Trip to Acorn Hill

Papa and I took a very special and exciting trip this weekend: we drove down to Acorn Hill Farm in Madison, VA to look at some young prospects!  It was a real pleasure to get to visit the farm, which was stunningly gorgeous and fabulously maintained.  The Sweelys were very kind to take us around to look at the young stock, and we certainly weren't disappointed!  We saw dozens of great quality colts and fillies... and may have even found one for me!

Carlow Clover!  What a handsome man.

Some suspicious yearlings eye us from the hill
Led by a Tinka colt, the yearlings come in to inspect us further.  The two Clover foals are standing side by side in the back.
