    It might be helpful to give more details like location, training, etc. Thanks and good luck!

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear about both of your difficult times. Prayers to you both.

    I agree with equislover, more details would be great. Also, does he do trails quietly? I live in a rural area and there are tons of trail riders around here that take great care of their horses and love horses that size.

    Perhaps interested parties should be e-mailing or PMing the poster? I know that such information as location, etc. should be included in the post, but based on the reason for rehoming their horse (husband's cancer), I think she probably has a lot going on in her life right now. She might easier answer e-mails than come back to the thread and update.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the OP.

    perhaps we where trying to give her and other newbies as well, tips for post to attract more interested parties and in my opinion answering 100's of e-mails
    would take much more time , than posting here where everyone can see it and attract many more interested parties, after all thats what the boards are for , mass viewings...

    Yes, I understand this, Tricky; however, I also know what it's like to have a family member (can't even imagine significant other) going through cancer treatments.

    I am pretty sure the OP got the idea of additional information (including location) with the first reply someone made. I was merely telling others on this board that might be interested to be patient with the speed of the OP's replies/updates, etc.

    From her past posts, she appears to be around Charles Town, WV, a trainer. Jane Harper? She had Storm Gulch that someone here adopted awhile back.

    This horse sounds cute. Hope she can get him a home so she can concentrate on her family.

    From the OP via e-mail:

    We train at Charlestown and our farm is about 15 mins. south in Virginia. I have her cell number for anyone interested.

    Thanks everyone for the messages and prayers. We've actually had good news recently. More info;been turned out since June (when Jack got sick) no retraining. Basically was always good under saddle but can be a little spooky at times on the ground. Doesn't like living in a stall 24/7 at the track.Paces. Hasnt done it on the farm.No physical problems. Probably needs someone used to tbreds. Thanks again everyone.

    Default update, home found

    I just wanted to thank all of you who helped (in one way or another) to find our guy a home. Think he got a great little lady and will be picked up around Feb. 20.
