Samson is a 6 1/2yr Haflinger gelding that I purchased from Orlando's Dixie Stampede. For 2 1/2 years the people at Dixie neglected him and all but ignored him and for some reason that drew me to him. I took over grooming him and spending time with him. That was almost a year ago. Orlando's Dixie Stampede has since closed down and I found my chance to purchase my little devil! Its been a LONG road with Samson. He had A LOT of issues with his manners due to being neglected which I am slowly working out. He is my first horse which makes it that much more of a challange but with the advice of a couple of friends he's turning out to be quite a good horse. =) He knows who his mommy is too. When he gets in trouble with other horses he comes running for me. <3 He my one and only!!!
Haha yeah he's pure evil. He may look sweet and adorable but he's more than happy to try to take a bite out of your arm and then give you his big watery eye look. Its taken me a little over a month to get him to stop his nipping. He used to nip people at Dixie to get attention so now he does it all the time. Now he just wiggles his lips over you like he wants to, but knows better.
I'm really mad at myself for not taking pictures of him when I first saw him. He hadnt been groomed in well over a year. His tail was almost completely black and was compacted into one giant blob of poo. His coat looked like a dark chestnut, and his main was a grey blob of grease and dirt. =( No one would ever believe it by looking at his pics now. Heres a few more. =D
