A long long goodbye

Klondike's beautiful faceThis is the hard part.  But it’s also the fun part, and the weepy part and the hopeful part.  As we all know Mr. K is going to toodle off to his new home shortly, to someone who I’m certain will love him for life.  I mean, how could you not?  I’ll admit there is a sad hush over the barn lately with lots of people admitting they may have just fallen for the cutest of Klondikes.

Because our time with the Kid is shortened, we’re taking advantage of every moment we have.  Last night I sat and watched Kelly hack around the ring and pop over a few jumps.  It made me happy, and it made Klondike happy.

I’ll let Kelly discuss her ride, but I just wanted to tell the world that I will miss this horse so very much.

    Allie, I thought you were great at the hearing today.
    You were so passionate and truthful about the
    fate of racehorses. Keep up your great work. You
    are an angel. Best, Bob Walters, NYC

    Bob, thank you so very much. I’m so happy that people were listening and that my message came through so clearly. I love racing so much, I just want it to be a sport I can love proudly (as Kelly so eloquently stated earlier)

    Thanks again,
