GOOD AS GOLD - OLDENBURG INSPECTION

Oldenburg Stallion License Approval for Gigi's Brother! 8-29-09
Good as Gold, received his Oldenburg North America Stallion License Approval.  This means he met the standards required to be considered worthy of breeding.  Congratulations to his breeder, Laura, at Goldhope Farm!
Good as Gold comes from the same dam and sire (and breeder) as our mare Good to be Queen or 'Gigi'. 

Vineyard Expands - May 24 & 25, 2009
200 new Syrah vines were just planted in the vineyard!  Vines are just like horses.......it takes years of patience bringing them along before you taste the fruit of your labor.  For now, all we have to look at is 8 inch-tall plants, BUT there are leaves budding out!

Steffen Peters rides Ravel - March 20, 21 2009
We attended the National Meeting of the KWPN -NA in Del Mar, California.  HIGHLIGHTS:  We watched Steffen Peters and Ravel perform their new Grand-Prix freestyle (the same one they won with at the Las Vegas World Cup a month later!), and we saw Idocus perform at age 19! (See article about Idocus in the USDF July 2009 issue).  What gorgeous horses and talented riders!!  We also learned a lot about how to score a horse using the 'keuring' linear scoring system,  and how to best match a stallion for your mare. 

Northern California Forest Fires - June 2008
Northern California has endured over 1000 fires in the last two weeks.  Luckily, the closest fire has been 40 miles away and contained.  All horses are safe, though we continue to water pastures 24/7, and we continue to have very smokey and 'thick' air.
