Dear Pepsi,Where do I start?I met you after a long break from riding due to some things getting in the way, and I lost all hope that I would find a horse for me to ride again. I also told myself that I wouldn't ever love a horse again, and would focus only on riding. I went through listing after listing, barn after barn, email after email, and I couldn't find one horse. Not one.Then a friend of mine contacted me, and she led me to you. I met you April 1st, 2010. I liked you. A lot. I leased you. And before we knew it, the thought that I had turned into a word, then it turned into what we have now, and forever will have.Thank you Pepsi, for teaching me things which I cannot explain here. Thank you for giving me all you have. Thank you for letting me love you. :)I love you, and I won't ever forget you.Leigh
Matan Oberon is a two year old colt. When he was born, the mare died. I knew very little about horses when we bought the mare with foal. For months I studied, preparing for a worst case scenario. Obie was stuck inside the mare with his head turned. We were able to pull him out. Before she died, the mare allowed us to milk her, providing him with the colustrum.Obie to me symbolizes what can be achieved with love, hard work and dedication. I have had SO MANY people help me on this journey. I am deeply grateful for each person. Obie is also an example that yes, you really can have a willing, respectful, happy, and healthy two year old colt.We have followed the methods of Clinton Anderson, from imprinting at birth, his first ride... wonderful methods I would recommend for any horse person.Thank you to each person who shares this journey with us - you have touched our lives.
Matan Oberon is a 17 month old colt. When he was born, the mare died, but left us with a beautiful gift. Obie has shown me the power of love, faith and strength. He has also shown me that if you find a way to his heart, he will always be with you.
