Talking My First and Present Love

Hello all! This is my first thread and I thought it'd be best to introduce my baby Gunner. He is a 14 year old quarab gelding with a fantastic disposition and willing character. He's got plenty of spunk and keeps me on my toes, but I trust this horse implicitly. Gunner is the first horse I've ever owned, although I've ridden sporadically throughout my life. We were finally in a position that I could have my dream realized and with some serious research and many miles of driving to meet other horses I finally have found my boy! Please no critique or unpleasant comments please, this is merely an introduction and sharing my horsey with my fellow horse lovers. I can't wait to get to know more on my journey of being a horse owner and rider!

That's one big, stout, beautiful boy! I love a nice bay. How tall is he?

I'm not entirely sure, I think somewhere around 15.3-15.5. He's a big boy for sure, has a wonderful gait and speed like you can't believe. I love his size combined with his more delicate arabian features.

In all honesty, bays aren't my all time favorites but Gunner just stood out amongst the many horses I went and looked at. He's got a unique personality and really, I think he's just gorgeous. His mane and tail are so thick, love braiding them. I'm so glad I got him, I love his looks. :) I'm glad that I joined this forum, there are so many beautiful horses on here.
