I noticed in the Grand Prix yesterday that Cedric is under the ownership of Cherry Knoll Farm of West Grove, PA instead of Happy Hill Farm. I googled the farms name and came up with a Angus Cow farm? Does anyone know the story behind why Cedric was sold to a cow farm?:confused:

For anyone interested here's a link to the farms website: http://www.cherryknollfarminc.com/index.html

Not sure if that's true, but I do know Margaret of cherry knoll owns many top dressage horses, as well as hunters and jumpers. And cows. She's a top supporter of sport and a fun, nice lady.

Well, their listed as his owner and they were announced as his owner during the GP yesterday. I just thought it was odd that a cow farms owns a top show jumper...

Just a "cow farm". Cherry knoll is one of the best Angus show cattle breeders in the country! Cattle like these sell for $10,000-over $100,000. And show competitively all over the USA. So they are not just cows, like your pretty show hunters are "just horses".

Oh people, just be glad there is a buyer/ sponsor for Peter's horse that is also one of the most talented we have in the USA. Yeah to the "cow farmers".

Yes to the uninformed, Cedric was owned by Happy Hill, Peter Wetherill. Our friend Peter died last year. With as many posts as you have I am surprised that you don't know who Peter is.

Well, sorry for not knowing anything about cows. I'm not involved with cows and I don't follow them. There's no need to be snarky!:rolleyes:

Exactly. I am glad he is still owned locally.

And those are some beautiful cattle on the Cherry Knoll site.

Sorry, but your first post of "He was sold to a cow farm!?" seemed a little snotty. :yes:

I don't know much about cows either, but the cows on that site are handsome buggers!

Unlike horse farms, serious "cow" farms actually make money...alot of it.

You have no idea what a straw from a well known bull brings or how many hundreds they sell. Posted before, have a friend who sales repped straws-she ran 2 Reiners and an Arab then added an all around type Paint for her DD with her yearly commisions. People always eat and good bloodline produces good cattle that produce demand for good cattle that produce $$$$ for those producing and selling good bloodlines.

Good for her and good for her leaving Cedric in deserving hands.

hey, Secret Dove, maybe you should do a little research about horse owner and buyer before you post such an uninformed post.

I don't know anything about cows or cow farmers.

I'm just glad somebody bought Cedric who seems ready to keep such a talented horse on American soil in the hands of his long-time rider. Knock wood. :yes:

Congrats to them on the ownership of such a lovely horse. :)

No thank you. I know enough about horse ownership, lol. The post wasn't "uninformed", it was just a simple question, that's all.:)

All I know about cows is that I don't eat them anymore. That's where my information stops.:D

I'm super glad that someone bought Cedric in the US and not another country. We need him on our team and I'm glad(and hope) that it'll stay that way.:)

And a WEG dressage horse, and bought a hunter from me years ago that they campaigned with professionals throughout its career. It's not odd. It's sponsorship of our sport.
