This past week Peekaboo made her way to her forever home. I was supposed to drive her to NY about a month ago, but Stella’s surgery delayed the trip.
When I found out Spokane Horse Trials would not be holding a FEH 4 yr old class for me to watch this weekend, I re routed from Washington to NY.
I was not looking forward to this drive. Thirty six hours of driving is not a great use of vacation time, but I was excited to get her to her home and so we loaded up and headed east.
It was a long 2.5 days, but Peekaboo made it as easy as she could.
It was actually nice just to spend time with her. She had been overshadowed by Stella and Siri at my house.
When we arrived and both basically unfolded ourselves out of the car, Peekaboo saw all the grass and open space and immediately did a happy dance. That blur is her running full speed..
She got along great with my Dads other two dogs and honestly, she really could not have settled in any better.
I spent the weekend showing her the ropes and introducing her to the invisible fence, a process that will take more time than I had, but I wanted to get her started on the boundary line at least. It became clear she had worn a shock collar before- as soon as she heard the beep she ran back to me. Makes me a bit sad for her but will make fence training easier.
A post about being east is not complete without at least one Dublin picture
He looked as handsome as ever and was happy to have me give him some love and apples.
He’s got to be close to 22 but definitely doesn’t look it. I was able to meet up with Amelia from Dark Jewel Designs and we both spoke fondly of these Irish horses and how well they age!
A great, quick, trip home before I head to the Midwest for work. I’ll miss Peekaboo but am so happy for her future with my Dad.
Looking forward to getting back to my two fraggles. I miss them so much!
