On a Happier Note...

While down in Joplin I got to see Ringo, Larry's 2007 colt that Sandra owns. He is now 1 year, 5 months old and he is a big, handsome hunk of horse :) Sandra takes such good care of her horses and Ringo is glowing with health.

I am so thankful to her that she has worked with him, taken care of him and is giving him a job so even in the future if she can't keep him, he will have a good chance to have a home. She never gets on her horses before two, but she does believe in teaching them a lot on the ground, including how to lay down. She does such a good job with him--he trusts her completely and she has earned it, and they have a true mutual respect for each other.

Sandra told me that Ringo (she calls him Colton) is built exactly like a champion barrel racer she knew, so we are hoping Ringo will be as successful. In any case, she really enjoys him, he is happy and healthy, and I couldn't be prouder of him!
