I am SOOO thankful! Pals coming home! Let me know what I need to do on my end as well. I know it's asking a lot but if there is anyway we can do this on the weekend it would be awsome unless someone on this end can get him during the week. I have zero vacation days at work to take off during the week due to being so sick the last few months. I burned all sick and vacation time.
I AM SOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yippee!!! Transportation was what was holding us back from taking Pal, but thank goodness that a VERY good person asked for help with transportation and an another Good person went out of their way to get Pal a ride. IF you ever decide you can't keep Pal Please let me know. We are located 45 min from Charlotte.. Good luck with him, he will make you a good honest horse, as the blind ones have such a good soul. Don't forget welcome home pictures!!!
Oh I think I'm going to start him a blog. Tricky, if you don't mind, when all is said and done, can you take a few pictures when he leaves )
I am really excited about working with him. Once he gets settled in I'm going to start teaching him some cues and all and if and when he gets comfortable I may even take him to a few local shows. I'll let him be the one who makes that choice though.
I am so, so glad Pal has found a home. Tricky, and everyone who has told of what blind and special needs horses can be capable of, and of what they add to their human's lives, you've saved more than one horse's life with this thread. Thousands of miles away and in no place to take on any kind of horse at this point, I now wouldn't hesitate to do so when I can support a horse at all.
When I have a whole barn full of special needs horses, I'll know exactly who to blame
Pal is fine and going to his new home in NC thanks to AggieDQ for her generosity for providing Pal's transportation and to Grace Ridge farm for taking Pal .
I think we should give AggieDQ a great BIG WELCOME to the COTH Forum I spoke with her on the phone a little while ago and she is a very pleasant and wonderful person .
Welcome AggieDQ we are honored to have such a great horse lover as you
to take part in the Forum , we look forward to seeing your post
Thank You So Much
God Bless you and Yours

I will be more than happy to take pics and a blog would be great . I think we all would be interested in Pals accomplishments , I believe like Patterson said Pal has touch so many lives not only horses but human as well all over the country and we would like to keep up with him.
I've already started his Blog. Did it at midnight last night so I may go in a rewrite a few things For those of you who are interested, here's the link. I hope to updated it weekly but more if some cool things happen.
I want to extend a HUGE thanks to everyone for helping me get Pal over here. He will arrive next Saturday so I am off to get his kingdom ready!
Pal is on his way to his new home in NC He left my Farm at AM this morning and should be at is new home this afternoon
