    Default Love this guy

    I don't know why, because he doesn't have the traditional eventing, slim, athletic build but I just love him.

    Wow...I LOVE him! 96 starts! I love his look. Very kind eye. If he is still sound after that history, I don't know what could stop him!

    I like him too. Remember that most of the horses shown on these websites are babies or teenagers and this boy is mature.

    I always like to compare these to John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever versus John Travolta now.

    Wow wouldn't he just think that he died and went to heaven to get a 'home' and a person! I see a heart horse here.

    Is it just the picture or are his front feet realy that mismatched?

    Who is NOT looking, just enjoy the threads. I also prefer "window shop" mares under 16H .

    LOVE him. Gorgeous creature. And if he's sound after 95+ starts on those feet, mismatched or not... who cares?

    Definitely an old soul, and a beautiful one to boot!

    I might as well add that his sireline is Notebook -> Well Decorated -> Raja Baba.

    I just think he's adorable.

    I know. I want him so bad but just can't. If my mare doesn't respond to her new treatment then I will definetly be looking, but it's too soon to tell.
