Hello World

rainer-door1.jpg

Summer Snow (barn name Rainer) left Emerald Downs in near Seattle, WA  and arrived at Blue Rider Farm in Eugene, OR on Thurs.  He is a 9 year old gelding with a strong racing career… 41 starts!  That says a lot about his strength and stamina.  He was selected by Devin Robel to participate in the Prodigious Fund’s 100 Day Trainer Challenge.  The goal of the Prodigious Fund is to recognize and support positive efforts made to re0home Off The Track Thoroughbreds (OTTB’s).  Five trainers are participating in this year’s challenge.

My first introduction to Rainer came while Devin was participating in a 3 Day Event competition with 2 of her personal horses and helping her students with their competitive efforts.  She needed someone for morning feedings and I offered to help.  Rainer’s personality is quietly captivating.  His athletic ability is obvious, but his years of racing experience have helped him adjust easily to change. He is a gentle giant. Devin will start working with him this week and it will be interesting to watch him in action as he starts to learn a new career.

About Alise Lamoreaux

As a teacher, photographer, digital storyteller, and writer I explore the images of my worlds and create blogs for each separate aspect of my life. My professional life includes blogs related to digital story telling with adult learners and integration of technology in the classroom. My personal blogs deal with the horses in my life: The story of Picasso Moon focuses on the future as it unfolds for a 3 year old horse moving forward from a rescue situation. His story will involve the characters he meets, natural horsemanship training, and his social development. Beau's Journey is about my blind horse and how he came to continue living a happy full life when he lost his eye sight. Beau has a sketch of him featured in the movie, War Horse. My personal and professional life combine in the Horse I Ching blog with is based on the Horse I Ching iPhone/iPad Ap that features my photography and writing. Horse I Ching is based on the iPhone App created using my photography and writing efforts. And finally, I keep a blog of my mother's poetry. She is 91 an thinks it cool to have a blog. Her words can be found on the Galloping Manifestations blog.
