I haven't posted for a while about my boy, Rouletto. Back in October, I purchased a new horse after I found out that my 2nd level gelding needed a lesser workload and wouldn't be able to continue showing at the level that I wanted.
Anyways, (with some hand holding by a few COTH members) I settled on a 2 year year old gelding by Routinier out of a Lancaster mare. I named him Rouletto, and he has been such a joy to work with, and by far the nicest young horse I've had, and all of COTH was right when they let me know that Routinier threw very nice tempered youngsters. He's 2.5 years old now, just under 16.1hh. He's going in to get started around July/August of this year. In the mean time, we are getting to know each other and playing around with polos, bridles, scary stuff and ground manners
