I think it's pretty cool what they can do with them in such a short period of time.
I'm a little surprised they got 50,000 for him, but that's still pretty awesome.

They got 50K for him partly because they had been bidding against themselves and didn't know it. Ray was trying to buy the horse and the city ended up buying him for the city mascot and gave the horse back to Ray to control. Ray did not know that they were gifting it back to him and was upset when he couldn't afford to buy the horse.

There was a TV special about it. Finally after several broken hearts of trainers they tried to get the general bidders to quit bidding so that the trainers could buy their horse back at the auction.

Proof that every horse has potential to be great. He's got a ways to go, but I'll be darned if he doesn't do some of those maneuvers better than most of our horses! Crazy, because I would of never picked a little mud-brown horse like that to go so far in only 100 days...

that's awesome, but not surprizing to me, goes to show that you don't have to be a pure bred horse to be famous. :)

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I loved watching Hail Yeah in the EMM.

I also stumbled across this horse on FB, he is (very) successfully competing in some USDF dressage competitions.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
