On Saturday, Pieper Red Angus held their fall sale. In it were 4 kid horses, some call them pony's, I have always called them shetlins. Anyway, I got a y year old 39 inch gelding for my boys. Should be exciting and fun when they find out, I think I am more excited than anyone. His name is Spanky. Now I just need to figure out how to get him to the ranch. I learned how to ride on one named Lady. Brings back some good memories.

We learned on one named Sugarfoot, I remember her to this day, pinto (paint now days) colored with a real good disposition.

I am sure your boys will be thrilled.

We might be able to help get the critter up your way, but it will be a couple weeks. You should also have the birthday present headed your way.

Those look awesome! He will love them. He is really jealous that his brother already has a pair (from you guys). I have an idea they will be his new jammies :)

My Shetland taught me many a life lesson as a young lad that serve me well to this day. :wink:

Let me guess...Grit, Guts and Determination... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

That pretty well sums it up FH. I suppose you could call it a "character building experience" :lol:

Nonetheless, I still recall how excited and proud I was the day Stumpy showed up, I was living every young cowboys dream by having my own horse. I'm guessing there's going to be some pretty excited boys at BRG's house.

Let the character building begin! :D

How soon do you need him. Maybe I could bring him and come up to the place and look around.

I am not in a hurry, as they won't get to know about it until Christmas anyway, and probably not ride him until spring. I am sure Mark would like to get him out of there though, as I know what it is like after a sale wanting everything to leave ASAP.

Come on up and have a look around, we would love to have ya, just don't come on Nov. 16 - I found out yesterday I have been chosen for Jury Duty then :shock:
