Also here is an email from her that she sent some while back before she knew she had to find him a new home...he is quite a nice colt from mind to body to breeding I assure you!


Just wanted to give you an update on Bentley. He saw the farrier for the first time! Now this was a few weeks ago. Mid Jan they are due again. But I wanted to let you know what a champ he was. Our farrier brought out two journeymen with him this time. I was anxiously waiting for them to get done with my mare so I could get Bentley out.

Our farrier asked me to go get Bentley and bring him to where we were shoeing my mare. I was a bit anxious. She gets hot shoes. So the furnace was on, one JM was burning the shoes and then tweaking them if needed, the second one was then tacking them on...ect. There was a LOT going on. Our place is fairly quiet so I was a bit worried, being the worry wart mom that I am, Bentley would get upset.

He was pleasant as ever when I haltered him up. We started the walk over and he hesitated for one second but quickly caught back up with me. No snorting No blowing No whites of his eyes showing. Just a "Whoa" look on his face. When the farrier asked for his feet he gave them willingly. The only tugging he did is when he started to lose his balance. Poor guy had to be going through a growing spurt when they were gonna trim him. One of the JM came over practically laid across his back with his arm over his back supporting Bentleys belly and the other around his chest neck area. His face was along side Bentleys neck almost to his ears. Not one bit of fuss from him. He sighed a sigh of relief and relaxed. He didn't have to work so hard to balance. You would of thought he has been doing this for years. No fuss with the nipping or the rasping. The farrier even tapped his feet as if he was nailing on a shoe. He took it like a pro.

The farrier was extremely impressed. He was expecting a bit of a fight from him. The last few youngsters he did were horrible. Trying to kick, rear, you name it they gave it a go. Not Little baby B. He listened so well to me and was so willing to please. I have to give some kudos to the farrier. He was GREAT with Bentley. He took his time. Didn't rush one bit. If Bentley was getting off balance he would let him adjust then go back to work.

I just wanted to say we couldn't be happier with this lil guy. He has been a peach to work with. Nothing fazes him. I cant put what I want on his back and he can care less. We've been introducing anything and everything we can to him. Mostly due to my curiosity. I cant get over how trusting he is. On top of that he is sharp. He catches on quick. He constantly keeps me on my toes. Once he has something down. He has it and is ready for more. This boy is going to be an exciting one to watch grow.

Thanks again for such a wonderful colt. He speaks wonders for his sire and dam. Really great breeding.
