April Update

Wow! I can't believe it has been almost a month since I posted! Yikes!!! It has been a very busy April for us, both personally and professionally. Terry and I had a great visit to Ramona, CA earlier this month where we had the pleasure of visiting with our daughter, Dawn, son in law, Scotty and their children - Tyler and his wife, Sabrina, Tanner and Tori. We did the grandparent thing - going fishing and watching soccer games. Such a nice visit and a break in our daily routine. We came back in time to visit a little bit with our German friend and client, Toni Kurzrock and her friend, Kirsten Baer. In fact, Toni and Kirsten flew with horses for us on Easter weekend. Thank you so much for taking good care of the horses. And thank you also to Karim Talamas, Catherine Zug and Toni for sharing your horses with us. It was a pleasure working with each of you. Thanks also to Piet Visser for accompanying a lovely group of Arabian horses to Dammam, Saudi Arabia for us earlier this week. And thanks to Mohammed Ibrahim, Abdullah Abdulaziz Al Talib and Yousef Badar Alawoud for sharing your mares with us. Today we have some precious ponies that are on their way to Johannesburg, South Africa. Thank you to the Davids family for sharing your ponies with us. And thanks also to Megan, our ranch manager and Quinten Wiersma, our Dutch friend, for flying with the ponies for us. Much appreciate you all! We are starting new quarantine groups next week for Amsterdam and Dammam, Saudi Arabia - and we are gathering horses now for our next shipments to Luxembourg, Kuwait, Brazil and Korea.
