One day last week, we had a day of mutual introductions, did my dear friend Gail and I. She to my grand-daughter, Alannah, and I to her two new foals, birthed just eight days prior.
Gail and Peter run a boutique horse stud outside Cessnock. I have taken you there on other occasions, but with all the rain of late, the paddocks are looking splendiferous.
Let me introduce you.
On the left is Ondeeki's filly, Lexie (Lexington Avenue).
On the right is Misty's stallion, Monty (Montezuma's Gold).
I am to traipse along behind Gail at the next Easter Yearling Sales at the Inglis complex in Newmarket.
|Old age hath yet his honour and his toil;|
Death closes all: but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done.
