Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Foxhounds Hunt from Windurra

Silva and I were honored last Tuesday when Mr Stewart's Cheshire Fox Hounds met in our cross-country field. It was a perfect day to ride around the countryside.  We are very lucky that our farm is located right next door to 3,000 acres of protected land that is in the Brandywine Conservancy, and thankful that the owners of this beautiful land allow us to ride across it.

I was well mounted for the hunt with Minotaure du Passior, the winner of the 2011 Bromont three day event.  Amy Lindgren has been very kind to leave Min with us since his retirement from eventing.  He has been doing the dressage circuit with Silva's students, and hunts with me through the winter.

Annie Jones
It was great to see some of the eventing supporters out hunting, with Shamwari syndicate member Doug Howe out, along with Annie Jones whom has supported Phillip for many years.

The hunt was led by legendary Irish Huntsman Ivan Dowling, backed up by 4-star eventing glamour gal Steph Boyer as Whipper-in!  It was a super morning of riding, and was a real treat that Windurra was part of it!

Come Jump at Windurra and Get "Boyd Bucks" Towards Great Purina Rewards!

Boyd and Silva are very proud to be part of the Purina team, due to the deep history behind this company and the research that is put into each one of their products.  Both the dressage horses and event horses are kept in exceptional conditioning due to the nutrients in the Ultium line of feed.  The product is rich in nutrients, allowing us to feed less while keeping all of our horse's top lines looking fabulous and their muscle definition in solid form.

The crew from our local Oxford Feed and Lumber plan to be at the jumper show on Thursday with "Boyd Bucks", their form of coupons that can be exchanged at their store in Oxford for official Purina Bucks to be used towards prizes at their December 10th promotion!

FEED YOUR HORSES PURINA, LIKE BOYD DOES— Take this Purina “Boyd” Buck to Oxford Feed & Lumber or Brandywine Ace Pet & Farm and exchange it for real “Purina Bucks”! Collect Purina Bucks from Oct. 1—Nov. 30 on all your purchases of branded Purina feeds at either location. Then, join us on Dec. 10 at our big celebration and use your “bucks” to bid on an array of great prizes! For more details, see our website, or on Facebook.

So take advantage of this great deal, come out Thursday and meet our friends from Purina at our Schooling Stadium Show, and go home with some Boyd Bucks to use towards great prizes!!  FUN
