This little man was born less than 24 hours ago and he’s already been on our Gallagher Equine weighing system. We like to weigh our mares just before and straight after foaling, it gives us a benchmark to manage the mares health in the weeks after foaling. This cruiser weighed in at 55.5kgs.
It’s been fun adding to the obstacle course over winter - here’s the new addition this week.
The first foal of the season arrived at a very civil 8.30pm last night. Bacardi VWNZ - a gorgeous filly by Bravado Ego Z out of InDesign O VWNZ.
Foal watch about to start for the season, exciting times ahead!

Since arriving in New Zealand these two Stallions have matured into the most amazing horses I have had the privilege of producing. With two crops of stunning foals on the ground and the third crop due to arrive any day, the quality of their progeny is outstanding.

Part of our fitness routine - the horses love being outside in the natural water walker.

A beautiful winters day.
