A very curly Curly.

So I traded one of my mares for a curly... don't ask me why. He's the first gelding I've ever owned. He's suppose to be very nice trail guy who can be ridden infrequently and still behave (which is what my time schedule needs). Poor boy has no tail but has enough sass to make up for it. He's also a bit of a chunk. Only 6yrs old so there's lots of miles ahead for this boy.

his tail! he is a pretty boy! Can't wait to see pics of him when he trims down

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Well hello fellow Curly owner! We caught another one! Curlies are great, once you get to know him, you'll think he's the sweetest horse ever.

He is quite fat! He's also what you would call an "extreme" curly. They are super Curly in the winter time, and will shed out completely in the summer. His tail will probably lose the little bit of hair it does have, mane and forelock will shed out, and chances are he's going to be bald in several spots on his body. (Shoulders, butt, neck) Any place he can itch really easily on something.

Flyspray, flyspray, flyspray!

Do you know what his breeding is? My Curly's grandsire is Bad Warrior, and comes from the Earnie Hammerick lines. Very old school.

Afraid this boy didn't come with any papers... though he looks bred well enough that I wouldn't be surprised if he had some somewhere. I just may write the previous owner for more info.
I plan on buying him a full body flysuit with flymask.

I love that wild look in his eyes! :P

He's such a plump muffin. It'll be fun seeing him all fit and cozy home :)
