‘Doby’ as he is now affectionately called is eventing with Hillary Irwin, the granddaughter of Toby’s Corner’s owners Dianne and Julian Cotter. “We were lucky enough to pick up Doby in August of 2011. He came to North Carolina, had a few months off, and has now started his new career as an event horse. Doby made himself the center of attention from the beginning and shows no signs of relinquishing that abiility any time soon! He has just started his new career with two Beginner Novice events under his belt; placing fourth at both! What a superstar! Doby knows no strangers, he is like our third lab (we have a yellow and a black – and now we have a red)! He has fit in wonderfully here and seems to be thoroughly enjoying his new career; his favorite jumps include ditches, water and liverpools. You do not find that too often! We are so happy to have the Little Irish Redhead with us and we are so looking forward to his future”.
Update – 4/3/2014 – Doby is fantastic. He just finished 4th at his third prelim at Southern Pines. He was fabulous! He will probably stay at prelim thru the year, but he already feels about ready to run intermediate- so there is a possibility of that happening this fall, or else he will finish up the year with a one star and nice long vacation! Here is his SJvideo from his last run; always things to work on, but I’m so happy with how he is coming along.
The above photo is the newest one from February 2015. His next event will be intermediate.
