Close to four years ago, I was called up by my client Mike Boyd, to visit his farm just north of Guelph. His mare Remy, had foaled. The foal was named Espresso B. The morning before, another mare on the property foaled. Tragically, she died as a result of the birth. On the day of my farm visit, Mike’s mare Remy, was nursing both foals. She had accepted the orphan foal as her own. It was truly inspiring to see such a sight.
Espresso B, by Earl is growing up to be a jumper. Mike aptly named his commission ‘Future Grand Prix Jumper at Rest’. If his placing 2nd in the 2007 Eastern Canadian Free Jumping Competition is any indication of his future, he will be headed there in a few years.
