♦ Everlast Studfarm ♦ Training ! 10/07
Awww Papy is the cutest! I have a soft spot for drafts even though I like sporty horses. They are just the calmest beings around. We have in fact a surrogate draft cross mare that we sweetly call Lazy
I'm so glad you started a blog, I was wondering what type(s) of horses you'd have. I love that you have a Shire, they are one of my favourite breeds and I love seeing them around
A day with us
Good morning all !
Today I take you with me to show you the routine of our stud farm.
For starters, the most important for our horses, the meal obviously. Since it was not raining that night and it was not too cold, we left
them in the meadows. The first to come was of course Papy, the little greedy. I took the opportunity to make a photo.
A little later, the time to let them eat and digest, Pyxo is busy with Cryptic. Complete grooming, foot care, ... Everything for her to be
Besides, I'm looking for a good blacksmith to shoe the horses of the stud ( in .package ).
My boyfriend relaxed Tictic in the career with some excercises of extension and lengthening. As usual, the beautiful is perfect.
Nothing to say about it is the mare the most calm and applied stud.
Then it was Atymic's turn to work. Little relaxation to calm her and put her to my orders. It was heating up a bit, so I spent a lot of
time on the warm up. I chained on an isolated obstacle, then on a line to work his gallop between obstacles as it tends to accelerate
between them. Lady not being very happy with this excercise that she prevented from doing what she wanted.
Finally , we had a good session anyway and Aty was entitled to his hug and these treats. I'm really happy with the work I can do with
Soon, I would sign up for a eventing competition.
Here is a little text to introduce life at stud! I hope you enjoy
I'm trying to improve the editing of the photos, I find there is a big difference between the first and the last haha
If you have tutorials or tips I gladly take
@Shagaia-Nedja'ri Your horses are in good shape same Papy ! ^^ Cryptic seems talented in Dressage <3
On the other side who took the picture with papy ? The redhead girl on the photo or an other person ?
Oh thanks! We do everything for them to be fit No it's Pyxo her husband, I think it's a little difficult to be she who is taken the picture
New ones at stud !
To put you in a good mood, Atymic comes to say hello!
Some changes in this autumn time at the stud, we have already welcomed a new mare: EWE Into Infinity from @Borja-Domecq
She is a 13-year-old mare who has already proven herself in competition, especially in dressage and jumping. She is a sweet
and affectionate mare, which is quickly linked to our other mare.
I take the opportunity to introduce a new rider who will love us to take care of horses. Leila McGarden (which we see in the
background on the photo). Her father accompanied her on her first day (Owen McGarden). They are of American origin and do not
speak French very well but we get to understand each other. In fact, I met them by pure chance by going to a shop that sells riding stuff
( I bought new saddles ! ), and talking, we sympathized. And that's how I knew Leila was a rider and was looking for an equestrian
center. But she agreed to come to the shelter rather to help us.
In the afternoon, I took Leïla on Cryptic to see her level a little while I was riding Infinity. This mare is really a pearl, I hope to go far
with her in show!
Do not pay attention to Leïla's shoes, she did not unpack everything is still cardboard and did not have time to put these boots haha.
After that, Leila and Owen are spread, smiling, and I went to see my darling in the covered arena. He was riding one of our boarders,
Coreo. He is a talented young Morab stallion that we collected 2 years ago. We worked a lot with him since we found him in a pitiful state.
He had been abandoned in a meadow without water. So he tried to escape but it is found caught in the barbels.
Very fearful and aggressive, he turned into a perfect saddle horse for the competition with some blood from his
pure Arab blood but obedient and very kind.
With Pyxo, we worked on all sorts of disciplines, from dressage, eventing, jumping to hitching and liberty. He is a very versatile horse
that we will soon put up for sale so he finds a good home now that he is treated.
The only remnants of these wounds are his two heals at the neck. We do not see them on the pictures I took it is on the other side.
Welcome to this new pretty girl ! Newport wish you a lot of hapiness with her !
Coreo has a nice blow of jump !
Aww that photo of Atymic
I love the new mare, she's gorgeous! I love her colour!
Thank you very much, I can't wait to show you more !
Hello everyone :D
Today it was pretty quiet in the stud farm. Soon it will be less, we will receive 2 lusitanos removed from their owner who was breeding intensively. Other horses were placed in other studs, we could only get 2. A gray mare and a black stallion. Currently, they are at the vet to finish the care and vaccines. I only received 2 pictures :
In the meantime, I mounted our Thoroughbred reformed races, ELS Devil in the Sky. He began his career in Hunter. For a stallion, he is rather calm and has a sure foot. He is very attentive and does not look so much at the mares. He did not suit the racing world because he was not nervous enough and did not give all he had to win the races. It was therefore recovered to make a good saddle horse.
When at ELS Fairplay, he did not understand the exercise haha
Our little Connemara is a player although he is also nervous. That's why he will make a perfect competition pony ! Leila had a bit of trouble channeling him, but I think he can get on well when he gets to know each other better.
My sweet girl Into I can't feel more grateful for the home you are giving her! The other horses are very beautiful, especially Fairplay and Devil in the Sky
Beautiful horses Shagaïa ! Devil is cute
