Spencer meets Dr. Perkins!

Spencer goes to sleep a stallion...

19 hundred pounds vs 99 pounds.

But the one with the most drugs - WINS!

..and wakes up

a gelding.

Watching Dr. P and Jennifer today was like watching a dance. They were so proficient at their jobs. For Spencer, it was the dance of de-nuts.

He's going to be a bit sore in that area for awhile. But when he feels better, guess what? He gets the one wish he's wanted all his life. To be part of a herd.

Spencer is normally distrustful and very tricky to get a halter onto. But this morning when I let him know that big day was coming where he could run and play and graze with other horses, he stopped and made it so easy for me to put his halter on his head. I'm not sure if he realized he was going to have to give up 2 pounds of his impressive-ness to get there, but get there, he will...and soon!

Go Spencer!

Mel, you've said it so perfectly. He's got a long ways to go, but we'll get him there. And it will exciting.
