The Autumn

The Autumn has come prematurely with dark clouds, sharp winds and heavy rain. For two days all horses remained under the roof of their shelter not daring to go to pasture. Only this morning we saw the sun again. The only advantage of this kind of weather are mushrooms:

Great Paddock at last...

Today we have completed fencing of our Great Paddock, so our horses could move to the fresh grass. They don't look very interesting while eating:

but we enjoy with them! It wasn't a piece of cake to fence about 10 hectars of land:


and we still have much to do to finish it up.

I am sorry for not keeping to my promise of regular writing here. However, we had little good news past few months and I was in no mood to write in English. Will try to improve :-)

No success either...

Girls were checked again after their second holidays with Germes. No results. Both in an advanced heat, near the end. So, the next turn in less than three weeks...

Both empty

Melesugun and Osman Guli were checked. Both empty. Saturday we are coming back to Germes.

Osman Guli

About a week ago we have built a roundpen at our farm. Yesterday we have started to exercise our just returned Tekes. As it looked well, today Dalia took some pictures from my work with Osman Guli. Of course it was much worse than without the camera. However I like these pics:













Introduction

Hi. My name is Jacek Kobus. Together with my girlfriend Dalia we hold a property of about 16 ha in central Poland, 80 km south of Warsaw, country's capital near a village called "Boska Wola". Our passion is Akhal-Tekes. We have three pure blood mares: Melesugun, Osman Guli and Margire. Clicking at their names you may see pedigrees and galleries for each of them.

Melesugun and Osman Guli just have returned from Petra's farm in Czech Republic, where they were covered by Germes. In about a week I should know the results of this expedition. Margire is in training at Warsaw's racetrack. However, since we are already sure that no race for pure blood akhal-tekes will be conducted at Pardubice this year due to small number of interested horse owners, we should decide her future now. I will inform about the outcome.

I invite you to my English website. However, since the time we have settled in a countryside it is difficult for me to update my home page often. It requires too much data traffic for my fragile and week internet connection. Therefore I have developed a blog. As it consists variety of topics, including history, politics and philosophy, all of them of little interest for English speaking public this, even translated into English, can't really replace the home page. Therefore, I start this blog, as a form of week-to-week (I hope) information platform about my Tekes for general public. As my English is no better than average Central European graduate's, it is natural, that I will stress on publishing the photos. I hope, you will enjoy them at least :-) Please feel free to comment or ask any question.
