Well my first and probaly last is my Canadain stallion Figaro. He just turned thirteen last month.
When I first was looking for a horse was 16. I was conflicted due to my back and hip problems. I looked into many gaited breeds but they were small but mighty. But I wanted something bigger. That and the prices at the time were out of my league.
Most of all I wanted to persue classical dressage and trick train but I wanted to be able to do anything endurance etc.. Well after must research I decided on a canadian. They reminded me so much of an old type morgan I used to ride.
So I got in touch with a broker and he gave me a list of horses. But when Figaro poped up so me thing screamed at me to get him.
From just a picture I bought him.
Our first meeting we clicked he responded to me. But it just felt right. I have ridden and worked with many horses but this was diffrent.
But mind you he was quite the handful. He never tired to hrut me but we did have our moments. To not over exageratre he was a bit fo teh black stallion/spirit. He is a one person horse and has the intelligance os sprit. Which at time was intimadating especailly when he is 1400lb.
He was five years old and you could barly lead him from point a to b. He was not mean but he would try to intimadate you. Many people told me to put him down, but more experianced people loved him. I guess they say the diamond in the rough.
Either way he has bloomed into a fantastic horse many people have grown to love and admire. We play constantly like alec witht the black on the beach. He was never taught we just did it. He is smooth as a cadilac. HE has actually improved my hip and back and he would go through fire for me. He also loves classical and does tricks that we worked on together adn have done endurnace and will be going to do some demostartions this year. Also a movie wrangler liked him and came out to see him and loved him. So you may see him in some up and coming movies or commercails.
Either way that is the story of Figaro. My pride and joy Attachment 7715 Attachment 7716
