    Congrats I love these happy stories the best.

    My own orphan filly (now yearling) is looking super at the moment - need to take some photos. She's very people friendly but extremely well adjusted in the herd situation - I'm thrilled with how well she's done!

    Oh Darlyn!!! He is so grown up!!!! I remember him, he was born just before or after my Magic that was orphaned the same year as your guy. I'm so happy for you and his owner, orphans are very special horses!!! I will have to get some updated photos of my GIANT orphan boy!

    Darlyn,

    Reading your story made growing hope in my soul...I told already hubby about this marvelous idea.
    I am feeding my orphan...she is hungry ! I have another mare with a foal, almost same age and I put the mare and foal beside the orphan...

    Your guy is stunning and looking at the pictures...I just hope we have a chance !

    Many many thanks.

    He is gorgeous Darlyn!!!

    Darlyn,

    He is a lovely boy, all grown up and happy.

    Not a fan of draw reins, sorry.

    Thanks Darlyn, We always agree

    He is lovely and I know he will be a wonderful horse for his owner. He moves very nicely and will be more comfortable with the use of his neck and head for balance.

    Capt. Littaur (the 1960's) indoctrinated me!...I truly hate draw reins! I am also not a fan of martigales or dropped nose bands (flashers). He always said that you needed those extras if you had bad hands! I can hear him saying that :-) Littaur would say, "I hate "the" draw reins!" Gosh I can still see him saying that...interesting that what you hear in your teens can really make an impression on you. Actually, I own both draw reins and side reins...never use them...but did try them, and hated the result...took them off immediately.

    I teach flexions on the ground, it takes about 5 minutes...again, I learned this from Capt. Littaur.

    Littaur was of course Bernie Traurig's trainer and Stephanie Steck's trainer, both won the AHSA Medal at MSG, Bernie also won the Maclay. Littaur was also Jane Dillon's teacher. He did clinics with Jane's students, including Joe Fargis. Sadly, he hated paperbacks and refused to allow his books on riding to be anything but hardcover, which caused them to go out of print.

    Wow...doesn't it just make your heart feel good to see how everything turned out for little Freckles?? Having raised a sick orphan myself, it's especially heartwarming.

    Darlyn,

    Actually she has to drop her head to nurse; on the picture, she was just meeting MOM for the first time so did not know exactly how to get to nurse.

    Hubby and I made a few adjustments, we also took your suggestions and not only she is nursing but she does not want us to be around anymore when nursing !

    Thanks soooo much to save our life (and sleep) and makes hers better !

    I wish the best to Freeckles !
