When I can schedule Leslie Threlkeld to drive in all the way from North Carolina for a photo shoot, I get excited and anticipate the day I hear her car drive down the gravel road. That means I bathe the model the day before, braid, and get all the stuff ready to make a horse perk up those unpredictable ears!
At The Grande (Georgio) didn’t have the best of weather, as the temperature was in the 30’s and a nice gusty wind froze our fingers and poor Georgio’s tush. But I have to admit, for a 4 year old who finished his last race in October, he is one cool dude.
The photos are lovely and display his excellent form and spirit. They’re posted on the HORSES FOR SALE page.
A heartfelt congratulations goes to Kirstin Murphy of Longview Farm in Alabama on the purchase of Prince Neff. Kirstin comes from ‘Equestrian Royalty’ (google Dennis Murphy), and she plans on campaigning Eddie in the Retired Racehorse Project 2018.
Thoroughbreds are incredible athletes who are multi-talented. More Cowbell’s first career began at the racetrack, then eventually found himself competing in Horse Trials. 7 years later together, both ‘Benny’ and Matti Burns found their true passion in the Jumper world.
Congratulations to former LKF Thoroughbred on fantastic placings during the Tryon International Fall CS15 competition. 1st, 2nd for speed rounds and 9th in the Jumper Classic. Their weekend finished as Reserve Champions in the High Adult Jumpers overall.
Indeed there is something to be said about a tall, dark and handsome gentleman. Today marks 30 days since Prince Neff’s last winning race. As he has been adjusting to his new career away from the track, he has had me in deep thought. Many words come to mind to try to describe him such as, ‘soulful’, ‘wise’, ‘gentlemanly’….and many more.
4 years ago I was in the trainer’s box when through the morning sun, I hear a horse coming up from my right. Everyone around me were chattering and catching up on news, but I didn’t say a word. My eyes were glued on this horse as he floated past.
Since that morning, I’ve followed Prince Neff’s successful career and always made not-so-subtle hints that I was in love and to be the first in line when it was time to put him into a new career.
Prince Neff (barn name Eddie) oozes class, intelligence and quiet confidence. A stable favorite of his trainer, he was well looked after and it shows. For more information go to the HORSES FOR SALE page.
First time out at Training Level in a large division, Louis started off in an excellent position, winning the Dressage with a score of 26. A couple greenie rails on turf and making up for it on a big cross country course designed by John Williams. Lou finished in 4th with a double clear and was AGAIN the Thoroughbred Incentive Program winner for all Training divisions.
New Thoroughbreds will be arriving at the farm. Many of you were on a wait list and missed out on Handsome Jake. But if you contact me now I can assist in what you’re looking to purchase.
