Hello Everyone- I hope you are surviving this crazy year and are happy and healthy!
I wanted to give an update on our 7 horses--- 3 are at our farm in Granville County, NC....Joey, our now gelding (he was a bit too studdy to keep as a stallion) sired by Time for A Diamond, has now been training for a year with Kirk Hall and is doing great! he loves working cows and has a great stop....we're selling him and here's a link to a video of his and Kirk's skills....
Kachina, our mare pictured on our website and the star of our breeding business, was just taken to Texas by Josiane Gauthier for breeding-- since we've had challenges getting her in foal, we decided to send her to the best experts...they have her under lights (to keep her cycling) and she'll be bred about February for an early 2022 foal sired by Gunnabeabigstar (pictured on our site too)....we're hoping to breed her more than once if all goes well-- first with an embryo tranfer but are focused on making sure she gets pregnant this time...with any luck, we'll have 2 foals in 2022!....we haven't have great luck so far with this whole breeding idea but we'll get there!
Our star and the primary focus of 2021 will be Farrah-- our coming 3 year old sired by Gunnatrasha...she's been in training with Josiane Gauthier since about April (she was a bit small so we had to wait awhile to start her)....but she's really doing great now and we have high hopes that Jo will be able to take her all the way to the Futurity finals next year! Here's a video Jo recently posted of her....she's a doll baby!
God bless you all this holiday season!
Debbie and Richard
