At least it isn't as bad as a foal watch, we do know the delivery date!

Sorry for the wait you guys! I've been so busy all day.

We left this morning at 6:30 and arrived at the horse corrals at 8:00. When we got to the corrals the yearlings were in a pen up front. There were only two other trailers picking up when we arrived. We went into the office and signed papers, and got the papers for the yearling I was assigned to. All I knew about him once I got the papers, was that he was a sorrel gelding with a star, strip, and snip. They didn't have any pictures of him. We walked back outside to see if we could find him based on the picture they drew of his markings. After searching for a few minutes, we found one that looked to have the right markings. Once the other trailers were loaded they went to round him up. He was taken back to the squeeze chutes to put the halter on him and then they ran him into our trailer. It was really an amazing experience!

He is over two years old, not what I expected. He is also very small, maybe 14 hands, but not much over that. His height is the only thing I'm a little disappointed with, other than that he's perfect! Within a few hours of bringing him home I was able to pet his face. Only one kick so far, and no biting or striking. I think that's pretty good. He seems to be kind and smart. He also loves hay, and will come up to you after thinking about it. He is very spooky, but I didn't expect him not to be. I have a lot of work to do, but for right now I am exhausted.

Any name ideas? I was thinking about Rüger? (Roo-ger) I'd love some name suggestions! Oh and oobiedoo, you were almost exactly correct about his markings!! I will post some photos of him now, I hope you guys like them!

He's a great looking little horse. Funny, I almost said a star and a snip :) I'll think on names, but I usually like silly names :) or maybe connected to the month or state, of course April would be a girl name Lol.
