Fleeceworks Fernhill, a 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare owned by Judy McSwain and ridden by Tamie Smith, is currently in foal to Gaspard De La Nuit DG and is expecting her first foal on April 11. This exciting stallion standing at DG Bar Ranch in California is by the famed dressage stallion, Ravel — definitely a fancy cross of breeding!
Fleeceworks Fernhill has competed through the Intermediate level with Tamie in the irons and has a CCI* win under her belt at Rebecca Farm in 2011. She last competed in 2013 before turning to motherhood as her new career.
As we all know, though, due dates can be considered more of a guideline, so we decided to team up with our newest EN sponsor, Fleeceworks, to run a fun contest for our readers. We’re inviting you to guess Fern’s due date, as well as the sex of the foal for your chance to win a brand new Bamboo Contour Cross Country Pad from Fleeceworks.
The new bamboo pads align with Fleeceworks’ philosophy of manufacturing saddle pads that support and facilitate muscle function. Fleeceworks uses natural fibers to prevent conditions that diminish performance through back soreness, and bamboo is a sustainable fabric.
The Easy Care line features a layer of bamboo that provides additional support without bulk and draws the sweat off the horse’s back. Fleeceworks quilted pads, which have never used foam filler, will also now have a bamboo layer quilted next to the cotton poly underside.
To enter to win, simply email your due date guess and sex choice to [email protected]. As a tiebreaker, please include the time you think the foal will be born. Entries will close on April 5, so get your entries in soon! We’ll announce the winner as soon as Fern has her foal.
