There’s a waitlist for who has the worst hoof abscess to enjoy the dry for a night or two 🙂
Well we are starting to become much more acclimatised to winter now. Chanel (my website manager & designer) has been asking me to write a blog for a good couple of months now. It’s a cold, muddy and rainy day outside so I thought it was a perfect time to write this one in wrapped up in front of the heater! 😉
An old article but still a goodie 😉 thanks NZ Horse & Pony Magazine

So far this season I have had two stars in my team… DSE Sunset Pass (aka Gary/Gazza) winning the Beyond the Barriers Overall title for 2016. In the process he scaled and cleared 1.50m, which is no mean feat for a lot of horses, let alone one less than a year off the track!!! Needless to say I was very proud of his performance and what an awesome way to showcase the versatility of the NZ thoroughbred – go Gina and Nicky!
DSE Tangolooma (Bones) made it back to an event YAHHHHHHHH 😉
Kelley Barrington, our amazing vet who has spent 20 months, scanning/flexing/stressing and probably has many more years ahead of this, I can’t thank her enough. Bones has also had Platinum Performance in his diet every day, and I’m sure that has helped with the healing process!
