Sometimes you get exactly what you are looking for and you don't even know it. Meet Godot. He is our resident unicorn. The latest addition to the herd came to us in September. He arrived hours before the tenth anniversary of a dear friend's death. Sparrow, our OG, is named for him. As Godot is set up to be Sparrow's replacement on our show jumping journey- it only made sense for Godot to have a stake in his passing as well. Godot is named after a song penned by Carter. It's hard to forgot those who taught us to believe in ourselves when it felt like the world was stacked against us.
The race horse story is always important, just like our stories are important. It tells so much about where we come from and who we are. Our past carry some projection of who we are set up to be. Under the jockey club name, Gun Street, Godot sold as a yearling for $100,000. (And we thought Jane sold for a lot of dough!) His sire came by the name Sidney's Candy, who won over $1,000,000 in under seventeen races. When you meet Godot the first thing you might notice is that he does not scream race horse. At four years old, Godot is the most mild mannered, quiet baby horse. He's reasonably unflappable whether it's tents, scary jumps, crowds of horses, or umbrellas.
We can't wait to see what he becomes. We are working on building his muscles and strength. In the meantime, he can't wait to come challenge you in the arena. You can help his personality bloom by letting him be your mirror. I bet he will share with you a thing or two about yourself!
