He is gorgous!!! I love his blaze (does it still count as a blaze... even though he's a paint? Or is it called something else because its so wide?)
Anyway, he's beautiful!!!!!!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Dang he is big! I love his color.
You know what is really funny? I used to ride a paint gelding named Cheerio. He is my paint's brother.

He even looks like a big cheerio with a splash of milk! Awesome!

And a big wide blaze like that is called a Bald face usually. Also heard it called an Apron face.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.
