Good things come to those who wait...

And I will apologize for making you wait so long--life got in the way!  All the stall mucking, fencing and earning money only to watch the four-footers gobble it down sure does take up time!  But, you will be glad you waited!  'Cause we have NEWS!!!!!

For those who haven't already heard, Devil, Yankee and Jake have all been adopted!  Hooray!  We still have Chance, Wyatt, Lily and Jane in foster.  If you are in the market for a horse, maybe you want to swing on over and have a look....Lily and Jane are both lovely girls, great to work around and ready to go home with some lovely family.  Chance has undergone a personality transplant and, from being a loveable grump, has been transformed into a loving, follow you around like a labrador kind of guy. He has plenty of energy, and he has a lovely trot and lope, not too fast, not too slow (perfect for those of us who are slowing down ourselves.).  Wyatt's ankle is straightening out and he is ready to start learning how to be someone's buddy on the trails.  So, please, check them out!

As always, we are constantly on the lookout for people with an extra stall or two and some space in their heart for a horse that needs a second chance.  Could that be you?

And now for some pictures.  This young lady is on our courtesy page until we have another stall open up.  Her name is Missy, she is 6 years old and she retired from racing about a year ago because she was too slow.

What a lovely face! This lady has excellent barn manners and has already spent 3 months under saddle, so the hard work is already done.

You can see here how she is put together.  Typical of off track Standardbreds, she will need some work to build up the top of her neck, but she's obviously got lots of room to breathe with those wide nostrils.

Side on, you can really see what a nice little mare she is.  Imagine what she would look like after a few months practice collecting herself and building up the muscles in her hindquarters!

The owner really needs the stall and he is hoping we can help him find a good home for her, as he is very fond of her.  Because she is a courtesy listing, if you are interested, just drop us a line and we will send you her owner's contact information, so you can go see her in person.

That's all for now!  I'm hoping to score some pictures of the adopted babies in the near future and we'll have a post to show them all off! Until then, don't forget to hug your horses!
