Hello Susan!

I trust you are all keeping well and in eager anticipation of the Christmas

period approaching. To begin with, I would, once again, like to thank you

for the wonderful horses which I enjoy so much every day. Holme Park Vincent

distinguishes himself with his size and conformation along with the most

elevated movement and attractiveness which is desired though not often

attained in our breed. And all of this enclosed within a temperament and aura that

is so willing and regal.

Obviously, for Holme Grove Cappuccino, her grading status within the ATA

speaks for itself. The outstanding movement and scope along with the

impeccable bloodlines which have been cultivated so meticulously since when

Trakehnen was 'in flower' and recognized as the 'saga of the horse' in Europe.

Add to this her temperament, so importantly feminine and maternal. A very

rare find and when we shared your sadness over the loss of Holme Grove Copelia

this past summer, I was and continue to be very priviledged to own, not only a

daughter, but also a grand-daughter of that 'great lady'. Camelot of

Rosewood, rising three next year, is very promising and, in my opinion,

international dressage quality possessing the desired amplified movement,

impressive size and exterior beauty so necessary at that top level.

This coming Spring, I will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of Cappuccino's

2nd foal, due May 25th.

Seasons greetings from Canada,

Jim, Joyce and Noel
