Saturday started out with lost of potential to be great! I went to a schooling show (Jumpers) with Ophie's mom. It was nice to see her and to catch up. I miss sharing a barn with her. She had to leave to go have a lesson on Ms. Ophie, but I stuck around to watch a few more classes. As I was about to leave I saw one of my favorite horses from the Giant Warmblood barn. His rider asked me if I knew anything about Pete (Pete the horse I love on at the GWB.) Apparently another boarder told her that she saw him on craigslist for free. (Heart sink.)
Do you know what happens to very large, free, somewhat unsound,head shaking, older horses? Well. As far as I know the list of great homes for pasture pets is non-existent. A beautiful mare just pulled out of the kill pen with three days to go before she ships. Nothing wrong with her, just bad luck. Come to find out she use to do the Hunter Circuit (A) in the Pacific North West. I am so worried for him. I've searched craigslist high and low for the ad and can't find it.
So either A. She was wrong.
B. The owner had a change of heart.
C. Someone is taking him.
I am so worried about my large red friend. He's so sweet, but is so light sensitive his whole head goes, and it has been getting worse.
