It is almost May but the weather makes life difficult for the mares and us!

Today is English 2000 Guineas Day and marks the start of the Classic Season.

It has been a very cold and wet spring which has taken its toll, not only on our fields, but also on our mares. They are finding it very difficult to cycle properly and so we still have mares to be covered.

However, they all have foaled and this is the first year where we have a 100% filly crop. While this poses its problems for the sales, we are happy that they are all healthy and well. Of course we still miss our old stalwarts Khatela and Miss Shaan but we are also happy to report that Bluebell has settled in well in Kentucky and is in foal to Kitten's Joy. 

The star of the show is once again Sogno Verde's foal, this time a filly by Dark Angel

Above fillies by Intello, Zebedee and Camelot. Amelia loves Nina!
