Explaining Odin - a thank you to Yeager

At Odin's first clinic (he was 3, it was his first time being ridden away from home), a spectator that had watched him all day approached me and observed, "He must have been loved every day of his life. I can see when he looks at each new person, he thinks 'And how will YOU adore me?'. There's not a hesitation in his mind that they do." That totally explains Odin in a way I could not have put into words myself - she was very right.
8/30/12 - Odin
8/30/12 - Odin
I'm proud to say that all of our foals grow up acting that way. They know that they are loved and they love right back. I wish we could have kept them all, but it brings me joy to hear from the owners of the ones we have sold that they still carry that confidence and sweetness with them. Thank you, Yeager, for giving us such wonderful babies!
