Those of you who requested pics may be sorry you asked.

Today we gave Gats his first bath (from us anyway...obviously he's been washed before):


Before my son's lesson:



He is such a sweet boy! We fall more in love w/ him every day.

OMG, he is absolutely gorgeous! Your son will have so much fun jumping him! I can just picture him sailing over jumps, he has great conformation for it!

There's an old saying about white on the horse's legs.

Four white feet, try a horse
Three white feet, buy a horse
Two white feet, give him to a friend
One white foot, keep him til' the end

I notice your new horse has one white leg so I guess that means he is a keeper

That's cute; I haven't heard that before. Thanks for sharing! :)

how funny, as the version I know is very different:

one: buy him.
two: try him.
three: suspect him.
four: reject him.

obviously written by someone who didn't like chrome (or thought white feet were bad)!

all of our horses fall into the 'suspect' category.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Maybe that means they'd never be for sale because they're too awesome.
