Wow it's hot now! Just below 40 degree,. Working out in the evenings, luckily young boys and girls are in the shade of the big fresno trees. Boys are now in summer-school and has started their education. They now have their own private fields and you can already see how their personalities are starting to develop in a different way becoming their own. Tico give me that look-at-me-look and wants attention. He got a rash same type Donoso got last year from a plant not as bad but enough to need treatment on that pink nose. First round I had help from vet as he did not even let me look at it. Next day I decided to take the time necessary to convince him, it took me some hours of patience but this is good training and just what he needed. So next day after roundpen workout I showered him and he accepted me treating him straight away. Good work for that little new stallion mind! Third day nose was healed so that was fast, great. Tino is also doing basic roundpen work and handling, he has a different type of stallion character, he is very playful, fun and cute! 

Café now on his way, here embarking on his long journey to USA, wishing all the best for him and to his new owners in Florida!


And here is Kerstin Euforia's new mum, Fia will be in the hands of the best possible person that we had the pleasure to meet last week!

Kerstin with daddy-D.

Kerstin told me buying Fia was the most crazy thing she had ever done, I know exactly what she is talking about and,. she seemed very happy.

So last night we said goodbye under the stars, a totally calm Euforia walked out through the maindoor, took a bite of the ramp-mat and then bravely stepped up, not a step backwards, what a unique piece of horse she is, just what I always dreamt of breeding. When something like that goes out into the world from your hands it's a great satisfaction, mission completed, now I will take it in and feel happy about it.

So catch Kerstin, I pass you the the happiness!!

Hej vad det går, as we say in swedish when we are tuned in and turned on, all day working full on non stop! New horses are selected for specific clients and clients are booked in for viewing visits. Had to hire a gardener and cleaning lady as there is just no time to do it.

Dilaila is dating Quinto this week and Donoso is not happy because his new bookings are frozen USA and EU which means no fun. He is full on inspired by his girls unfortunately (for him) his super swimmers are too effective so now we focus on work. Quinto is finally starting to look/feel like an athlete when he is moving, doing well! 'Coffee' our in transit boy has learned how to be a civilized guy outdoors and has advanced to a full size paddock Start has a glowing coat and in the most perfect shape ever, almost stressful I feel I have to compete, but when??!! 

And Euforia VIK is sold. Very greatful she has found a new owner that appreciates her outstanding quality and proud of my princess going out into the world representing Vikinga-family! But I will miss my 'Fia' !!

Wow killing us softly sweet baby Ella, but she is now stable and has her own brand new grasspaddock in the field and yesterday she learned about electricity. She fell to the floor everytime she got to the fence but now she can get up by herself and I try hard not to run to her rescue so she can learn. Yesterday I hired another groom so I can get more sleep and other things done when my family back-up is leaving for Sweden. Fiero is now 1 month and a super beauty, incredible movements, will be new generation Donoso-stud. I want more like him so now I have repeated the combination of Novedosa & Donoso again. I enjoy every day just looking at my horses growing and seeing them develop. I had plan to sell this years foals but Gacela is obviously not for sale, Fiero possibly as I have no same age companion for him. My 1 year old girls are like a decoration on the green flowery field. Both are very tall, totally correct in conformations and extremities. My horses are handbred and they get the individual care and this is not the same as a horse bred and thrown out on field and treated like livestock for 3 years, or bred in small unnatural corrals. Mine go on the grass fields and are kept inside when the weather is bad on golden strawbeds and they get the best quality food, vitamins and minerals that are essential for their development. And most importantly they are treated with individual care and human interaction and are able to develop their personality. I like to raise horses in a personal way, they need to be horses but they also need to know how to communicate, interact with humans and develop their personalities. My parents raised a filly on bottle as her mum died when she was 3 weeks. That mare did Grand Prix dressage and 140 showjumping. She got great dressage offspring, some exported to USA. She was bred well and was given the oportunity to develop naturally and with the personal care she was able to develop her ability to cooperate with people, which are the bases also for dressage. We need horses with a developed personality if we want winners, I believe. And when we care about our horses they give it back to us in one way or the other.

