Wow!! He is lovely, he looks so,so,so demanding of respect in the second shot of him, he looks really smooth ride too, he is going to be even better looking once he is cleaned up lol, but I think you have a real sweetheart there..
I like this horse, good choice! I am a qh person also! I love there temperments! Oh, an easy way to shed a coat is Flax seed ( careful not to use to much, just a handful and be careful not to do this if it's going to be cold! Blankets!!)meal and lots of alfafa. GOOD LUCK!
