We are very excited with the arrival of our new Herdsire, Short Assets Fire Truck.
The first time I saw “Truck” was at The Celebration NMDA show in July, 2011. He was shown by Donnie Kellett for Myers Meadows, Bodie and Kerrie Myers. Well, he did outstanding that day winning First in a very competitive Jack – 2 Year & Older class and Grand Champion Jack. I noticed he was “For Sale” and pondered for awhile. I really wanted a short-backed, stocky, beautiful red jack with excellent legs and confirmation, to match-up with many beautiful jennets at our farm. I also had the task of convincing my husband that I was not crazy for adding another jack. But, he did know for some time that I desired a red jack so when I asked, it was not completely a surprise.
He also remembered Truck from The Celebration and thought he was really a beautiful boy. Well, it was decided that we would purchase Truck and bring him out of the warm, arid climate of Florida to an area with a colder winter. Poor Truck, if he only knew, he would have never stepped into our trailer. Well, he now resides in Tennessee and I JUST LOVE his temperament. He is so sweet, gets kissed and scratched every day and is such a gentleman. Thank you very much to Bodie and Kerrie Myers for allowing this lovely boy to be part of our family. He is a gem!
