The gelding went
ok. He looked amazing for the first 5 days and then got a slight
infection. I got him on antibiotics right away and within 5 days
he was looking good again. It is almost totally healed at this
point. The rain is killing us. I have not been able to do much
with him other than brush and love him.
Behren is a very sweet guy. I love having him around. I am going
to attempt turning him out this weekend with my other young
horse. My best friend who is a horse trainer is going to be there
to help. I am also going to ride him really for the first time.

I wanted to give you an update on how great Behren is doing. I
was able to turn him out for the first time on Saturday. He is
such a sensible young horse. He quickly learned about the hot wire
fencing and that the white strand of fence was his barrier. He
is so calm that I can brush him and wrap his legs without ever
putting the halter on him.
While he was out two horses rode by the property. I was a little
worried with him being a stallion; however, he trotted to the end
of the fence, galloped back to the top of the property and then
stopped and watched them ride by. I was so amazed by him.
Heather's first ride on her ex-race horse Behren's Design.
After he had been out for a while I decided to tack him up and
go for a walk. My father helped me get on him and then we walked
around the property for about 10 minutes.
I wanted to thank you again
for everything that you did. I have an amazing horse thanks to
you. I never would have found this nice of a horse for the same
price here in San Diego, CA.
I have attached some more recent photos for your review.
Former race horse, Behren's Design traveled
well and settled into his new home without problems.

Here are few more pictures of Behren. The ground is getting drier
and my plan is to ride him on Saturday for the first time. I will
make sure to get some pictures of the event. Behren is such a sweet
boy. I am amazed at how calm he stays. I love him already!!

Here is one photo that I have with me. I am waiting for my Husband
to email me the rest of the pictures that I took over the weekend.
It is supposed to be clear until Sunday so on Saturday I plan on
riding him for the first time and will get pictures for you.

He is doing great. It has been raining here since Friday. It is
horrible. I hope to have a dry week so I can get him out. Yesterday
his hind right leg blew up. I am hoping that is just lack of getting
to move around. He seems to be sound on the leg. I will send pictures
soon. I have not been able take many good ones due to the weather.
