Visit & Update on my mare infoal to Zillionair
Thank you so much for taking the time to show me all the new babies at your farm, 2 weeks
ago! They are all so wonderful, friendly, correct, etc.
I wanted to give you an update on Messenger of Light aka "Leia", who is in foal
to Zillionair. I have just sold the baby, in-utero, to a lady in Washington. So, after the
baby is weaned (foal is due May 1, 2005), it will be heading across the country. The lady
who bought the baby is very excited and is looking forward to competing with it, when it
is old enough. It will probably be a hunter/jumper prospect.
I am looking forward to sending Leia back to Zillionair in 2005! And sending a second
mare, Mayo Lane, for a palomino!
Thanks again for being such a pleasure to do business with!

Bright Gold Flames, everything and more than we could have asked for
We had a great time at your farm. Robert and I wanted to thank you for your hospitality.
We couldn't be more pleased with our new addition, Bright Gold Flames. He is everything
and more than we could have asked for. He seems to be settling right in. We will keep you
posted. We will be back to see you next year. Thanks again for everything.

Love the new pics of Sunny! What a beautiful mare she is.
Thanks again for being such a great hostess when we visited. I can't get over how nice all
your beautiful babies and mamas and daddies even are! Hopefully I'll get to see you again
before Sophie comes to visit Zillionair in a year...
Get those pics of Sparkles up, I want to ogle her some more. If only I had money to spare,
you know who would be mine!

Norsire Farm Visit
Thank you for the wonderful visit! It was beyond my expectations!
Gold Card is truly amazing
gentle, sweet, and beautiful... and to watch him move
I couldn't get enough! (As I am sure you could tell by the eager jump everytime you asked
if I wanted to handgraze him!)... I missed Daffodil, Sparkles and Zy's sweet attention
already. I was expecting to be wow'd by Daffodil (from your current pictures)... but I
couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how beautiful and sweet Sparkles is turning out. And
Zy, so attentive... and flawless! I truly could not pick a favorite... even all those
babies I do not mention were truly gems!
but I can't name them all, can I???
Your horses and farm are truly beautiful! I hope Zilly and Smokey (Gold Card) will have
future dates with a few girls once our yearlings reach breeding age ;)

Mare Care at Norsire Farm
My mare, Messenger of Light aka "Leia", spent 5 weeks at Norsire
Farm, along with her young filly. Leia returned to me in excellent condition! She was nice
and plump, her mane had been pulled, she was groomed, had dapples on her coat, etc! I have
boarded mares at other farms and I have never had one return to me in this great of
condition! I am very happy with the quality of care she received. Bridget kept me informed
via email or phone calls and I never worried about my mare and foal while they were in her
care. And now, I am very happy to report that Leia is in foal to Zillionair for a May 1,
Thanks Bridget, I may be sending 2 mares (Leia for a return visit and my chestnut TB mare,
Mayo Lane) next year!
May 19th, 2004
I just wanted to update you on my gorgeous chestnut filly Misplaced Gold...we call her
Rani which is Indian for Queen. She definitly is a queen! After our little scare, Rani has
picked up and is looking absolutely amazing. She's still got those long legs but is
finally growing into them. She celebrated her 1 yr b-day 2 months ago and is starting
walk-whoas in the roundpen every few weeks. She is an absolute doll...so easy to handle
and such a sweetheart. I couldn't have asked for a better baby.

Gold Card Son!
I am the recent new owner of a horse who I am told is a 6yo son of "Gold
Card". He is out of a AQHA mare (located in Illinois) who was not an approved mare
and therefor was never registered. He is a super cute fella and is going make me a
terrific hunter and my husband a wonderful trail horse . . .his name is Paycheque!!

