In early 2018, Mrs. Lisa Frulla of CB Farm introduced us to Mr. G Nome. He became a valued member of the Cavallo Team but unfortunately, missed his ride home from Jr. Hunter Finals. Fortunately, the kind staff of Foxcroft School facilitated his return to Va but kept him hostage for much of the rest of 2018. Mr. G Nome was returned to us and has been overseeing activities at the farm for the past couple of months. This past weekend he wanted to return to the horse show world so he hopped a ride to Lexington and was pleasantly surprised that he was next to his two favorite farms - Cavallo and Foxcroft. He kept an vigilant eye on both Cavallo and Foxcroft horses but, during that time, he suffered some injuries and must have had quite a few wild adventures. Any information as to what befell Mr. G Nome, would be appreciated. We are optimistic he will have fully recovered before the Encore and will be ready to resume his duties!
