After an unprecedented harsh winter we are all impatiently waiting for Spring
The mares and foals were enjoying the new experience!

Ireland is in fodder crisis!

Have having had one of the wettest summers in history, a harsh winter with snowfalls of up to one meter and severe blizzards stopped life as we know it in Ireland in February and March. As a result, hay, straw and silage reserves are coming to an end and many farmers and their livestock are facing into severe feed shortages. We are on our last bales of good hay too and really do need some grass growth urgently.

Our two foals are a lovely filly by New Bay ex Bluebell and a Vadamos colt ex Theola

We are looking ahead to a very exciting Flat season with many SL-breds all over the world. Closest to home though are My Snowdrop who runs in the colours of our exciting Swordlestownlittle Syndicate! Mr Oxx has scheduled a return to the track for her in the end of April and we hope to see our Syndicate Members turning out in force this time!

Also in training in Ireland is 2yo Rosie Scot (below right) who is in training with Ken Condon and will run in the colours of Mr. Paul Newman. 

Waiting in the wings is our Zebedee ex Theola filly who is currently in pre-training with Denis Cullen

We are very proud of the success of our SL representative Dinozzo in Hong Kong. He is now a Group 3 winner and has won 5 races in total and more than half a million euros in prize money. His international rating is 110 which makes him a proper black type horse!

Sadly we lost our precious Buttons recently. She had a great life at Swordlestown Little and gave us much joy and happiness.
