This autumn, we welcomed a four-legged addition to the family. What a beauty he is! Meet Finnegan, a 4 1/2-year-old arabian-thoroughbred cross (anglo-arab).
Finnegan has a very sweet personality, and takes all that comes his way in stride. He is calm and intelligent.
He is currently living at a local stable so that we can take advantage of an indoor arena and training over the winter.
Finnegan has a good start at basic work under saddle. My daughter Ponygirl and I are beginning work at building his dressage foundation. Above, Ponygirl rides with visiting Clinic guest coach Jade Deter.
We don’t know much about Finnegan’s background. We purchased him from a foster home after he had been rescued from an auction frequented by meat buyers. How he came to be in such dire circumstances is a mystery. He is a bit underweight for his size and age, and we expect him to do some filling out over the next year.
A lucky star must have guided him to us and a chance at a new life.
We look forward to many happy years with our new boy.
Here I am in the saddle, above, and Finnegan with Ponygirl, below.
