John Anderson

Thank you Kirsty for the update and your professionalism!!!!!!!! It is great as an owner to receive this progress report!!! Hopefully sunshine is on its way!!!



Hi Sam,

A HUGE thank you to you and your team for all you have done with the foal, (plus a difficult mare!), both safe and well at Brighthill, just taking vet opinion here and we might go for an intervention on that knee earlier rather than later, but you have certainly given us a great chance and a platform to work from.

Extremely grateful for all you have done, don’t know how to explain it, but the communication from you and your team has been awesome, it just never seemed like you were at the other end of the North Island!  J  There are some rather large studs a lot closer to home who could certainly take a lesson from you!


Look forward to sending you pictures of the final improved version in a few months!


Kind regards



Thanks so much for all your hard work bringing this foal into the world, you have done a great job on our behalf and it is most appreciated.




Also, just a quick note to thank you and your team for returning Cachette in such good condition. I appreciate you taking good care of her. (Pleased you managed to get her in foal too).

Kind Regards,



Great news. Have fingers x'd.
Also,thankyou for the extra care and time given by all @LA to mare & foal...( Hannah & Molly )

Cheers Alan

To the Staff of LA Stud.

Ruby Rea my mare returned last evening from your stud. I would like to congratulate you on excellent care you gave her. She was in tip top condition and was bouncing when she came of the truck.

One does hear of some terrible stories about mares been sent away to studs, and it is always concerning when one sends a horse so far away. I would have no hesitation, recommending your stud to anyone.

Thank you and best wishes with your stallions.
