2013 Sale's Season closes

November 20, 2013

The sunset from our barn 41 consignment at Keeneland

Last Thursday at about 5:00 pm the last hammer fell at Keeneland and with it came the conclusion of the 2013 breeding stock sale. It was an amazing eleven days. For Mill Ridge we sent 57 horses to Keeneland to sell this November and brought two back to the farm. One failed to meet her reserve and one was withdrawn after her owner sold another mare so well she wanted to keep the second…said another way 56 of 57 horses brought to the sale grounds were sold: what a sale.


Fall Graduation

October 15, 2013

long Fall shadows

We have been very blessed this past week with some remarkable fall weather: warm cloudless days replaced by crisp starry nights. Ample sun and enough green in the grass that one’s thirst to be outside cannot be satisfied.

It’s a wonderful time for reflection on the farm. Our yearlings have been sold (except the few that sell at Fasig-Tipton next week) or shipped to their next phase. Our work developing their bodies and minds complete.
