May 24th, 2019

We have been a little swamped with the collection schedule and breeding six mares on the farm in the last 10 days. 

Steinway (Schwarzenegger/Brentano II/Imperator) is growing like a weed. He has such a fun, inquisitive personality.  He is a gem, had his introduction to electric fencing this morning and figured it out in no time.  New photos of him coming soon.  

Deci is now day 63.  Hopefully puppies in the next 48 hours, she looks ready.  

Bred Santerina to Arrian, Rosslyn to Schwarzie, and Rimini to Schwarzie.  

Love getting the updates from our mare owners of successful preg checks from breeding to the stallions. 


May 20th, 2019

Deci is making progress, now day 59.  Can't wait to see the match of her and Ferro realized. 

So far have bred three mares: Rara Avia to Dauphin, SPS Brentacia to Arrian, and Rumor to Bernay.  Fingers crossed for preg checks in a couple of weeks.  Next to be bred: Rimini and Rosslyn to Schwarzie, and Santerina to Arrian.  May try an ET for one of these breedings, we shall see.

There are a couple spaces left for mare management here at the farm this season. If interested touch base to book your spot.  

Bellevue and Bellmora are now in training with Pearl MacGregor.  Look forward to watching their progress. 


May 14th, 2019

Lots of things on the go.
We were able to see our little hooligan yesterday.  We will be having a boy in October.

Deci is nearing the finish line.  She had an xray at day 52 that showed 9-11 puppies in there.  Wahoo!!  Is looking like an expected arrival of May 24th or so.  These puppies will be available to very active homes, preference given to those that will work them (Schutzhund, obedience, rally, tracking, agility, etc).  If interested, please email me at Hanselpacker@hotmail.com

I bred Rara Avis to Dauphin, fingers crossed.  Next on the breeding lists are Rimini to Schwarzie, and Santerina to Arrian.  



May 2nd, 2019

He has a name, going with Steinway (Schwarzenegger/Brentano II/Imperator).  (Grand pianos that are beautiful and functional).  This lovely boy will be available for sale, look forward to snapping more pictures over the next few days.

Deci is starting to show, she looks lovely and round.  We are so looking forward to puppies the end of the month.  Planning to have her x-rayed a few days before whelping to get a head count on how many puppies to expect. 

Planning to start breeding the open mares on their next cycles this month.    
Rumor to Schwarzenegger
Rosslyn to Schwarzenegger
Rara Avis to Dauphin via ET and then to carry. 
Brentacia to Rotspon or Arrian on her 30 day heat. 



May 1st, 2019

This beautiful colt arrived on April 30th at 2:30am. Pedigree: Schwarzenegger/Brentano II/Imperator.  Still working on a name, but it needs to start with an S.  




April 28th, 2019

Maria and I are waiting patiently for Brentacia to foal.  She is 332 days now and all systems just about ready to go.  Excited on the prospect of Schwarzenegger and Brentacia complimenting each other.  

Some exciting news coming on one of the sale prospects, would be a fantastic home.  

The open mares are starting to cycle well.  At this point just keeping records and waiting, the cold wet spring has given pause for breeding just yet.  Really enjoying getting to know the 3 new mares, lovely personalities and really fun planning out hypothetical crosses.




April 23rd, 2019

A huge thank you to Marefield Meadows for the lease on these three beautiful mares.
They arrived safely from VA today and are settling in. Left to right:
Rara Avis (Rienzi/Wenzel I/Domingo), Rumor (Ruiz Soler/Donnerhall/Feiner Stern), and Rosslyn (Rienzi/Donnerhall/Feiner Stern).
Also a thank you to Symes Transport for doing a great job hauling the mares and stallions up from VA over the last three weeks.  Was a pile of driving. 










April 22nd, 2019

The classic beauty Rienzi (Raphael/Bolero/Lombard) has settled in well to the stallion barn.  He is such a wonderful dual-purpose producer.  The stallion barn feels like a roster of boys to compliment all kinds of different mare bases.   He is available with proven frozen at 600$ per dose plus tax.  Doses are packed in 4 and 5 straw doses.  Dry shipper available for rental.  Limited quantity, touch base today to order your breedings.

April 19th, 2019

It is looking promising for puppies in late May.  For those following along on Deci, I will have more information coming on the Doberman page over the next few days.

Lucky to have Maria Richards on the team, she joined us April 8th and has been a great addition to the farm, has freed me up to get caught up on the paper and computer work.

