Ohmygod I love Romeo.

The picture of him standing on the hay - good lord he is attractive. haha. I'm so in love!!!!

This post has used the word "love" far too much but I don't even care - he is stunning.

I agree that picture seems to sum him up! I just LOVE him. Blue- I know it was asked, don't know if you answered. Are you still considering selling him, just asking out of curiosity! You've made so much progress, what a handsome man.

Yes, I'll be looking for a new home for him. I bboard my horses and he isn't built to do the kind of riding I do, endurance. He will be staying until I find him the perfect home.

I can't believe I missed this thread. I don't spend as much time on the forum as I used to, so I miss some good stuff, but this story is quite something. Beautiful horse, great owner and handler. Can't wait to hear more about him and what you guys are up to

Marvelous boy! Thank god you came by him... I HATE to see such beauty go to waste. Hell, I hate that ANY horses end up in the slaughter houses but that's a cold hard reality for another discussion in and of itself....

Congrats on a gorgeous gorgeous boy. I probably would have done the exact same thing (even though I can't afford a 4th horse; which is the reason I don't go to auctions not even to just look LOL).

I just wanted to provide a final update for this thread. Romeo was doing well with having people stand above him, and all forms of ground work were going really well. He allowed people to approach him in the pasture for a pet, he was leading and yielding to pressure well, he was easy to deworm, gets an A+ from the farrier, and packed a saddle blanket around without batting an eye. I felt he was ready for the right person to come along and take him to the next level, with my schedule I just didn't have the time to both start my three year old under saddle and further his training.
After filtering through many buyers, and refusing some who made offers, I finally found(or should I say she found us?) the perfect buyer. Romeo liked her right away, and she has the time and knowledge to continue his training, and most importantly she is willing to take the time to get him where he needs to be. I had a very hard time letting him go, but I'm so happy to see him in what looks like such a great home. thanks again for all your help and support

I just read this whole thread. I'm glad to see the story has a happy ending!

I'm glad you saved him- what a beautiful horse!

I'm sure you will be missed but he'll be happy having a job with his new owner.
