Another weekend, another show!
Both the Boys - Arreton Majnoun +M and Malleegrove Mandalla +M -were very well behaved in close confines with some rather frisky fillies this weekend.
It was a very successful show with lots of laughs and good company. It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces in the ring. We don't usually brag about placings. but for 25 years Jessie has been competing and had yet to win a rosette... until the weekend when she and the boys were awarded one each and Manny and Sally acheived another under saddle. It was raining rosettes!
As usual the photo gallery will be updated with photos from the weekend, We hope you will take the time to have a look.
Breeding wise, all systems are go. Fairview Amira Shaklan, on loan from Trincada Stud, has had a 16 day postiive scan. fingers crossed it's a filly! Malleegrove Maya has been inseminated after sadly slipping last seasons foal. She is in the capable hands of the Halado Park breeding team this season and hopefully we will have more success with her this season. Malleegrove Mandalla+M is getting geared up for his first lady of the season - our wonderful Jakassa Serabi (Mirakh Hajjal x Temula) we are just waiting on the construction of the dummy mare so we are able to start collections.
We have a very busy few months ahead of us and hope that you will check back in to keep updated. You never know what we will get up to next!
Thanks as usual to Sally, Sonia, Roger, Judy, Tania and everyone else who helps along the way.
Cheers, and enjoy this glorious weather! Jessie, John and Caroline.
