|And back to New Zealand. This is Milford Sound.|
She knows I have vacillated extensively on the amount of money I am spending, what our actual goals are, and if this horse and I even have a future. So here a a few things that came out of our talk:
- Fawkes has been making really good progress in training. We were supposed to start in Oct, but we spent a lot of Oct and part of Nov trying to make sure his back would be ok so training really started in late Nov which means we are about 3 months in.
- While it is a lot of money, unless something changes with my work situation (always a possibility), I can afford this for at least 3-4 more months in which time trainer expects him to be a solid, reliable citizen over fences. And even thinks she might have a student identified to start half leasing him then.
- I am not going to lie, I have doubts about his jumping reliability but she is doing great things with him so I want to be open minded.
