On November 13, 2004, Will arrived, delivered by David Hadley, the head trainer at Ryan Ranch in Blanco, to our first home with friends between Canyon Lake and Wimberley, Texas. The photo above was taken about a week before, the day I made the down payment and scheduled his delivery for Saturday November 13. That day was dreary, drizzly, and there are no good photos but I remember watching him pace around the pasture, nervous in his new home. His new companion, my friend’s quarter horse, raced around her paddock, calling and calling to her new friend. It was an amazing day. I can’t believe it’s been so long.

We had a bit of a rocky start getting to where I wanted to be, but I have to say I’m extremely pleased with our progress that last five years and very happy where we are at this anniversary. I spent my morning with him, getting him cleaned up from his full body mud masque. We have a day at Agarita planned for this weekend, to celebrate our progress and achievements.
