Ahhh!! So a while back I posted about getting a horse from argentina, remember? Well I came home mid november and he still hadn't left. Waiting for planes blah blah blah.
Well today, at 8pm, he arrived at Rocky Start Stables (where I am currently working), after leaving argentina last saturday, spending a week in quarantine, and then the long haul up from miami (with an overnight in Ocala last night).
His halter (yes it really is tied on, the buckle was weird and we always made do down in argentina. It was the one that was grabbed when he left and Katie was kind enough to tie it on, no one bothered to take it off)
Sorry, I never saw your original Thread about this horse. What can you tell us about him? Why did you import all the way from Argentina?
Have fun & a forever life with your new buddy!
Yeah, so I was working at a jumper sales barn down in Argentina. Through a weird agreement with my mother, we purchased him. He was one of the horses I was schooling, a 5yr old warmblood gelding (well just turned five) 15.3hh, jumper. He had just started showing in mid June and was eating it up. I fell in love with him for his big personality and nice gaits. He is hopefully going to be my next eventer.
His name is Classic Skyline (dur, I should have said that :P)
Thanks guys! mom will get lots and lots of hugs when I go home for new years
@Superminion I don't really write in the blog any more, I am horrible like that, I just can't keep up with it.
AND!!! I took him out this morning for a walk up the road since the ring was soaked from all the rain. He was very very excited but quite bold and forward about it. Once we started walking up the hill he quieted down and had to think about his feet since he had never so much as seen a hill, let alone had to walk up a mountain. The worst he did was hump his back and shake his head and jig a lot. So proud of him!!
