new CANTER horse!

I am so excited, you would think it was for me.  I just like new toys!
Remember my client who got screwed over by the local (new) trainer with the nice TB, who changed the price after they had a deal?
Well, that client found a horse on CANTER that she really liked, and she was taking a business trip near the breeder's farm where he was hanging out so she went to see him.
He arrives at the barn on Friday!  He has been a pasture horse for a couple of years so he is a little rough looking, but he is built like a jumper.  His breeder says they bred way too many mares to his sire, all of them were flops on the track but lots of them have done well in show jumping and eventing.  (This is also the story of Scotty's sire, remind me sometime).  I wouldn't call him a total flop, he did win some money, just not enough to pay his way. 
He is on his way, arrives at a to be determined time on Friday and starts his new life.
His present life includes rolling in the mud.  His past life included some winning shots at the finish line.  See one here:


  1. Whoo Hoo! I'm always happy for anyone who gets a new horse. What an exciting time for your friend.

  2. He looks like a real cutie! Much better in the pic you have of him, in spite of the mud :P Looks a little behind the vertical w his front legs on the win pics, but much nicer here. Hence why you don't buy a horse sight unseen I suppose... can't wait to hear more about him!

  3. How exciting! Can't wait to hear updates. You know I <3 ottb's.

  4. Nice bone! I can't wait to see him change!
