Elena on the 'real' Rocking Horse' - Voted Off in 2011

Elizabeth,

It’s been years since I sent you an update, but I thought you might like to know how Voted Off is doing. His primary job has been as my husband’s trail horse for the last 5 years. He is such a good guy though that he started giving beginners that visit the farm rides as well. Nothing too exciting to send pictures or updates about. He could have done much more, but with 3 small kids we haven’t foxhunted as we had planned.

About six months ago, my 6 year old daughter started riding him too. You might remember a picture of her you posted on your web site on her rocking horse when she was 2. Well, she has swapped out the rocking horse for Voted Off. They went to their first horse show together yesterday. It’s his first blue, lead line class. I expect more good things in walk only and walk-trot soon.:) They do well at home together on that now. Elena turns 7 this week and is looking to move up. Most important though, I think they both had a great time at the show.

I thought some of your track contacts might enjoy the show pictures. It takes a special horse to take care of small kids regardless of their breed. Many would say a TB isn’t suited for the job, but this one is.

Thanks for helping us find him.