SPS Brentacia is making progress, she is at day 323 today.   Highly looking forward to meeting her Schwarzenegger foal, it will be the only Schwarzie foal for us this season. Hopefully in the next week or so.

Three new broodmares will be joining the farm on breeding lease from Marefield Meadows, they should arrive early next week with Chuckie Symes Transport.  


April 17th, 2019

Feel very fortunate to have two stallions in the barn that are on the Top Lists for the Hanoverian Verband.

Schwarzenegger on the top list of Jumper producers and Dauphin on the top list for producing Type.  2019 Hanoverian Yearbook.

These lists are important to showcase what older stallions are producing by evaluating daughters during inspection and their mare performance tests. It gives a tip to the breeders of the positive attributes these stallions are reliably passing on.

Including Schwarzenegger and Dauphin, there are less then 5 stallions that stand with fresh in North America on those lists.

Schwarzenegger was bred by Axel and Martina Windeler and is owned by Aileron Stables. Dauphin is bred and owned by Marefield Meadows, and leased for breeding to Aileron Stables.

Hoping for many more seasons with these wonderful producers.




April 12th,

Excited to offer the elite Hanoverian stallion Arrian to Canadian breeders for Marefield Meadows.   He has settled in well and has fantastic semen.  
Available to a limited number of mares.  Special introductory rate of 1,500$ LFG, collection not included. 





April 3rd, 2019

I am behind in the news department lol.

Let's see....

Jason and I are excited to be adding a human addition this coming October.  Things will be a little different no doubt.

We had some fun renovations done to the house over a period of 6 weeks, that is not enjoyable to live in but nice to have once done. 

Deci was bred on March 27th, fingers crossed for gorgeous Doberman puppies the end of May.  

We had a wonderful AGM for the Eastern Hanoverian Breeders club of Canada here on PEI March 30th and 31st.

Two new exciting arrivals landed safely at Aileron Stables April 2nd.  More to come on that shortly.

First collection of the season went out the door today despite the weather.  Dauphin was the lucky fellow. 

Our full-time employee will be joining us in less than a week.  Look forward to working together. 

Three broodmares will be joining the farm near the end of the month.  Some very neat breeding, and lots of ideas in the works. 

SPS Brentacia is slowly making progress and looking forward to meeting her Schwarzenegger foal the end of April.

That is it for now, but as you guessed...we aren't bored lol.


February 27th, 2019

Dauphin's beautiful dam, SPS Fabia.  Hard to go wrong with the stunning type and correctness this mare exemplifies.
Big thank you to Marefield Meadows for access to these lovely photos.

January 31st, 2019

All recovered from a great adventure from Jan 14th-26th. Jason and I took Day Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall) down to his new home in Florida to Anna Toomey, Dr. Christine Stec, and Dr. Brian Ausman. Lucky Day Dreamer joins his big brother Deuce (Dancier/Weltruhm/Donnerhall). Look forward to watching he and Anna dance in the dressage ring 🙂
Fortunate to have a wonderful friend near the US border to give us a break and a rest for our little traveller.
It was a blast and covered a lot of ground.
21 stops, 8,356 kms, lovely people, beautiful horses, and fantastic Dobermans. My favourite stores...Tractor Supply, Dover, IKEA, and Costco lol. The truck hauled like a machine, I complimented it often as we filled it with finds along the way.

What a pleasure to spend time at Marefield Meadows; amazing people, incredibly generous with their hospitality and support. The books, omg the books, so excited to go cover to cover.

We were very fortunate to tour some lovely breeding farms: Westphalians for USA LLC, Willow Hill Equestrian, Hilton Farms, Elevage Diabolo ZLD, and Marefield Meadows. Great setups and such happy horses.

The beautiful Dobermans and German Shepherds we met, wowsers. Von Schwarz Dobermans is a source of excellent dogs and information, fantastic owner. Excited for a match for Deci in the spring.

As the common joke goes, I tend to be “efficient” when I travel and my family was ready for the 20 minute special Lol. (Was at least 6 hours this time). Happy to see our brothers and their families, and close friends. Also a treasure to meet up with my wonderful Aunt Lois.

So lucky to have Jason, excellent co-pilot, lots of laughs, and our brains going full tilt.

Big thank you to our friends at home that took care of the farm during some questionable weather, very appreciated!!

January 5th, 2019

Happy New Year all. 

Heading to Florida with Day Dreamer the middle of the month.  For American buyers looking at Aileron horses, this is a shipping opportunity.  I have one empty boxstall all the way down. 



