This week I went out to Bedlam Farms and spent some time getting to know Gretta and Ryder. I spent a couple of hours grooming and handling each horse to assess their temperament and usability for our program.

Let’s start with Miss Gretta. What a lovely mare! I’m a firm believer that horses are sentient beings. After just a short time with Gretta it’s apparent she handles herself like an elegant lady. Everything was easy with Gretta, she seemed to know what I wanted before I wanted it. I’m very excited to have her for our program!

Oh Ryder. This guy knows he is handsome! He was more than willing to stand for a good grooming and boy, did he need a good scrub with a shedding blade. This guy knows how to grow some major hair. Ryder is not nearly as mature or dignified as Gretta but he is such a cool guy and I’m sure he will have many fans with his good looks!
