Hey, Clearview family! We’re back from our holiday hiatus and thrilled to bring you our first newsletter of 2018! If you’ve been following our Facebook page, then you know that we’ve got some exciting events on the horizon and a couple new four-legged members of our family! So let’s get right to it!
Special Feature: New Family Members and a New Website!
We recently added two new members to our four-legged Clearview family, and we can’t wait for our farm guests to meet them! First we have Dixie, a beautiful Registered Clydesdale mare at 17hh, from Irish Thunder Clydesdales in Wisconsin.
So far Dixie is settling in great and as gentle as can be. Keep an eye out for her in the field with her pasture buddies!
Next we have Radison Ravenwood, a stunningly beautiful Gypsy Vanner stallion. He was Marie’s Christmas present to herself, since he wouldn’t fit in Santa’s sleigh!
As you can clearly see, they’re already bonding!
Finally, we’ve done some major overhauls on the layout of our website to make it more graphically-rich and better showcase the beautiful scenery. It’s still under construction, so make sure to follow our newsletters and Facebook page for the most updated information on upcoming shows and events!
Word in the Herd
Winter Farm Guests
The chilly December weather didn’t stop our guests from coming out and having a great time. Here we have a fun group ending 2017 with a ride around the farm.
Liana Jayne, a guest visitor from Australia, had an enjoyable afternoon hanging out with Sarah (Color Congress High Point Champion).
Sarah showed her all about Ranch Riding, and Liana got to do it all on Sarah’s horse, Appaloosa Champion Jake.
Thank you Liana for joining us at Clearview! Glad you had a good time!
Horse and Rider Magazine Editorial
So happy to find that Clearview Farm was mentioned in Horse and Rider Magazine as a vacation destination for horse lovers everywhere! How cool is that?? Thank you Horse and Rider!
Here’s the cover of the issue with our article, so hurry to your local newsstand and pick up a copy if you haven’t already!
The holiday season was pretty quiet in terms of events, but we hosted a mounted shooting practice on January 20th that was well-received. Keep watching this space as we start to fill our calendar with upcoming shows and clinics!
Equines and Services for Sale
Corona Extra Chex Stud Service – $850
Now we may have made a big deal about Radison in this newsletter, but we can’t forget about Corona! Corona Extra Chex, son of Nu Chex to Cash, is standing at stud at Clearview, and you could not ask for a more personable stallion to sire your next foal. He’s extremely “honest,” in that you never have to worry about guessing his moods before a show or change classes at the last minute. And when he’s not cleaning house in the show ring or training, he has a gelding as a pasture buddy, enjoys his leisure time, and gets along great with other horses on trail rides. In fact, he’s so laid back that people who have never met him are often shocked to learn that he’s a stallion!
And if you needed any proof that he sires amazing foals, here’s a gorgeous buckskin colt born in April that he sired to a mare owned by friends in Texas.
Diego, 5 year old gaited flashy TWH gelding – $2500 OBO
Diego is a 14.2 hand chestnut and white spotted TWH gelding, solid broke and fun trail horse for the advanced beginner rider! We have taken him trail riding numerous amounts of times. He will lead or follow and also rides out on his own just fine. His gait is as smooth as silk and will go all day long, anywhere you point he will go. He is sure-footed and will go through water, over logs, and over bridges. He is up to date on all shots, vaccinations, and Coggins and good for the farrier. The only reason for sale is we are reducing stock, so Diego is ready and eagerly looking for his next trail buddy! He does well at all the local fun shows due to his eye catching appearance and solid gait. Click this link for more photos and a video! http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-1059309
