How We Met

I was boarding Dream at a stable. Well we had talked to the owners and they wanted to start a pony herd, which was great since there were two POAs coming soon.
The showed up one day just as I was going to leave. Monty came off first. His halter didn’t fit and he was scared to death. The guy leading him was half dragging him to add to the effect. The stallion handler came over and got him from the trailer guy and tied him up over by the wash rack. I left, figuring that I would deal with things in the morning. Well the herd plan hadn’t worked out, Hannah, Monty’s half sister, had freaked out and attacked Dream. Now they had them in stall with Dream in the middle. I would give Monty a pet or two as I groomed and tacked up Dream, but never did much with him.
After a while they finally got them to live a paddock together, it was small, but it worked. Around then, Monty and Hannah’s owner’s grand daughter quit showing up, I guessed she had given up trying to train him, even with a trainer’s help. So I felt sorry for him and groomed him now and then.
Then one day I went and got Dream, I noticed Monty wasn’t eating, which was strange, but I decided not to do anything then, maybe he was just tired. By the time I was done with Dream Monty still hadn’t eaten and wasn’t himself at all. So I talked to the barn owner and we brought him some sweet feed over which he also refused. So we took him in to be examined. It was decided he got too cold and had coliced. So even though I didn’t own him and didn’t expect to, I hand walked him for a few hours. He had fully recovered by the next day, but wore a blanket overnight. The barn owner told me his owner was planning to sell him, and wondered if we were interested. At first the answer was no, but I started working with him and after a talk with his sick owner, who had come out randomly one day and saw my working with him, he decided to get him. His owner had been glad I was working with him, he was two, but barely halter broke and she felt bad for not giving him the attention he needed, even though she just couldn‘t. Now, not quite a year later, I am riding him without a problem.

Meano got to do something for the new year that many of us don't get to do. She got to go to a wonderful new home today that has many other horses that are in her class. She is now part of a quarter horse ranch that raises and shows halter horses. She will be missed dearly (especially by me, I haven't been able to stop crying since she left) but I know she is in good hands and she will finally be able to do what she was bred for: show. She seemed to show an instant bond with her new owner, and that is something that you cannot replace. I'll leave her website on for a few more weeks or so, so that everyone can say goodbye....The new owner promised to keep me updated and I also have her website address, so if anyone is curious I can keep them up to date as I find out. Here's one last vote from Meano....Thanks for being a good friend to her!

Come visit me, ♥ ~Prissy~ ♥.
