I'm skipping a lot between these two posts so may have to backtrack in my next post but first wanted to introduce the two newest members of the AF team. While visiting my family in the Okanagan for my brothers wedding, I went to the farm that I got Uno, Gogo and several others from to see if they had any horses for sale. I ended up with two half brothers to Gogo, one on the dams side and one on the sire side. The chestnut above (King Katz) is by Gogo's sire, Mass Market, and the bay (Eagle Eyes) is out of Gogo's dam, Dancing Eyes, who is Uno's sister. It will be fun to bring them along and see if they have any of Gogo's talent. So far, they both have the movement and temperament so fingers crossed they like to jump! Katz has gone straight into training with Allie and has been a perfect gentleman under saddle after a year off, while Eli is just three and has been at the track all winter so will have some time in the field to grow up and just be a horse. Next post will include a progress report on Katz and a brief recap of everything that's happened from May til July!
