I couldn't resist hiring Tristan Cherney on as a stable hand. He dropped out of school at 17 years old to backpack around the world. His parents supported him up to a point. He arrived here at Terre d'Ange with no money and a desire to make something of himself. I can't pay him much right now, but at least he has room and board. He is quite handy around the stables and has a great sense of humor. Best of all, he loves animals just as much as I do. I hope that having a steady job and home will help him feel like he belongs here.
