Several of you have asked how Pippin and Doc are doing. In case you weren't 'in' on the beginning of this saga, I made the decision (hard decision) to sell my boys. I took them to a fellow who would 'tune' them up and then sell them for me. He sells horses at the Harley Troyer Auctions each year and is highly respected. (I bought the horses at this same Auction, three years ago.) I figure he would have a much better chance of selling them than I would, since everyone knows him and knows he is good for his word.
Although this is not actually a picture of Pippin and Doc, it could be! This is what Pippin and Doc were doing last week. It was time for the trainer to cut and bale hay, so, my boys were put to work pulling the hay rake. The trainer said they were working well as a team and he has been making use of the extra horsepower around his farm!
It still makes me sad, and tears well up in my eyes, but I do believe that this is what the boys were meant to do. They were meant to work and I was just not able to engage them at the level they needed. They are strong little guys with very busy minds. Their minds and their muscles need work.
