How crazy that you tracked that down!
It's amazing all the information we have access to online these days.
I hope they get back to you with more info!
It is SO crazy that I tracked that down!
I have occasionally done other searches for him [mostly trying to see if I could find photos of him from one of the gymkhana's he supposedly took part in - the gymkhanas I now know do not exist. haha] but nothing ever showed up.
This time, I googled "Fabio Oregon Quarab" and somehow the "Sold Horses" Auction Horses webpage was one of the top results - it was a hit on the word "quarab". That sort of thing is really interesting to me, so I ended up just looking through the horses for fun.
I looked through the 2013 page for fun, then continued on to the 2012 page...and bam! There was Fabio's face staring back at me!
Totally unexpected. And great.
It explains SO much about him, and helps remind m to be sensitive with him Not that I wasn't sensitive to him before, but I kind of assumed he had more training based on the old-story-lie.
This truth explains his lack of knowledge and, potentially, some of his aversion to moving out - a little old man on a trail ride might not have cantered much or asked him to really move out so it makes perfect sense why Fabs is so "what are you DOING, human?!!" when I ask him to move out. haha
Part of his "unwillingness" is definitely the PSSM, but the remainder may be solid inexperience - vs "just being a jerk" like I kind of assumed.