December 29th, 2018

The Dream team have sold :))

Dark Dreamer is heading to Ontario to a lovely breeding and riding home, and Day Dreamer is heading to Florida to a lovely dressage home. 
Congratulations to both homes, I look forward to following the progress.  Can't wait to meet the third full-sibling this summer. 

Have acquired a couple doses of exciting stallions for the tank, nice to have lots of diversity for the mare base.  






December 20th, 2018

Couple exciting things in the works, fingers crossed :)

Legato (Londonderry/Dauphin/Weltmeyer) traveled to his new home in Wolfville, NS this past week.  He is a lucky colt to have many friends and the perfect pasture nanny. Photo Credit: Bev Meilleur. 

Happy to welcome Siskel (Schwarzenegger/Weltruhm/Donnerhall) home from training with Michelle DeGarie in NB.  She did a fabulous job with him over the last year. 





November 2nd, 2018

Said Goodbye to the magnificent mare SPS Fenjala (Fabriano/Prince Orac xx/Adsatz) today.  Was very lucky to have owned her for a couple of years.  





October 15th, 2018


Early Bird discounts are in-effect for the stallions!!! 400$ off any contracts completed on November 1st, 2018.

There are multiple updates throughout the site, enjoy perusing all the new photos :)


September 30th, 2018

Has been a whirlwind.  Enjoyed a pretty spectacular 9 day trip to Germany for a beautiful wedding of the perfect couple :))  We (Virginia, Lisa P, and Max) took the opportunity to travel and see some lovely horses/country, take in some amazing food, enjoy a vibrant atmosphere, and have some crazy laughs that I will treasure.   Omg, sometimes I really have to acknowledge how incredibly fortunate I am to have a wonderful circle, my health, a beautiful little farm in the country with content horses and Dobermans.  Big thank you to friends Amanda, Calloway, Willow, and Jason for keeping all the critters happy.

The results are in from the inspection … Legato and Soldato were on the list of 19 foals in Canada that received a Gold Medal Foal award, distinguishing them as an overall 8.0 or above.   Even more exciting is Soldato is a recipient of the Albert Kley Top Ten Award, as one of the top Ten foals inspected in Canada for 2018.  So happy for the owners of both Legato and Soldato.  

I will be traveling to Maine to connect shippers over the next 6 weeks, if you are shopping from the US... let's get this all planned before the snow starts to fly. 


September 12th, 2018

Had a wonderful inspection on September 1st and 2nd.  Santerina scored an overall 7.0 and was entered in the Main Studbook of the Hanoverian Verband. She is for sale in-foal to Dauphin for 2019.

 The foals showed well and both Legato (Londonderry/Dauphin/Weltmeyer) sold to Nancy Murray and Soldato (Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon) sold to Colleen Hughes and Family made it to the final ring and received a Gold Medal Foal award.    I was impressed with both Day Dreamer and Dyneema with how they strutted their stuff, good friendly, amateur friendly youngsters.  Big thank you to everyone that pitched in to make the inspection a success.  It could not be done without all the help. 

Big congratulations to the Hughes Family on the purchase of Soldato (formerly Sentinel).  

I have canceled the home phone, and will just be using my cell phone now: 902-940-7516.

New video of Bellevue and Bellmora below. 












August 18th, 2018

Has been a crazy month :))

Had a wonderful trip to Alberta/British Columbia August 3rd-13th.  Spent a week exploring beautiful country with my boyfriend, Jason Acorn.  On Saturday, August 11th, I had an amazing experience completing the Emperor's Challenge 1/2 marathon over top Mount Babcock in Tumbler Ridge, BC.  Had been preparing for it for 7 1/2 months here on PEI, it was gruelling/slow/taxing and a very fulfilling first race.  I finished in a time of 2:44:35 and ranked 286 out of 857 finishers of the 1,100 entries.   Next hurdle is the PEI full marathon October 14th (Brackley to Charlottetown).
I am enjoying having less horses on the farm so I can a) give each horse here more individual attention and b) take time for me to not be completely immersed.  
Has been an enlightening summer and I am extremely fortunate to have had Willow M'Cloud working here full-time.  She has done an exceptional job and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for this indominable generous spirit.  Any vet clinic that lands her will be very very lucky.

Excited for Swan Song (Schwarzenegger/World Cup IV/Matcho AA) she has been sold to Samantha Kidd of North Carolina.  She will head out to the US in the next couple of weeks.  Big congratulations!!

