About: Bamber BAMBER is German, meaning "Short & Fat." When pronounced properly it sounds like "Baumbair."
I bought Bamber in August 2011 as a training project from a woman selling him off of Craigslist. As opposed to the other horses I looked at, there was something about this little guy that I fell in love with. Much smaller than what I usually prefer, I was astounded to find how I found myself drawn to this shy gelding.
He is showing a lot of promise as my gaming horse, and may cross train him with cattle work (team penning/roping?) for fun. He will also trail ride. He has the right mind to be all-around.
Activities: He's the object of all attention and should be cooed over at all times, he says.
Favorite Food: Apples or apple-flavored goodies
