This is only his third day here....but boy is this horse cool!

So..in a different thread I was talking about a 16 year old Standardbred gelding called Syd that we looked at for my sister. Well, this is his third day here, his second one having been one with a massive torrent of rain. But still, he's all happy now and a real character. At first he just seemed like the regular bomb proof la-di-da horse but nah, he's more! He's a real gem, this horse. He already met Luca and they seem to go along very well. Now for the pics:

In the rain...but isn't he beautiful?

Great horse, eh?

Beautiful boy!

That last photo is great!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

Thank you!
He really is a handsome boy.
He's about 14.3 hh the previous owner said, but we're going to measure him just to make sure.
