Merry Christmas

I cannot believe how fast this year has flown has been another busy year here at our farm. We were very excited to have Nella's first foal arrive! Dolly arrived while Jenna was on foal watch! She was thrilled to be the first to see Dolly. It was all over facebook for several days! We also are very excited to have Genuine Oso's first foal ready to start training. "Pippa" (Genuine Oso Triple) is a pretty palomino who is paid up into the OBBO Reining Futurity and if she's anything like her Dad, she will be very pretty to watch! We welcomed "Peanut" (Topdun Starlight) to our barn late last fall and his training has been coming along real well. Peanut has just an amazing temperment and he's such a natural at the reining manoeuvres. We can't forget everyone's favorite, Earl (One Slick Pepto). Earl has been with us since his 2 year old year. Earl was ready to show this year and made his debut at the OBBO. Earl is a very happy horse who loves his job and has mastered the turn around. Gary is known for his patience and, unlike other trainers, he doesn't believe in pounding on a horse and having him spin out of fear. He wants them to turn around with confidence and enjoy the turn around. Gary is always educating himself and learning new techniques to help improve his horses. This year he was very happy to work with Loris Epis and together, they helped Earl and his spin. It was great to hear Loris say that Earl was definitely an Open horse and a smart horse. We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We hope everyone takes the time to enjoy the holiday season and spend it with their family and friends. From our home to yours.....Merry Christmas!
