Thanks!!! Biscuit is a cutie patootie and such a sweet boy. He wasn't very well taken care of when I got him...he is in hog heaven at the ranch. Every now and then he channels a way back Arabian ancestor and gallops around the pasture, tail flagging, high knee action and snorting to beat the band. He is so funny.
By the way, the Arabians there are all straight Egyptian bred. There are several of them that have the clubfoot, high heel. The owner showed her horses extensively years ago and some of them are elderly now but still have that Arabian spirit that is so endearing. The stable manager is my riding buddy and she has a darling Arabian mare that is just fabulous. If I got another horse it just might be an Arabian!
Haha, aww, Biscuit sounds like he is getting some lovin' =] I don't know how anyone couldn't love on a horse that cute!
My baby has the club foot, too; I was originally looking for a fully trained horse in WTC that I could train to jump, but when my farrier heard about the club foot he said he might not be able to jump. I loved him so much, I bought him anyways; and my farrier took one look at his clubfoot and said he'd be fine to jump =] I'm hooked on Arabs, they have quite the personality, haha. Everyone at the barn where I board him says he's more like a person than a horse =]
