Following on from the pictures of the boys getting a Bank Holiday pampering visit here are some pics of the mares getting some pampering from Richard's grand nieces:

Jazz (Mannog All That Jazz .USA: 2006 : Wa Ha Dar x Mannog April Blues). Tink in the background.

Dixie (Dreaming in Private. USA. 2008: Private B Riker x Exbury Dun Dreaming). Purchased. Not bred by Mannog Stud.

Lily (Mannog Lily The Pink. USA. 2007 : Mannog Moonshadow x GB Elizabeth) Hat for sun/fly screening due to being genuine pure white fewspot despite being double leopard bred!! . Have to protect the pink around eyes and muzzle at all times. Real chunky sort. Pocket powerhouse.

Tink (Im Steel A Zip. USA. 2002 : Zippospots Galore x Code's D Day). Sorrel fewspot. Again needing fly/sun protection for the pink bits!  Powerhouse of a mare as you would expect from a USA import. Great broodmare.

And last but not least the wonderful old girl herself : April patiently waiting her turn. (Mannog April  Blues. USA. 1993: Amazing Blue x Lizzie of Larchmont). Yep that makes her 24 yrs old. Sound, happy, healthy.
