Hugo and Brat are back! While Hugo is no hulking giant in height yet (though his rear end that's about three inches higher than his shoulder might beg to differ!), he has surely become a hulk in size! Massive chest, huge butt, and wide well sprung barrel make him one heck of a good looking young man. His vacation from anything but love and eating have done him good. He's now ready to become a big boy and start a career of his own!

For the last seven months, this lucky young man has had over twenty acres of pasture all to himself and his four "siblings." Next weekend, both Hugo and Brat will be returning to A Pinch of Luck to find new homes and new careers. They have been loved and doted on by their short-term parents Terry and Sandy, who are ready to take on their next project, Na Pali, when he joins them at their home.
Hugo, I am told, has grown huge--we're not updating his height til he gets here--and has benefited tremendously from the opportunity to simply grow up! He's now ready for anything and should, with very little effort, slide right back into a training routine and onto a career in any direction.
Stay tuned for updates and new pictures coming soon!

Hugo is one lucky young man! His forever home picked him last week, and though he'll be staying with us for a month or two, he'll soon be heading home to a brand new barn with some new friends of his very own. Hugo will enjoy the next few years just the way he should--as a youngster who will be given plenty of time to grow and mature with all the love in the world from his brand new mom and dad! Congratulations, Hugo!! And congratulations Sandy and Terry, too!!

Hugo joined us from Florida a week ago and is settling in like a champ. For such a young guy, he's only two, he's rolled with the punches and has fit right in with our program. He's easy going and very nice to work with--he enjoys being groomed and fussed over, was a good boy when he had his feet trimmed on Monday, and is easy going in turnout.
Hugo was most likely started as a long yearling last fall, and is reported to have spent time at a training center before becoming a racetrack dropout. He's tall for his age, and lanky, and most likely just couldn't make the grade as a promising racing prospect. He left his brief foray with racing in good shape, and only has a pair of splints to show for his efforts. They're cold and set, and fortunately are blemishes that could be found on any young horse that's started into work.
This attractive young man is a very nice mover, and between that and his wonderful demeanor, he should be suited to just about any discipline in the future. A little time to finish growing up, and this guy will for sure be up for anything!
