2018 , for us, is a new beginning for
some aspects and a continuation for others.
Susie will be retiring after 45 years
in business. She hopes to spend time admiring the accomplishments that Jessica
Cavanaugh is achieving with Cosmos Double Oh Seven in the Morgan Park division.
Also, following a life-long dream with her reining prospect, Cosmos Technicolor.
She always wanted to play with a reining/working horse and she will now have
time to enjoy this young palomino.
2017 SHOW SEASON
girls showed in their last show at the Jericho Morab Show in Elkhorn, WI
less than a mile from our exit to go to the show grounds, when we had a blowout
on our trailer. Luckily we were able to limp to the showgrounds and get our tire
replaced. In a way, it was a fortunate-misfortune, as in two weeks Susie would
be traveling to the Morgan Nationals in Oklahoma City. We would rather have a
flat tire close to home than in the middle of nowhere and unfamiliar
surroundings. The following Monday after the show, we had 4 new tires put on the
flat tire did not deter the success and fun of the girls. Abigail Hinze ended up
with Reserve High Point Youth, Reserve High Point Morgan, and Overall Reserve
High Point on Saturday. Super job for her first year in the pleasure classes
from moving up last year in the walk trot classes!
Allport who was showing Cosmos Thunder Gone Wild ended up with Reserve Champion
Morgan on Sunday! This was Leslieís first show with Cosmos Thunder Gone Wild and
also the first show for the mare. Great Job Leslie!

the first time on Cosmos Vigilante, Airi Rich with Cosmos Arbor Mist and Mikayla
