Shout Out

I just wanted to give a shout out to the next new thing in the Draft World Domination Master Plan: Boomer! Check out his blog and give Janine all the appreciation and support she needs to succeed with her big boy. He's young, but he's getting a good start. Welcome, Janine!

As for Brego, he is in week two of his "Pro" training and the feedback thus far has been very positive. He's lazy and out of shape (no kidding!) but he's very smart, according to my trainer. When Hobby's mom goes out to pick him up today and bring him home for the weekend, she will hopefully get some picture of him under saddle. Of course, I will share them as soon as I get them.

On the New England front, I visited a barn just 5 miles from my temporary home and it is Perfect. Warm, friendly people, competitive, but very relaxed. Pasture board with an indoor and lots of outdoor trails. They are also very accommodating, I will be able to continue feeding Brego his obsessive compulsive-induced diet. In short, I am so thrilled and lucky to finally find a good home until I can buy a farm. And I only had to travel 2,000 miles to find it!!

The housing market in Central Texas is still relatively strong (hang in there, fellow distressed horse people), so hopefully my house will sell and I will bring Brego up the second week of April. Nothing is finalized yet, but I would love to get him here sooner than May. The trip up, including several stops at National Parks for trail riding, is already being planned. I can't wait to get back in the saddle again.

I apologize again for the slow posting of the blog. I will post more as the plans get finalized.

Wow - thanks for the shout out! Haha. Boomer is very appreciative. :) Can't wait for new pictures of Brego! I love the ones from your dressage lesson below. I definitely need to get a better camera.

Congratulations on finding a perfect barn!
