Last month was the year-end championship show for Greater San Diego Hunter Jumper Association. The week of the show, my husband Steve was laid off from the fence company that rehired him the beginning of last year. With that inspiring news I was on a big mission to sell my young hunter prospect and was lucky enough to find his next owner at the GSDHJA show.

Congratulations to Meghan Sullivan and her mom Carol Warren from Wanda Weldy's barn, Eddie's new owners. Thank you to Jennifer Willson and Wanda Weldy for helping put the sale together.

Hopefully once Steve gets another job, I'll look for another young prospect to start. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. But you will see me at the many horse shows I work, either announcing or in the office.
