Sally Hall had seen him out hunting, and had someone in mind who was looking for a perfect gentleman of a horse, so down he went to Urchinwood last winter, and when we stayed there as part of Ride Bare I met up with him again :-)
He is looking well - obviously relishing the much better climate they have (!) and is a great favourite with everyone, not least his new owner. He is still barefoot and does a mixture of schooling, hacking and jumping, which he seems to thrive on. He is not quite as rock-crunching as he was when he lived here, partly because the grass down at Urchinwood is unbelievably good, but nevertheless both he and his new owner seem very happy!
