Nu börjar det mysa till sig på min lilla gård, samtidigt så saknar jag mer eller mindre ALLT och ALLA svenskt/ar/or, så där så det riktigt suger i själen, ni vet? Det har varit riktigt jobbigt in i självständigheten, inte bara för att det är mkt att göra och organisera men pga brist på helt vanlig medmänsklighet, den kvaliteten kom tydligen generellt inte med i den spanska folksjälen. Alltså when the shit hits the fan it goes quiet. Jobbigt. Va fan tog alla vägen liksom. Vissa försöker till och med utnyttja situationen då de vet att jag är en snäll person så då har jag har fått rensa och sätta stopp för vissa samarbeten. Då får man gympa integriteten, stänga den dörren och öppna en annan. Tack och adjö. Sedan måste jag säga att de personer jag fått stöd av har varit helt otroliga och jag kommer absolut komma ihåg vilka dessa var. De människor jag nu samarbetar med ger positiv energi och det är så jag vill ha det, för det är det jag ger och då blir det ett konstruktivt och trevligt samarbete. Så som en tröst till hjärta och svenska själ så har jag nu kört en sväng på alla svenska play-program jag kan komma över, lite samhälls program, lite nyheter och så Ryttareliten som nu är favorit så klart. Helt underbart tröstande att känna och se äkta svensk anda och harmoniska samarbeten, gud så civiliserat. Idag fick frukost utfodrings stand-in hurra, så jag kunde få lite annat gjort på morgonen, det regnade i princip hela morgonen så tyvärr har vi nu ny färsk lera, yirk. Jag städade min lilla ridbana och spolade staket och dörrar, nöjd. Så jag pysslade om mina djur som för tillfället är 8 st, killarna fick stå inne och mysa med sina varma täcken och 3 rätters hö bestående av vanligt hö, havre på strå (favorit) samt liiite alfalfa bara för det är så gott. Nya halmen är helt sagolik, guldig och fluffig och tydligen god så lyxmadrasser var det här. Är väldigt nöjd över stonas lösdrift för de hänger gärna i den, har strött och satt en nattlampa om ifall att Picara skulle få för sig att föla, maybe baby? Hon har en rund fin och låg mage men hon har nog ändå några dagar kvar enligt juvret. Gör inget, vi inväntar gärna bättre väder för detta eventet. Kan verkligen rekommendera Horseware föltäcket, det har jag använt i princip varje natt på Chula och det sitter alltid perfekt. Helt sagolikt trevligt temperament på den där lilla fröken, jag ger henne lite ASEA och kol oralt för hon var först lite förkyld och nu har hon haft diarre och när jag kommer med sprutan så gapar hon! Täcket trär jag över huvudet och den enda gång jag behövde ta på grimma var när jag skulle släppa ut dem i stora hagen, hon ville inte gå igenom grinden för där hade ju varit ett staket med ström innan. Men hon lät mig baxa ut henne steg för steg för hon litar på sin matte, finaste! Hon är så rund och fin i alla former och vinklar och rör sig riktigt vackert. 
Chuli med sin pyjamas som hon nu helt vuxit i och jag får till och med spänna ut några hål. 
 

Här är då en Festivo avkomma, född 2009, riktigt fin och en kopia av sin far fast med bättre kors och inte riktigt lika stor. Har en Sverige bokning från Sverige i år.
Önskar fortsatt trevlig helg!

This summer two breeders from Denmark inseminated 5 mares with Donoso VII and all 5 was confirmed in foal after first insemination. As my swedish storage was running out they had to share 3 dosis between all 5 of them but these incredible mares was confirmed on first insemination and there are still straws left over for next year!! Super fertile Donoso! Awesome mares! And warm thanks and congratulations to most professional danish breeders and veterinarians!
This result is of course a total sucess for all of us and we look forward to seeing 3 PRE babies and 2 PRE/Knabstrupper babies (yes the ones with the dots) D-babies being born summer 2014 in Denmark!       

But I have not had the best experience with setting up and storing semen abroad. To make Donoso VII conveniently available to the swedish breeders I sent a relatively big storage to Flyinge in south of Sweden some years ago. Unfortunately the breedingstation Flyinge changed policy and I had to move storage to another company called Skåne Semin. I contracted their services and being in Spain I obviously relied on them to do the job with orders and transportation. Still I seemed to be constantly on the phone to mareowners and coordinating emails. This summer there was a incident with transportation and a mare did not have her semen delivered in time. The delivery was not only delayed but actually lost so all the semen was destroyed and the mare did not get pregnant. Disaster and a loss for all of us. When the storage company later wanted to send a bill for this failed delivery I had had enough. I did not ask for a compensation for my lost semen but I wanted the company to at least compensate the mareowner for the veterinarian costs related to this incident. As far as I know they never did.
So now I have decided to keep storage with my veterinarian here in Spain, Vet. Dra Concha Cuetara who is the most professional in her field, she collects, evaluates, stores and transports the most valuable semen all over the world with 100% expertise. And she will never fail a client.

