Does this guy look familiar to anyone?

This is my retired horse A Walk In The Clouds, and I don't know much about his past. He came to me as Vincent Van Gogh, he is 16.2/3, a warmblood cross, around 19 years old, give or take a year or so. Was pretty dappled when I got him and has since turned fleabitten. He is very educated, jumped around hunter and eq jumps, had a counter canter, extended trot, half pass, every other tempis, and haunches and shoulder in, these are just the things I knew how to ask for, so someone trained him quite well before I got him. I got him in June of 2002, so if anyone thinks they knew him before hand I would love to know!

Had you been local to here, I would have actually questioned your post. There was a horse that was moved into our barn that looked a lot like him-same face to. He did jumpers until he suffered from a pretty bad suspensory injury and has been retired from jumping permanently(other than crossrails and 2 foot fences). You guys look good!

My2Geldings, my horse had a suspensory injury on his front right, it became a reocurring problem which is why we retired him actually.

I should also add, when I got him he had EPM, he responded well to treatment so was able to be shown and ridden again.
