I am late to blog as I have been trying to catch up on everything. We had a good outing with the horses at Fair Hill, both Decorated and R Star were very good in the Prelims on Friday and Saturday with R Star being second after dressage, and then having 1 time fault to fall to 3rd behind Decorated who jumped a clean round and moved up to second.
On Sunday, I was trying a new bridle on Hope, a hackamore and just did not have her attention early on and had a silly runout at the second when she was caught looking at the 2nd training fence on the way to the Prelim fence...oh well...she jumped all the hard stuff well and I have to remember she has just been eventing a year and this is her second Prelim.
Decorated was fantastic and roared to a double clean and a 2nd place finish...someone needs to snatch him up quick as I am having way too much fun!
The training horses were also good as Ballinlaugh Ice jumped a double clear to finish 7th and her stablemate Lazer Lavender had one show jump down to finish just out of the ribbons.
Nevaeh who had another good dressage and show jump did not run cross country as it was pouring rain and the footing had deteriorated and we decided to save her for another day.
The big news though is that Rock Star delivered a beautiful colt on Sunday at 1:30 AM. Grove of Stars or Grover, is big and healthy and bouncing around. It has been a while since we have had a colt and he is reminding us daily that they are a little different than little fillies!
We hope you enjoy his video, there will be more to come...http://www.csquarefarm.com/grove-of-stars/
Good luck to all of our friends at Rolex this weekend, stay safe,
