I received this lovely letter a little bit ago.  I am so happy when I get updates on the horses and ponies I have bred.  Just love to hear that they are making people happy and being good citizens!  This update is on TLF Valimar, by TLF Valinor and out of Thallene Mist xx.  

" Hello, this is Elizabeth. I am contacting you about TLF Valimar. I have been leasing him for about 6 months now from XXXXXXXXXXX. Unfortunately our lease is over and he will be returning to their farm on Saturday. I just wanted to say that he has the best deminor and the kindest disposition. He will jump from anywhere and is pretty much bomb proof. I have ridden him as an Eq horse and we have done so well!! He is so relaxed, 5 year olds have walked him around at our barn and he is so respectful and gentle. He truly is a gentle giant. He will be very missed as he leaves... 
(Pictures at the bottom are of him)
Sincerely Elizabeth"
