Star Mare Jenni Road by Grand Slam and Nala offered for sale: We are offering 2 very special mares for sale. Jenni has been the love of my life since the day she hit the ground. But she has come up with a grade 3 uterus and will be very difficult to breed. I can't afford to have around mares that are hard to breed. If she doesn't sell by breeding time next year, we will give it the college try again with fresh semen. Nala looks to be in good breeding health, but did not take this year. We are offering her again for sale until breeding season starts. See our sales page for further details. 9/22/00

Another great trip to Holland and the Paardendagen: After being gone in Europe for 3.5 weeks, you can imagine there is some catching up to do when I got home. Miloma's breed shows have been sandwiching my trip and keeping me busy, but I've never had so much fun! I really enjoyed the Paardendagen (Horse Days) in Holland. It is such a great event for breeders to see what is crossing successfully. I got to see the IAN trophy (4,5 & 6 year old jumping) and PAVO Cup (4 & 5 year old) finals, along with the Queen 3 year old mare of Holland, and the top foal of Holland. I also got to attend the prestigous Borculo auction. I have a few articles to write for the Warmblood Magazine, so stay tuned! 9/22/00

If you buy a horse, we will deduct this money from our small nominal flat finders fee of $500. We can arrange import of these horses for you or take you to Holland. Airfare is very cheap right now. This video has some very nice mares, foals and geldings for sale in Holland. These are TOP bloodlines. Email me if you'd like some help finding horses in Holland. We work directly with the breeders and avoid the high fees of an agent. 9/22/00
