A sad farewell to my property

So it's official and I'm finally getting a minute to let people know that I am relocating the entire property. Due to very tight timeframes, please excuse my lack of communication in the meantime. This video is to say 'Thank you' to all of you who have been part of the journey.

Finally, a moment to share what actually happened.

Vale ESB Irish Nimbus

He had many roles and became such a wonderful friend to so many people and will be greatly missed. Thank you buddy for your help, loyalty, reliability and companionship. I hope you RIP and will be forever grazing the 'long acre' oxo

How time flies ...

... where does time go? Life is so crazy that trying to keep up with a regular blog is very obviously too hard! So, after another successful foaling season and seven more lovely ESB babies, I turned my attention back to competing. I was still struggling to get my Troopie (Landcruiser) sorted so that I had a proper towing vehicle. The local 4x4 business had taken it in August to replace the engine and I had paid them $6,000 but it still wasn't fixed. After much grief in trying to find a solution I have unfortunately had to place the matter with my solicitor.

In the meantime, I purchased 'Bessie' (now known as Truck Junior or TJ) and decided to restore her so that I could get the horses back on the road. Little did I know what I was taking on! Even with the help of true and trusted friends, it has taken me over two and a half months, working full time on her to bring her up to speed.
