Meet my new boy Cowboy! I got him on July 5th 2013, so I have only had him for a few days. He is a wonderful wonderful horse! Kid safe as they come, calm, and pretty to boot. He is going to be mine and my younger brothers horse (Something for him to play with and learn from), and something for me to gain my confidence back with.
Cowboy is a 16 yr old gelding. Not sure what breed. He is gaited, so if anyone wants to take a shot at his breed, feel free. He is heavy boned, so I'm thinking he may be a mix of something. Who knows.
He was running loose on a 500 acre farm and he never had his feet trimmed, they just stayed trimmed from his constant moving over such a large field. They don't look awful (or do they?), but the farrier is coming out sometime next week.
He has been rode every day up until the last 2 months where he was just out in a pasture. He is a very spoiled boy as he got not only the whole 500 acres of pasture, but also sweet feed, watermelons, and whatever else they decided to give him.
He has been vet checked and is sound and healthy. I was just wanting to know how he looked conformation wise. He is older, and he is sound now. I just want to know if he is going to be sound for the next few years. He is just going to be a trail horse around the house, and possibly go to a couple shows later this summer. Nothing too strenuous.
Sorry for the novel. :)
