Just caught up with this thread.
I would like to say a big thank you to Kossack for putting on such a wonderful sale, they even managed to keep the weather good
I understand nine horses forward at the sale had been at Kossack for a number of weeks - the difference was noticeable. The remaining horses arrived 3 days before the sale
Kossack did a wonderful job in presenting and showing them to us all.
These horses, remember had left their birth home, travelled EIGHT days on a truck and you expect them to look like the nine who had been in the tender loving care of Kossack for a number of weeks.
You have to be able to look beyond what you see in front of you
The quality comes through - OK not all are show winners but given time and love and care in a new home their brilliance will shine through.
Remember Plumbum - he wasn't sold at last years Tersk Holland but Robbie has a good eye and he bought him afterwards - and look how he turned out
We were VERY fortunate to acquire BASRA (Piligrim x Baigora) - sorry Dean your photo does not do her justice
and the VERY special PRITCHA (Aromat x Polinezia) - poor Pritcha was taken away from her foal, loaded on a lorry for eight days to a new home - she was depressed, sad and wouldn't move but we can't wait to get her home to UK where she will stay with us for the rest of her life.
Come and see her in a year, you won't recognise her. She will join her half sister Perspektiva and the rest of the family.
