Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long since my last post- I know you're all sitting on the edge of your seats to find out what's been going on around here! All in all, it's been a very, VERY rough six weeks:
Although Kosmo passed his vetcheck, the buyer interested decided to back out, so although it's happy news that he remains available for the clients here, it's upsetting when someone wastes so much of your time.
I came down with 'mystery illness' and have had to take 2 weeks off riding so far. I'm still coaching, but am lacking luster these days. Hoping that the doctors can figure it out soon- don't worry, it's nothing contagious!
Lastly, last Friday we lost our coming yearling, Licorice to unknown causes. Everyone here is very shocked at how suddenly this happened (healthy to gone within a 2 hour time span), and we'll really miss this little girl. She was the sweetest foal we've had to date, and didn't have an inch of disobedience in her. RIP, Licorice. Photo credits to Allison Robbins.
So, all in all, in light of everything that's happened, I will be taking some time away from the farm starting in September, 2012. I am planning to travel to Ontario for a maximum of 1 year, and have found a fabulous private facility willing to take me and some client horses in. This means that I will FINALLY be available to train and consign your horses. I'm taking a very limited number with me, so contact me immediately if interested. We will be at an incredibly gorgeous barn, suited to making your horse look his best to a prospective buyer, or pamper him while training to the next level. The barn's website is available, please contact me if you'd like to take a look, too! I will also make the trek back to Calgary once a month to perform clinics and keep everyone in line- please contact me if you'd like to get involved with these, we'll have much more room for students than in the past, as I will work until I drop!
That's it for now, here's hoping that 2012 picks up!
