Well, he's home!!
Who would have thought from selling Duffy, to trying out a load of horses from 4-10, from fresh broke to medium level.. I would end up with a three year old stallion.
I didn't even go to try him out, I went with the intentions of trying out a 6yo mare and we didn't fit, the breeder said I have another I'd like to show you.. and it went down hill from there :P
He's 3,5years old.
16.3hh at the moment.
Don Frederico is the father, a Weltmeyer mother.
I have never. Ever. EVER ridden such a placid wb. No joke, I test rode him in an outdoor jumping schoo, tried to see if he would stress in and out of the jumps, corners, a mare was being lunged.. he didn't bat an eye lid.
Vet check last night, and we loaded him straight up. He's never had boots on, so instead of travel boots I put on brushing boots. He walked a funny step, then paused at the ramp and loaded straight on.
Hours drive and he unloaded without a sweat or stress and walked on the yard like he'd bee there forever.
I had every intention of gelding. My trainer said keep him whole, providing I can control him.
So, without further ado.. pictures!
The close head shot is not me riding, and I am fully aware his feet need doing o.0 poor fella! Plus side, tamed his mane and he no longer looks like a freisian ahah!
