After leasing Scotti for more than 6 months- we finally bought him! He's an 8 year old Percheron/TB cross. I've been riding my whole life and I've never had the chance to own a horse. My husband really wanted me to have him though :D I'm so lucky!

What a handsome boy! Just curious though, where's the chinstrap on his halter?

haha it's there... I bought that halter for him and it's too small! It's a large and was supposed to fit for his weight... guess he has a big head!!! I got him a new one that's for draft horses.

Ohhh, I feel your pain! We have a horse that has the same problems. All of his bridles have to come from draft horse places and his halters are huge! Good luck with him though!

Congrats! He is beautiful and you sure do look happy. I agree with MyBoyPuck - your husband is going to miss you.

Good luck on the headstall. My husband's draft cross ended up having a local tack store make his halter so that a few things could be adjusted to fit him because draft was too big and large was too small. For a riding bridle we use a WB with a few adjustments and it works.

LoL Yea- if he had a normal job, I'm sure he would! But he's a Marine and when he's home he works really long days... he's gone a lot for training and then the dreaded deployment :-/ So, my hope is that Scotti will help me through everything when my husband is gone!

Ahh! I've been looking in all the wrong places for a good man. I never considered the military guys. I was just looking for a guy who golfed a lot! Scotti will definitely get you through the apart time. Now I'm really glad you got a horse!
