An Anniversary Of Sorts ...

Recognize this rather large beast? OK, I know his face is hidden, but go ahead, take a guess.

This is that horse that stepped off a trailer four months ago, bleeding, hobbling and awfully skinny. With crappy feet and a broken sinus bone. You remember, the goofball who was afraid to go in his own stall. The horse that took thirty minutes to go 10 feet.

He's put on a few pounds since then. And got a new haircut today. It's his "hunter/jumper cut". The broken down too slow Thoroughbred is in training with a new trainer to do low level dressage. The trainer who keeps blathering on about "excellent conformation", "a beautiful mind", "phenomenal movement."

Did ya guess? Huh? Yeah ... it's my BooBoo.

    Awwww..BooBoo cleans up good!!! Isn't it amazing what a little care and attention will do? He's just amazing. And I'm thrilled that he's going to be doing Dressage. For all his early awkwardness, I always thought he had a certain gentle dignity.

    Sheepies do not have gentle dignity. We just clomp around and eat the hedges.)

    He looks great! Handsome and healthy. And I'm sure, happy. He's gorgeous and you should be proud of both of you.

    Wow, he's looking terrific!

    Doesn't it feel good to have brought him this far? You'll be so happy with him as time goes on.

    Horsey hugs to Victor!
