Cascaya and Dagostino – sport session

I already mentioned in my post about the Haflinger Wallstreet, that since many years I visit Beyschlag Sporthaflinger to take pictures of their blond horses. But two days ago was the first time ever that we took more pictures of Warmbloods than of Haflingers 😉

“Casa” came to the family as their first warmblood. As young filly she was “the brown one” and for long time she was also the only mare between all the geldings and stallions. When I met her the first time as a yearling, she was already taller than her blond colleagues and had the longest ears in the universe 😉 Now she is six years old and is till taller than everybody else and the length of her ears did also increase. But also she is a beauty! and she is wonderful to look at under the saddle.

Dagostino is the latest member of the horse family. He is already seven years old, but he never really had to work until now, in fact he didn’t really belong to anybody and so nobody really cared for him. “Dino” was very thin and in a rather pitiful state when Steffi decided to take him home. In the past 6 months the gelding started to flourish and was very happy with the new treatment and his new job as dressage horse. He is very skilled and likes to work, he new life suits him very well. I’m very keen to see Dino again next year, when he will be rounder, although he might never lose his Thoroughbred heritage 😉
