There were so many neat stories, but one of my favorites was how Jennifer got her name. A "Name the Mustang" contest was held in Las Vegas and one little boy wrote in that his sister, Jennifer, was in Iraq and they never knew where she would be, so he wanted the horse to have his sister's name. How sweet was that for Matt to choose that name?
Top selling horse...are you interested? Sit down, y'all, because the only horse to ever bring more money in was Hail Yeah. Are you ready? Sandy Anderson, trainer for Outback Jack, paid a whopping $32,000 to get him back!!!
As for Sandy, despite him not being ridden in the obstacle course, there was still a fair amount of interest in him and he ended up selling for $1,000...which was more than a couple of the top ten horses brought in. God was good to him...and to me...because he's coming home.
