  • BFFs

    From the day we introduced them to eachother, IRCE Corabella (sired by @Fernanda-Luchetta's stallion Fredrikelof's Exeter) and IRCE Alverdite (sired by our own stallion IRCE Barbaro) seem to get along very well. It's easy to say these two mares are best friends to each other. Even though they sometimes get in a fight (mares being mares?), we soon see them sharing food between the two of them.

    And once again I try my hands at fully editing my pictures!


  • They are honestly a gorgeous duo. You've done such a great job on Corabella, I'm proud Exy keeps throwing out some pretty pons! And as I've told you quite a few times already, your photos looks just so nice - the lighting, contrasting tones and landscapes make them so unique. Also, let's just not talk about your editing... Great job, dear :two_hearts:



  • Such gorgeous mares! I love the soft warm atmosphere of your pictures they’re always so pretty both unedited and edited :heart_eyes:



  • @Fernanda-Luchetta I'm super happy I had the oppertunity to use Exeter as her sire! :smile: I couldn't wish for a better looking filly. And thank you so, so much for the massive compliment! :cry: I'm slowly but surely trying to find my'own' editing and picture style. Again, thank you so much! :revolving_hearts:

    @Luna-Smit thank you Luna! They are absolutely the sweetest two mares together, well usually that is! :smile:



  • Bonding

    Soon it's time to start working with the new generation of youngsters. Between the usual time they still spend in the pastures, Alexandra, Bree, Jess and I work with them to get them to trust us and build a bond before we start breaking in. For Jess this is more nervewerecking than it is for us, since she started working at Iron Crest Jess made big improvements and has proven she is ready for a next challenge. I decided it was time for her to take on working with one of the youngsters, IRCE Tamarinda (Sire IRCE Indoctro). From the day she knew, and Tammy was weened, Jess has already spent a lot of time with her new companion! When she sees her, Tammy quickly moves to her stall door to greet Jess, which usually ends in a very nice bonding session between the two ladies.

  • Cutie <3



  • Your pose looks adorable, Jill - and so does this photo. I also love the way you edited Tammy's mane there. I'll never get tired of seeing your photos :two_hearts:



  • @Eva-Evans thank you :heart: Tammy is an absolute sweet heart :smile:

    @Fernanda-Luchetta I'm so happy how it turned out :heart_exclamation: the two of them are just an amazing pair, Tammy is the most curious and sweetest horse around. And she really sports her 'just-out-of-bed' look :smirk: :sparkles:



  • Baby blues

    We're slowly slipping into the season for the new foals to be born! A bit sooner as expected, our first foal has been born. Our mare IRCE Gilactic has given birth to her first foal. Star is a very calm new mother and likes to keep her eyes on her little baby boy, be it from up close or further away.

    This lovely little stallion is IRCE Vertigo, aka vance. Vance is a very flashy and playful foal sired by the amazing SPHR Vervex ( @Fernanda-Luchetta ) and has really taken after him. This boy definitley speak for himself when trotting around the pastures with all the pride he has. Judging his leg work, Vance looks like a great show jumping prospect.

  • What a stunner! and that little floofy forelock is just TOO adorable :heart_eyes:



  • Fluffy baby! <3 :heart_eyes:



  • he is so cute <3



  • His face is so adorable! Give him an extra treat for me :heart_eyes:



  • what a cutie 😘



  • I think everyone who knows me a bit knows the special spot Vervex holds in my heart. That being said, I love the work you've done on Vance - he looks flawless and I adore how much he looks like Vee. I also must repeat how much your editing and vivid, contrasting tones gets me every time :two_hearts:



  • Such a leggy boy <3



  • Ohh my gosh, what an absolute cutie! Vance looks like such a bright little character, I hope he does great as a show jumper! <3



  • Thank you all so, so much for all the kind words! :sob: We're still expecting 4 babies to introduce very shortly!
    @Fernanda-Luchetta you can't even imagine how happy I was that Vee sired this lovely boy! :cry:



  • A little lady

    We're happy to welcome the second foal of this season, and it's a little lady. Another mare, out of 4, who's become a first time mother this season is IRCE Schneestern.

    She had quite a troublesome birth during a night in the pastures, as we didn't expect her foal to arrive as soon as it did. Nonetheless, we were surprised to find the lovely duo in their pasture this morning. The lovely little lady, called IRCE Scharmisé, was still slightly wet and Schneestern was recovering from labour when we arrived at the pastures. Amy is a very curious little filly, but still scared of the big world. When something unexcpected happens, she makes sure to quickly go back to her mother who comforts her before she bolts off again.

    And please don't mind the lazy editing :see_no_evil:


  • @Jill-Reyes Congrats! <3 She's a diamond. I love having new lovely little dears come into the world! It happened to me just last week! :D
