    Default New horse! video post 12

    So I bought a new horse this weekend from COTH's own judybigredpony!

    His JC name is Dance Next to Me, barn name Lenny

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/dance+next+to+me

    He's dark brown, with a very refined dishy face. He's a super good mover and jumper (watched him free jump at judy's place). Has great feet with a digital cushion <squeals with glee> nice short cannons. I am SUPER excited about him!!!

    He is curious and interested in stuff, while remaining calm. Very confident. I'll probably give him two months off, as he's a bit immature right now, and looks like he has some more growing to do. About 16h, string tests to just under 16.2. JUST LOVE HIM.

    Oh, and I totally get why everyone is raving about dance with ravens.

    The trip home was about 8 hours and he shipped really well. I felt bad for the bugger as the drive from MD to North Shore Mass is really crappy, but he did well. Got off the trailer like "no big deal."

    Sorry no pics, I tried to upgrade to premium membership, but they only accept paypal. (sorry!!!!)

    Congrats on your new horse.

    You CAN upgrade to Premium without paypal (I do), but I think you have to mail it in.

    Thanks frugalannie! I'm looking forward to see you this summer also! YEH @ GMHA is very early this year, not sure if he will be ready, but we will certainly be at GHF summer classic and most likely the May CT.

    Thanks JBRP! Was a pleasure doing buisness with you.

    OK videos- this one I took and it kinda sucks, hard to video and move them around at the same time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZxkImuo4g0

    And this is JBRP's video of him- much better!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAXlYrv5ABY

    Judy you're gonna have a ton of fun!

    My Petey is also by Dances With Ravens and he's been a star and a half.

    Can't wait to see more pics and vids!!!

    (Fyi.... Petey saw his first "jump" on his third ride. They have fantastic brains!!!)

    So glad you got him! He is lovely. I saw him free jump just shortly after JBRP got him and was sooo tempted (but I do not need another horse right now). Knees above his eyeballs and cracked his back....he's going to be a lot of fun! I tried to get my trainer to go get him but she didn't move fast enough

    Xctrygirl- he does have a good brain, and he's much quieter than I thought he was going to be, which is nice!

    BNFE- Thanks! Was nice to see you IRL. Very pleased with him, I think he's going to be a good one.

    Judy,

    These guys are also getting attention with tb friendly h/j people. Laura Chapot has a filly and loved Petey. If you want to ever sell you have some options. Just saying.
