Hi Vanessa! I bought Tullymor's Out of the Blue (affectionately called Oliver or Ollie) from Lauren Ochs 2 years ago yesterday! I am so thankful every day that he's in my life! We just started our second season eventing Beginner Novice and we ended up 4th out of 12 at our first rated event of the season at King Oak Farm in MA (in a division where he was the smallest one against big TBs and WBs!!) we hope to qualify for AECs (US eventing championships) in NC this year and need just one more qualifying score!! :) He just has so much heart, has the biggest personality in the barn, and is a local celebrity in the horse community where we live!! I absolutely adore him!!!
