Clay and Great Bam got into town earlier this week. Jeff went back and talked to Clay on Wednesday and we’ll plan on going back mid-week to get pictures, video and more. Jeff reported that he looked good and was on the track on both Thursday (jogging) and Friday (galloping). Additionally, Clay reported that he had been in contact with his brother about buying another horse and that he is examining a couple of possibilities. Obviously, we’ll pass along more information when we hear back.
Bills have started arriving for Great Bam, so as we promised, we’ll track them on the blog so that you can follow along and better understand the costs.
In total, we have 145 Club members and our 5% owner. This generated a total starting balance of $41,250.
Our expenses to this point are:
Claim of Great Bam – $5,000
19 Days of Training (April 12 – 30) Great Bam at $60 per day – $1,140
Full Equine Blood Work Panel – $128
Thyroid Treatment & Phenylbutazone – $125.55
Therefore, our cash balance at the end of April is $34,856.45
