Happy B-day Swoop!

As of today is my horses B-day he is 8yrs old and i have had him now for 4years! He is the best horse i've ever owned and/or trained in my past 19years of riding and training. Its hard to imagine when i first got him he was completely crazy bc he was a 4 yr old TB that had been left in a field to do nothing with for the first 2 yrs of his life and the second 2yrs he was abused. He is so smart and so calm now i trust my 5 yr old nephew on him even when my nephew was only 3! He does have his personlity and only one other person has been able to ride him besides me and that's my best friend and only bc she rides him like i tell her to, but that just shows he is a mommys boy and a once in a life time horse. My trainer always said, a real horse person goes thru life looking for that one horse that changes theyre entire way of understanding and loving horses, that one horse that is "the one" and knows they will never seperate from them, and fortunately i only have to wait 21 yrs for mine and now i have him and will never ever sell him! He may be worth a ton of money now but he is priceless to me and has taught me more about horses and how to ride than any other horse i have ever met!

Sorry its so long an mushy i just really love him, he has been there for me thru everything and i dont know what i would do with out him, he's my best friend! Heres a couple pics of him, i even have a tattoo of him on my back!

And heres a really old one when we were schooling some fences like 2yrs or 3yrs ago!
