    Good for him!- and good for them!- I really like his type- but I wouldn't exactly call a $3000 horse a Craigslist horse regardless if they actually advertised him on craigslist.

    He slimmed down and made it onto the force! (reported last Friday on the news in PDX) It is so weird to drive through the industrial SE area of Portland and see a covered arena and horses. Love the mounted police!

    The Portland mounted unit is a wonderful organization. My old business partner sold them her horse that I had done some training on, and they put some amazing training on him, sent him out to do his job when he was ready and took great care of him. When he was hurt on the job they went above and beyond in his care, and when he retired, he was returned to my friend.

    I can't speak highly enough about them.
