With Gus and Nora gone I moved into my new equine life with my first gaited horse, a Missouri Fox Trotter named Ennis.
We're doing just fine. Thank you
But I kept thinking about those other two. Were they being fed? Was Gus given time to adapt? Was Nora being used to her full potential? So Keith and I took a few hours off last week and dropped in for a surprise visit. Guess what we found?
Two well cared for critters, that's what we found. Good condition, well trimmed feet and pleasant attitudes. Gus, my older guy was easily caught (never for me was he easy) and led up to say hello by his new best friend, the owners young daughter. You could tell by the gentle look in his eyes and her caring touch that they were well connected. I mean anyone with cool wellies like hers had to be OK.
Then it was time to see Nora. She was the one I missed the most because she and I went through the most. 3 full days with Chris Cox about killed both of us. But she too seems to have found herself good home. The young horsewoman were really enjoying her and the owner Bob has plans to show her himself this next year.
All this made me HAPPY. In this crappy economic time when horses are being dumped or neglected or sold for pennies I was so relieved that my old buddies are now someone else's good buddies. Thanks so much to the Switzer Family! http://www.stateparkstables.com/
