Another new rescue.....introducing....

Rughavens Grafitti.....aka....Biscuit!

This is my newest recruit after finding my last little warmblood mare a lovely new home.

This young fella is a branded Knabstrupper Gelding. If anybody knows more about them please do tell!!? He is a Danish wb x hannoverian and just the sweetest thing eva!!

Playing


Posing


There was a dog barking at him next door...


Still nervous of me moving...


He is 16hands at the moment and 3yrs old, and was imported recently so doubt he speaks english yet.....hehe Hes coming round to the idea of being handled and im trying to make sure i groom him as often as poss so that he learns people are nice. Hes rediculously jumpy and head shy and had the most overgrown feet, but with my sympathetic farrier we got them done to a better standard without any trauma.

He has been with me since last friday evening and has already taken to having a rug on, boots on, roller and bridle on so he must trust me a fair bit now. I even get a winnie when i walk over lol

Let me know what you think. He is a big gangly baby and a little down hill but i wouldnt be supprised if he tops 16.2hh being a wb!

Thanks,

Elz x

He's a gorgeous horse! I wasn't expecting to see him with an appaloosa pattern as you said he is a danish wb x Hanoverian. He looks like he as such a personality on him,and that is knows he looks that good. But what is a Knabstrupper?

he's cute! I like his head. can you see the whites of his eyes? That can sometimes look weird on some horses. He seems spunky. :)

Have you hugged your horse today?
