    So did the new guy arrive? If you get reports of someone driving by in super slow-mo to sneak a peak it's NOT me.

    Okay, it'll probably be me

    À demain.

    There was some kind of mix up with pick-up times and the trainer's racing schedule. So we wait till tomorrow.

    Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, she was sold on Wednesday. In England. I was still mulling it over, so I'm actually relieved that I'm relieved of the decision.

    I guess his picture disappeared because "I do not have permission to access this site"... pouting!

    You are doing better then me! Apparently the entire Canter site is blacklisted here in Oz or at least my computer. I could see Canter up until a couple weeks ago.

    I have no idea what the story is w/ Oz, but Star Colony's link (the original) isn't working anymore b/c I moved him into the 'sold' folder this weekend per trainer's request during my track run on Saturday. I think it's a great thing when we show the trainers how many calls a CANTER listing can generate...up to the point of sale.

    I loved him, JER, and look forward to seeing some updates!! His (former) trainer is one of my favorites, too.

    Now I'm told this horse will be arriving on Wednesday.

    Sigh.

    Hmmm, Wednesday . . .

    And hypothetically speaking, approximately what time?

    Just so I'm NOT driving by and stalking when he arrives.

    And maybe between the two of you we'll get some more delicious additions to the "walking the course" thread.

    Please don't make me beg.

    Aw, thanks. It was super fun to start that thread.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to stalk JER's new boy arriving, but thanks to the invite I'll swing by and say hi after he settles in

    Late. And getting later. Other horses need to be dropped off elsewhere.

    Don't these people know who I am? ()

    He'll arrive at 11 or so. Mike will be his receiving party. Star Colony will probably be blissfully unaware that he'll be in the hands of a legend.

    That's some introduction to eventing, isn't it?

    Complications arise...

    Not with shipping. That's still on schedule. I think. I hope.

    Glenbaer has promised to take pics when she sees him tomorrow at 6 am.

    However, Glenbaer has now decided that 'Colin' is not going to be his name. Of course, we are keeping the Star Colony name for competition but we do need to call him something with fewer syllables.

    Suggestions? I'm not good at names. I abdicate responsibility for this whenever possible, out of concern for my animals' future.

    I just went to a random name generator thinking it might be the quickest, easiest solution. I mean, how bad can it be? The name that came up was 'Eduardo P. Ludwig'. A random name, for sure, but not one I'd use on a horse.

    Please help!

    You can't pick a name without him. Go see him and let your mind wander. A name will pop up. Honestly.
