New Home

We sold Thumper last night.  He has pretty much been for sale for the last 4 years, but I didn't get really serious about it until this year.  
 We got him 5 years ago for J to ride, but they just didn't work together.  (He looked kind of scrawny back then)
 I would ride him a few times each year to keep him tuned up but that was about it.
 Last year we took him to a couple of shows so that could go on his resume.
 He even won a couple of blue ribbons in the process.
It seemed like anyone that showed interest in him wanted a trail horse.  So I concentrated on that this year.  And what better way to make a trail horse that to take him on an endurance ride.  All of the extra riding paid off in a much better broke horse. Here's a link to the video that the buyer fell in love with you tube. He said he and his friend studied it all day.   A bitter sweet day, after all of that riding someone else will get to enjoy him.  I guess now I can concentrate more on Brother, Otoelene and now getting Hank in condition for a possible endurance ride in Kentucky in October.
Happy trails Thumper.

Let me tell you, if I had the money for another horse I would have been first in line to buy. I have a really huge fondness for Bays. :) He is beautiful!!!!! Glad he found a good home!

We want them to go and then we are sad for them to go. Feeling those same things today. Our horse, Bobbi is leaving this afternoon. Congrats on selling yours.
