    Red face This Made My Day!!

    I have a pony that has been very near and dear to me. His dam was my LPH and I stood his sire for several years. Last year I leased him out (he was a perfect pony) and when he returned, he was a little sh***. Nothing terrible, but just not the pony ***I*** knew.

    We found the perfect situation for him and they tried him at a big show. I thought he was a naughty pony, but they loved him and took him home on their trailer. They send me weekly up-dates, but today took the cake.

    They LOVE him and sent me pictures with the most beautiful love note. Their daughter has pads with his name on one side and her name on the other. They even bought a brush that matched his markings!

    I feel like with this lease, I have gained a family. It is the trainer's daughter that is leasing him, but they said he is a barn favorite. Breeding can be hard, but seeing a pony I bred make a little girl's dreams come true is a complete blessing.

    It feels great when it works out like that, Congrats!! I hope they continue to love and cherish him for years to come.
