We have a very special surprise! And a true closure. I am so excited to share this news. For me, this is an extraordinary example of teamwork, belief, like mind goals, risk and chance. This would not have been possible without all the pieces working together and the result is remarkable. Yes, this is the same horse. And today he has been reunited with his papers! This is Candelite Sir Cedric also known to his inner circle as Gunner. Adopted by and loved by his mom, April Salta. Surprise April!!! Gunner was pulled from Unadilla Auction on a dark winter night in 2015 with the help of some friends. He was a colt, withdrawn, combative, labeled as dangerous. $35 dollars pulled him from his fate along with the belief and faith his life could get better. Sophia's Oasis for Equines Inc (S.O.F.E.) had an opening for this troubled soul. From NY he went to MD to begin his training with Jacqueline Nichole Curry-Flynt. It was there, and after much time with him, that April met him and it was love at first sight. During this time we found him through DNA. We soon learned that his breeder had passed away and Gunner was lost in a family dispute. His registration had been started, but not completed. The family was relieved to know of Gunner's story and Laura Zellweger has been a donor and supporter of the work SOFE had done.
