Welcome Poe!

On Thursday, Poe -- as in Edgar Allan -- was welcomed onto the farm. He is a 9 yr old Clydesdale that came from Tennessee. Here, in Georgia, we might as well spell his name as "Po" as "We're in the Po House Now!" He brought along his buddy, Butler, a 9 yr old Friesian, who is being evaluated by Jessie for training.

Poe has plenty of driving and trail experience which is perfect for Jessie's Peters Creek Farm lesson program and to teach me how to drive. We have already started him this weekend on "Jessie's Miracle Concoction" to get Poe back up to where he should be in weight. We also began some light duty work for him to begin building muscle, which he seemed to enjoy immensely.

Poe became acquainted over the fence with the herd of boys he'll be grazing with in the near future; however, he was much more interested in our grass than anything else since he had to share his pasture with 22 other horses. He'll remain with his buddy, Butler, for the time being since Jessie's watching their grass intake and limiting them to 4-5 hours per day on a 2-acre paddock.

We hope he's as happy as he looks with us.
