Moonshine & Kirann

Moonshine & Kirann

Most of us have probably wished at one time or another for a pony under the tree on Christmas morning. Well Moonshine won’t be going anywhere near the Gable’s Christmas tree but he’ll be there in spirit as this wonderful family celebrates the holiday. It gives us great happiness to announce that Moonshine has been adopted! He left SAFE Harbor yesterday for his new home at Gold Creek where he and Kirann will be training to compete in jumpers.

Kirann has had her eye on Moonshine from the very moment he stepped off the trailer at SAFE Harbor when he returned from training with Andrea Lucianna at Half Trak Farm. He came home from training with the highest praise from Andrea, which was that if she’d had a client looking for a horse his size, she would have kept him at Half Trak Farm, that’s how much she enjoyed this horse. Kirann and her mom happened to be at SAFE the night that Moonshine was delivered back home, and I remember remarking to her that he might be a good fit for her. Kirann had been riding Maggie for us all summer, but Maggie had just been adopted. Kirann immediately started taking lessons on Moonshine with Brittney, and the two of them just clicked very nicely. The Gable’s decided to take Moonshine on trial and keep him in training with Brittney during that time. During their pre-purchase examination, their vet discovered a small mass on Moonshine’s sheath that had to be removed, so that extended the trial a bit, but the procedure was successful and once he was healed up, it was time to make the adoption official!

We couldn’t be happier that Kirann and her family have adopted a horse from SAFE. They are wonderful, generous people who do so much for this organization, so it’s very fitting that they should have one of our horses to enjoy. Moonshine is a super little horse, and we can’t wait to see what he and Kirann get up to next summer. We wish them the very best!!