1 year old girls Euforia and Chula

I have testridden a new black beauty PRE stallion for clients and tomorrow we do vetting for USA, a stunning black PRE I have selected for dressage. Recently I have worked intensively with specific requests from clients without the client coming to view the horse. 
There is now a jet black Donoso-mare for sale that I will be happy to forward information on if anyone wants a mare for dressage or breeding. 

D is now a grandsire in Finland, congratulations Tiina and Donita VIK to little beautiful Nelilyn Armoniosa!!

Hellooooo still summer here sun and high temps very pleasant, at the moment busy selecting breeding stock for a pioneer PRE farm in South Africa! This will be the first PREs arriving to this part of the world and the good news are that our new PRE breeder is serious about breeding horses for dressage. It's a big effort with importation to SA, not at all a straightforward procedure, I will keep you posted on their evolving breeding program.
Black PRE broodmare selected and sold to South Africa   

Arena has now has irrigation system and some new sand and we are training full on. Coco is now looking like a proper dressage guy with an extended topline and able to go from relax to healthy tension, he is busy relearning how to do the flying changes using his back. Donoso was going to compete this weekend but his pilot has to work so we have to pass this competition and wait for the next one. Start is outdoors night and day, only comes in for breakfast and dinner and is very happy with that routine.
My babies are growing up fast, little Euforia is now just over 4 months old and almost same size as her 2 month older sister with a 170cm dad. Tico is quickly approaching the size and volume of Donoso with 1,5 years, where will he end up,.? Tino is just beautiful and moves fast!

Here a selected PRE small sized 3 year old PRE with good movements for sport, big overtrack in walk and good trot and canter, super sweet and easy personality, correct training. He is not listed on web but if anyone is interested please let me know, on direct sale on behalf of client.

Week of training and arena is getting in shape, turns out we have enough surfice material to extend it so now we have more space for our fine little legs. Also very happy because it's holding out despite the heavy rains we did not get even one puddle, jippie! So this week I signed up Donoso for his first Intermedia I!! BUT,. this plan had to be cancelled today as D has developed a agressive rash, probably from some plant. He acutally does not seem that bothered, let's me clean and apply treatment happily but it's painful to watch and of course bridle is out of the question, my baby    I think I know which plant did it, so that plant can start to prepare itself for extinction,..   

Otherwise not much summer holidays for me as I am busy working, selecting horses and attending to clients needs and my animals', but I love my job so I'm good.
Two of Donoso's USA girls are now confirmed in foal, the vet was amazed with the quality of the semen! 
Finish with my two favourite babies :)

Ladies checked again and both little new hearts are still ticking nicely inside Novedosa and Picara, love! And ladies got new proper haircuts with the help of stylist and veterinarian Jorge, thank You so much for all your assistance and excellent work with the herd!!
Girls today
'Capi' has started to settle in and work lightly on the pessoa after his surgery that is healing well. And Camaron has left for his new home in Switzerland, he's a special one to me as we have had a long journey together, have a great life you special little one!

Here in shower after last workout and he says goodbye with his favourite move :)

Many thiiiings going on at the same time and this is what I like, well first Picara was checked by vet this morning, she will most likely be ready for a covering this weekend. Nova is covered last week twice on a perfect timing on a 50 egg and then on ovulation the following day, cross fingers that she's got a new D-baby growing, will be exciting to see a Nova-Donoso combination! Camaron got his feet done today and babies are sleeping outside with nightlamp and snyggly rugs. 'Fia' is now 1 week already, such a beautiful little thing that just floats over the ground! Chula is a love-bug, breeding is so worth it all, it's pure happiness and deep peace to see the little things running around on those four long legs   
Donoso got a workout with pessoa and Start just had a day off in his paddock. Pleased to say both are in good shape despite it all, Chloe could not believe how they were not even sweating a drop after our sessions in the scorching sun. Still waiting for bloodwork on the horse for USA that was delayed because of easter and a crap testtube and had to be resent. Donoso semen for USA has FINALLY got green light from importers USA, O H  M Y  G O D, what a dragged out story but now it's getting exciting! 
Euforia VIK alias 'Fia' today in the green now flowering pretty fields!
