Did Guinness meet the right Person? Oh Yeah he did!
Our sweet Guinness has been adopted by the best human possible, Ms. Heather! It had to be fate. Guinness had been passed over dozens of times. He had been pushed aside and thought that he would be difficult to train. I did not believe so, I believed Guinness to be a diamond, and that he had been patiently waiting for the right person, "HIS" person, to come along, the person he could call his very own who would love him forever more, and provide him with a forever home. Well, he could not have been a luckier boy!! He found Heather, and Heather fell head-over-heels in love with him. Pretty darn quickly I might add!!
The only 'slightest' flaw was that Guinness was going to be solo, no other ponies to keep him company. I was thinking/debating on that flaw for a bit. I wondered if maybe (just maybe) that would help his training in the beginning, as well as their bonding. Before I made my concerns known, Heather talked to me about providing comfort to Guinness in the form of a friendly face. So, she also "adopted" Guinness's pasture mate, Bulmer. Not only would Guinness have company, but he would have a familiar and friendly face who would always and forever keep him company!! If that isn't an amazing gesture of compassion, I do not know what is!
The boyz are now at their new home and blossoming! Guinness has demonstrated that he has had some training, and it has taken the right person with a gentle hand to show that. They are going to be amazing horses for Heather, I can see that - 1) because they are both good ponies, but also, 2) they won the lottery with a gentle and kind soul that shines in Heather. She is willing to guide them along their journey, at whatever speed they need to go, and - together. Thank you so much, Heather, for taking a chance on Guinness! I believe you two have a bond that is deep and everlasting, full of beauty and trust. Amazing and Beautiful!! ~
Texas Stallion "Scout" is now a Spoiled Gelding-as it should be!
Scout has come far after that auction in Texas. He was fostered by a caring couple, who also helped get all of the documentation in line to get his registration papers reissued (thank you!). Then, he had an offer for a foster with 30-days of training. Ha, that was a foster fail! Guess who adopted him!
Scout was used as a stud for most of his life, so redirecting him to other pastures was the goal, and keeping him happy at the same time. He was gelded, as it was determined as a middle-aged boy that would be the best course of action for him (for several reasons). With his attention now focused and calmed, he goes out under saddle and is currently in harness training. What a great Cream he has blossomed into for this new adopter. Where others saw nothing but a poor breed specimen, I saw a beautiful Cream who needed someone who was willing to guide him and make him shine! We are thrilled that Stacy and trainer Saydea have jumped in and are giving Scout their ALL to lead him down a path of success and a happy future, because Scout definitely looks like he has found a great future and is learning that being spoiled is really a sweet deal!
