The great thing Wallaby, is that Nelson and I are back at the very barn where he started.
The BO's Husband *R.I.P* bought Nelson at the age of 2 off the track. He bought a stock trailer full of TB's and brought them to his farm, which is where we are boarding now.
The BO says she has lots of pictures of Nelson when he was a Young Whipper Snapper, and I am excited to see them! And, I hear this all the time...."Oh that's Nelson! I used to ride him when he was 3" or "OH MY GOD, THAT'S NELSON! I remember him when he was *insert age here*" and on and on and on.
I get so jealous, because I wish I knew Nelson when he was much younger. I'd give anything to of been his first and only owner.
My next horse, I am going to get young, so that when they reach Nelson's age, I can say I knew that horse from the start to the finish.
Oh - and yeah - Nelson is a Senior, but he acts like he's 3 again....especially on Fox Hunts.
