    Sweet dreams! I know Sam will sleep well tonight. I hope he understands he is such a lucky boy!
    So glad you brought him home.

    This is part of an e-mail I sent this morning to Sam's previous owner. While I have omitted specific details, I think it captures how Sam is doing now and closes the story nicely. I am so happy to have him here!!

    I wanted to thank you again for bringing Sam back into our lives. Thank you also for meeting us part way. I know it was not easy, simple or convenient for you to do so and I appreciate it very much. Sam’s ride home was quiet and uneventful. We unloaded at about 9:45 and introduced him to our other two horses. He integrated into my small herd immediately without even so much as a squeal or a kick. All three have been peacefully munching away on the pasture and running together to stretch their legs and avoid the mosquitos. Although I cannot read a horses mind, Sam acts like he knows he is home, and I think he is truly happy.
    While Sam is an amazing horse, it is quite plain that he was ill-suited for your family. He does require a firm, yet gentle hand that he knows he cannot test. I am fortunate to have had such a relationship with him before and as soon as we arrived home, he seemed to revert back to that understanding. I do hope that your daughter has the opportunity to find and fall in love with a horse that is more suited for her size and level of experience. My daughter was slightly older than yours when we sold, and I knew at the time, he was not appropriate for my daughter. Now, things have changed, and my daughter has become quite the horsewoman. I think she and Sam will get along very well.
    The love of horses is like no other as they are amazingly graceful animals that can touch our hearts so deeply. Like people, however, they are all different and challenge us in different ways. As I said, I do hope a horse comes along and touches your family in the same way Sam has touched ours.

    Pics of Sam at home

    Here are some pictures of Sam, now that he is home. I think he is pretty happy here, as he nickers every time I go out to see him. It is tough to get pictures because he comes so fast!

    Sam grazing in the pasture. I forgot how big his feet are! They aren't out of proportion for a horse who is nearly 17 hands though.

    Here are Sam's pasture mates. The grey is my Arab gelding, Koolio (now known as Mr. Jealousy). The bay is my daughter's Appendix mare, Sally.

    Koolio and Sally are adorable!

    And Sam is just plain beautiful. He does look content already. I'm so happy for him, and you!
