Thanks for all the info A---- i really appreciate it. I love him dearly and he is a favorite around the barn. I showed him all last year and he did wonderful he was champion or reserve champion in the AA hunters at all but one show. They where mostly B shows but the competition is stiff around here. He did really well in the Eq too 5th overall at the cloverleaf medal finals out of 22 riders. He is the most easy going boy I started riding him and jumping him on the wire (My roommate was on the drill team at fox field) about 6 months ago and he loves it and I completely trust him. He is the token trail horse at the barn. When my cousins or friends family come into town they are always asking to borrow Billy for a lesson or trail ride because he is so tolerant and forgiving. We have just been hanging out and trail riding for the last couple months to take a vacation from the showing. He really likes acupuncture and the chiropractor is gets very sleepy. he is best buds with my mom's warmblood and enjoys a turnout with him every once in a while.I have always believed there was that one horse out there for me that I would truly connect with and I believe that Billy is that horse. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to own such a wonderful horse I love him dearly and will have him forever. I hope that one day my children will get as much joy from him as both you and I.There are pictures of us on Diana fields photography and Naismith photography under Damascus if you want to see pictures of him in action. Take care and keep in touch. Brook
I went and looked at his pictures and he is the same old Billy, knees square, ears flopping around.
I'm glad that he found a home that seems to suit him so well - although I loved him very much and was quite attached, I realize now that there came a point between the two of us where I just wanted something different than he was able to give and he wanted something different than I was willing to give.
This does not mean that I don't find the situation utterly heart breaking. I really, really miss him and I really, really miss riding.
