Druid goes home!

March 5, 2004

Druid came to live with me in July of 2003. In March of 2004, I was going on vacation. I did not trust any one except Peter, Haley and Catherine to take care of him. They lived an hour away, so he had to go to them.

Haley moved him to her barn and set up a small dry lot for him.

Druid loved it! He was back and happier than ever. Peter and Haley had given Druid to me, but when I saw how happy he was back at home. I had to give him back. He wasn't really mine. He had been lonely at my place because I was never there.

At Peter and Haley's, someone is always at the barn. Horses are worked all day and people are around. Druid especially liked being around the kids.

These pictures were taken the day that Haley took him back to Middleburg. We trimmed him and walked him to the end of my driveway.

His feet are continuing to improve. The sole looks over trimmed to me. I would no longer trim it this much.

Druid is even comfortable walking across rocks. We never thought we would see this day.

It was a third of a mile up to the end of the driveway. Not only was he comfortable, he got away from us and trotted off.
