I had said in a previous blog post that I consider all the Delaware Park horses “my horses” as that is the program that I help to run for CANTER and I have a direct hand in networking with trainers, picking up the horses and settling them in at the layup farm.
I just got word that Joyous Jester found a home with Team Flying Solo. If you haven’t been reading her blog you totally should especially since there are now pictures of Jester on there 🙂 http://www.teamflyingsolo.com/2011/09/stork-came-to-my-barn-this-morning.html Jester was a horse that was in two different barns during the time that I saw him at the track. I remember him at the first barn because when she brought him out he was just so big and pretty. I saw him again in a barn that donates a bunch of horses to us. They told me they felt he would be the next on the list to come to CANTER as he was losing interest in running. I would always stop in to check on him while making the rounds. He was always just so chill hanging in his stall and they couldn’t say enough kind words about his professional attitude. He arrived in December of 2010 and then went down to NC a few months later and has just gotten to hang out and relax until Suzanne got him restarted.
His new owner will be eventing him and I think he will totally rock! Allie had posted a video of him on CANTER’S facebook page and you can see just how brave he was for his first cross country school. He has all the makings of a big time horse so it will be fun to watch him progress. I love all the CANTER buyers who have blogs. It’s makes stalking “my” horses much easier 🙂
