On these few web-pages, there are pictures of the people and animals who share, or have shared, Sunny Days Hanoverians with me. On the “News” page you’ll find occasional notes on what’s happening with my horses and my family, and references to the horsepeople who have taken my babies to live with them.
If you are interested in learning more about any of my sale foals or horses, it is safer to call, as, unfortunately, I find that some emails go astray – filtered out, or being systematized as “trash”. I apologize for any emails to which I have not responded, but through experience I’ve learned that they occasionally do not reach me.
