Hi guys!
I haven't written here for a while but there's not much to write because of the Equine Influenza that is causing all sorts of restricions on horses. There have been no endurance rides for a few months now and the last ride of the season was supposed to be last weekend but becuase of the flu. . . . . cancelled.
We can't even ride outside the front gate. We can ride around the paddock but after a few days of going around in circles the horses had a few objections to say the least so now now they are all turned out for the off season resting before the season starts again next year and hopefully by then the horse flu will have run it's coarse and the restrictins are lifted.

The only news i really have is that my mare Breeze is in foal agian to the same stallion (Zafire). YAY!!
The vet checked her out before we had her serviced and said she was fine to be put back into foal again and in a few weeks we are going to get her scanned to make she the foal is ok. We aren't taking any chances this time!!!!
Also Renae has been breaking in Zafire and i have watched her working with him a few times and he is sooo gorgeous! He moves so gracefully! I'l try to get some pics of him.

Anyway i'll try to udate again soon!

I just got the worst news!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( :(
Renae rang me and said she had bad news. . . . .i immediatly thought "Oh no, Bree has lost her foal!". But no Brees foal was fine (for now). Instead i got news that could harm both Bree AND her foal!

Bree has the Horse Flu!!!!!!!!!! NOOO! :(
You never think it will hapen to you but now it has! They don't know how it got to Renaes (where Bree is) because no one has reported it anywhre near Renaes area. We think someone else has it in the area but hasn't reported it becuase they don't want to be quaranteened. Grrrr!

Bree is healthy and should pull through without any problems and hopefuly the foal will be alright.

There is not much more we can do but look after the symptoms of the Flu and hope. And sterilise everything and everyone who goes near them to stop it spreading. We've just got to wait for it to o through.

:( :( :( :( :( :(

I have talked to Renae and she has told me that Bree is almost completely over the Flu now. Thank God!! :) We don't know if the flu has effected the foal yet but we will get her scanned to check on the foal! I'm taking no chances this time around!!
I'm so releived she pulled through the flu without any complications though!

I'll update again soon!
