merry christmas and happy new year!

Winter 2011/2012 has been another whirlwind around here. We welcomed our second daughter, Peyton Leah Harper on December 20, 2011 at 8:35am. We couldn't be happier she is finally here. 2 yrs of being pregnant was difficult! Can't wait for Spring already and to get riding season underway. We start foaling in April as well. Stay warm the rest of the Winter !

 

July 16/17 westman dressage show

Gitano and I attended The Lemonade Daze Westman Dressage show, July 16/17th  for his Dressage ring debut.  It was a humid 35 degrees all weekend. Despite the heat, we had a great time! We showed Equine Canada  First Level tests with scores of 61.77 % to 65%.  I was so proud of him carrying me through the tests at 17 weeks pregnant! Here is a few photos from that weekend. Cadence is giving him a big kiss for being High point Champion first Level at his first show.

Summmer 2011

We welcome the warmer weather! Winter and Spring have not been nice here in southeast Saskatchewan. Lots of snow and heavy rains were the cause of many floods and damage this year. We were pretty lucky and did not have the damage and flooding many others faced.

2011 will be another busy year here at the farm. Breeding season has come to an end but haying has just started along with halter breaking foals and working with the young stock.  Gitano is attending his first Dressage show July 16th.  We are also expecting baby #2 at the end of the year!

Due to another pregnancy, I have marked down the prices on most of our horses. This is a great time to purchase a beautiful half Andalusian!

merry christmas and happy new year!

2010 was great with the arrival of our daughter, Cadence. We are excited for 2011 and what the future holds. We can't wait for Spring already and I am anxious to get some hours in the saddle. Gitano has been drove some this winter but I think he would like to get back riding and hit some shows as well. His first foal crop is coming 2 yrs old and I can't wait to get them started lightly under saddle. Stay warm the rest of the winter!

baby is here!

We are proud to welcome Cadence Anne Harper.  She was born Sept. 15, 2010 at 8:53am

 

summer is here!

Summer is underway.  We are getting ready for haying as well as hitting a few more shows before baby arrives.  It is a very busy time of year!

We had 6 foals born here at the farm and 3 to outside mares. 9 Gitano foals in total this year and they are all doing wonderful.

Watch for updated pictures of the foals when they finish shedding out.