We are gearing down getting ready for the Hanoverian Inspection that will be September 1st and 2nd at the Crapaud Agriplex.  Spectators are most welcome.  Come out and see Hanoverians from NB, NS, and PEI strut their stuff in front of the Hanoverian Verband judges.   

New Video of Bellevue undersaddle coming shortly. 

Happy to announce SPS Wonderful Dream is confirmed back in-foal to Dauphin (lol second time this year).  So far 5 confirmed and hoping for one more, for a total of 6 for 2019. 

Big trip to Germany planned for late September for Lisa Pfister's wedding (another amazing woman I have had the pleasure to get to know), really looking forward to it :)))

July 25th, 2018

I am due for an update.

The two three year olds are progressing well with being started.  Willow is riding both Bellevue and Santerina. 

Pregnancies so far: 
SPS Brentacia in-foal to Schwarzenegger
Rimini in-foal to Schwarzenegger
Santerina in-foal to Dauphin through ET
Hopefully a couple more to add to the list soon.

Had a disappointing conclusion to a good foaling season in losing the last foal, an embryo transfer by Schwarzenegger and out of SPS Fenjala due to dystocia.  

Very happy with the 4 foals here, is a nice crop of sweet youngsters.  I look forward to presenting them at the upcoming Hanoverian Inspection in Crapaud, September 1st and 2nd. 

Pictured below: Bellevue, Santerina, and Bellmora growing well and enjoying the heat wave.





June 19th, 2018

Had so much fun putting this video together.  Is a good group.  Looking forward to the last foal to arrive, the recipient is 343 days along now. 

Happy to announce SPS Brentacia is confirmed in-foal for 2019 to Schwarzenegger. 





June 14th, 2018

Has been a busy month, great fun though.  Waiting patiently for the recipient to start to show progress for foaling, she is carrying a Fenjala x Schwarzenegger embryo and is 338 days now. 

Five horses headed out to their new homes: Esprentina NPF with her colt Dalton to Michigan USA, Hallstatt and Stratford to Ontario, and Stellarton to Nova Scotia.  Farm is feeling quieter with 19 here.

Santerina and Bellevue are coming along in their work with Willow.  For someone looking for a nice 3 year old, these two are interesting young prospects. 

The little guys are growing like weeds, such a nice group of sweet babies.  From left to right: Legato (Londonderry/Dauphin/Weltmeyer), Sentinel (Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon), and Day Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall). These guys are having loads of fun together.
 





May 27th, 2018

It has been raining beautiful foals.
Both Duchess Alyce and SPS Brentacia foaled on May 21st, and Rimini foaled on May 25th.  

Congratulations to Nancy Murray on the purchase of Duchess Alyce's stunning Londonderry colt. 





May 17th, 2018

Dark Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall) 2017 HV filly. For those looking for a breeding and dressage prospect, this stunning filly is available. More information to follow this week.  Will be posted on the youngster sale page.

Both Schwarzenegger and Dauphin have been tested clear of WFFS.  N/N.




April 16th, 2018



Esprentina NPF (Sir Oldenburg/Florestan) foaled a lovely black colt by Dauphin at 11:15pm tonight.  Both mare and foal are now owned by Kim Sexton Ennett of MarKim Farms.  They will head to their new home in May.  Congratulations Kim!!





April 15th, 2018

Day Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall) at 2 and a half days of age :)





April 13th, 2018

SPS Wonderful Dream had a handsome black Dauphin colt at 12:15 AM, she was at day 337.  He is as cute as a button and already showing an engaging fun personality.  Pictures and video to come as he unfolds.


April 3rd, 2018

I am very much looking forward to having the two 3 year olds undersaddle.  Bellevue and Santerina (pictured below) will be started later this spring.  They have had a fulfilling winter being turned out with the broodmares, but they are definitely looking for some entertainment lol. They both have had some off farm adventures visiting a local indoor and popping over a crossrail on the longside.  Great fun seeing them add to their repertoire. 





March 22nd, 2018

Storm day on PEI, which means, update the website :)

The first two broodmares are making progress with Esprentina NPF (Tina) at day 331 and SPS Wonderful Dream (Martina) at day 315.  Tina is now within normal range (320-370), but I suspect a little while longer.  

Tina and her 2018 in-utero Dauphin foal have sold to US breeder Kimberely Sexton Ennett and MarKim Farms.  Congratulations!! Pictured Below.


I most definitely have foal fever after seeing all the lovely foals landing all over the world through Facebook.




February 13th, 2018

New video of Siskel from Michelle DeGarie in NB.  Well Done Michelle, he looks great!

