Jerry showing the American horses how Australian horses buck!
After a mammoth journey taking in the length of Australia, the breadth of America and THREE countries, Jerry has arrived! Some unfortunate truck related issues cut short my trip to the AEC's (somewhere around Virginia) where I was to pick him up. Luckily Courtney Cooper (of C Square Farm) was able to transport him back to her farm where I picked him up. Let me recap his journey from the middle of nowhere in Australia to the horse hub of America, Maryland.
Brisbane to Melbourne via road - 22 hours
Melbourne to LA via air - 15 hours
LA to Georgia via road - 42 hours
Georgia to Pennsylvania via road - 14 hours
Pennsylvania to Maryland via road - 2 hours
So it's understandable that when I turned him out he wasn't quite sure if this is in fact his new home! The only reason I think he trusted me is because I have a familiar accent.. He'll have a few days off while I'm at Plantation CIC then it'll be on with the training and who knows what lies ahead for him!
