HAPPY! She is such a babydoll! The trainer really likes her and says she

talked to someone at the Michigan show a couple of weeks ago that is
from CO and he asked them if they heard of you all and they had nothing
but nice things to say about you and your farm. The gentleman said that
you guys were good and honest people! I will keep you posted as she comes

"It was her (our daughter's) first show...Smart Pix aka "Smarty", was
a gem! She tied for 2nd. This yielded a ribbon, HER FIRST EVER! and a
brush, ALSO HER FIRST EVER! There was no 10 & under with the
modified pattern, thus she had do the full pattern including lead
changes which she had just learned (and nailed them!)! She just did a
beautiful job and is hooked!!! They call him the "Reinersaurus"
cuz he is so huge, but I have had so many compliments on him. His
dependability is so incredible. In particular, our judge commented on
what a great horse he is and a local trainer was asking, "Where did you
find him? Those are so hard to find!" I just wanted to thank you
and let you know he has a great home and is loved. Take care
and thanks again!"

"Hi Connie, Just
wanted to convey my gratitude for all you have done on my recent
purchase of "Dun It In Style". It's a very long way from Colorado to
New Zealand, but the shipment couldn't have gone any smoother thanks
to your willingness to help out in any way possible. "Sugar" arrived
on our property after spending six weeks in quarantine and she is
exactly as you described her, absolutely stunning to look at, a
beautiful mind and a ton of ability. Trust is a huge issue when
purchasing a horse half way around the world, you have certainly
earned mine! Be prepared for my call when I am looking for my next
purchase.....Kind Regards, Peter Watt, Vice President New Zealand