Visit to Norsire Farm to Check Out Stallions for 2005
On Monday, Jan. 19, 2004, my husband and I visited Norsire Farm. It was
freezing cold, but we had a wonderful time! Bridget was very cheerful and a pleasure to
talk to. First she showed us Pure White Gold and the gelding. Pure White Gold was very
sweet and friendly and looks like he is going to be a big boy when he finishes growing!
Then we went to see Zillionair, my main reason for the visit, as I wanted to look at him
for a possible mate for my Halo mare. We went into his paddock and spent quite some time
petting on him and standing with him in his run-in shed. He was fascinated by my coat (the
hood has fake fur and he thought it was neat LOL). He kept nuzzling me and just loved to
be touched. He also is quite a nice size and his legs are so straight! I couldn't fault
his conformation, but most of all that temperment of his is to die for! Temperment is
extremely important to me in my breeding program. Zillionair has the cutest head with a
very kind expression. I can't say enough good things about this nice young stallion. He is
even a bit calmer than my own gelding! It was hard to believe he was a breeding stallion,
as calm as he was.
We also saw Issue of Gold, who was also a total sweetheart. I didn't go in with him,
because by this point we all were freezing! But, I was also impressed with him.
We also saw all of Bridget's mares, including the dams of Issue of Gold and Zillionair.
All of these mares were very friendly, especially Our White Lady!
I wish it hadn't been so cold, as I could have spent a lot more time outside with these
wonderful horses! I hope to return when it is warmer and do just that!
And, we will be sending our Halo mare to Zillionair this year to be bred for our first
colored TB foal! We are very excited about this and look forward to doing business with

Dear Bridget and Fred,
Aussie arrived safely in Texas on January 12th. He has the GREATEST PERSONALITY, if I do
say so, myself. Being in a hunter/jumper barn with about 40 brown horses.....I have caught
a lot of flack about "that yeller feller!" All in good fun, though,...hey what
are barn friends for??? Anyway, we gave him the best view the barn has to offer, which has
been great, because he always has his head out the window! People constantly comment on
his kind and calm disposition. Today, while I was at the tack shop, I ran into a barnmate,
who said that his black lab "Max" had greeted Aussie with a lick on the nose,
and that Aussie just stood there. That is kind of how he strikes me
-basically unconcerned with what is going on
-just more curious. That has been so nice, as in situations that you would expect him to
spook, he really wants to just go take a look and see what all the fuss is. No games, no
drama, just a busy mind who likes to work! Quite unusual for a 4 yr old thoroughbred!
Anyway, let me apologize right now to the people I beat in purchasing Aussie. ANYONE would
have loved him. I'm just so grateful that he is mine! Anyway, thanks again Bridget and
Fred....I can't tell you enough how much I LOVE my new boy. Got to run
I'm sure he is waiting for Mom to come with his daily hugs and kisses!!! And a few apple
-don't worry Bridget...NO seeds! :-)

