A few photos from our Oldenburg Verband inspection

Well, it was a very strange year for us. Our 28th inspection from the Oldenburg Verband .... and only TWO foals to present!

But they are two very NICE foals! Fillies both, HEARTSONG MOON the black filly by HOHENSTEIN out of homebred FINALE (Furst Heinrich out of Reina H) and HONALEIGH the liver chestnut filly by BELISSIMO M out of HEIDE VON BRANDENBURG , aka "Stars" (Quaterback - Sandro Hit)

Both fillies were premium awarded. That day, Honaleigh really shined, was in perfect balance in her growth stage, and was also given the Foal of Distinction ribbon and named best foal of the day.
We had a lovely, albeit hot, day. There were 13 foals presented and 6 received premium. The quality was very good. Antonio, my right hand for 29 years (!) now, ran without complaint in the heat
