LOL I'm in Minnesota, so a ways away from NJ, which is too bad because next week is finals, I'd lend you my lil boy! lol

Im not sure how long he's staying for, I will have to find that out. I assume awhile, because when I asked my instructor who she acquired him she simply said "one of my boarders owns him". Well I already knew that, I guess he's been in training in CA, then was in Las Vegas for a show.. So yea.. he gets around.
Oh darn! :(

That's awesome that a someone that boards there owns him! They sure are lucky people!
I'm sure he'll have a very successful showing year!

I hope you get to ride him too! He must be so smooth.

I can't believe how much he is insured for. I don't understand how they can make those figures legitimate.

He's beautiful! So no one's allowed to touch him? Why? Are they worried about people getting hurt or that they'll hurt him?

I can only imagine it's a liability issue. Him being a stallion even with simple petting he could bite or injure someone. By not allowing anyone to touch him it also makes it less stressful for him as I could imagine he would end up having people over the fence playing with him all day long. Also helps prevent people trying to feed him things.

If I had a horse that was worth that much I would probably add some electrical fencing to

Yup, no one other than Arc's owner, the owner of the stable and another trainer are allowed to touch or handle him. I suppose it keeps down on the treats he'd get, as I've been there times and I've wanted to give him treats, and have wanted to dote and love up on him.

I think that if I had a show horse such as Arc boarded out somewhere, where there are a lot of people around, I don't think I'd want anyone to touch him either. Not because I'm selfish, I just wouldn't want anyone to hurt him, or for him to hurt anyone.

I've spent a lot of time on the grass next to his round pen, just watching him, he has this kind of energy about him that is magnetic. All of the other horses around him are laid back, they're grazing, or wanting someone to come and give them attention. Not Arc, he's always prancing around his pen, he's so restless it seems. He fits my definition of a stallion. I've only ever been around him (a stallion), but in my mind, he's what a stallion is if that makes any sense at all. To me, he's a wild restless spirit.

It's easy to see why he does so well in the show ring, when you see him, your eyes are locked on him, and you don't want to look away. His glow and personality are awe inspiring. I have yet to see anyone work with him, but I bet even just his training sessions are exhilarating.
