Where The Heck Has Mala Been???

We have a new addition to the family!  After waiting 40 years to buy her next horse, my aunt Di and I went horse shopping last week.  For the first time ever, I didn't buy the first horse we saw... nope, we bought the 6th one. 
Interesting day checking out the horses on the back stretch of Suffolks Down and I think we brought home something very special...

Meet "Wrong Street", aka Taz
Stunning isn't he?
So I've been a wee-bit pre-occupied with getting this guy settled in.  He'll need some time to figure out how to be a horse away from life on the race track and then we can begin the process of re-training him into, hopefully, a nice hunter jumper.
I'll keep you updated on his progress.
In the meantime, look who's riding...
Dare I say Morgan has the riding bug????  She has now claimed Mr. Dee as "her horse".  Which, oddly enough, leaves me horse-less... again.

Bev - Yes, Courtney's pretty much taken Storm for herself. And since I'm out of stalls in the barn I guess I'll just.... oh wait, that song just popped into my head... you know the one, "Save a horse, ride a cowboy!"
awwwww, sometimes it's like the angels talk to me.

Bubbasmom - WELCOME! Thanks for the compliment. And when you're ready to go forth and get a horse, call me!!!!!
