Hi guys, I was living in Randwick at Gai Waterhouse’s stables helping out each morning starting at 4:30am. I am a very handsome thoroughbred, but not as fast as they wanted me to go. So Gai said to take me to the Camden sales. It’s a little daunting going through this large sale yard, but this really cool guy called Justin with a funny hat started bidding for me and bought me. I was very happy with this as I shared the journey to his property Snowy Wilderness with a few other horses, one was called Henry who has become my best friend.
On the journey we got stopped by the police, but Justin talked them into letting us continue our journey without any fine. We also stopped at the pub in Berridale as Sarah’s boy friend was there, everyone in the pub came out to see us, and for the first time in my life I felt really proud to be who I am.
When we got established at Snowy Wilderness, Justin started riding me and we really gelled together and as I had been already been taught how to open & close gates, I became one of 2 lead horses for Justin. He also checked out Henry for this role, but even though Henry is my bestie, he does day dream a lot and you cannot day dream if you are going to be a lead horse.
