Breeding Extraordinary Horses for Ordinary Riders

Hi, I'm Lou and live on 25 acres with my other half, Nick and daughter, Amy.

Our LSB journey started a little over 10 years ago when we bought 25 acres and a little house in Rangitumau, Masterton. The dream for me however started when I was a very little girl and all I ever wanted was to have a cottage in the country with horses in the paddocks outside. I am proof that it is possible to live the dream :D

I have been a member of this forum for, I think, nine years and have been lucky enough to meet a number of the members and attend and host a couple of 'functions' over this time - always LOTS of fun! In my experience this forum is filled with super people who offer a wealth of knowledge on a breadth of subjects.

If you would like to learn more about what it is that we do on our LSB, please visit the blog:

Hi Leonie

Yes, it was very hard, especially when I look at his beautiful babies, but I am happy now it is done and I think he will be too - in time. It will take a while for the hormones to leave his system so he still thinks he is a real man, for the moment anyway. As for 'forever horses' - I would love to say yes but only time and finances will tell on that score. The biggest shame really is that the bugger didn't really grow and I really think he is too small for me. In an ideal world I would find a deserving and talented young rider to take him on and would support/subsidise their career together. But, I really need to fertilise the money tree well for that to happen!!

Oh and Enya was bred in partnership with Maude's owner so she's half mine - not sure which half yet, the front or the back [;)]
