I am a mom and an RN at MCV Hospital(VCU Healthsystems) my daughter is 6 and my son turns 9 today 8/1/01. I love horses and dogs... we hhave 1 horse, 3 dogs (all rescued), a cat (who found us in the snow 12/09 and a rabbit (I rescued from being rabbit stew. I have been searching for a pony for my daughter for over a year to no avail. Last october I had to put my first horse down. He was a beautiful , blue eyed paint, and the sweetest horse in the world. I did everything from endurance trail rides on him, used him for handicapped riders, showed western and huntseat in the paint circuit, rode in parades and enjoyed miles and miles of trails on him. I moved Buck and Wizard(another blue eyed paint) home with me in May of 2004 just before my daughter was born. After 16 years of boarding it was nice to have them at home. Buck fought a long hard battle with persistent sarcoids. He had several surgeries and I went through countless can of BluKote, peroxide and betadine. The vet told me he lived to 26 due my excellent care but this did not stop me from crying for days. I still cry now because he was so special to me. Since Wizard was so lonely my friend insisted on moving him to her farm. I miss him as does my whole family, but he is happy in a 100 acre field eating 24/7. I will always love horses and paints will always hold a special place in my heart. I would love to find a pony for my daughter, so she does not have to wait until she is 26, like I did =))) Hope to see your farm soon !!!!!!
