First of all – shout out to Westporte baby West River for finishing 6th in the CCI 2* at Bromont (with one of only 4 double clear XC trips)! I spend a lot of time stalking this horse since she has the same sire as Sadie.

As for her BFF Lissa, well, these two apparently have to do everything exactly alike, because she’s having a…
This one could be a legit stallion prospect, with world class parents like these. He’s for sale in utero! 😉
So there we have it – two colts. Impressively, 11 of you guessed that particular combination! The winner of the awesome gift basket from KJ Creations is (drum roll please):
