorgeous PRE born 2009 that I have sold to USA, he is now in for his gelding procedure and cuarantene. Tic says hi!

Wow now I remember why I live in Spain, got my first suntan today! (slightly crayfish as always,.) Glorious sunshine all day long, pastures are now dry and grass is growing love it. Boys are doing regular daily routine workouts and I am setting up competitions in my schedule oh yes I will get there with both Start and Donoso, aiming for april! D has not lost hardly anything after his injury, he is the best. D is now full on controlling the mares from his paddock or stable but as always 100% working and I channel his high energy into his movements to get him even more expressive, he loves this work makes him feel macho-man! Start is on on on. Today he told me we HAD to do extended trot, this is a excersice I practice least as it is very streuous and because he is overflexible. He does amazing transitions from piaffe to passage and I can ride him with an incredible sensitivity, I love this, simple finetuning no strenght needed. But we still work up a sweat both of us because concentrated work and focus makes you work out just as much, just on another more interesting level. Love this work!
Today it was hairday for Quinto and Donoso, they get schampo and conditioner and smell lovely.

Quinto is so lovable! 


Queen of Africa is sleeping inside tonight so she can rest properly because she is leaving for her Southafrica home tomorrow. Carry your tresure well across the continents, hasta siempre Loma!
So tomorow standing by for this pick up, newly sold mare for Sweden also embarking so this is also coordinated and also I am standing by for a new arrival sold to USA that will be checking in for his gelding snip-snip procedure. It might seem as all horses I sell get gelded and actually lately this has been the case, the reason being the import protocol is so much easier and less costly for a gelding than for a stallion. And of course I offer my clients my own horse-home and personal care during convalesence as I am more relaxed doing this myself than having to send the horse to some clinic or unpersonal facility. I get rewarded with so much trust from my clients and naturally I feel a great responsability for the horses I have sold in transit. The convalesence that lasts various weeks I want both the horse and the new owner to be comfortable so I do the recovery procedure myself together with my personal groom. 
All for today more tomorrow, ciao!
