God lead us to Eddie out in German Valley, IL. We went to see him three times and had bought him on the first. We were so excited.
The day he came home to a horseless farm was a hectic one. He didn't know us, he didn't want to know us (besides what kind of food we offered) and all he was concerned about was survival. What every horse should be concerned about. That was in April 2007. He had turned 5 on April 18th and he came home on April 21st. He was just a baby.
The biggest transformation happened to us in June. We saw Parelli Natural Horsemanship on RFD-TV and right away we were hooked. We were amazed that people could gallop their horses bareback and bridleless and slid to a stop. People could actually have relationships with their horses and they wanted to be with their people. So in July 2007 we went to the Parelli Tour Stop in Madison Wisconsin and bought the Level 1 kit with the Carrot Stick, Savvy String, Halter, 12 foot line and Level 1 pack with it. As a bonus they were giving away Level 2 for free with it. God must have known I would eat up Level 1 in no time.
