♕ Rotherford Estate | Lidija's Blog ~ quick update [07.01.'19]
I cannot say I am the most motivated person on EC at the moment due to several factors, but I managed to set up a small update for you to see what's going on at the Estate for the time being.
We have recently purchased a few project horses at great prices and cannot start to show them and train them in a bit more detail. The only horse that we did not buy as a project is a mare that returned to RFE, the lovely Sibelle.
You might know her because we bred her for @Luke-Alhmann and now she's back as a fully grown 4yo and she will be starting in her first 60cm show this January. She is a very lovely horse and one for the future. Her sire is Samoa (by our stallion Sandro PF) and out of our retired GP jumping mare Salem.
Next up is a big, big, gray British Warmblood stallion by GE Lossy Audio, a stunner named Winterkarst. He is a pleasure to ride and very smooth with huge gaits and a huge jump. He is competing at 1.50m and is closing in on his last title, sitting on nearly 160pts when we bought him. At 15 years of age (must gray him out a bit lol) we must look after him a bit more but he is definitely in his prime time.
Next up, one I am SUPER excited for is a Dutch Warmblood stallion by RP Lord of Chaos (by MSE Wheels Of Time ) and out of RDEC Habraxa (by RDEC Chamaan ) ! With a whopping bonus in jumping spilling out from the maximum 25 points, he was too good to pass up on!
Desafinado is currently 7yo and at 1.10m with little over 50pts to his name in jumping, and a similar level and result in eventing.
And here's one of our newly hired riders, Kelly Oliver, riding two new mares.
This cutiepie is Layric, a new show hunting and field hunting star, with a nice point count in each discipline. Knows her job and is sooo very kind, like all Monachyle's horses. Not a bad bone in her body and she'd make a lovely addition to any stable!
Also 15 years old.
And last (but not least as we have two more horses in quarantine) is Pepper, a seasoned eventer competing at CCI 2* and has 150pts! She will be kept in sport awhile longer as she is 19yo, but in case we notice this is no longer good for her she will retire to a nice brood life at the Estate
Pepper, Winterkarst, Sibelle and After Dark (one that's still quarantined) will be moving away over to @Toni-Lamberti later next week as the team in Aimsir will be keeping them safe and well trained and shown for us
