Shuffle the Deck

The horses are in great disarray these days. Izzy had gone to Calgary to spend time with my friend to get started. Unfortunately my friend's mountain bike bucked her off and broke her collar bone. So now Izzy will make the trip home. I was in a bit of a quandary with what to do with her. I do know I sure don't want to take the first rides! Jason, Roxy's trainer, is a superstar who's willing to trade off the young horses. This will give Roxy a bit of a break and allow Izzy to get started. We'll be doing two weeks on and two weeks off for each horse. While not ideal it solves my problem.

I will admit to being a control freak and didn't want Izzy to go to a stranger who I'm not 100% sure will do a great job with her. She's a wonderful horse and deserves a great start. Her papers came back with Iza Cuttin Jac as her official name so it seem fitting she head to the cutting trainer.

Whiskey remains out in Brownfield with Hook and the broodmare band. Here's hoping she catches and it's NOT twins!

Izzy is awesome!!! I am sooo heartbroken that I don't get to be the one to start her! Guarenteed, she will be an amazing little horse when she grows up! I wish you both well!!!
