    Thanks for all the compliments! He's my first Arab, and I'm absolutely in love with him. And I think he is with me, too, but he doesn't like to admit it haha.

    Here's a picture from when he was younger. This is the picture that was posted on the website before I got him. Honestly, I completely skipped over him because of this picture. The last thing I wanted was a crazy long-necked halter horse! But, he's so much more than that, and I'm glad I gave him a second chance and actually went and looked at him <3

    Haha funny you should say "if he enjoys it" - honestly, he's the most willing horse I've ever had. No, he's not going to go blind into something, but if he trusts you and you give him a moment to wrap his head around what's going on, then he goes for it. I've experimented with some low jumps before (not doing that again until I have a trainer) and he's willing to hop on over them. His willingness to give everything a good try and trust that you are going to take care of him is one of my favorite things about this horse :) So I think he'd do the same for jumping if I asked him to and showed him what I expected.

    He's quite the looker without the winter woolies. I did say ouch when I saw the picture below him. Hopefully it was just a bad moment, but I doubt it is.

    Yeah... That horse was sold the same week I got my boy though, so he's had a new rider for almost a year now
