I'm so excited, I just had to share! Picked him up this weekend from a fellow COTHer who contacted me because she didn't have the time or room to keep him going. It was a whirlwind weekend going to pick him up. We spent many (too many!) hours in the truck but it was totally worth it! I am totally in love with him!
After much debate about his name, my boyfriend renamed him "Ace". Here he is!

^Meeting Chip for the first time!

I can't wait for the farrier to come out so I can hop on him! Of course he had to throw a shoe before I got a chance to! :lol:

Very attractive! How old?

What are your plans for him? What has he done?

He's about to be 5. He was started last year and was WTC/starting to jump this past summer but has not been in work all winter while previous owner was in Florida.

I plan to get him going again, put a bit more training in him, and let him tell me what he'd like to do! I'm a hunter at heart but if he wants to be a jumper or eventer that's not a problem either. :)

What a cutie, I love his markings!

Mar. 22, 2011, 12:07 PM
Incredibly cute! Seems to have settled in quickly! Congrats

Mar. 22, 2011, 12:11 PM
He's lovely! Next time you have a friend with a horse like that and you have no room, let ME know! :-)

Mar. 22, 2011, 12:11 PM
Ohhh I like the looks of him! Congrats :)

Thanks everyone! I cannot wait to hop on him! Farrier is coming on Thursday but I just got a text from my sister begging me to dog sit this weekend so my first ride will have to wait until Sunday. The wait is killing me!

Mar. 22, 2011, 09:46 PM
I have tail envy too! He is really handsome. :)
I'm sure you will enjoy him.

Rode him today! Farrier came earlier than I thought he would so I got to hop on him. :D He was awesome! Can't wait until he's fit again and I can do more with him. Tonight we just walked and trotted. Here's a picture:

Love him!! What is his pedigree? His markings are similar to my mare which makes me love him even more!

older pic of her but best I could find to show her markings:
