Introducing Cerefin

Deacons Gate Shires first filly – arriving unexpectedly 8 days early, Tuesday 15/11/11 5.36pm As it happened I was actually at home struggling to get over a stinking migraine that was refusing to budge and as you do when not feeling the best, I was staging the chores for the evening feeds in order to get them all done and keep my head from exploding. So I had started with the big girls, Duchess and Pearl who eagerly cantered toward their bins awaiting their feeds… all good, Duchess despite twitching and stamping in an alarming manner, woofed down everything, licked the dish clean (nothing...

Agony over – She’s not pregnant!

Agony over – She’s not pregnant!

Well to put the Clydesdale and Heavy Horse Field Days attendance into a short paragraph our lot did us proud, they looked amazing and for the most part behaved well. Pearl took out the Supreme Senior Shire and Rebel took out the Supreme Junior. Sadly due to excitement and lack of training Salazar was retired from the event but if he’d been better prepared he would have won I am sure. But next year we will have to see…. if there is a next year of course. Still the BIG question was was Pearl pregnant, she looked so good and usually this is how she presents when pregnant and many asked when...

April already

Thanks for all your emails and encouragement over these past months. It's been a struggle after the flooding to get back into any normality. We've both been working long hours and spend the majority of our weekend time contending with multiple temporary repairs whilst we wait on the insurance decision on our policy. We've also been spiked by an electrical surge which fried both of our computers and various appliances a week after the floods, including all the email traffic creating a void not knowing what needed follow up or not. The recovery of the lost data is apparently possible ($2200) but we simply...

And the new year commeth

Tragedy and devastation plagues most of QLD with NSW and VIC set to also contend with the flooding waters heading their way. The raging inland Tsunami that erupted out of Toowoomba and laid waste to Grantham, transformed picturesque creeks and valleys into gouged raw ravines then headed east, quietly engulfing Ipswich and Brisbane to the rafters. Whole properties destroyed, lives lost, livestock and beloved horses gone leaving behind a slick fetid slime and unmentionable debris covering everything. The long task now ahead will take months, maybe years to clean and return to any normality or routine....
