    Foal
    Greetings from the south of France

    We live near Pau, where every year the only 4 star eventing competition in France takes place (although my prefered discipline is pure dressage) with our small herd of Friesians, Lusitanos and Merens - the working partners in our horse riding holidays business - to me taking people in a holiday mood out on horse trails does not feel like work AT ALL!

    My friesian mare had her first foal last year - the young lady is now 18 months old and already stands at 15Hh. The mother is nearly 17Hh, the stallion was taller, so it looks as if she is going to be a big girl. I bred her with dressage in mind, and her paces look very promising. Impossible to be objective, she is absolutely gorgeous.

    The Merens are very sturdy ponies of the Pyrenees (the mountain range just south of us) they look a bit like high-density, compact Friesians, not so suitable to dressage but great for hacking out.

    We also have a working dog and to working cats in charge of general entertainment.
