Stacy, how did you make the decision to choose Presto out of so many other foals?

“Stacy, how did you make the decision to choose Presto out of so many darlings?”

From the first time I saw Last Chance Corral adopting went on my bucket list. Something I was determined to do at some point but I also believe that the timing has to be right.

In the spring of 2016 Victoria, from Last Chance Corral sent me a text. I had made a music video featuring her foals two years before and had helped raise awareness in the years following.

Victoria told me that they were full to capacity. When Last Chance is full it means they cannot go and pick up more foals that are in need. She asked me if I could help spread the word.
And that’s when it happened.
I clicked on her site to see what I could share and I saw #117-“Press on Regardless” and I knew I had found my next horse!

It sounds a little crazy to me when I say it and on one level it looks very spontaneous. Yet on another level, I had been considering this for two years. I knew I had the appropriate facility, the understanding and the financial means to take on another horse.

It reminds me a bit of the quote:
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” – Seneca

I knew Press On Regardless this was the horse I wanted to invest my time, money and heart into.

I turned from my phone to my husband and said, “I want to buy a horse I’ve never seen in person from a photo I found on the internet.”

And as they say…the rest is history!

I’ve owned Presto now for four years. He has grown so much and I’m finally ready to start sharing his adventures
What questions do you have for me?
I’ll be posting daily from now till Monday and if you leave a question on one of my posts or blogs, I’ll be giving away a t-shirt to one winner!

    What does it all entail to get a foal at this young of age. I would think the feeding alone would be very time consuming. Can you talk more about this? Thank you

    I have been around quarter horses and Appaloosas. My Appy mare was skittish at a year old but had settled a lot when I sold her at age 9. I kept one of her foals and had him for his intire life, 27 years. He was a horse that loved people, was easy to train, a wonderful horse. Have you noticed a difference in Quarter horses and your Appaloosa?

    With Presto having a different start in life, is his training progressing like a normally weaned horse?

    Do you think that nursemaid foals have any lifetime psychological differences from foals who stayed with their mothers?

    Why did u wait 4 years to share his adventures? Did u know any of his history??When training him how did u decide what direction to take him in and what direction did u take him? Will u show him? Sell him?

    What is the most important thing that made you choose Presto over all the others?

    Hi Stacy! What is one thing that you’ve learned from Presto that you think a horse from a more “typical” background could not have taught you?

    Thank you!
