Clyde cross Julia has had a HUGE chunky and sweet natured roan filly by Handy Andy called Weiti Nee’s Up! (no K due to alphabetical order!) Another new addition to the Weiti mob Corland mare Lacey has had a fantastic chestnut roan filly to impressive young Longspring sire Lord Larino LS, should be a potent mix for jumping stardom, very pleased she’s a filly and a fun color too! Her name is Weiti Opera.
We are very busy at the moment, there is a large herd of youngsters waiting to be broken in and 4year olds that need to come in and further their education. We are working hard on these greenys, for me this is the best part of the job, I love breaking in a young horse, learning about his temperament and finding out what he’s good at. The older showjumpers are all in good form too, They are a bit hot at the competitions as they have been few and far between so far this season, however all are performing well. We jumped at Pukekohe last weekend and had a good show. Woodhill sands next weekend then Pukete at St Peters.
Recent sales include Handy Andy gelding Weiti Mr Universe, Gorgeous new season filly Weiti Minuet was sold at one week old and cool grey Ratamill Rodrigo was sold to free up some roundpen time for other breakers!
The Waikato farm is devaloping further, the horses are in their boxes now and the roof is on the washdown/kitchen/ tackroom barn, alot of cleaning up to do inside after the hundreds of birds and tens of possums that have been hiding out in their for the past few years! We have done our silage to feed the hungry hordes at both propertys and now all the weeds are rareing their little heads we are on major spraying rounds! so busy times but glad with progress.
