I wanted to give you an update on Rory. He is settling in; the other horses are gradually being nicer to him. He is still a little nervous but gets less so every day. Every time Leslie or I go out there, he comes right up for a little reassurance. He's still a little jumpy with hand movements near his head, but he's starting to understand that our hands are going to stroke and be gentle. Leslie rode him in the round pen the other day, and he did great.

Hi Elizabeth and Barry,
I just wanted to let you know that Moe (new name is Rory, which means "red") is doing fine. He very much wants to get out in the pasture with the other horses, but it's still a little too exciting. He's been in our stall/paddock at night and in our round pen, which is out in the field where the others can come say hello, during the day.

Congratulations to Laura and Leslie Durham-Dixon.
Moe's expression shows the surprise of getting TWO new moms!

I love the picture you took of him and his "two moms". What an adorable expression! I also wanted to tell you that we took Pooky and Leslie's original TB mare to the Horse Park today. Phillip (Artic Vic) and Jennifer went, too. There are really nice big fields and wide grassy trails there, so we let them run.

I've never been on a horse going that fast before. I had a tiny taste of what being a jockey must be like (I'll leave it to them). Before today, Leslie had wondered how Pooky ever won any races because she is SO laid back, but after today's outing, she said she understood. Even as Pooky was having her flashback to her days at the track, she was really, really good.
