I finally got Sage (Wise Young Sage) last Friday and he is the biggest teddy bear! He has the sweetest heart and has impeccable manners! I want to thank you, Becky and Deb for helping me get such an amazing horse. I have to say I have never bought a horse sight unseen, much less one that I have not ridden first; but this entire process has been amazing….Sage is everything y’all described and more…he is a beautiful mover. Buying one of your Prospect Horses off-the-track has been a great experience, and I would happily do it again in the future.
Home…Home on the range (in Texas)…..Sage is now finally here with me and he has a new best friend Tiger. Both of them are 4 year-old OTTBs and they are both beautiful fiery red chestnuts. You would think they are long lost brothers, because they are inseparable. They don’t leave each others side….even though they are turned out with three other horses. If you take one of them away from the other they whinny at each other it’s hilarious.
Elizabeth put me in contact with one of her business partners, Becky and she talked to me about Sage’s history and how he was in desperate need of a career change not to mention a new owner asap. After talking about the horse with Elizabeth and Becky, I decided to get Sage vetted. Becky arranged for a vet to go to the farm and look at Sage. I was so excited when the vet called me and told me his radiographs were clean!!! I called Elizabeth & Becky and said “ship him to Texas he passed with flying colors!” Next step was to move Sage from his previous owner’s farm. Becky called one of her friends Deb who picked him up and drove him to her beautiful farm. She washed him, fed him, wormed him, had his teeth floated, and his shoes done within the first 48 hours…..an amazing woman!!! (Believe me when I say between Elizabeth, Becky, and Deb these women can move EARTH, WIND, & FIRE when is comes to these horses). After a week of groceries at Deb’s farm Sage was off to Texas.
You can see from the picture of their turnout there is a big lake…..well the first day Sage was turned out we had him in the pasture that didn’t have the lake fenced off …soo he decided to go for a swim….haha. I wish I had a picture because he looked like the Lochness Monster…..it was hilarious. Now he is on the other side of the lake (which is fenced off from the water) and now he can’t go swimming…..poor boy.
I will keep you updated on his progress and will send some pictures of our first ride later this week. Thank you all at Bits & Bytes Farm for a great horse!
