Just wanted to let you know that I got Seven's papers today. Thanks!
Sad to say but I had completely forgot all about them. I'm not
planning on ever selling him and I'm not going to race him so
his papers were not in the forefront of my mind. I am very excited
them, though. I am so proud of him - his heritage and everything
Seven is doing very well. We can now hack out on our own for about
hour at a time. His canter has greatly improved, although we are
working at strengthening his right lead. He has been enjoying a
vacation for the last week and a half. I've somehow managed to
my hip and can't ride until I see my doctor on Monday.
I don't have any new photos of him right now but I am including
portrait that I did of him. This is only the third time ever in
my life I've attempted painting and as you can see it isn't a perfect
likeness or anything. But I just
thought it would be fun.
Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
Amanda and Seven

I just thought you could add this picture when you got Seven's
(Fuhrluck's) success page started. He went out with my Arabian
gelding, Ghazal, yesterday and they didn't even blink at each other.
He followed Ghazal around like a puppy and they really got along
great. I'm hoping to introduce him to the rest of the herd by Monday.
I'm also scheduling a chiropractor to come out in the next week
as soon as I get the all clear we'll start working. He really is
very sweet guy. He let me groom all over him and clip his bridle
just standing there like a pro.
Also, if you get some spare time I had a question about your feeding
program. It says that you feed garlic in the warmer months. I was
just wondering how much and how you feed it (as in how much do
give and do you blend it up or anything?) and do you ever have
Thanks a bunch,
As for the garlic, we buy the granulated garlic at Sam's Club
or Costo and I give a big shake or two on top of the feed (about
2 to 3 tablespoons). Start with a little garlic and slowly increase
the amount each day.Never make quick changes to a horse's feed.
Our horses all seem to like it. It is good for the immune
system and makes their manure less attractive to the flies. It
does help. We notice a difference if we run out of it.

I just wanted to share with everyone about Fuhrluck. I've decided
call him Seven (for luck) b/c of his registered name and b/c he
passed his vet check on 7/7/07.
He was a little nervous and worked
himself into a good sweat in our round pen. He was nickering
other horses and I can tell he misses his pasture buddies already.
I'm going to introduce him to his new buddy, my 18 year old
Arab gelding tomorrow. I wish I could do justice in expressing
how beautiful he is. He can really move! I am very excited about
getting him into a work schedule and getting on him for the first
Off-the-track Thoroughbred Fuhrluck and his new mom Amanda Sharritt.

I've already gotten several compliments on how nice he looks from
different boarders at the barn. Several of them had already heard
you when I told them how I purchased Seven. Everyone around here
seems to know about Bits &Bytes and they all have positive
say. Buying this horse feels a little bit like inheriting a very
large extended family. You just never know when you might bump
"relative." So thank you very much for all your hard work
dedication to these wonderful horses. And please pass on my thanks
Terry and her family as well.
