Allready October!

Fall's here, rain, mud, cold and all that comes with it too!

The barn is full this fall. My two limping QH fillies are just hanging in their pastures. Ritzy, Annelies trotter mare looks good and are hopefully safely in foal to Blue York Yankee for a 2015 baby. Her 2014 filly Oscietra is growing by the minute and is as pretty as they come.
 Our youngest, Olivia 2, is staking claim to Ida's shetland Fiffilina and insists on leading her to and from the pen and riding her every chance she gets. Ida and her pony Furix Five are doing good also. She's working him about as much as she can with school, homework and friends. They helped me in a cowworking clinic the other day and they both seemed to enjoy it!

Annelie also have a 5year old 17+ hands warmblood to start for a friend and she's got her handsful!

The horses at Todd & Julie's in Idaho are doing excellent also. Gunnen Olena is leading the pack with little over $2.000 in the bank after a 3rd place finish in the open Montana RCH Futurity and 2nd in the Intermediate open.

 Spook Nu You finished 6th open and 5th Intermediate and pushed her winnings to $1600 I believe. She's placed in all three of her shows so far. 2nd open and 1st int.open in the Central Idaho Futurity, 5/6 in the Utah Futurity to go with the Montana show.

 Hagar, (Gunnen Olena) is leaving for the Idaho RCH Futurity today where he'll face alot stiffer competition than he's seen so far. No expectations other than he keeps developing and improving. He's still alittle behind in his herdwork etc but the experiance will do him good I think.

We're moving the little filly SDP Fourina C up to Todds this week also. I've thought long and hard on the subject and realised I really want to give her a shot at Reno. She's the best bred horse we have and though I love cutting, my heart & soul will alway's be more in the ranching and cowhorse world. A great big THANK YOU! to Gregg Smith for taking her in and caring for her!

We've had some cowworking clinics here a couple of weekends and it's been really fun! Great people and a pleasure to work with and help you all! Thank You!
