Happy anniversary

10 years ago, July 2009, Major's ad on DreamHorse read:

Majestik Mirage

Breed: Arabian
Color: Bay
Age: 6 years old
Height: 15.3 hh

Gender: Gelding
Temperament: 4 (1=calm, 10=spirited)

Six year old, 15.3H gorgeous bay gelding with black and white socks, great temperament, easy going, great on trails.

He is great in hand and saddle. Goes through water and is great on trail. Level headed and slow to react to spookies but is spunky and loves to go. Soft in the mouth! A lot of heart and will do what you ask. 

Am going to college and don’t have the time needed to make him into the great horse he will be. 

He was younger, taller and goofier looking than I had imagined. But he didn't bat an eye at the dog running between his legs. On the trail he went through water, led and followed. And my trainer at the time said "If you don't buy him, I will."

We've had days of frustration and success, but I wouldn't change a thing. Happy anniversary Major!
