Unfortunately, things don't always work out the way you want them to. Today we unexpectedly had to say goodbye to Fabiola van het Hermeshof, we found her in shock yesterday on the fields and decided to take her home straight away (after the vet had given her the first care). Despite the necessary care she didn't make it through the night. The cause is (partly due to the speed of the circumstances) unknown. She will be missed in the stable and in the fields.

Today, Mirhynne van het Hermeshof participated in the renowned agricultural competition of Vilvoorde. She achieved a good third place in the strong category of the 2 year old mares.
