New friend for Tigger

Posted by greenfieldsequestrian on October 6, 2009 at 10:35 PM Comments comments (2)

Friday 2 October 09


A friend was looking for a retirement home for her beloved gelding Jackson and I needed a new friend for Tigger my older TB gelding.


Tig lost his best buddy Buzz (27 yr old TB) about 18 months ago and still looks for him. Its heartbreaking and because he doesn't  like to paddock alone he has been in with Nemo. They are ok together but Tig gets a bit fed up with being chased and won't let nippy Nemo groom him. Nemo is young, ...

Spring Cleaning - Done!

Back at work now after two lovely weeks off.


We managed to get the stable floor concreted thanks to the invaluable help from a friend - cheers Adrian! Will put photos up soon.


Also got two miniature Crab apple trees and four camelleia shrubs for the garden. Martin and another friend Mark pulled an old shed down and cleaned up all the mess so the place is looking very smart for spring.


Martin is building a BBQ seat...

We are on holiday this week to get home and horse spring cleaning done. The weather is perfect and we are getting a lot done  :D


The farrier came this morning and everyone was very well behaved. The foals were fascinated with the farriers little Jack Russell dog.


After the farrier I wormed everyone and thanks to being ever nosey and ever curious about things they can pick up  the foals took the wormer no problems at all. Then we got to wor...

Baby steps...

Well I got brave on Saturday and put Tigger into a new paddock and then put the mares and their 7 month old foals in with him. After an initial gallop around, lead by Annie of course, everyone settled down to eat. Tig galloped like a spring chicken, must remind him he is 22!


The foals are fascinated by Tig and Chico was the first one to go and say hi. Tig has never seen foals before these two and has a real problem with little ponies, especially minis, but he is fine with t...

Success at Winter Dressage Series 09

My young horse Nemo finished his first ever outing on a high note thanks once again to the skill and experience of his rider Leia! :D

Nemo got placed first and third at the last day of the Te Marua Winter Dressage Series on Sunday. So overall he has achieved two firsts, two seconds and two third placings for the series. Enough to be Reserve Champion of his class, although for some reason RC sashes were not awarded this year??

This was his first ever outing and he has gained i...

Waiting on advertising material to come from Fuller Fillies and need to figure out how to link to Facebook to show the Vollrath Lessing foals that we have for sale.


The foals are six months old now and ready for in-hand training. They are yet to be weaned but are ready for something to keep them occupied.


Tigger (22 yr old TB) will be joining the mares and foals in the paddock shortly as he will be "nana" to them once they are weaned.
