|(taken from FB, NOT Prophecy!)|
Welcome home Bold Prophecy...After a much longer transport than anticipated, you arrived just after midnight! A brief time of stretching and munching some grass and then I put him up in a stall for the night with hay and water. Most of the pictures I took do not do him justice due to the lighting so here is the best one :)
He will get a chance to stretch and relax a few days, and then we will begin. He's got a great base under saddle with a trainer and the previous owner, but I am going back to basics for the relationship/bond. While he is "bred for endurance", we are going to take it slow and see where we end up. I'm hoping to get to rides this fall and drag ride/volunteer to get him used to the commotion, likely waiting on an actual completion ride till 2017.
Overall, the past week/end has been a roller-coaster of emotions... First, a surprise set of fabric prints of pictures of my boys came with my order from Equi-Royals to put on a quilt or pillow. Then, I received the bracelet I ordered made from Tesla's tail hair on Thursday.
And together on me constantly....
Friday I also received a letter that our vet who treated Tesla 2x that day before moving us to the emergency clinic had sent a donation into Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine in his name.
And throughout the week I was working on cleaning tack anticipating the arrival of Prophecy.
