Talking Introducing Chief

Finally found my hubby a short stocky trail horse to ride with me. He is possibly the sweetest horse I have ever met and is so willing, albeit rusty and a bit green still. He came from the Warm Springs reservation in Oregon as a weanling and is hardship registered with ApHC. Haven't cleaned him up yet (just brought him home last night) or taken great pictures, but I snapped a few with the phone.

He reminds me a lot of an appy x percheron I know. He is handsome, but overweight. I love the Warm Springs area! So beautiful.

Thanks, all! He wasn't ridden for a year before we got him and he is already packing my novice husband around (I get on him first to work out any kinks).

@EquineBovine, he is a chestnut blanket appy with tons of varnish roan, I think (I am not 100% in appy colors!)

@TinyLiny, yes, I know he's fat, lol. We have him on a diet. I was very glad he's stout, since he is only 14HH and both my husband and I are 5'10". I also thought he may have some draft in him, and he very well may...the reservation rounded up all the weanlings and sold them, so no one knows his lineage.
