Hello :-)

Well Ive finally gotten around to making a blog. I guess I will introduce ourselves and our animals. We live in Nelson and have 4 fantastic kids - Liam(9), Kate(7), Blake(5) and Jade (3).
We have 3 horses - Boom (Boomtown Digger) who is my once in a lifetime horse:

He is a multi-champion in the SB ring and has also done very well in CTR's. He is a real dude, more human than horse and great for keeping young horses in line.

Next is Jess (Punga Jess) who is a Section A welshie currently ridden in Lead rein by our daughter Kate, she is also a Multi Champion. She is a real family pony and all 4 kids ride her at home. Kate will be venturing into the first ridden ring with her from June onwards, and then Jade and Blake will be sharing her in Lead Rein also, so she will be a busy pony. Kate is also starting dressage with her and recently had their first competition, coming 4th against all adults.

And finally is Bluey (Windsor Little Englishe Man) who is our baby. He is a NZ riding pony and turned 2 in November. He has only been lightly shown inhand but has been very successful. He took out Champion Youngstock and Supreme Pony at Motueka A & P in December, Champion Youngstock and reserve Grand Champion at the Arab/welsh show in January and reserve Champ Gelding at the Nelson H & P breeders show in Feb. He is a cheeky little so and so, and gives us many laughs. He will be broken in around this time next year, and will be Kates next pony.

We also have a small flock of Suffolk Sheep who keep me busy, wouldnt be without them though

And we have 3 English Pointers, they are Strika (13), Emma (13) and Brenna (10). Needless to say because of their age they have all slown down somewhat and are now just couch potatoes. Strika (NZ Ch Pinerock Strike A Lite) was a very good show dog in his day and took us the length of the country competing. We will be getting a new puppy shortly.
Anyway thats about it for this morning :-)
