We haven’t updated Deeds’ page in a while.  He spent his summer at a foster home up in Stanwood, where he was a companion to an older mare.  We have now moved him down to a foster home in Redmond, where he has a nice dry paddock and shelter and a buddy, a warmblood gelding of the same age and size, that also has some physical issues.  We’ve decided to downgrade Deeds to companion status.  He can be lightly ridden if he were given some maintenance for his arthritis, but he would be equally happy to just be a pet.  He made fast friends with his new buddy, Odin.  Deeds is a happy, sweet horse that loves to just hang out and lick your hand.
