Talking I've Been Bitten by the "You Can Never Have Just One" Draft Bug 0_0

My husband surprised me with a horse I've had my eyes on for a year. He wasn't for sale then, but when I laid eyes on him the first time at my friend's ranch, I had the same feeling I had with Tenacity and my husband and I knew he would be mine one day.

Belgian gelding, between 4 and 5 years old. Broke to ride, but hasn't been saddled in a while (so let's call that green broke).

I'm beginning driving lessons soon for him and Tenacity (and myself of course).

I think Tenacity will be happy. She's alone in pasture and looks down sometimes :(

Though, they're different breeds, they might actually fit for a casual team. I think they'll look great together, and even their right facial markings are pretty darn identical!

He's not perfect, but not half bad for $1,000. Aside from pigeon toes and low heels, we'll see what the vet has to say next week before I bring him home.
His name is Strawberry (eeew), but I'm changing it to Grandin (named after Temple Grandin)

"All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and she'll listen to me allll day."
