Thanks! Last year at this time was so stressful, with Salty's eye, and then Hoot arriving in terrible condition. It was so overwhelming and disconcerting. We even paid for a consult with an equine attorney. I'm glad it worked out and we put forth the time, money and effort to get them both healthy and happy.
Our trusted trainer told us, at different times, to put them both on a trailer and send them back to the horse trader sellers. I'm glad we didn't, because Hoot is the best horse we could have found for my daughter.
Salty and I are headed for a 2 hour mini clinic at a 3-day horse expo tomorrow. Instead of being nervous, I'm looking forward to showing off my beautiful, brave, athletic one-eyed wonder horse!
Truly, what a difference a year makes!
