Shadow left Leesburg, Virginia Saturday night at 7pm and is expected to arrive here in Nebraska either tomorrow or early Wednesday. Tomorrow is Gracie's birthday so I told the hauler he would be a 9 year-old little girl's hero if he delivered Shadow on the 12th!

Shadow Is On The Way!
Shadow is the new horse we are having shipped over from Virginia for Gracie and Gemma to use for Pony Club. She is a 20 year-old mare, Arabian-Quarterhorse cross and trained under English saddle for jumping and dressage. She is 14 hands 3 inches high, a perfect height for my young riders! Shadow's owner is stationed in Japan and attends the American School where Aunt Karen teaches. The family was leasing her out for the last year in Virginia because they thought they would only be stationed over there for one year, however a new opportunity came up and they will now be over there a few years longer than anticipated. So it was a match made in heaven. We needed a safe, English trained horse and they needed someone to ride and love Shadow in their absence!
