I just returned home from the mare & foal presentation at Charlot Farms. Extremely well run, horses were spotless (considering the never ending rain this year) and the babies were glorious.
At the end of the mares/foals, we were treated to the Stallions being free jumped. I had not seen Cabardino go before and I can tell you, he is breathtaking. Rio's Filius is outstanding and my fingers are crossed that my mare Meredith is back in foal to him for 2010. The highlight I believe, was a 3 year old son of Cabardino (Caballero) who went through at the end. He's still intact and was mesmerized by the audience. As he was cantering by to enter the chute, he would stop to be petted each time by his onlookers.
