LMEC Stable Blog | October 17th - A XC day in October



  • @Christina-Lindblad said):

    Sometimes through our lives, we're getting to learn some lessons and promise ourselves to not do this again, ever

    Uh oh. :joy: Looks like somebody had to learn the hard way... Still, it might not have been much fun for Amy, but it looks like Lily and Belle had lots of fun! This is such a cute little story, Christina. I love being able to see little snapshots from the everyday activities at other stables.

    I stayed in Mora, in Dalarna, for a few days, as well as central Stockholm. I actually drove in from Norway so saw some variation in the countryside- shady forests and big, still lakes turning into sprawling green plains and low hills. It was so beautiful and clean and just :heart: I had a wonderful stay; you're very lucky to live in the area! I really wanted to pop down to Skane and go to Gotland but I couldn't fit it in my schedule... :broken_heart: I'll just have to go back to Sweden again some time. ;)


  • @Ariadne-Waters Haha yep and I can assure that she won't do that again :sweat_smile: but everything ended well anyways since Helene and Orabelle ended up as 2nd in the class in the show ^^

    Oh! that's nice! :D I don't live quite far from Mora just a little bit over one hour by car (longer if winter) and you are there ^^ you should plan an visit in march since it's one of world most famous skii races "Vasaloppet" with goal in Mora that are scheduled to march 1st next year ^^ Skåne is really beautiful too, have been both east and west coast there and also even in Ystad, Simrishamn etc - really beautiful! and if you get chance, take a drive through Österlen - truly gorgeous nature!

    Summer have been a really busy time for us here at LMEC, with several horses that have been retired recently and are soon-to-be ones so we have had an baby boom here litterally :heart_eyes: Both you @Callixta-Rosella an @Jade-Nguyen should have an BIG thank you for letting me borrow your studs and mares for this little bunch of gorgeous pixelbeans <3 so here they are! :heart_eyes: and also, if you're curious about their full pedigree etc, just click at X and the link will lead you to their respective mainsite profile :slight_smile:

    Micheeeeeelle!! <3 <3 yes I'm so happy with how these pics turned out, had an plan how I wanted it to look and tried to catch their personalities and I think that I nailed it to perfection :heart_eyes: Credit for the arena goes to Dimitri actually, since this one was an participation prize for us that entried in affiliate hunter show ^^ But I can assure you since I fell so hard in love in this one, that it will be a lot more pics taken in there ;)

    <3 you're not alone about that for sure, and huge thanks to you again for letting me borrow your gorgeous stud as sire for Nexus <3

    I've been battling with the forum for the past ten minutes to get your pictures to load, but they were worth the effort :heart_eyes: I still adore those barn pictures, Lily and Orabelle look so happy with themselves getting an extra snack! In all fairness, they deserves that extra snack for all their prettiness :kissing:
    And you know how much I love the new foalies; it always makes me happy to see my own pixels mentioned in pedigrees and I know the foals will do so well with you. Waikiki looks so elegant and fancy with all the white on her legs but Blazefury's baby will forever be my favourite out of this group :heartbeat:


  • Development Committee

    As you already know, I forgot to comment the last update :face_palm: but hey, better late than never right?! You know I loved the pictures anyway, our evil O' sisters :two_hearts: These pictures describe our ladies so well. I'm thrilled that they finally got to meet, and of course, they had to do it with a big surprise! What else could we expect from these two? :joy: And oh my little Belle with her mouth full of food. Such a classy lady right before her hunter show, haha! They sure are great partners in crime. I love them both!!
    Btw Belle is saying hi and says she is missing her sister already!

    And then on to the current update, I love all your new babies, I've already seen these but have to comment anyway! Nexus is just so elegant, I really wish I could make blacks like you. I love him. Wakikki is the sweetest mare, she is just so cute! And Wondra, where to start? She really is beautiful. Though all these are lovely, you know I'm weak for liver chestnuts with bold markings and fierce personality, so Bohemian is my favourite; along with Boyen of course, he's such a silly cute guy :heart: I really love your horses, they have so much personality! And your pictures and editing style are always so clean and perfect. :sparkles:



  • I literally cant pick a favourite!! My gosh girl how do you get your coats so lifelike!!! Kiki has stolen my heart completely. That shade of chestnut is just incredible! i just want to stroke her. Also, can we talk about this arena!!!! Legit one hell of a stunning piece of architecture! Amazing pictures! Give me more :)



