2014 Foals - 23 May 2014

A walk around the new foals yesterday with our friends Judy and Max.  Thanks to Max for the photos.

Alférez - 19 May 2014

Bandera’s colt foal has been given the name Alférez.

Alférez means ensign in Spanish this is a nod to Bandera  which means flag in Spanish.

According to wikipidea:
In medieval Iberia, an alférez was a high-ranking official in the household of a king or magnate. The term is derived from the Arabic “al-fāris”, meaning “horseman” or “cavalier”.

Bandera had a colt foal this morning. He is bay now but who knows what colour he will end up. He was born in the field but is now tucked up in stable with a straw bed.


Colt Foal for Banderra - 06 May 2011

Bandera had a colt foal on the 5th May. We have named him Bartilo. He has a dorsal stripe so he might be dun but will probably go grey. He will be registered as a PRE.




Reyes has loading practice - 20 Oct 2010

As Reyes will be off soon, we have been doing some loading practice. The 1st day he had a good look but could not be persuaded to go up the ramp. The 2nd day we coaxed him up by lifting his foot on the ramp. The 3rd day he was leading in behind his mum, no trouble.

We parked the lorry facing downhill as our lorry has a steep ramp.


Reyes has his feet inspected. - 15 Sep 2010

Reyes had his feet trimmed by the farrier last week. He was a bit of pickle and needed holding to keep him still.

We have done a bit more training, picking his feet up daily and as you can see he is now very relaxed about the whole thing.
