Still figuring out how to use the forum, but I think I figured the picture thing out. Talked my husband into coming to the barn with me today, he even helped me clean out the water trough....so ignore all the water in the background, Vin decided to come see what my husband was eating and I decided to snap a couple of pics. (for the record we didn't give him any snacks..lol). We've had him for almost 2 months. He has gained back some good weight and after his next vet check next week, he will begin training to get his muscle back. I thought he looks great anyway.....but I am biased:)
Yes tinyliny. That was my first thought. He is "stocky" for an Arabian, and I thought that combined with his breeding might equal a great little novice endurance horse. We are still working towards that goal, but I have actually had a blast working on just his ground manners with him...his are great, my manners are the one that need a tune up;). He is the envy of the other owners at the barn tho, he is so well trained I feel like I won the lottery with him. He definitely used to be someone's pride and joy and now he is mine;)
I LOVE his front end! Head, neck, shoulders. The way his neck ties into his withers. What a handsome guy you have! I tend to like horses that have bigger butts though, but he is so nice! I wouldn't mind owning him even though I'm not an Arab fan.
