Reiker has a wonderful disposition – but is also energetic and lively. He stood quietly on lead, but when freed, raced about with great abandon, his half white, half black tail flipped over his back. I took several photos because I wanted to acknowledge that this was a special day in both Victoria and Reiker’s life.
It was a no brainer. Victoria purchased him, and she and Misty signed a contract. Now her older horse, a rocky mountain horse named Dustani, will have a life-long companion.
Indeed, some people showed up after Victoria signed on the dotted line – they didn’t linger, and this made me think some about those horses who fall into the wrong hands. This one though, got a good home.
After, we came home and I passed on my now dog eared copy of Christine Schwartz’s The Joy of Icelandics to Victoria. It’s the copy that Virginia Crawford passed on to me.
I didn’t have time to dwell on either big event – after Victoria left, Pete and I went for a short ride, him ponying Signy and me riding Raudi. Then after, we did evening chores.
And it never ends. Tomorrow Josh the farrier is going to put in an appearance.
