For those of you who have been following Murphy, we have been working towards attending the Rheinhald Pfalz-saar International Inspection. This registry organization was founded in 1995 and is designed to control the quality of sport horse that is produced in North America.
Mackenzie, Murphy’s mom, was also inspected and was added into Mare book I! Fantastic because this makes her more desirable as a brood mare. Mac’s owner and I picked Mackenzie out at as yearling and now here she is a six year old with Murphy by her side. Or at least close behind! This is a full circle moment for those of us who have been there since the beginning.
Here is a shot of Murphy’s stunning trot! They both behaved so beautifully at the event, we couldn’t have asked for more. Murphy also did his best ever loading performance. He literally jumped straight into the trailer at the end of the day with no coaxing. I think he was ready to go home and take a good long nap! Murphy received a premium silver rating which is just below the cut off for a gold. We were thrilled! Of course we will always consider him a gold and accept the fact that we are biased. : )
