Cool Hello from Germany!

And again a newbie :)

My name is Katharina, I'm 23 years old and live in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany. I'm working in the office of a machine building company and studying animal physical theraphy for horses and dogs at the weekends.
With the age of five I was infected with the horse-love virus Nine years ago I found my once-in-a-lifetime horse, a six years old thouroughbred-hannoverian-gelding called "Pünktchen". I trained him in eventing and we started CIC* together :) He's a very friendly and ambitiously horse and gives always more than 100% to please. Tomorrow is his 15th birthday - I enjoy every day with him :)

So.. I don't know what else I can tell you... Any questions?

Pls kindly excuse my english - it's not perfect, but I'm trying :)

Best regards,
Katharina :)

Thanks for your friendly welcome

He is about 16.1 hands (if my unit converter works right) and he is chestnut (or is it sorrel? I dont't really know the difference between the two colours)

Here are some pictures:

Welcome to the forum!! Your horse is gorgeous! Chestnut and sorrel are genetically the same.

Being horseless is the pits!!

Thank you all very much for the friendly welcome

Taffy Clayton, from Münster (where I live) to Ulm it's about 600 km - far away for german circumstances. :)

Deserthorsewoman, you speak quite good german :) Did you live in Germany?
Thanks for your offer - I think I will need it
