Oh, never realised that whistle was grey, thought he was a dark bay!
Did the guy who you sold him to manage to sell him on?

Meg looks a nice type!

He was pretty much black when I bought him but def had some white flicking so I presume he's gone a a bit more grey now. Such a talented horse, just a shame he had such issues. The more I think about it, the more I reckon someone tried to back him and failed.
The guy managed to get on him and sold him on cheaply. We got a letter asking for transfer of ownership, I wrote back telling her his history and asking her to let me know how he goes but havent heard back

Meg was super but when faced with something slightly challenging, she'd rear. Not really that much of an issue for us but she wasnt really talented enough for us to keep going with, we sold her on very cheaply.

That was such a shame about whistle

Hope that he is a happy riding horse somewhere, he did look a lovely type. If you've got the girls name/address of who bought him, you could ask direct enquiries for her number?

Have a feeling I've lost the letter. Whoops!
Also lost Moon's signed transfer of ownership form. Double whoops!!

Ohhh Boss !!! What happens when Moon wins something big, and the breeder starts claiming that she actually belongs to him/her and now wants her back?!

She was sold to a guy who specialises in naughty ones, he was a fantastic rider and said he's either keep her if she suited him or sell her on so she could be anywhere in the Yorkshire area.
I dont remember her talking to herself, she was quite a character though with a bit of a stroppy temper on her!! Her proper name was Weatherbird, she did an intro before we got her
