Miss Fleur is an old broad. She was owned by Bill Neyland for years, boarded on the property that was donated to Henry’s Home, and we decided to keep them both on when the rest of the horses moved. Fleur is a registered Arabian, age 26 in 2020, meaning she would be about 80 in human years. She and her daddy used to saddle up and go out for an hour or two trail ride a couple times a week. Bill was also age 80, so they made quite a team, and Bill was an inspiration to us all, showing us that we could still be riding at his age.
In the spring of 2020, Bill died. We had promised him to give her a good life, take good care of her, if anything ever happened to him. So that is how she came to be a permanent member of our herd. She enjoys her alone time, but she is also enjoying getting spa days, taken out on the trail rides with the rest of the herd, something she is not used to, and getting a lot more attention with now dozens of mamas and daddy’s. We believe Bill is glad she is so well cared for, and is still watching over her, and us, every day.
