[B]I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisa Roberston of Royal Legend Arabians in Byron, Texas.
Lisa has leased Saareef for the next 2 years and he will be standing there.
I am SO grateful for her, as I do not think he would have made it through the winter where he was!
Several of you know that my financial situation made it impossible for me to keep him with me (I lost my farm), and he was housed temorarily at a "friends" home. They are QH people and did not understand him at ALL! He was injured 4 times in the 6 months he was there, was at least 150-200 lbs under weight. Lisa has been very patient with me calling to check on how Saareef is healing from the injuries he incurred just days before the move, and has even sent me photos of him in his new home. He has a huge paddock all to himself, and I am sure he thinks he has gone to heaven.
Hopefully in 2 years I will be able to be back on my feet and able to bring him home. I miss him terribly, but I know this is the best thing for him and an opportunity to for him breed some outstanding mares.
My mares are at a different friends place, but she had no room for another stallion there. The mares are doing very well, are fat, sassy & happy.
I would also like to thank Bill Blackman, who was the hauler. He did a wonderful job getting Saareef to Texas from Michigan. He was where he said he would be, when he said he would be there.
When he got tied up due to a semi accident closing the highway he was on, he called & told me he would be late and why. He was very understanding when I called to check on how Saareef was handling the move (he has been in a trailer accident and is slightly claustrophobic), and was very re-assuring to me.
Again, thank you to everyone who wrote to express their support and who inquired about Saareef.
And BLESS YOU Lisa!!!
