    I am bursting with pride over LEA Poetica winning both her Oro and Bronce awards after showing less than two full seasons. I am so lucky to have this special girl in my life and I want to thank Roberto Quiandria for allowing me to be her “mom” and Barbara Windom for breeding such a wonderful mare. She is the love of my life.
