I looked here and looked there. Not really expecting to find the one for some time. I talked with Phillip and Silva and kept looking - I talked with my vet, farrier, mom, and friends! And I kept looking. And, then one day, a horse listed online caught my eye ... only problem was he was snowbound and furry in Michigan! But we got through the snow and fur, and so Katchi now has a brother - just a few weeks younger, and what do you know... he's a bay (he had to be a bay - 30 years of riding - always a bay!). Tall, dark, and handsome!

As the new pony has been here a few weeks and we're getting to know him, we've been working madly on coming up with a new barn name for him (SORRY MICHELLE!) - and the "no name horse" finally has a name! Mi. Pronounced "my" - for "the Michigan horse" and also for Mi Taylor, the race trainer in National Velvet. It seems to suit him quite well, and he's already learning that his new name = lots of treats. So, he seems to be adjusting through his identity crisis as well as can be expected for any "no name horse!"
It will take a few weeks to get Mi running full speed and me able to hang on, but look for us out and about very soon!
