Well, a while ago, I posted pics of a horse I was looking at, Twitty, and mentioned how I was afraid that he'd be sold before I could buy him... Well, he's sold. -.- BUT my trainer called me this morning telling me about her gelding, Genie, who I've known since he was born, too, and she was saying how they can't find a home for him, etc, etc. and asked if I wanted him for $5000 - $6000 (he's listed as $20,000) I was in shock. I asked why so little? And she said her sister (Genie's owner) wants to be able to see him from time to time and likes me a lot and said if I like him. . . So I was about ready to jump out of my skin! I was SOOOOO excited!!! AND whats better, is Genie's a Saddlebred!!
I have always ridden and loved saddlebreds, but never thought I could afford one and now I'm looking at one for close to nothing!
I rode him today (on friday the thirteenth, no less) and he'd been inside all day and its cold and raining. I was expecting a monster. He was VERY forward and fresh but no misbehaving! My trainer told me a LONG time ago, when I first rode him that you either love him or hate him, that's just his personality. Annnnnd, I love him!
He is very in-your-face friendly and can be mouthy and fidgetty but he is always sweet and is a pleasure to ride. I like him a lot. <3
As a two year old a LONG time ago:
These pics don't really do him justice. ^^ If I do get him, I may grow his forelock out a lot. Most of these pics are from march, but his forelock has been shaved quite a bit, so I'd like to see it grown out.
Here's two from today taken with my phone's crappy camera. >< I couldn't get good pics of him cause I was either on him, holding him or holding another horse. Lol
His Registered name is 'Paradocs Genie' and he's by 'Kabuki' and out of 'Salute Sorceress' (THE MOST EVIL MARE I HAVE EVER MET) - his mommy broke his jaw three times before he was weened. O.o
He's also 16 something hands and 9 years old and does saddleseat, trails, western, hunt seat, jumping, etc. He's really nice
His face, to me, looks very goofy kinda like a puppy. :)
OH and his sire is drop dead gorgeous.
