Anyway, he was incredibly steady and well behaved at Woodbine last week, and I can't have been happier with his performance. I'm so lucky to have this beautiful boy in my life.
He also showed (with great success) in a couple of intro classes with his new half-leaser, Erika, who is the perfect match for him (patient, kind, balanced and gentle - who could ask for more in a leaser?!) I couldn't be happier for the two of them!
Also, as a quick aside, Since last posting about Branson I have found his brand on his left gaskin and it turns out he is a Holsteiner, not a Hanoverian (which is what I was told he was, when he was given to me.) I'm still trying to make out his brand so that I can find out where in Germany he comes from.
