    According to the latest list, Shego is still in need of a new home http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif

    Shego, an observation

    While I was under strict orders, "No mares", Shego almost made me give in! She is so cute and sweet. Just the most adorable face with an attitude that appears to match. So if you were interested in her, take a look!

    I still havent gotten mine yet (Jacob's Trust). He and the one my sister got (Cathedral Tower) are supposed to be arriving this morning at her farm in Hansen, MA. My sister promises to take lots of pictures for me...until I can make further arrangements to have JT shipped home.

    Hunterjumper19 thank you for your updates; I have some favorites in there as well. I spoke to Kim who purchased Canna Bella and that is the way I described her as well. But I didn't know that Smokey Way sold and that has made my day! Thank you again. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I'm still looking for an update on
    Safe Sympathy
    Here's Johnny
    Sneaky Secret

    Anybody know what happened to them?

    I think somewhere I saw that Jovial Belle has a new home? True? GAWD! She's GAWgeous!

    No, I CANNOT purchase a CANTER horse right now. I'm full to the top rails at the moment and can barely feed the ones I've got. Congratulations to those of you who could (and DID). http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_cool.gif

    Can't wait to see pics of all the happy horses in their new homes http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I hadn't even known some of those horses sold! Even better news! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Smokey Way is such a cool horse. He has been around the block and back at 12 - not a pimple on him, just figured out as he got older that he did NOT want to be a racehorse anymore, and as the vet put it, "Smokey found very creative ways to use his clever mind for evil whenever anyone tried to bring him to the starting gate." That only applied to the racetrack, though - his trainers, who have had him since he was 5, said he is a peach on the farm. He must be quite pleased with himself for having finagled his way off the track and into the fun new job he's wanted all along!

    Jovial Belle I am pretty sure went to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. Safe Sympathy, Sneaky Secret and Here's Johnny all went with their trainers back to their home tracks to race again - but are still for sale!

    I'm so glad Karakorum and "Burnie" (as he was known at the barn) found homes - I know their trainer really didn't want to have to take them back to race again since they obviously didn't want to do it. Karakorum is gorgeous and Burn's Future is such a laid-back horse. Funny story: One of the other CANTER NE volunteers (LBM, were you the one who saw it?) witnessed Burn's trainer trying to demonstrate how cool-headed of a horse he really is. He had one of the grooms pull out a filly and literally shoved her butt in Burn's face. Burn looked up as if to say, "Uh, I'm trying to eat here, could you not do that, please?" and went right back to eating in his stall. I don't think the gelding operation bothered him much because I don't think he knows what he lost! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    All the others are beautiful horses and they will make you all very happy. Please keep updating with pictures and stories!

    OK, as for those horses who were NOT sold by the end of the meet - you should still be able to reach their trainers using the contact numbers listed at http://www.canterusa.org/newengland/sale/index6.htm:

    -Winning Gal, last I know, was still available. She will most likely be going back to Suffolk Downs (East Boston, MA). Love that mare; they don't come much calmer.

    -Shego and most, if not all, of Sam Keyrouze's other horses will be going to Penn National Racetrack (Grantville, PA). Call Sam and make an offer. He has a huge stable and obviously would prefer to cut his losses with the less competitive ones, so he'll welcome the calls.

    -Carli'silverprize is a really pretty, nicely packaged little gelding. He's so cute that he almost looks like a filly...but don't tell him I said that. He jogged out very well and won his last race at Northampton going away. He does have old ankles (I realized after a few people asked what "old ankles" are that it's a racetrack term not commonly used anywhere else. "Old ankles" means ankles that have enlarged, due to the repeated pounding action on the track, and then set. May lead to some limited mobility and arthritis down the line as the horse ages, but they don't cause pain, and will not limit competition in dressage, hunting, even some jumping depending on the individual horse. Talk to a vet and they can tell you more).

    Another thing about Carli: his trainer for some reason is telling everyone that the horse is only 14.2 hands high. HE ISN'T, trust us! He is at least 15.2, possibly 15.3. He is not a pony. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    For those interested in horses who have shipped back to other tracks, when you talk to the trainer, ask them the name of the vet they use at the track - then call the track's main number, ask for the veterinary office, and ask who ASIDE from that vet can do a pre-purchase. (It is a conflict of interest for vets to do pre-purchase exams on horses they treat for racing. There are multiple vets at each track so you should still be able to get an exam done there.) If you run into any problems, PT one of the CANTER NE volunteers and we can pull together the requisite contact info for you.

    I was also wondering about Sneaky Secret, Safe Secret, Cali and Shego. This is so tempting. I wonder how low he would go on Shego.

    Yup, this was me - and it was quite hilarious! Sam had shown him to a couple people who decided not to buy him because he had just been cut and they had mares at home. I think he was getting frustrated, so he decided to PROVE that he didn't act studdish around mares http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif He touched noses with the filly to say hi, but didn't make a peep or drop - by the time Sam turned her around to put her butt in his face, he was down eating his hay again and didn't even look up http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Yeah, I'm tryiing to decide between Shego and Winning Gal. That pic of Shego is just striking. But, everyone seems to adore Winning Gal and temperament is VERY important. Just wish I could see a conformation photo of Winning Gal.

    I actually can afford them both but oh my goodness my monthly horse expenses would be outrageous! (I already have 4 mares.)

    Bugs - you never know how low the trainer will go on Shego unless you call and make an offer!

    Inca, we will be back at Suffolk (where we are every weekend) this Saturday. If Winning Gal is there, we can get a conformation photo of her for you.

    17handtb - that would be GREAT if you could get a conformation picture of Winning Gal. I've had enough glowing reports about her temperament that I feel comfortable with that. Just want to be sure she is built reasonable well for dressage.

    Thanks!

    Ok I snapped a couple of shots of Sahara this morning but I don't know how to post them on this board. If someone could help me I would be grateful.

    Sahara is doing well. I put her in a small turnout this morning and when I unsnapped the lead she just stood there and swung her head around squealing a little and kicking the air. Then she realized she could actually move off on her own. She was in heaven! It is only a small turnout so she can't work herself up too badly and it is good for her to see the other horses. She is so intrigued by them in the fields. I left her there for the afternoon as she is enjoying it so much. It does my heart good to see. What a wonderful mare.

    All of Mark Eagans horses should be back at Suffolk (Safe Sympathy). My groom that takes care of my horses is Mark's groom originally and he told me yesterday that Mark is bringing four back from the fair.

    Hi Kimdonaldson this is the volunteer that spoke to you from my cell about your new baby...I am so happy for you, and wish you luck. I do not know who purchased my kimberlee ann, but I am sure they will be happy with her as well.

    Thanks for the update, hunterjumper19! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I feel like we're all an extended family now. It will be fun to keep up with each other's new babies and for those who didn't get one this time, to enjoy the stories and progress as well. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
