Lots to catch up on! Looking forward to a winter of hard work with two new horses who have come in training: Roberta Holinko's StarFlash and Deb Hosmer's Eukalypta. Optimus Prime will be heading home to Lex's to enjoy the easy life of retirement and banana eating at the end of the month - it will be really strange to walk into the barn without him in it - he's been a fixture here since 2014.
