Big Doin's for Rosie!
When it was decided that we would be relocating to the Pittsburgh area I began to hatch a little plot in my brain. The trainer, Teresa, that I used to train my last horse, I absolutely loved. She was kind but firm and did a fantastic job. When I bought Rosie I thought wistfully, "boy, I wish I could just send her to Teresa when the time comes for training." But we were in Texas and Teresa had moved from Maine where I had first met her to Florida so my I knew that having Teresa train her was a total pipe dream. Fast forward to two moves later and I approached my husband with the idea that since we are having Rosie shipped from Colorado to Pittsburgh anyways how about she takes a side trip and spends the winter with Teresa in Florida getting trained to be a productive equine citizen and then she will be ready to go for me next spring. Long story short since I am typing this put on my iPod, he went for it! So today my little Rose Petal got on a trailer bound for Florida! I'm so excited for the both of us and while I know I will miss her this winter it will be so worth it when next spring rolls around.
