    Default Cottonpickinwabbit needs a lift & fun video tribute link *UPDATE with pic post #18

    Hey guys. I know there's probably some of you getting ready for a pilgrimage south. Cottonpickinwabbit is at Judybigredpony's place where she was nice enough to monitor his gelding and hold him for me. Unfortunately the shipper has had an emergency and Sunday's trip south is cancelled.

    Is there anyone headed towards the Southern Pines area with room for 1?

    On an unrelated note, my DD home from college made an incredible tribute video tribute of Coby and my time together. It's a blast to watch and definitely showcase some good times and some of our not so stellar moments!

    I would be very happy to transport him, but North..to New England. Don't worry..I'll give him a very good home.

    No shipping help here, but I love the tribute video! Your DD did a great job. And Coby looks like a fun horse!

    Love the tribute video, particularly the helmet cam footage. A horse who loved his job, for sure!

    My massage therapist/saddle fitter goes to Southern Pines some time around now. I have sent her an email to see if she has a slot available and when she is due to go down.

    ACME--it's TUESDAY now. Where's our update and pics?!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    He is here and he is fabtastulous (not a real word, I just made it up). I only got one quick snapshot today during his morning feed (he arrived at 9:30 last night):

    I PROMISE to get more pictures and video as soon as I start working with him. He will get some time to enjoy his paddock and continue putting weight on before he starts any real work. Then a couple of weeks of round-pen and hacking. I have a large round-pen with an incorporated jump chute so very handy.

    I've already had an inquiry about him, but I'm just not sure he is ever going to be for sale. Something tells me this one is going to be special I reserve the right to withhold judgment for now . . .
