    Match looks just like Snow! He really inherited his father's looks I must say. I hope his show career is just as successful as his too :heart: He's sure to catch everyone's attention in the show ring being that handsome.

    We can stay assured that our horses are always in good and caring hands when we have such excellent staff to keep an eye on them all. Julianna Levitt has worked here for five years now and she has a strict routine for the daily care of the horses. Her role at SSE is mainly general staff, but she also functions as a flat rider on a daily basis. She enters a competition class or two from time to time, but what she enjoys the most is the everyday grooming and caring for Mandy's jumpers. This photo was taken back when we leased "LMEC Calippo" (LMEC Cadre Noir x LMEC Empress), to the left in this photo, from @Christina-Lindblad - a dark bay Danish Warmblood stallion that did very well with Mandy in competition. He has since then returned to his home and still does well in shows. We own his dam "LMEC Empress" and she is to be used within our breeding program after she is retired from sport.

    In this photo you can see "CDC Eminent" (SSE Old Navy x LEC Elusive Embrace), a bay Hanoverian stallion bred for us by our dear friend Erin Ward. He is grandson to our esteemed stallion "SSE Winter Is Coming". Eminent has an amazing work ethic and he feels fantastic in the competition ring, but he can be quite annoying on a daily basis. He never stands still, he always tries to distract Julianna when she does her daily routine with him, and he whinnies so loud that you wish you had covered your ears before he started. Luckily for Julianna, Eminent kept himself occupied with biting on the cross ties while she hurried with putting on his hoof oil. She has also discovered that binding his tail up in a knot prevents him from swishing his tail in her face while grooming him. "SSE Zinober" (Howler HF x SSE Femme Fatale), our handsome grey NWB in the foreground, is also quite the annoying brat from time to time, and he was waiting quite impatiently for Julianna to put him in his box as he knew that feeding time was just around the corner. Zinober is one of our most promising prospects - he came home with a win in L9 in the recent R-show, and this ain't the first time he has done so. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for these guys!

  • Wow this is stunning! The detail in the picture is insane! Love, Love , Love :heart:

  • wwoow beautiful pic <3

  • Stunning picture! And I like your descriptions, not too short not too long, showing your horses are different by characters and how sse lives it's daily life :)

  • PR Committee

    I've really enjoyed admiring your gorgeous horses from the first post down to these beautiful three stallions. I love seeing horses in their home surroundings and candid shots like this - it also gives me the chance to drool over such pretty barns too! :p
    Eminent sounds like he has such a big personality, but I bet that sweet pink nose gets him forgiven easily when he's being a brat. And what a gorgeous boy Zinober is, I can see why he's one of your top prospects with that pedigree, let's hope his great career so far continues :blush:

  • Calle!!! <3 I'm so happy over that you could take him for so long time and help him to grow and develope to the gorgeous stallion that he's today. I have followed him in every show he entried and it's so fun to see the results of your hard work with him and I appreciate it SO much that you could help me with him <3 <3 Now here at home with us, he have settled down really well and have managed to level up to Grand Prix and he actually won his debute in this class, what a boy! :heart_eyes:

    Then next to the 2 other stunners in the picture - both of them are gorgeous! and I absolutely love how you have put down a lot of details on Zinober to get an real feeling of an true close up of him like the details in the crossties, eyelashes etc - it was spot on :D and we shall not forget their quirks either xD we can admit that's never boring with those horses since it always happens somethimes when they're up to do something, both in good and bad xD

  • @Neeve-Kalford @Nina-Ricchi Thank you so much, you are too kind^^
    @Constantine-Vale Thanks a lot, I appreciate that you enjoy the descriptions, too, and not just the photos! They're fun to write and I hope they add to the photos :blush:
    @Callixta-Rosella How kind of you to say, Callixta! Thanks a lot :relieved: Haha, I, too, love seeing everyday pics for the opportunity to see the facilities! Haha:)
    @Christina-Lindblad I'm very glad to have had my time with him, he's a wonderful horse to work with! So it's me who should say thank you :blush: And congrats on his win, that's amazing news! Hahah, yes, the horses definitely have their naughty side, most of them! Sides that I find just as amazing as the obedient side of them ;)

    Zinobar :heart: his coat is getting so light! How could you call that sweet face annoying ;) he could happily come to Heatherwood and annoy me all he wants haha.

  • I was actually about to ask if I see correctly that Eminent is eating the rope hahaha

    Mandy you are on fayaaaah with these updates! Just plopping 'em out! This is very unusual for me, gotta get used to that haha

  • @Johanna-Masters Hehehe, yes, which both good and bad! Sad to see his dapples fade, but exciting toes the beautiful coat that appears under them all! :see_no_evil: Well, I tell you - he is easily forgiven :wink:
    @Lidija-Rotherford Yes, indeed! He's a little sneak :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: And haha, perhaps I am! Better take advantage of my motivation for editing while it's still up and running :grin:
