A ray of sunshine on a dark day. Mary Stewart, a visiting mare, has foaled a lovely Due Diligence filly early on Tuesday morning
It is with great sadness we have to let everyone know that we lost Pastoral Pursuit yesterday. Sadly he died after covering a mare due to a rupture in a major vessel in his chest a symptom of his age. We are all deeply saddened by his death.
Pastoral Pursuits will be a great loss to us as he was a real character and will be sadly missed.
