Alfredton + Goodbye Alfie

Alfie sold on Friday, so Saturday was Mum's last show on him - and they really made it a great one. They won the Southey cup for turnout and then went on to win Champion Hack of the show. Alfie had lots of attention too, as Mum had Aki and Doreen with her and between them his tail was well and truly brushed out by the end of the day:
The judge had very positive things to say about Alfie's way of going - and commented that next year he will really shine.
So while it's very sad for Mum to be saying goodbye to Alfie, this will give her more time to focus on jumping with Gem. Alfie's new owner is based in Christchurch - and he will be making his way over the ditch tomorrow!
