  • get there before another blizzard to get Socrates

    With the forecast of another blizzard to hit eastern North Dakota starting tonight they decided to get him as soon as possible. They drove up last night straight through picking him up around 3pm this afternoon....headed now to Wichita Kansas for layover

    Daughter with Socrates, he is nine months old

    He may be a big'un!
    He may need an air conditioned stall, coming from the frozen North as he is.
    Good that they could finally get him out of there.
    Her big smile tells us she is going to be a happy gal once he is home.

      Adorable. Can't wait to hear about your daughter's journey with him. Really makes me miss my Morgan - though I love all my current boys. There was just something really special about him.

      Wishing him a safe and uneventful journey!

        I believe he gets body clipped Monday... there is nearly a 100 degree temp difference for him adjust

              that photo was from yesterday at 3:30pm.... it was all a rush to get out of Cooperstown North Dakota before the current snow arrived this morning. Forecast was for near blizzard conditions once again, I see they got about a foot again already and the NDOT has issued a no travel advisory

              The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) along with the North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) have issued a No Travel Advisory for south central North Dakota due to heavy snow creating slippery road conditions, near zero visibility, and hazardous driving conditions.

              they made it to Wichita Kansas early this morning to a prearranged stop at horse motel for a 24 hour break then on home to Fort Worth

              The last message I got was plan is to leave tomorrow morning . All they said was Mr Smarty was a very tired horse but very well behaved

              As a note my daughter in the photo is 5 ft 11" ... so it does appear that he might get taller than expected...by his breeding he should come in at about 15.2 ... but he does appear to be "more of a horse at ten months" than I seem to remember our others having been but it has been over twenty years since we have had a pup.

              supposed to be 81F here again today

                Oh, that's exciting. He looks lovely, nice head and expression. He's full Morgan, correct?

                    yes 100%

                    My daughter had another from the same breeder that she took to several national championships, he died this last fall due to West Nile... even though he had been vaccinated annually every year since the vaccine came able in the early 2000s

                    Prairie Hill Mulligan

                    When Mulligan died of course she was heart broken, she contacted the breeder who she has always kept in contact with to tell her of his passing, but when she was looking at the breeder's web site she saw this foal Prairie Hill Socrates ... and began plotting his transfer to Texas

                    Socrates is of old Funquest breeding lines, we knew the Hatfields and actually some horses of Socrates lineage

                    his pedigree is on All Breed Data base... if I link to it it will make this post unapproved I believe

                          That's a cute baby, a lot of snow, and a pretty confusing thread title! I'm pretty sure I'll never live in North Dakota!

                              they are in Wichita Kansas where he will rest until Sunday morning. They have had him out, he shied at the dusty
                              ground.

                              daughter's comment is "he is stunning and I can't even explain how amazing he is "... and she is not easily impressed

                                  Some horses are like that, "amazing".

                                  Glad that he is one of those, your daughter will be so very happy.