Pictured below: Fairview :)





October 31st, 2017




The fall and winter are our favorite times to sit and dream about the coming foals.  Fillies or colts? Black, bay, chestnut??  Nick and I speculate on promising matches and debate the breeding choices every winter.  Making a plan in the off season makes the busy spring easier.   Though as anyone in the breeding world knows, those plans can quickly change and you need a), b), and c) options.  

Our 2018 Lineup!

Esprentina NPF (Sir Oldenburg/Florestan) x Dauphin: A tall dark extravagant mover for the dressage ring?
SPS Wonderful Dream (Weltruhm/Donnerhall) x Dauphin: Beautiful typey and correct dark dressage prospect?
Rimini (Rienzi/Davignon) x Schwarzenegger: Another powerhouse that is dual-purpose with push?
Dutchess Alyce (Dauphin/Weltmeyer) x Londonderry: Typey, elegant, with suspension and the sweetest personality?
SPS Brentacia (Brentano II/Imperator) x Dauphin: Correct, beautiful, maybe another one capable of training up to GP?
SPS Fenjala (Fabriano/Prince Orac xx) x Schwarzenegger ET: Character plus, beautiful, elastic, graceful, dressage prospect?



October, 2017

****Early Bird Discount in effect! ****

Have multiple mares?  Touch base to see what we can work out. 







October 2nd, 2017





Nick and I just returned from a wonderful 10 day vacation out West.  We took in beautiful parts of BC from Kelowna to Squamish up to Fort St. John.  Some of the crazy highlights were the Northern Lights from the hot tub with Susi Q, learning to two-step (omg), meeting a musician that will be one to watch for in the future, hiking trails I wasn't sure I would be able to get back down, and the beautiful Sea to Sky highway.  We continued onto Alberta, visiting family and zip lining into Cold Lake (aptly named).  Had lots of laughs and good exercise (basketball with the fam jam was pretty awesome).  We were lucky enough to visit a few Hanoverian farms in our travels.  Met many lovely people along the way and saw some very nice horses.  Thank you to all for the hospitality. 
FYI Squamish, BC farmer's market, wow-great vibe and lovely people (and the food!!!)
Thank you to Morgan Louis for farm sitting, Amanda Stright for helping out, and for haylage service extraordinaire from Pius Walsh. 
Giant thank you to Nick for organising all of this, I am occasionally a hermit, so it took some planning for this to all pan out.

We had a wonderful inspection at the Crapaud Agriplex on September 1st.  There was a mare performance test, mare inspection, mare show, foal inspection, and foal show.  Many beautiful Hanoverians from around the Maritimes congregated at the agriplex.  My favorite day of the year!!

We were super proud of Fairview (Furst Nymphenburg/Brentano II/Imperator) for winning Champion dressage foal.  We had purchased her dam, SPS Brentacia, last fall while she was in-foal to Furst Nymphenburg from Sharon Beard.  Michelle DeGarie was quick to buy Fairview at 8 days of age :) 

We had some very nice comments on our three other foals: Stellarton, Dark Dreamer, and Stratford.  We are hanging onto Stellarton and Dark Dreamer for the time being. 

Virginia Cooke and I then traveled to the Parkwood Inspection on the morning of September 2nd to take in their 2 day show. Beautiful inspection and quality horses.  Ted and Elaine Parkinson were so welcoming and the best hosts! 


August 21st, 2017

Video of Siskel undersaddle, only plays on a computer :)  He is growing up.
Such a smart fellow that took it all in stride, 10 rides.




August 7th, 2017

One of our young horse buyers was down for a visit and fell in love with Stratford.   We helped make a little switch, and Stratford will be heading to Ontario with Hallstatt.  Swan Song will be on the market shortly.  She is coming into her own, and has such presence.  For those that have admired this filly for the last year, here is your opportunity.

We are very excited that our embryo from Schwarzenegger x SPS Fenjala has held on in the recipient. Yay! A repeat of Stellarton!
So far 6 confirmed for 2018.  We are working to add one more, fingers crossed!!!


July 23rd, 2017

Three weeks left for the collection season for Schwarzenegger and Dauphin. We are able to work on fairly short notice. We have a wonderful local FedEx office that goes the extra mile. Touch base today if you would like to book a LFG contract and try to get the rest of those open mares in-foal.


Stratford (Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon) enjoying a nap in the straw.  This is lovely horse weather with warm temps, steady breeze, and the horse flies have backed off.



