Long time!

April, May, June & July have come and gone and I guess it's about time to update the "news" here at the ranch!

We've got a super cute little trotter filly out of Annelies mare Ritzy! She's adorable and it looks like she'll be a big, well put together thing.

My mare Kick The Cat is hurt again! Coffinbone fracture, tendon tear and possibly some other damage to her left hindleg. All accomplished while in the pasture. We were looking to hit a few shows this year but those plans are now folded. Tuesday we'll know more after her MRI but it's not looking to promising.

On the more possitive front, our US ponys are doing great! Went for a visit end of June and got to ride 'em and check up on 'em. Great looking bunch and the 3year olds, Spooks Nu You and Gunnen Olena have just made their showdebute as I write this in the little Central Idaho Reined Cow Horse Futurity. Herdwork yesterday and alittle bit of good and not so good from the reports. Spook Nu You is sitting second after her 70 run and Gunnen Olena had some tough luck with his cows and posted a 66. Reinwork today and he should improve his score some if he runs to form. Reining isn't Spook Nu You's forte but she's getting better all the time.

2year old Dualin Cherroo looks the part also. Beautiful filly with all the athletic ability in the world!
She's brought along nice and easy with plenty of ranchwork to go along with the arena stuff.

The yearling filly SDP Fourina C looks the part and is doing great at Greg Smith's. Just running in the pasture being a horse still.

Ida and her pony Furix have had a great spring and summer with a few shows and a ride camp here at the ranch with some friends.
