A lot of you will remember Bob the horse. He’s the horse that I wrote my book about, along with the rest of his herd.
I have an update for you. Bob and the herd have found new homes. Melvin the farmer who owned them had a quintuple bypass last year and last month, he was no longer able to get out to the barn and care for them. His legs aren’t real strong, but he can still get to his golf cart and enjoy the wind in the trees.
Two of the horses have been sold and moved to a big ranch in Colorado, some of the others have moved west but not as far as Colorado.
Now for Bob…he is temporarily living with a family that used to be Amish and there is a young man who LOVES horses who is caring for Bob. Bob had a damaged hoof as a result of some icy ground this winter and this fellow has helped Bob to heal.
I may go visit Bob at his temporary home and I’ve been trying to find out how much Bob would cost and if I could buy him.
I’m so proud of Bob because this young man has found that Bob can still pull a wagon and do it well. He does it so well that he is now being hitched up with the young horses that need training and he is their teacher!
If I go to see Bob, I’ll take some pictures if they’ll let me and share them with you.
