I was looking for a perfect little jack to be my herdsire. I found a beautiful chocolate jack, but just as he was to be weaned the breeder cancelled the sale and returned my deposit. Shortly thereafter I found a yearling that was both beautiful and gentle, but two days before I was going to look at him, he was sold. The very next day I got a text from a friend saying he had found me "a drop dead gorgeous red jack." The reds are my favorite, and the thought of having a red jack as my herdsire was like a dream come true. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and now I knew the reason the other two jacks had slipped through my fingers -- they were leaving the pasture open for Nicholass.
Nicholass is my reminder to keep good karma flowing and keep that jolly holiday spirit all through the year.
