    Our Round-up club had an event back in October, and they were selling chances on a 12 yo quarter horse to raise money for a local charity called Helping Hooves, that help children with developmental and physical disabilities with equine therapy. Well, they called today, and we WON the horse! [​IMG] We are still in shock! [​IMG] I have been calling everyone I know to tell them! [​IMG] LOL! The kids are already fighting over him, but I think I might keep him for myself! [​IMG]

    Here is the link if anyone is interested in seeing him:


    He is a fleabitten gray, 12 yo gelding. Trained in dressage and western pleasure. They were riding him bareback with the nylon rope halter (no bit) at the event.

    I am especially excited because we just got my horse back from the trainer this weekend, and she didn't do well. [​IMG] He said she'll be fine for a few days, or a week, then throw you and roll on you, so I don't want anyone riding her. I think she'll just be my shadow, like she has been since I got her. I may try a female trainer and see if she does better.

    Anyway, just wanted to share my exciting news!

    YAY! [​IMG]

    WON???? to me winning a horse would be a bad thing.....[​IMG]

    congrats......enjoy the hay burner.

    I did look at his picture, for a horse, he does look pretty. Says he unloads easily. Unloading up here is not a good thing unless you need the manure......[​IMG]
