News of the Progress of Holme Grove Prokofiev and Holme Park Krug

Krug and Prokofiev have continued their training in 2003 under my sister Julia Wetton.  Julia was training with Kyra Kyklund who is unfortunately moving from England and Julia has therefore now started training with Peter Storr.  The stallions and Julia get on really well with Peter and much progress has been made.  They have not done much competition as have concentrated on getting them more established at home, although Holme Grove Prokofiev qualified for the Medium Winter Semi Finals in one outing. 

The biggest surprise and most exciting news of the year was when Julia found out she was pregnant !  Having a 13 year old son, Ernest and a husband who underwent chemotherapy 11 years ago she thought her family was complete!  Her new baby is due at the end of April 2004. 

As she will have a few months out of the saddle we were delighted when Peter Storr agreed to take over the rides on both Holme Grove Prokofiev and Holme Park Krug while Julia is on maternity leave.  It will be an exciting period to follow their progress with Peter. He can't wait to get his hands on them!!

Both boys are currently at West Kington Stallion Centre having semen collected for next season so that they can concentrate on competing with Peter in 2004.

We of course wish Julia, David and Ernie many congratulations on their news and wish them well with the new arrival (Can prepare a foaling box if required).
