My two CANTER horses are doing great. Ridge Amour has recovered from his foot bruise and is in work. I expect everybody to go nuts over him as soon as I get some pictures and video. 16h 4yr grey gelding who is quiet, sweet and easy. I think he will have no problem finding a home. Corcho continues to put on weight and muscle. He is really looking good. Life on the farm has been so busy that Kurt hasn’t been able to get any vid/pics of the horses lately but hopefully we will get some time this weekend.
I want to catch you up on things that are going on around CANTER MA. My fellow volunteers are blogging!!!! This makes me happy!

You may remember Gavilan Peak from some of my former posts. He came to us back in July of 2011. When I went to our lay up farm I thought the farm owners had gotten a new pony 🙂 Um nope..he was our most recent donation at 14.3 h as a 3yr. He was absolutely sound and sweet so we gave him some time to grow and he has how stretched into 15.2 h. He went off for some retraining and is now ready to move into a new home. Check him out here- http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=7120%3Agavilan-peak-4yr-152-h-g-canter-ma-ownedretrained-located-in-md&catid=48%3Ama-canter-available-now&Itemid=313 He is just such an awesome horse. He came to my farm for a short time before he headed off for his retraining and I was smitten. I could see why our layup farm didn’t want him to go. He just loves people and is such a cool horse.
