Alpharetta GA, Friday August 17, 2001The exciting news at Applewood is that Michelle Gibson's new stallion, World of Dreams, finally arrived and he is beautiful. After over 7 weeks in quarantine, Michelle finally got the phone call that all the tests were complete. After so many shipping companies, for the last leg of his journey, Michelle drove her Sundowner up to the Virginia facility and picked him up herself. They had a smooth trip.

After a few days of rest, World of Dreams is feeling good. He has settled right in to the routine at the barn, and is a real gentleman.
Marki, Michelle's boarder collie, had to accept the new member of the family and was so funny running quick circles around and around World of Dreams and Michelle.

Exciting to see in action...
The crowd was clearly pleased...
