A nice email from Jan and Paul
Just thought you might like a quick update on our Semper foal Mattie.
He’s done quite a lot of showing since his first one in May and is taking it all in his stride … we’ve been entering him in Yearling, Youngstock and Coloureds … he mainly wins the Yearling & Youngstock classes but overall, has never been placed less than a 3rd so far!!
He’s got a busy week coming up with Barton Equestrian Centre on the 31st, then Cartmel on the 3rd Aug, Garstang on the 6th and Barton again on the 7th (I’ve taken that week off!!!)
Paul and I went to the Great Yorkshire last week and were watching an In Hand Championship … a coloured came in and it was the spit of our Mattie, the way it moved, the way it looked, it’s facial expressions … I said to Paul, ‘that has got to be related!’ … turns out it was a 3 yr old Semper filly which had been imported from Germany and had won the coloured class earlier in the show, looks like the blood lines are producing many winners J”
