Introducing Roman!

Finally got some pictures uploaded of my gorgeous boy. He is an 18 year old Arabian gelding. Note on the side pictures, he wasn't standing on level ground so he might look a bit high in the back end. What do you think?











Shoo fly, don't bother me...


My favorite pic of him! Taken last year I think, we were feeding hay.

I'd like to see him on flat ground because he looks like a horrible saddle fitting time lol.

But his face is adorable. And he looks very sweet.

Yeah, several people in chat thought he was sway back. But I don't think he's major swayed back, compared to pictures I've seen. XD I'll try to get another picture.

He's cute! Looks a lot like my friend's Arab gelding in color. Siege is tall (16hh) and racing-slender, though.

This is in no way intended to be mean, but he seems to be VERY tubby based on those pics. Not cute pony tubby, but seriously overweight.

I am a bit curious about his wrinkly skin on his neck. Has he always been like that?

Sometimes it can be associated with dehydration, but this is not the case, I am sure.

I know he is a tad () overweight. So trying to fix that.

As far as I can remember he has had them. He has a pond (probably not best :/) to get water from, plus another one and a creek in the woods, though he's hardly down there.
