Well, if you would like to look and see a bit of a horse of a different color - here is "Al" also known as Abundant Legacy! He is by our Adamant out of his owner Antonia's treasured mare Legacy (1/2 Crabbett bred Arabian 1/2 Appaloosa). His trainer/rider Hoppy is a staff member of River Hills Foxhounds (www.rhfpa.com) and she is thrilled with how he is performing in his first season...
This was Al's second hunt ever and this is what his trainer/rider had to say...
"Ellie and Anne, This was the 2nd time I hunted Al, and this time he did not have a buddy to take the lead if needed. He went everywhere, even pushing through the corn to get around a huge fallen tree. He jumped everything that got in our way, has figured out how to twist and turn on the paths at speed (I really like my knees- the 1st time I had to show him that straight lines thru trees was not in either of our best interests!) and we had to turn a hound back who was running heel and I could crack my whip on the run – he didn’t even flinch, never mind since the corn is still up you don’t know what is making the racket in there. You hope it is hounds and not a bunch of deer aiming for you. Just thought you’d like to know that Addy’s genes are doing a great job :) , Hoppy"
Congratulations to the entire staff at Whizard's Lair for raising such a lovely horse for Antonia! And our heartfelt thanks for sharing your happiness with us!
