The Rest of the Story

It’s Here!  The complete Washington Post article is out! 

I haven’t ridden much this week, besides the Monday Mosey.  Last night, I concentrated on giving some attention to “Cecil,” a new guy who came in with a bowed tendon.  Owned by some awesome people, they also sent along enough money to cover the two months of stall rest he’d need before getting turn out. 

Also upcoming, I’m determined to get “Wek” the credit she deserves.  She’s been on our website for what seems like forever- a big knee and some weakness behind seems to be creating a certain lack of interest.  But when I went to see her the other day, I realized she’s grown.  And she’s not just big (read: needs a diet) but she’s pretty fabulous and quiet.  So if I can figure out how to cram more into my days, you will soon be getting Wek reports as well as Rosey-rundowns.

And, well, since there’s not much more to say today, I’ll close with the best description of Rose ever:

“Rosey, a thoroughbred, canters through a left-hand turn like, well, a thoroughbred: head high, eyes proud, locomotive haunches driving ballerina legs.”

Yep… that’s our girl 🙂  Thanks WaPo!

updated to add:  now you get our super-duper-extra-sized thanks, WaPo, for putting the CANTER story on the FRONT page of your website!  We’re in front of the election coverage!
