Hey Jack! I booked my trip to San Antonio this March! I'll be in Texas from March 3rd to the 11th, of which some of my time will be spent in Arlington looking over apartments for the big move this year. I look forward to seeing you and everyone else again! I cannot wait.
I hope all is well with you and yours. Happy New Year!
I fly in to Dallas (Love Field) on March 3rd and will go directly to Sarah's home in Arlington. The next day, the 4th, we're driving down to San Antonio and will remain there until the 8th. So, from the 9th to the 11th, I will be in or around Arlington. I know Sarah's mother, Valerie, wants to take me to the Fort Worth Stockyards sometime during my visit. I am looking forward to it all!
He's a striking, good-looking horse. Sounds like you two were meant to meet.
One of my Arabs is 25, I've had him since a yearling. Took him to Wyoming w/me the first year I worked as a wrangler...he did well but didn't take him with me the next year. I already had 125 horses to care for and too many things can happen in strange settings and it was a long trip between Maine and Wyoming also.
So I left him home until I returned in the late fall.
My other Arab--in the pic w/me--is a 5-year-old, feeling really good/spirited this spring--need some miles on him. I got him when he was 4 months old. Will keep both for as long as they live.
You can see them on my TruWest photos.
All horses aren't for all people and it's nice to find your match.
Good luck with your buckskin.
