You are reminded much more sharply of the change of season at our new property further south.. the fence lines of deciduous trees are changing all manner of beautiful colours and there is a distinct drop in temperature at night already! Clippers out.
However no complaints, our first summer at the new place has been awesome and the facilities are ready to come into their own over the wet winter months.
Our show season has been resonably quiet with a small, green team and being busy with the two places, however, still succesful. The horses all progressed throughout the season and jumped some great rounds. Next season is going to be quite alot more full on as we have oodles of youngsters coming of age for the competition arena at once! A lot of exciting horses to take out, we are looking forward to it!
This seasons foaling round too, was smaller than usual, however I think there are more than ever that we are obsessed with!! Some exciting new bloodlines for us with the arrival of our young colt Kingswood’s first progeny plus some more foals by the superb Long Spring stallions.
I had an awesome ‘holiday show’ at Horse of the year this year as I only took my little Possum! She was an absolute angel all week and loved every minute of her first HOY experience. She jumped perfectly without a single rail in her 1.20m class, 1.25m class and 1.25m champ class on the Saturday and was in the top 10 in two of them. She had only done her first 1.25m at Tauranga two weeks before (she placed 5th in that) so she had an awesome end to her season and I am so excited to be able to get back out into 1.30m plus classes next season. I am lucky to have such an amazing horse.
So all is well in the Weiti world and I will keep you updated on our activities this winter!
P.S we are looking for a working pupil this winter if anyone is interested.
