About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Meet Lauryl

My raiser is a horse fanatic, if she's not spending time with me - then she's probably outside riding her horse (sometimes she'll even be riding bareback... when she doesn't have time to saddle up).
Her current horse is slowly aging, and my raiser has been saving up to purchase another horse sometime in the near future. (she is also into jumping - and doesn't really want to jump her current horse for much longer).
She happened upon a beautiful 7yr old dapple grey horse a few weeks ago, located only a "few" hours away from us.
So off WE went to go look at this "perfect" horse.  When we arrived, my raiser also found out that the barn was a "dog friendly facility" so I was allowed to come out and visit too!
My raiser fell in love with the horse, and in no time at all, I soon found out we'd be bringing a new animal home in a few days.
We welcomed Lauryl to our farm on Tuesday, and though she's not another doggy fur me to play with, she still is really cool!
My raiser is looking forward to riding and working with her newest horse, and has already enjoyed the few rides they went on.
Enjoy the few pictures below of my raiser's new horse Lauryl!

Lauryl is a beautiful horse. So happy to hear you have a new furiend, even if you can't play doggie games together. Can't wait to hear more about Lauryl and see more pictures.

my Jeannie loves horses, tho they scare her a wee bit, cos they are so big etc. But she really enjoyed reading about Lauryl. Thank you for sharing these lovely pics.

Yep, you do look bored on the "few hours" ride. But your raiser sure isn't bored. :)
