Wiebe has been sold!!! Congratulations,
Yaffa, of Issaquah, WA!!!!
"I love Wiebe. In fact, everyone loves him, from my trainer, to my farrier, to my vet. He is such a sweet gentle soul, how could anyone not fall in love with him? Of course, he's not perfect, but then who is, horse or human? I've discovered that he can be a bit stubborn, and he still has his nervous spooky moments as he continues to settle in to his new home, a process that hasn't been helped by a progression of the craziest winter weather in years: everything from gale-force winds to torrential downpours to snow and ice. So considering all that, he's doing great. He really has an exceptional temperament, especially when you think about all he's been through with being sold in the Netherlands, going through quarantine, traveling to the US, being at Laurie's, and then at the barn in Enumclaw, and now with me. The poor guy has had so much upheaval in his short life; it's amazing that he's as steady as he is. I'm taking things slowly and spending lots of time with him and I think he's definitely figuring out that I'm his new person. My trainer is also a huge believer in taking things slow and not pushing horses, so our sessions are all designed to help Wiebe and I get used to each other and end on a good note for him. After all, he'll be with me for the rest of his life so there's no hurry. My trainer recently commented that being around Wiebe has confirmed her belief that she'd like to have a Friesian of her own one day, and believe me, coming from my trainer, that is high praise.
I also would like to say how
great you and Laurie were to work with, your patience, openness, and willingness
to answer any and all questions, and how in Wiebe's case, it was very evident
that Laurie really cared about what type of home Wiebe went to."
