He sounds like an amazing horse! I love vaulting, it's such a cool sport. There seem to be some horses that just thrive on it. We had a gelding like that, he was constantly grumpy when being ridden or handled by adults, but he loved the little vaulting kids, the more the better :)
Good luck in AB, big guy, hope you like it here.

well, that's it he shipped out this morning. I almost cried when I got home form work, I know once I go back to ranch and he's not there I'll lose it. He's gonna be SO happy though so it's bitter sweet, never going to have to walk in circles again, have kids flopping around on his back again, he can just graze and be loved.

Handsome boy!
Sounds like Sam is worth his weight in gold. I'm sure his new family will absolutely love him to pieces! :)

Well we received word that the big guy arrived safe and sound at his new home, and in the middle of a thunder storm too but did Sampson care? Nope! He strut about the farm like he was young again.
