Cairo

No, not the city, it's Kath's new addition. After buying Mimi fell through (see older posts), Kath was looking for another lovely brood mare, and here she is. She has a foal at foot and one on the way to a rather super sport horse.

She has an injury which is why Kath has her as a brood mare. She's far to lovely to be wasted. Hopefully she will recover enough to hack out, but it's unlikely that she will ever be able to compete.

Meanwhile, Oliver is growing like a little mushroom. I'll try to get new photos of him this week.

Lovely mare - congratulations!

Very nice, although if I were picky I would want to see her withers higher than her croup. (I've had too many downhill horses in my life; my next one will be built uphill!)

Hmm, I don't remember her looking "downhill" in the flesh! Will have to look properly next time. I'm sure Kath knows what she was looking for though.

OH! her belly makes me uncomfortable looking at it! Lovely mare!

I know, she's a big on the huge side here!

Kath says don't worry Michelle, Cairo might be a little downhill, but she's confident that the foals she has planned will be absolute corkers!
