Daring Deeds has a third career as a fox hunter . . .and its Daring Deeds in the lead with his new mom - professional kennels-man and the first whip for Miami Valley Hun - Samantha Terry.
This is not a very good picture of Deeds on his first hunt. He is the one in front. It was so wet and windy that day -- but he was wonderful. He is going to be an excellent horse for hunting, once he gets use to the hunt whip. He will become my first horse for whipping. I’m the first whip and also hunt the hounds on occasions. I just know in my heart Deeds has come home to stay. He has a new friend called Beau (15.1 quarter horse) who is also new to the hunt field. They never fight or bully each other in the paddock. But Deeds is the boss.

I thought I would tell you that Deeds when on his first hunt yesterday. He was wonderful. He is very nervous of the hunt whip even just carrying it upset him but we will work on that. He is just a darling horse. I will send you some pictures of him.
We look forward to current photos of Daring Deeds in the hunt field with his new mom Samantha. Thank you for taking good care of a very special horse!

Daring Deeds has been sold for the second time and he will be riding with the Miami Valley Hounds.
My name is Samantha Terry from Urbana Ohio. I just Brought Daring Deeds and picked him up yesterday. He is a wonderful horse. Nothing upsets him including my small flock of sheep that living in my barn. I am the professional kennels-man for Miami Valley Hunt and the first whip. I hope to use Deeds this summer roading the hounds. Hope he will enjoy this! Thank you all for doing a wonderful job re-training him.

Deeds is doing great
and he is the most rock
solid horse I have. I can tell you honestly my experience with
him has made
me committed to look at a rescued TB prior to making any future
have changed his feed program a bit, and am still exploring the
combination of supplements.
challenge with him is getting my leg up--he is quite a hike up!
I really think he loves his new home and has settled in totally
program. I adore him and have not really turned him over to Annette
We will see. I will be riding him in a clinic in November and my
goal is to
having him really going at training level and show him in the spring.
How are things in your world? I will get
pictures from the clinic in November.
Thanks for asking about us.

We are doing great here. I am
afraid I am going to have a very hard time handing Deeds' reins
over to Annette. He is really such a joy to have around.
so many wonderful ground attributes. I bathe him
ground tied (sorry if I have already told you that!) What
a character. First horse I have ever owned that loves his
face sprayed. He reaches down to guide my hand up to spray
him in the face.
It is storming today but tomorrow I want
to take some pictures of him for Cherie. His neck flexion
is amazing and I want her to see him. She comes in
another week and I will get pix of him working. I will
send some to you. I am having him seen tomorrow by
a farrier who only does corrective shoeing for my vet. I
just want to see whether any special shoeing will help him in
any way. This guy does a lot of work for professionals
in the area. The vet and he work hand in hand. He
really helped a horse I had with a suspensory injury some time
ago. He lost a shoe anyway so it is a good opportunity.
you ever run across a female Mr. Deeds, let me know. I
might be interested as I do some sport horse breeding. Thoroughbreds
always are a great foundation for crosses which do so well especially
I will stay in touch. Hope all is well

Daring Deeds at his new home in Minster, Ohio - September 11,
Deeds is doing just great. He
is a pleasure to have around and work around. He has
totally adjusted. I have him turned out with the whole
herd now and he has the run of the place. He is usually
in in the mornings and I have not turned him out in the whole
pasture over night yet. I want to make sure he knows
where all the fences are. I turn him out at night in
the round pen with my yearling. They
get along just fine.
Heading to the back pasture with my new
buddies. Daring Deeds is on the right. - September 11, 2005
have been doing some fun ground stuff and he seems to take
to it very quickly. He just never seems to get his feathers
ruffled. He follows me all over the pasture which is
really fun. I sent you a few pictures--they aren't great
but at least you can see him in his new surroundings. I
will keep in touch. Hope all is well with you there.
Hopefully, it will cool toward the end of the week.
