Some things are just meant to be. Last year, my family moved next door to the Cornings. That same year three beautiful foals were born on their farm. As a very neighborly gesture, Dick and Dee invited our family into their barn every time a foal was born. My girls and I loved being involved with each birth, but it was foal number two that got us totally hooked. Right from day one, I knew that I could never let Poco leave this farm. Her personality and sweet disposition has made a strong bond between us all. She is so quiet that even at only a month old she would lay down in the stall and let the girls (ages 5&9) brush her and even pick her feet! She loves people and really wants to please. When we started training her, we were tickled that she is so soft, smooth, and smart. There is one drawback though..she's too young to ride! This summer I got antsy about buying a horse for me to ride now and for my daughters to ride when I start on Poco. I looked through the classified ads and nothing quite measured up to what I have in Poco. Dick and Dee finally offered to sell me their two year old gelding, Pep. Pep is a full brother to Poco, and I have always thought Pep is a good looking dude. In 2005 Pep was a WFQHA World Champion Weanling Colt! At first I was apprehensive about riding such a young horse as I've only been riding for about four years. But, just as Pep is outstanding on longeline, he is proving that he is great under saddle too. He is soft and supple, willing and smart. And boy does he sit down on a stop! We have had so much fun with these young horses, and this is just the beginning!
