    Talking shameless brag-new stallion came home today!

    I just wanted to post where I knew some people could understand my excitement!! My new boy just came home today after over 4 months of waiting! We had to wait for our barn to be constructed, but now he is here
    He's coming 3 and is Balou du Rouet/Voltaire breeding. This is my first stallion (but not my first youngster!) so I hope to really do right by him-he's such sweetie and really wants to please

    Here he is as a 2 year old...(photo by Barbara Sikkink)Click image for larger version.

    He is lovely - he was at SilverCreek if I remember correctly and I knew he was for sale. Congratulations!!!

    Thank you all so much!! I am hoping to keep him a stallion and get him to some shows on the line and start under saddle this year. As long as he is still minding his manners, we may start breeding him next year. One day at a time...it's all a learning process at this point!

    And yes, Barbara has some nice ones over there and is the most helpful!

    Boy! With those bloodlines I hope you have high fences! He should be able to jump the moon.

    Congrats! Do you have a link to his pedigree?

    BTW, are you in OH and did you just come back from a trip to the tropics? (I was on your flight if so)
