It's been a while since I have updated this blog. The holidays have come and gone and its a new year. My incentive horse is coming along beautifully and has a new adoptive home (more on that in an upcoming entry). Patriot is doing well and has had the winter off. He is turned out to pasture with other horses his age, fully recovered from the lesson of the dominant mare. It is too cute to see him playing stallion games with the other geldings in the pasture. Little does he know, but his loafing days are almost over. I have him signed up for that trail clinic he missed last fall due to that kick. February will be a busy month for my fuzzy pasture ornament.
What I wanted to talk about today is the Western States Mustang Challenge - June 6-8, 2008 - being held in California. The entries are due for this event in a week and I am considering participation. I am torn as I would like to do the big event in Texas, as well, however, California is SOO much closer.
However, my biggest dilemma is actually a problem I want your help in solving. Since I do not want nor need to keep the horse I get for this event (and you KNOW I will), I wanted to see if anyone out there is interested in adopting this horse and line up to be the high bidder BEFORE I head to California? I would really like to get to know the potential new owner of this horse, rather than hand him over to the highest unknown bidder. Would that be too much to ask?? :) Please spread the word. I am thinking I will only enter if I know that I have a prearranged home for the new guy. Can you help?