Aussie White Gold
Dear Bridget and Fred,
Thank you for entrustiong me with the care of "your boy" AUSSIE WHITE GOLD. I am
so proud to be his new owner, and very excited about what our future holds.
For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of visiting Norsire Farm, let me say that
you are missing a truly unique experience.
It is unfortunate that the words "horse-trader" and "integrity" do not
often appear in the same sentence,
in this day and age. Well, you can relax at Bridget's.
Bridget doesn't have to "sell" you her horses, they sell themselves.What Bridget
does, is share, with you, her 30 acres of rolling property,lovely dark brown board
creek, immaculate 10-stall barn, and 360 degree mountain view. Living in Texas, I was
immediately in awe of all the TREES! Then there are her unique animals. The all-white
thoroughbred mare imported from Australia, the buckskin pinto stallion, the all-white
colt, cremellos, palominos, etc.,etc.
You'll be impressed by how gentle and loving all her animals are. Bridget gives Parelli
training to all of her babies, so that they are relaxed and comfortable in environemnts
that would spook most other horses.
You'll also get a kick out of the fact that she has an all-white cat that she and Fred
rescued, with one blue eye and one green eye.
Then there is Nikko- the German Shepherd. An absolutely stellar guy, you will crack up
when he carries buckets and the Parelli training "carrot stick" wherever Bridget
Picture standing on a hillside with the wind blowing surrounded by her herd of mares. You
have a pocketful of carrots on one side, and apple slices on the other. (No apple seeds
-Bridget will explain.) The "girls" all come up to say "Hi" and get
themselves a little treat. They are all carrying the new round of foals that spring will
(Except for the filly, who is still too young.)
After, I videotaped Bridget putting my new guy through his Parelli paces. How she keeps
his attention with all the farm's distractions, is beyond me. Even I had to turn my head
when his Dad, "Issue of Gold" came galloping up and down his paddock, bucking
and kicking up his heels.
Finally, Bridget reaches into her rol-a-dex, and gives you all the info. you need to get
your horse vetted, insured and shipped expeditiously. She'll produce all the horses health
records from a well-organized notebook.
Now that all is taken care of , and its time to fly home, you may just decide that you
simply cannot live the rest of your life outside the Virginia countryside.
Well, Bridget is also a realtor, and she'll give you her card, with a smile, and her
website, where you can find just the right home to live out your newly wished-for life.
Perhaps a little something on the Shenandoah????
Ahh, if only all of lifes experiences were this simple, and this pleasant
Thanks again Bridget and Fred!

Misplaced Gold My Special Filly!
I am so happy with my girl, she is doing so great. She has been so easy to handle and is
so sweet. She gets along with all the yearlings out at the barn and is just so great to be
around. I will try and send you pictures of her as she gets bigger.

I LOVE My New Baby!
I found this website through Equine.com and was interested in purchasing one of
the babies. I was a bit wary at first because I live in Georgia and wouldn't be able to
see the baby in person. Bridget was very up-front about everything and sent me a video of
the baby I was interested in. Bridget was always available to answer all my
questions/concerns. My new girl "Misplaced Gold" arrived tonight (8/2/03) and
was just what I expected and more. She was leading great and not nervous about anything.
She walked right off the trailer acting like she owned the place! She has settled in great
and I'm sure I will be happy with her for many years to come. I would encourage the
purchase of a horse from Bridget to anyone. Thanks so much Bridget...I will send you
pictures as she grows big!

News From Shop Til U Drop
How are you?I am sorry if you haven't heard anything from me since my trip at your place.
But I just wanted to give you an update of Tilly (aka Clementine). We moved to
Massachusetts a year and a half ago. So we had to rediscover winter like we had in
Montreal. Clementine adjusted well, I first I put her in a hunter/jumper barn because they
had beautiful fields to ride in and I didn't want her to be worked to intensely in
Dressage, she needed to mature a bit and have fun. In January my dressage trainer told me
it was time to be in a dressage barn, the jumps were getting in our way. So I went to
Lockspur, this beautiful dressage facility and we worked on our movements. My trainer just
loves her! She has such a great disposition. So anyway we showed 1st level this summer and
we did great! we got a 66% at spring show but because I was not part of the canadian
federation I had to ride Hors Concours, I don't have to tell you how desapointed I was
since we got first place. But the good news is we just got back from a 3 day show in
Woodstock vermont and we did great. We got a 64%, a 65% which give us 2nd place, a 60%
because she had this huge spook ( it was raining and this guy came out of the woods
wearing this big red rain coat!!!) but we got a 5th place.
I wanted to let you know how well she was doing.
I hope all is well with and your horses.

Gold Visa My Golden Boy
Doodles/Gold Visa is looking fine! He has turned a wonderful golden color. He is the best
He gets lots of attention from everyone at our stable, he is the only Palomino color horse
in the barn!
We need your help with our first registration form. We are filling out the form for the
Int'l Colored Sport Horse Registry. On the form it says
we need to have a copy of his pedigree or registration and registration numbers and colors
of horses in the blood lines before submitting the forms.
Without this he is only eligible for color stock papers? Can you tell us how to fill out
this portion of the papers?
