Hi Elizabeth,

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 to have them, though. I am so proud of him - his heritage and everything he has achieved!

Seven is doing very well. We can now hack out on our own for about an hour at a time. His canter has greatly improved, although we are still working at strengthening his right lead. He has been enjoying a short vacation for the last week and a half. I've somehow managed to injure 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 a 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

Hi Elizabeth,

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 and
as soon as I get the all clear we'll start working. He really is a very sweet guy. He let me groom all over him and clip his bridle path 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 you give and do you blend it up or anything?) and do you ever have horses refuse it?

Thanks a bunch,

Elizabeth's Note:

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.

Hi Elizabeth,

I just wanted to share with everyone about Fuhrluck. I've decided to 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 to the 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 time.

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