So, I called my mom so she could pass on the word to some of her clients back in SoIll (which she said the word is traveling fast and most of them had told her about it), and to tell her which ones I wanted to find under the tree when I come back home for Christmas, and I don't think she took me very seriously!
I mean really, if I'm making the 12 hour drive - I might as well bring a trailer!
I'm crossing my fingers for all these lovely horses. I wish, I wish, I could take some home. I loff me that stallion. I emailed a farm where he used to stand and alerted them of the sale (don't worry, I was very polite and not crazy sounding).
If anyone wants to pick up some heese and keep them for me for several years I know eventually I can afford them!
Really though, there are some quality animals in that bunch.
Heck, I was close to jumping in the truck and heading out from New Hampshire - 12 hours is nothin'
Edited to add: if you have room for #57 and #58 on your rig for me, I'd be much obliged!
If I could, I would!
I was thinking maybe I'd just haul my retired guy to the parents house and the the new guy home (whichever one he may be)... For some reason, the p'rents aren't enthusiastic about me leaving them with another horse and there's no way I can keep 3 out here!
Maybe we could do a COTH syndicate, and name him 'COTH Mt. Vernon'
This COTH post inspired me to go to IL and try to help. (Naughty, naughty, on my part! I couldn't help it!!) I posted any news I had at the completion of the sale on the crosspost of this post in the Off Course forum if anyone is interested, or if anyone else went and has news!
Are you meaning Company Approval??? Yes, I believe the Illinois rescue people helped to find him a home. He is VERY nice---a brother to one of my event horses who I worship!! I wish I could have had him, but alas... Do not need a stallion! He is a very nice horse.

Congratulations on #40! He/she is this year's foal by Company Approval out of Carrot Top. From the photo, he/she is going to be a nice, big horse for you in a few years. I just love chestnuts. Of course, I love bays and grays also.
