Merry Christmas to Martin!

I delivered Martin to Troy, Va....he is settled into his forever home with Cindy Bianco of Crossing Pointe Farm. She has agreed to offer him a permanent home and great treatment. She does not show or give lessons...she simply wants a 'schoolmaster' of sorts to get her back in the saddle after some time off....something finished, reliable, willing, and friendly....Martin more than fits the bill...she came out to ride him on Saturday and they clicked right from the start....Her husband is a ferrier and has no qualms about the maintenance of his feet either....She has a 20 ac farm, her mother has a 25ac farm, and her mother-in-law has a 180 ac farm all around the Charlottesville area. Both her mother and mother-in-law take retirees or lame or rescue horses when people can’t find homes for them. When Martin finally gets to where he is completely unrideable, he will go live out the rest of his life on either of those farms with the rest of the retirees.

Merry Christmas, Martin....miss you!
