We have had a busy couple of months.   Two of the fillies purchased from Tatts. Ireland November National Hunt Sale came home in May and have settled into the routine very well.DSC_1154

The Chestnut filly is by Shirocco x Liss Na Siog (Old Vic) and the dark brown filly is by Califet x Ebony Palm (Great Palm).  We are looking forward to great things with these fillies.

Naranja is enjoying a well earned break, happily living out with Snip, Bugsy and the two yearling fillies.

Lecon Benefique visited Kayf Tara following the arrival of her  Telescope colt earlier this year.  She is now home and scanned in foal.  Fingers crossed for a safe delivery in April 2018.

Our boarding mare, Centoria, went over the water to visit Sholokhov and is now back home, scanned in foal for a March delivery.

Our Yeats colt, Freddie, is growing on well.  He is now 10 weeks old and looks like he is going to be a big lad!

Freddie is happy to have his field playmate, Buzz (by Telescope), back home.  Buzz here tucking into his favorite field lick.

And finally, we have a grey filly!  After a long while searching for a Martaline filly (in our price range), we found her at the Goffs Land Rover Sale in June.  She was foaled in January 2014 out of a Winged Love mare named Rosewater (GER),  she has gone into pre-training with Denis Leahy.  So, fingers crossed.
