Yesterday I got up at 5am to pick Pegas up. Pegas is a 15 year old Akhal-Teke stallion bred by Tito Pontecorvo and trained and owned by Eloise King. Eloise has Pegas for sale while he'll be staying with us. Pegas has done a variety of sports with Eloise from dressage to sidesaddle, endurance racing and some jumping. Pegas has no offspring. He is extremely sweet and easy going. We are very excited to have him and can't wait to start work with him, after "our California" blondie gets some rest and adjusts to his new surroundings.
Although having to go trough the worst of places, Bellevue/Seattle Enumclaw to pick him up, I only encountered 1 accident slow down en route, and smooth sailing after that. I stopped on the way back in Woodinville where I met Cathy Leddy, and she took a peek at him, and she gave me 3 Russian studbooks she'd had for years!!! Ohhhh..I'm in heaven!!! Made it well in time for the 4 o'clock ferry, our winter schedule is pretty dismal...it took us 2 full hours on the boat to get home...but..the ride is spectacular... More on Pegas soon!
Amrita Ibold, perfectly Teke crazy in every way.
