After a little calculation I estimate that, over the past 4 years, I have spent approximately 416 days caring for this ginger beast. That’s a big chunk of life but a level of devotion that has been rewarded every single step of the way. It still seems like yesterday that Deborah Deane drove to collect him in the snow. For a year’s project, he does seem to have a talent for sticking around, so here’s to the next 4 years, and whatever they may bring! Country Farm Stud Ltd.
Country Charity loving life today. She was an absolute saint. There are still times where you can tell she has literally no idea what to do… but jumps anyway. She’s got such a massive heart, and a jump to match. I think she’s going to be seriously exciting in the future. – Olivia Deane
I thought I’d give you an update on Country News Flash (Henry) who turned 7 at the end of May. He is truly amazing and he has come on in leaps and bounds since I decided to get cracking with him jumping. I have finally found the courage to get jumping and he has took every time, he is so trusting with me and very brave. I have taken him on several camps and been jumping with Tracey Newman and Maxine Jagger. I am planning on doing his first BE event soon and he recently got fourth at search for a star qualifier. I have attached some photos of him he looks ace.Thank you so much for breeding me such an ace little man.
Dear Country Farm Stud- I thought you might be interested in seeing a picture of Country Lone Ranger’s foals all grown up – his name is Martinside Driftwood and was born on March 12 2004 to a mare called Standen Finola. His stable name is Hoolie, he is now 5 and doing prelim dressage and some jumping. I’ve had him for over a year now and he is lovely to ride and really tries to get thing right – he is a character – a cheeky monkey!!! – Sarah Gibbs
Our five year old mare by Country Lone Ranger has Qualified at Catton Park on Saturday for the young event horse championships at Osberton. Delighted with her !
