Meet the new pony- Sheldon's Crusader! He passed his vetting Wednesday afternoon and came home late Wednesday evening. I didn't want to mention anything on the blog until all the details were confirmed, but now that the deed is done it's time to spill the beans ;)
Sheldon is a 2007 model TB that came off the track at the end of November. He was picked up by a young lady who's putting herself theough school by flipping young horses, and she gave him some downtime at her farm before trying to find him a home. Due to the fact that we've still got snow and sub zero temperatures up here, Sheldon hasn't done a heck of a lot since he raced, as she didn't have an jndoor. He's proven himself to be a good trail horse though, and during the two rides in which she shipped him out to an indoor he behaved like a real gentleman.
