Well, it's a long story but I decided to get my sister a horse, finally. I've noticed that she's been more active around her "care for" horse, a TB gelding who grazes on our paddocks because his owner is pregnant and she wants us to keep an eye on him. She also allowed us to do groundwork with him. But I know that this horse won't stay in my sister's care forever, because the owner is due in two weeks. I've thought about buying Fleet (the horse) for her, but he's a one-person horse and his owner loves him dearly. So I searched for a horse and I found a lovely gelding for free because the owner wanted to do a different riding discipline (dressage) and this horse is a hunter/jumper/trail riding horse. He's 9 years old and seems perfect for my sis. My sister has been riding for 6 and a half years. She knows how to jump and is confident around horses. This horse is a TB but he's really easy to handle, apparently. I'm going to have a look at him in 2 days, I will update you on how he behaves and how he rides. No, my sis won't be coming because it's going to be a surprise. Yes, I know she should get to know the horse but if we do get him home, we'll have him on trial to see whether he likes my horse and my sis. So...now I need a name. He's brown (no, not bay lol) and has a medium sized snip. Oh, I'll just post a pic. http://i1168.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3646fa1d.jpg
It's not a very good quality pic but I don't have any better ones of him
. Well, I thought I should call him Harz. Harz means "tree sap" in German and you say it like: "hearts." lol. I just like it. But maybe you guys have better ideas. His actual name is Jake, but a person that my sister really doesn't like has the same name!
so yeah, he needs a new one. Any ideas???
oh and I sneakily asked my sister what she would call a horse that is black, brown, chestnut, bay, grey, palomino...etc and she said she's really bad with names an if she ever got her own horse, she would keep its old name or make me choose one.
P.S: if we do get him, he will arrive the day before Christmas without my sis knowing! She SO badly wants a horse, I can't wait to see the look on her face. If it all works out, I can post a vid of her reaction on here, because I'm going to film it secretly with my camera set up somewhere discreet.
