    Some of you will remember shortly after Hugs arrived in NZ I was naughty and bought another prospect in Australia. FP Sniper has been in training with a fabulous trainer (Top money earner in Australia 3 or 4 years in a row) since September, however we have just switched trainers due to his previous going to USA unfortunately. We now have him closer to his breeder who is also our Australian agent so finally got new photos! They new trainer is lovely, and also a 5 time futurity winner and well respected so looking forward to working with him.

    He will be having a proper photoshoot in a few weeks, and I will update with more pics, but we are happy with how he is turning out so far :)

    Snipers at his first big show this weekend with an Open Futurity tonight, but was Co Champion in the Beginner horse the other day so I am super thrilled! Any time the Tobianos can keep up or even nearly keep up to the QH's is a great step for the paints!

    Well Sniper had a lovely run. Calm and cool, and looked the part! A few too many steps backwards after the spins unfortunately got us a 0, but with no penalties he was a 142.5 so the talent is in there! Improving each run he has done all weekend, and looking forward to the next show for him in July.
