    Beau was a looker, that's for sure! I know I will never have another horse that was as pretty as he was. He just caught your eye!

    Oh yea, until his later years, he really just always looked like he was lolly-gagging through the pattern. And then we'd stop the clock. He covered serious ground!



    I'm pretty much the only one wearing a helmet up here too. I honestly can NEVER remember ever seeing another adult anywhere wearing a helmet, besides me and my mom. (which I think it really sad after 20-some years of doing this). But I don't care; I'm going to protect my head!!

    Thanks for the clarification. I just looked for that AQHA article I read that I thought I saved, but I must not of. I just remember reading it and thinking that Red must not be a red roan (technically).

    If there was a smiley with grabby hands, I'd be using it quite often on this thread. ( :

    Our redhead Jazzie - she's a real sweetheart but always getting into something - sometimes more like a dog than a horse I think.

    Don't mind if I do ;)
    Red is a 9 year old OTTB gelding, 16.2 1/2 hands. One of the kindest, most level headed horses I have ever met- especially for such a youngin' and TB!

    Ignore some of the confo shots, just wanted to posted this to show off his gorgeous coat and brick-house build!



















    And here he is prior to me buying him during the jumpers phase of an event he was in.

    Gotta love a red that is just solid....red. Hardly even a hint of a star. He looks awesome!

    Thanks! That is why I fell in love with his sale ad, I saw all that red and was like OH MY GOSH NO WHITE?! People think he's boring to look at but I think he looks so classy in everything because there isn't any white to distract the eyes.

    That's why I started this thread. I think these red beauties are far from boring and I just love seeing all them here with different jobs. :)