I am very pleased and proud to be able to offer first class breedingservices from Donoso VII worldwide! Donoso's semen has passed many tests from the TRC and Dra C. Cuetara but most importantly has now proven to have excellent fertility in the field. With these guarantees I have fullfilled my responsability as the stallionowner. I don't consider myself responsable for the status of the mare and I reckon it's the responsability of the mareowner to contract a professional enough veterinarian to do a good job with the insemination. So from 2014 and onwards the semen will be sold by dosis and will be charged when ordered. Like this I can give the mareowner the right to inseminate unlimited amount of mares and they get the oportunity to, like the danish breeders, get more mares pregnant on one single shipment!

This morning the vet told me he thought Pica was due anytime now, I have a feeling it's not quite time yet but difficult to say as it is her first one.. 
Today I saw Festivo's chestnut son, he already about 165 cm!

 

And he moves like this

SICAB is over and it has as always been a intense and wonderful experience. Great to meet friends and collegues and celebrate a year of work, collaborations and friendship. I only regret I did not manage to see everyone, this event is big and the hours seems like minutes rushing by when there is so much you want to talk, do and see. This year the competiton was celebrated in a slightly smaller scale, SICAB normally has around a 1000 horses competing during the week but this year the number of participants was around 500. I enjoyed very much seeing some beautiful horses and movers. Even though you can see a red thread in composition of both mares and stallions there is still unequal quality of especially the movements. You still see hocks that go up and out behind (like trotting horses) and many are not diagonally correct. Some of these still get good scores because they move with big gestures which I think it is a mistake when the horse do not have a correct coordination front and back and the movement naturally produces a hollow back and lack of rhytm. A classy typical spanish horse moving with grace and ease is such a divine sight and if you want an example of what I am referring to do look up this years Campeón Adulto Mejores Movimientos 2012 - YERBERO - Reproductor Calificado and Joven Reproductor Recomendado for dressage and Campeón Adulto Funcionalidad SICAB 2011. Yerbero is pretty close to the perfection of a typical classy spanish horse moving with grace, ease and power. Neither of his parents has ever competed, to me he is not a horse produced by calculation of bloodlines nor merits from parents (neither has competed not even once), he is simply a grand horse, bred in the spanish manner and one that came out with distinction thanks to a spanish professional breeder with a good eye for quality. As I have no pictures from SICAB I post these where Yerbero is winning the goldmedal in FIECVAL, The European Championships 2011, next to Festivo that got the bronze.
Yerbero (middle) scored 28,333 in the funcionalidad, outstanding!

Festivo has started making his way to the dressage stars in the USA! We follow him with great satisfaction, this is were I imagined him, showing everyone that his natural relaxed movement stands up to all races! Way to go Doreén, Robert and Phil, and well done for being at the right place at the right time giving Festivo the oportunity to get this important merit nailed to his curriculum!

For both me and Moli, tuesday was another bumpy day again, this time lots of it in his head and some with pus. No fever and eating and looking normal. So, I had to inject him again.. Poor beautiful Moli, but excluding the han for the bumps he looks good don't you think?

   

Yesterday he was fine again but I was not. We went out for final family dinner and it turned out to be my turn for intoxication, not very interesting at all, had to take the day off. Setting up the breeding year and here we have the beautiful boys in catalogue Studs of Spain, correction: 34 PRE stallions in total and 10 of those Qualified Reproductors, two of them are Donoso VII & Festivo MR.

After Donoso's TRC day full of emotions we set out for the second day of TRC challenge. Of course this also became a very important moment for us, and it turned out to be last walk of fame with our Big Baby.. So here we give you another of our 2011 highlights: Proudly presenting our second Calificado stallion - Festivo MR!


Festivo MR - Reproductor Calificado 2011 


At second test and just like with Donoso I did not know if he had passed the first one.. smilingly he passed both and its a very proud trainer/ part-owner riding here!

Or; 'No bad thing which doesn't bring something good'. Yesterday I got the flu and anything on top of fibromyalgia is really too much so I decided to go to the doctor and told him I needed something that pulled me UP. He gave me something that despite of agressive flu made me bounce out of bed at 8 am and all day today I have been feeling better than ever! Removing the ache and pain I normally have I realised how EASY life can be and now I am really inspired again to GET 100% well, again! I went to stables and I had decided not to ride but Donoso was begging me so I gave in to him. The others had to stand back but they had been out in the sun so they were happy continue eating their afternoon hay. Back to doctor that told me he wants to draw more blood to check everything, so tomorrow am I will be there, again.

Here's a update I forgot to post on Big Baby Festivo in Dressage Daily. I am very proud to see him out there and feeling very connected to him, the time we had together was full of intensity and beautiful emotions. His new owners has given him such a great life and on last email from his trainer he told me that Festivo is all he ever dreamt of and that riding him is like having christmas everyday  and that makes me very happy to hear!
