Enieta (Brentano II/Jazz) leads the way out to the field on a snow covered day.

The '09 foals have recovered from weaning and are now in a growth spirt. They like to get out in the snow and show their stuff!!

Sunday, December 06, 2009


It was the first real snow on December 6th which is on the late side for us. The weanlings had never seen this much snow so this was an excuse for a good run. We added a picture of the house because the snow might not stay for a white Christmas.

News for Fall '09

"The ’09 foals have been weaned. Weaning is a gradual process as we separate the foals from their dams for feeding each night for a short while. This starts in August and we then build up the time away just before weaning. It usually goes well because there is a group, this year seven foals, to provide company for the each other. We then separate them and the mares soon are of to the pasture with out them. We leave the foals penned in the barn for a few days and then to a small outdoor pen. They now have their own pasture and are quite independent. However, they look like weanlings , a bit ribby and not as slick as when they are getting lots of milk. The four foals which have been sold will be staying with us for some time to take advantage of group up bringing.

We took Bagatelle ( Donnatelli/Jazz) to Martha in Virginia for training. Bagatelle is now three and was doing walk- trot -canter both ways. Martha will school her for the winter and she will be offered for sale.

We have sold Demarko (Johnson/Floristan) to Andrea Taylor in British Columbia. Andrea is a very successful rider and coach and we are delighted to have Demarko going to her stable"

Keuring Gingerwood 2009

Calypso (Sandreo/Jazz) 2 yrs first Premium
Enieta NPF (Brentano II/Jazz)

Enkeur NPF (Lord sinclair/Tango) and Zinosa (Tango/Purioso) First Premium

Esprentina NPF (Sir Oldenburg/ Floristan) First Premium Ch Young horse

Bagatelle NPF (Donatelli / Jazz) 3 yrs

Demarko NPF (Johnson/Floristan) yearling First Premium

The 2009 gingerwood keuring is now history. It was a beautiful sunny day and the facilities were spectacular. The keuring jury was scheduled to start at 2 pm but the jury's plane was diverted to Halifax and after promised rescheduling they had to drive the last leg of their trip. They arrived for a 7 pm start ! The last of the two dressage rides were in failing sunlight and we moved indoors for the rest of the keuring. However, with the great indoor lighting at Gingerwood the keuring went very well.

We recieved a first premium for the yearling Demarko (Johnson/Floristan) , two year old Calypso (Sandreo/Jazz) and the foals Espertina ( Sir Oldenburg/Floristan) and Enkur (Lord Sinclair)

Zinosa was accepted into the studbook and Bagatelle NPF recieved a high enough mark for studbook but needs to meet further requirments as she is register B.

Esprentina NPF was the high scoring foal at the keuring.

All our pictures were taken before the keuring while there was still light so we had no ribbons at that time.

Bagatelle at her first show.

We had the thrill of showing Bagatelle (Donnatelli/Jazz/Zeoliet) at her first dressage show. It was Walk Trot at a Discovery show but she scored 8's for gaits and preformad like a seasoned show horse. She is three so Megan has not asked her to come on to the bit. Also, Bagatelle is our first "home bred" which we have had an opportuity to show at dressage.

Breedings for 2010

We have finished breeding for this year with five of our seven mares in foal.

Veganieta (Jazz/Zeoliet) is in foal to Contango. This is a new stallion for us and we used him because we have seen some great Jazz/Contango offspring. We also watched the super Contango son Ravel last year and decided we should have a Contango. Veganieta is 17 hands and is long legged so we think it should be a good cross.

Florientena (Floristan/Pilot) is again in foal to Sir Oldenburg. Florientena has given us four good foals, two by Sandreo and one each by Johnson and this year by Sir Oldenburg. We like them all but a repeat of Espertina would be great for next year.

Waltzlina (Jet Set/Haarem) is again in foal to Johnson. We like her this year filly by Johnson. We think Johnson improved on her conformation with good movement also. We again would be pleased with a repeat.

Vuzarma (Hamlet/Purioso) is in foal to Verdi. This will be her second Verdi following a Concorde this year and Concord two years ago. We liked the Verdi of last year, Desarma very much and decided we wanted another. Verdi has been very sucessful as a young jumper and carries great bloodlines.

Verginia (Welt Hit II/Zeoliet) is in foal to Sandreo after two Donnatelli foals. Both the Donnatelli foals looked good to us but we like the Sandreo offspring we are working with and wanted another one.

Virtual Rose and Zaniantha are not in foal this year.
