  • Winter is quickly coming to an end and spring is starting to appear. Spring flowers are appearing around the yard and the sound of songbirds is brightening everyday. But, before Spring comes, we had one big heap of snow! One of our horses, my own Dark Moon ZA loves the snow so whilst the snow was fresh I took him up to one of our pastures and we had a great time!

    As always, thanks for looking!

  • What a lovely picture! :D It's never boring with a lovely hack in the snow and it gives also a lot of good cardio workout ^^ But irl, I really want spring now since it's march in few days and we have over 20 centimeters snow outside now and I'm really sick of it and want warmer weather now :P

  • @Christina-Lindblad Thank you! :D It is always fun with fresh snow, but not when it is messy! Spring is definitely on the way! :P

  • Whaaat only one comment so far? How sad, this pretty update deserves a lot more in my opinion. <3 They seem to truly enjoy the ride. Hope you'll post more pics soon * bookmarks the blog *

  • @Bree-Asgard Thank you so much Bree! Your comment really means a lot to me <3 I hope some more people comment soon! More is coming up soon don't worry :D

  • Moderation Committee

    Dark Moon is absolutely gorgeous!
    While I do want spring now I can't help but to kind of miss the snow when seeing that picture, it's the best feeling ever galloping over snowy fields in winter :heart_eyes:

  • @Elin-Fredriksdotter Thank you Elin! He is a handsome chappy with that dark coat! Tell me about it! It is so picturesque! Thanks for your kind words <3

  • Such a beautiful picture, it looks like you both had fun in the snow :)

  • @Callixta-Rosella Thanks for your lovely comment Cali! <3 We had a great time!

  • Woops! So it has been a longggg time since my last update. Real life kind of got in the way and it has been really hard to create/breed/compete/take pictures and show off my horses. However, I have now broken up for summer so hopefully I can get back into showing off my horses - I put a lot of effort into them so it would be nice to share them with the whole community rather than just my friends on slack!

    We are now in the middle of summer - although in the UK we aren't blessed with many hot days. We have had somewhat of a heat wave recently! Luckily we have the staff and facilities to ride and train the horses before the middle of the day when it gets really hot.

    Warrior is one of our oldest horses, we have had him with us for quite a while now but he is a true favourite with everyone on the yard. Despite his name being 'Warrior', he is often known as 'Gent' as he is a true gentleman! He is not your stereotypical stallion, he loves a cuddle and a scratch and will let you groom him for hours on end. In the show ring however, he does turn into a Warrior and he knows his job and will always give 110%! His rider Rose has recently taken over and they have had some fantastic success! He has passed this competitive streak down to his first offspring! We can't wait to see what his future offspring will be like!

    Here are two training pictures of him and Rose! He really does take our breath away!

    He has had quite a big update recently so I would love to hear your thoughts on how he looks!

  • No love for Warrior? :(

  • Warrior is so handsome! I love how he has a big soft eye, and I am definitely a sucker for chestnut horses with lots of white chrome! He looks gorgeous with his new update :-)

  • Moderation Committee

    I was supposed to comment but I forgot appprently! I already told you he's gorgeous but I'll say it again- He's GORGEOUS! :heart_eyes:
    He sounds like such a sweet horse, gotta love them cuddlebugs :hugging:

    Chestnuts.. I love chestnuts so much and yours is such a handsome one! I'm sad you barely got comments yet - the whole blog section seems to be a bit dead right now. :S
    Please post more pictures soon!

    (and expect comments from me..I'm just slow at writing them)

  • You have an adorable chestnut fella there :heart_eyes: I have an soft spot for chestnuts with a lot of white and that's why I own so many by myself ;) I'm looking forward to see more of this talented gentleman in future :D <3

  • I love your pictures and your horses are wonderful. :D

  • @Michelle-Frohman Thank you so much! He is big softie! I am really happy with the outcome of his coat!

    @Elin-Fredriksdotter hehe your comments always mean a lot whether here or on slack ;) thanks for the lovely words! You should definitely cuddle him :D

    @Bree-Asgard Thank you Bree! I cannot tell you how much I love your work and what an honour it is to have you compliment my horses <3 I will definitely post more very soon ;)

    @Christina-Lindblad Thank you my lovely friend <3 you cannot beat a good chestnut horse!

    @Katharina-Opalhaven Thank you so much! <3

  • Well the summer has officially come to an end, the mist is starting to appear down our country lanes whilst hacking out with the horses, the fog is making an appearance on crisp autumn mornings taking the horses to the field and the rugs have been dusted off ready for the coming months. However, we are reminiscing of summer today (and possibly the next few posts!).

    We had a very exciting summer here at Northcote Farm. We were super busy with breedings and competing but we managed to get a few pictures.

    The first I share is of the beautiful NCF Ariel Z. I believe this is her debut as I don't think I have shown her off before! This wonderful mare has actually just turned 8 years old. She is by our stallion Rohirrim's Warrior out of our mare NCF Black Widow Z. Ariel competes in both eventing and show jumping. Taking from both her dam and sire, she is a quiet mare but is a pocket rocket! Here she is doing some dressage training this summer! It is a very quick edit as time is very limited here (hence why this picture was taken in may and being shown in october!!).
