Name that horse
I am quite giddy and have little time to blog as I prepare to welcome a new member to our menagerie. He's a registered Haflinger and his acquisition comes via a stunning act of grace and generosity by a dear, dear friend.
We go to pick him up on Sunday but it will be a month before he comes here to live, since we're trailering him straight from his current home to an equestrian center for a month of professional training. After that, he will serve as a not only a family horse but will work part time giving pony rides to visiting children. He will also participate in a therapeutic riding program.
So all the plans are in place. The only thing he lacks is a name. His current owner calls him "Ajax" but that's a bathroom cleanser. Surely we can think of something else.