  • Looove love Backstreet, he looks like a cow rolling :cow: But in a good way :rofl:

    <3 and I can't thank you enough for letting me borrow your horses to make these breeding pairs, just look how well it ended :heart_eyes: Can't really wait to see how it goes for them all when they're starting their careers and I'm sure that they will do amazing with these gorgeous lineages they have :heart_eyes: and as spoke of competitions, even if both houdini girls broke out from their stalls, Belle did it really well in the hunter show so she must have gotten some extra boost in that food she was eating :sweat_smile:

    I can tell you that Amy was NOT happy when she opened the barn door and found these two sisters in crime with their heads deep in the food xD especially when Belle was already prepared for show and really clean and nice but now her head was full of food so the only thing to do is trying to clean her up and tell Helene what happened :joy: (give her some carrots from us, we're missing her too! <3 )

    and thanks a lot <3 I had so much fun with taking these pics and it will for sure be more soon in close future in this arena - it's SO beautiful in there! I do also have big hopes for this little gang and also are really thrilled for how it will go when it's breaking in time but at same time a little bit scared when it comes to Bohemian, remembering how her mom, grandma and grand grand mother was when we broke in them (yes all of them is red hairy flaxens :sweat_smile: ) so we're gonna be prepared for something similar with this fiercy lady xD

    Thank you! <3 I totally agree about the arena, it's really breathtaking and gorgeous! I'm so happy to get an part of this so I can use it for my horses and take gorgeous pics in there :heart_eyes:

    Asking your friend to try to have an riding lesson with you would be an good idea, or? - it's just enough with taking an look at Helene to see how frustrated she is when she's trying hard to give instructions to Jessica that rides WPW Blue Millennium (breed by @Puck-Cantrell ) but the whole thing didn't go really well does it seems xD

    Thanks for visiting <3



  • what is the world it's amaziiing



  • oh my goodness Christina this is a lot to take in! :heart_eyes_cat: I've already scrolled through this update a couple times just ogling at this beautiful autumnal update! (Makes me wish it was getting colder over here, you guys in Europe are so lucky, it's still so hot here :sob: ) It's hard to comment on all of these, but I adore those pasture photos a lot. (that buckskin, Chandon? wow, what a heartbreaker)

    Giulietta looks faaancy, I love her big floaty movements, like a big dressage queen!

    And friend lessons never go as plan, I feel as half way through they always become chaotic messes filled with a bunch of playful teasing and absolutely no works get done :laughing: poor Blue Millenium, I'm sure they had an interesting lesson!

    Highlight is absolutely beautiful! Shes so unique for a dressage horse, there's not enough crazy-coloured horses in the dressage ring, I think Highlight will definitely turn head in the show ring! <3

    and wow, just wow, that world, :cry: now that's a b-day gift



  • Just that indoor arena takes me in love with your facilities!!!



  • The Scandinavian vibe your new facilities have is just perfect and gorgeous! Also I'd take Highlight home with me any time :smirk:


  • Development Committee

    You have no idea how hard it was to keep my mouth shut while making this world! I was originally planning to pretend it was for me, and then secretly show you lots of screenshot, but then I thought it was better to keep it a full secret and pretend like I didn't have anything for your birthday so I could give you an ultimate suprise! I think I pulled it off :angel: It makes me so happy to see you enjoy the world I made for you though! 😭❤️ It looks so unbelievable swedish with your facilities, just like I was aiming for! I'm so happy you love it.

    And all these gorgeous horses fit right in, I love how you used the space on places I had no idea would be good for pictures! I love all these pictures, but the one with the three boys is absolutely my favourite! There's just something about the colours(and no, I'm not talking about Chandon only 🤣) Chandon my little one, look how he's grown. He looks gorgeous in your game 😍 He looks so happy with the boys! And ofc it's nothing new that I love all your horses, but Highlight? She is amazing. I'm so excxited to see how she'll be doing on the dressage arena! These pictures are absolutely beautiful, I'm just so happy you have moved to Sweden where your stables clearly belong🥰


  • PR Committee

    Diana did such an amazing job on your world; it has that real Scandinavian touch, and the big pastures will be perfect for all your horses. The white fences everywhere really add a splash of colour and make the place look huge. And I'm glad that there's room for you to expand as you continue hoarding ;)