July 16th, 2017

Having great fun with our two three year olds; Siskel and Belfast.  We are very lucky to have Willow M'Cloud helping us out this summer, she is doing a great job.  Siskel has been lightly backed and is taking it all in stride. Belfast is next!

SPS Brentacia was confirmed in-foal to Dauphin for a late May foal.  That brings the tally up to five so far.  Unfortunately SPS Fenjala's Dauphin embryo did not stick in the recipient.  Will try again :)

Getting prepared for the Hanoverian Inspection.  It will be September 1st at the Crapaud Agriplex.  Will be a great opportunity to see all the lovely Hanoverian foals from around the Maritimes.  18 foals are expected to attend!

Meet Stellarton! Our embryo transfer colt out of SPS Fenjala (Fabriano/Prince Orac xx/Absatz) and by Schwarzenegger.  We are quite smitten with him. The wonderful recipient mare Cassie did a great job carrying this colt and is an excellent mother. 

We are happy to have another interesting line-up of foals for 2018:

SPS Wonderful Dream x Dauphin
Esprentina NPF x Dauphin
Rimini x Schwarzenegger
Duchess Alyce x Londonderry
SPS Fenjala x Dauphin (ET, to be confirmed)
SPS Brentacia x Dauphin (To be confirmed)

We may aim for one or two more with SPS Fenjala via embryo transfer.

We are happy to announce we have two confirmed pregnancies so far this season.  Esprentina NPF and SPS Wonderful Dream are both confirmed in-foal to Dauphin for 2018.

The stallions are producing many pregnancies around North America.  Semen quality is fantastic.  Call us today if you would like to book to either of these dark beauties.

We are enjoying seeing the arrival of the beautiful foals for our mare owners.

Duchess Alyce produced a tall leggy dark Schwarzenegger filly on Thursday night. Unfortunately there were some foaling complications and the foal had internal damage, she passed at 30 hours old.  Ali is doing ok and is back out with her pasture mates.

Very excited to introduce Dark Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall).  A beautiful black filly born at 4pm on May 2nd, day 338. 
We have been waiting quite some time for another filly from SPS Wonderful and are very happy to welcome her to the farm.


May 2nd, 2017

Waiting patiently for SPS Wonderful Dream to foal, she is day 338 and dripping milk at the moment.  

We bred Esprentina NPF to Dauphin last week.  Fingers crossed for a black dot in the near future.

The stallions are glad the season is in full swing :)

We have some fun crosses planned for 2018, please check the sales page for more information.

We are pleased to offer Santerina for the discerning buyer.  This gorgeous grey filly was to be retained for our breeding program, however, our size preference is 16.2hh with substance and medium bone.  This filly will likely finish 15.3-16hh and is quite refined.  For someone looking for a wonderful mind, and powerful movement-this is your filly.

Wolkentanz's Willow HB (Wolkentanz II/Sir Oldenburg/Florestan) 2016 HV filly left today for her new home in Maryland, USA.  We wish her owners all the best with her undersaddle and in the breeding shed.

Some dates to keep an eye out for with collections through the season.  

FedEx:  Canada http://www.fedex.com/ca_english/services/serviceguide/holidays.html

FedEx: United States http://www.fedex.com/us/service-guide/holiday-schedule.html


SPS Wonderful Dream is 303 days along today, slowly but surely we are getting there.  Love brushing the mares and feeling those foals kicking.  I would guess she will foal April 26th-April 29th (ish lol).

There are two mares quite close behind her, Duchess Alyce (292 days) and Rimini (290 days), both are carrying Schwarzenegger foals.

Started a new page as the "News" page was big and slow to load with all the files and videos.

First shipment of the season left today for Wisconsin.  Dauphin was the lucky fellow.  We have a wonderful local FedEx depot in Charlottetown, they were quite funny, said seeing the boxes come in is their first real sign of spring lol.  

Both Belgrade and Hallstatt were gelded last Monday. 

Looking forward to the first foal of the season; Dauphin x SPS Wonderful Dream.  Guessing late April, early May.  She is not nearly as big as she was last year carrying Hallstatt.  Please be a filly.  We are hoping in a big way to retain a filly from "Martina" for our breeding program.

There are 19 horses on the farm at the moment, what a nice number :)  They are not all ours: there are four weanlings being boarded, three horses on breeding lease, and one recipient on lend.  Our aim is to over winter about 14 for next year, we'll see how it goes.  We have reduced taking outside horses at this time to focus on our own. 

Happy to announce we have filled the summer position on the farm, thank you to all that applied.
