Any updates on your Sempatico babies?
How are your Sempatico children doing? My mare (Something Brighter aka Whisper) is 6 now and was doing really amazing this summer, but unfortunately she injured a front suspensory and is currently on stall rest (she should make a full recovery, we hope). Aaand, she's pregnant! Poor girl has a lot going on! She is due next August with a Fabuleux baby.
Earlier this year we were schooling beautiful, uphill canter-walk-canter transitions with a simple change, haunches in and shoulder in at trot, leg yields and shoulder in at canter, etc... she was just figuring out Spanish walk in hand, and we did lots of counted walk which really helped her figure out how uphill she can be! She is such a joy to ride, she wants to please her rider more than any other horse I think I've ever sat on. I took her on trail rides with bikes and strollers and dogs, jumped a little field hunter course with her with no issues, etc... She's a great horse!
She is handling her stall rest and handwalking well - she has tons of energy but walks right with me and behaves even though you can see on her face how badly she wants to leap in the air! She was also very good for the vet for all the repro work - he was impressed with how good she was about everything, especially with it being her first breeding experience.
There aren't really any recent pics, but here is her facebook album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=9f3814a458
