And all before 9am!

After several sleepless nights with alarms set 2 hourly and less, Tessie ( posh name On High) has given birth to a bouncing baby boy.

This charming colt foal showed attitude and plenty of character when he graced us with his presence on a frosty Saturday morning at 1.48am. I was lucky enough to see him into this world, and help his mum dry him off. 

In this photo he is just 7 Minutes old

His sire is Royaldik a fabulous bay Oldenburg sports horse.  See http://www.thestallioncompany.com/stallion_detail.php?stallion=2007031

Tessie is second generation home bred by Primitive Rising. Her Dam was On Song, Jolyse's Bronze medal event ride in Pratoni del Vivaro Rome. Her Grand dam was Augermist who completed Badminton and jumped clear around Burghley 4* three times with me. 

Tessie herself has competed at 2* event level and  is Head Stud book graded with Sport Horse of Great Britain. This year she is 20 years young!


No sooner had I drifted to sleep than Richard phoned to say we had a horse 'stuck' in the field. I thought I was hearing things! But sure enough, Winnie a pretty yearling, was well and truly wedged with legs in the air,  in a self made sand pit!

-Talk about "digging yourself into a hole" !

Armed with shovels, Katherine and Richard dug down to flatten one of her 'walls'  in an effort to prize her out.

 Whereby the sandy and bemused youngster sprung to her feet unharmed, living up to her show name "On a Winner"
