Sorry it has been so long! A lot has happened since I last wrote. In June my husband and I decided that we have had enough of Colorado and moved back to sunny Florida. I was very excited to be near my family and friends again, but this was the most stressful move I had ever encountered. Needless to say I was the most concerned about my baby Flash.

Of course, he took everything in stride and made the trip with no problem. He now resides at a great farm ten minutes from my house. He is on real pasture with some new buddies and loves the environment. Flash is still the social butterfly of the barn and is very happy!

We have had a few setbacks in the way of training. Minor injuries to both him and I but that has no impact on his progression. I am still a Vet Tech at an Equine clinic in Brandon, near Tampa, so of course time to ride can be a challenge some weeks.

Flash has really matured in the last year and is holding his weight well. We have started to jump small jumps in the last four months and he really enjoys it! His attention span is still that of a five year old, but that is what makes this project so fun and rewarding. He has a really big jump and has never stopped or showed any hesitation.

I am very happy with him and again we both thank you for bringing us together.
