Congratulations to Karen Wales on her purchase of NARKO, yes i wrote that correct.

Karen has been bugging me over the past few years to let her have Nark back, gosh i cannot wonder why wacko.gif. I sent her pictures of him when i clipped him out as a yearling she said I WANT MY HORSE BACK!!! Well, i said NO WAY. Karen lost his sire, Boones Little BTU Crown Prince, and sold his mother, and has just been bugging the heck out of me wanting him back. Of course i said nope..no way, he is not going ANY where but here!

I've been trying to make room in the barn as i have a number of horses coming in the spring..debating those that im going to show and NEED in the barn...and then that dreadful list of who does not need to be in the barn, but at the same time i just don't want to turn them out to the pasture and let them just exist. So, was sitting at work Monday morning and thought i would email Karen and just run the offer by her see if she was really interested. Well with my luck..she was. So i just sat at work all day long thinking about it with my eye just twitching...twitched all day long, by the time i got home i was like okay i just cannot do this..he ain't going anywhere, i am sick of my eye twitching and i am sure my blood pressure and stress was threw the roof by now, i just cannot do this. Slept on it...woke up the next morning and decided to be reasonable...the only person i would ever let him go to is Karen and..the best part... i know that he will be coming back home (my home!) one day as Karen will have to get bored looking at him sometime over the next 30 some years of his life. Got to thinking about that and actually was somewhat excited knowing i would just be waiting for him to come back home and what an awesome day that will be wub.gif.

Then was my next Delema, that leaves me with just Flyte for next year. I went out and was looking at the mares and all the mares i bought, i bought just for narko and i am really disapointed that i wont get to see a few of those mares crossed to him next year. But i went threw and picked out 3 that i could see crossing nice with Flyte, then the other two im just going to send out, planning to get in on the sweepstakes this spring.

I start spring semester on Monday, im starting Med school for my RN...after i get threw this first year, i have some tweaking i want to make in my program..just waiting for it all to come together and need to get threw this first semester first.

But...i will miss him SO much, he is such a special horse to me. I've got two mares bred to him due in May and the ring test is telling me they are both carrying fillys, so i have a good feeling either of them will not be going anywhere. I'm sure i will have to send a few mares over to Karens to breed to him down the line..in fact, i may have to sneak one or two over to him this spring..

Anyway,
Westwind BTU Crown Prince Narko --
Congratulations Karen..your boy is FINIALLY coming home wub.gif

I can't imagine how difficult that decision must have been, but I love your reasoning that someday he'll be back. It must make waiting for those two '09 foals that much more exciting. Good luck at school this year!

Yes, but i know he will be coming home some day...5 years from now....10 years from now...20 years from now, just that alone makes it that much easier. Because the day i get that call ..and the day he is back in my barn..that will be the greatest day ever wub.gif
