Goodbye Maggie

Yesterday, Maggie left for her new home at my trainer's farm.

The young horses were quite concerned to see her go, since she is the last adult mare we had. Now the youngsters are on their own, like a pack of school children with no teacher around. Who knows what mischief they'll get up to without Maggie's calming influence?

Here, the young horses line up at the fence to say goodbye.

I'm pleased that Maggie has found a good home with an experienced horse person who will know how to handle her little personality quirks. I think she'll be very happy there.

When Maggie arrived at the new stable, my stallion, Senter, recognized her right away, so at least the two of them will have a familiar face at the new place.

Goodbye and best wishes, Maggie!

What a great photo of the youngsters seeing her off. It tugs at the heart strings! Horses have such strong bonds with each other. Best wishes Maggie!
