don't want to jinx it but...

I have been in contact with the ranch where Piney came from...

For those of you who haven't been following the entire time, Piney my first OTTB, came from a ranch in western North Dakota for retired race horses. The ranch has about 4,000 acres of pasture and when horses are retired for whatever reason they are sent out to be horses for a year before they can be adopted. An equine dentist and track vet has been taking the retired horses from the track out to his ranch for the last 20 years. If the horses for whatever reason aren't adopted they can stay forever. It's just such a nice place for retired horses because there is plenty of kindness for them. And that year off just really does wonders for racehorses.

Anyways I have contacted the ranch's facebook page and had asked if they had any gray geldings that were available for adoption. They wrote me back saying that they had one that the owner of the ranch thought might be a good match for me. I asked a few more questions but the person running the fb page couldn't answer them so she had me call the owner of the ranch.

I contacted him and asked a few questions. He remembered me and Piney which was why he thought the gelding would be a good match for me. He said that the horse was just a really nice horse, with a nice personality, has never been lame a day in his life, and was just a nice all around horse.

So thought about it, and then let them know to hold the horse for me. Sooooooo that's where I am sitting.

We are working on pinning down a time to bring him home to me.

I am excited.

I am terrified.

I just have a lot of feelings right now...LOL.
