Adrienne came to visit us, ride and of course, most importantly, spend time with Gaia do Summerwind, her 8 month old filly. FIRE in Pagosa Springs gets all of our attention! While we are not threatened, it’s still burning and now over 100,000 acres. Fidalgo do Summerwind – First time with a saddle in June! Only 2 years old, he won’t be started under saddle for another year. Photo from owner, Lynn Boone, NC. Eoghan (Owen) is loving the herding practice he gets. The horses don’t seem to care. So far everyone has been good! One of our H babies – Hallelujah in NC. This little filly is doing great! The perfect combination of beauty, gait and athleticism! Photo from Jeff and Michelle Bosley, SW Future Foal @ Lumberbridge. Koyote Libertas – we love the mud! It means it started raining here and we really really need it! Hawke do Summerwind, Ximoio de Maripa’s first foal in the US using imported frozen semen. We just love this sweet guy! I tried a new routine training from horseback. So far, it is working out. I have become the human horse walker in a sense. Adrienne and Gaia spent lots of time together. What a good girl this filly is! She is PERFECT! We had a short trip to Santa Fe, one of our favorite cities! Marion sends her MM gelding working cattle in WY. Great photo! We imported Violeiro de Itajoana from Brasil. For anyone who follows bloodlines, he is the son of Festa AJ, so a half-brother to Laio de Maripa. La Paz JIvago x Azenha de Maripa. Frozen embryo transfer. Right before weaning, mother and daughter, Brasilia and Gaia do Summerwind. Photo credit Kat Carlisle. Our flower gardens are gorgeous this year! And timed to bloom all summer and fall too. Azenha and Hawke in the cedars here in Pagosa. Great to see the horses enjoy the space here in CO. Owner Laurie Klassen and Beethoven do Summerwind in Canada. An endurance LD ride and a promotional photo shoot in June. He’s so dappled!!!
