I'm sure many of you remember Star Colony, my fall '12 CANTER acquisition.
He made his eventing debut last week at Running Start, in the step-over-sticks division. Speaking of sticks, Mick has the word's longest legs and often reminds us of a praying mantis or a spider. But he's very elegant and powerful, so we have high hopes for his future.
Aw, I'm the CANTER volunteer who took and posted his listing, and I love seeing this!! Thanks for the update (and keep 'em coming!)
Well, thank you for presenting him in such an eye-catching way.
One funny thing -- the PPE vet told us he was 'about 15.1hh' so we bought him thinking we got another small one, and we like small ones. (The CANTER write-up said '16hh' but that could mean anything.) But Mick is at least 16.2hh, probably taller.
He's a very sweet-natured, willing horse, always in a good mood. I think I saw him put his ears back once, when he was flanked by two really annoying horses. That's about as negative as he gets.
