We raised him, Sold him we thought to a Good home that would give him time to grow, But have found things NOT SO. He was fed well, lived at a nice farm, but when purchased at 2 he was pushed a little too much into already jumping and at the same time his feet were allowed to grow to long a toe and No heel.

He has on Egg Bar shoes and should according to 2 Vets be sound again and still have a wonderful furture including Jumping.
About Stephens City, VA
Jost Hite, a German immigrant, purchased a large land grant in the northern Shenandoah Valley in 1731. Peter Stephens and a small party of German Protestants from Heidelberg, in the Palatinate, arrived about 1732 to buy and settle that land, including the site of what became Stephens City, named for the Stephens family. Although Hite's title to the land was challenged by Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, the land baron of the area, the matter was settled amicably. Town lots were laid out beginning in 1754, and on September 21, 1758, Lewis Stephens petitioned the colonial government of Virginia in Williamsburg for a town charter. The Virginia General Assembly approved the charter for the town of "Stephensburgh" on October 12, 1758.
