Dropped the pup off nice and early this morning for her MRI. She's so darn cute. And for the record, this vet facility is TOP NOTCH. Some small animal vet clinics just give me the heebie-jeebies, but this place is clean, doesn't smell like terrified animal (read: Spit and cat piss) and the whole experience is pro from start to finish... So I'm feeling about as I can when there's a snub nosed doggy under anesthesia....
Clearly needing a distraction, my shopping perusal continues. Here's another guy I'm liking and might go see in the next few weeks He's just over the boarder in Canada.. He seems to be a little more over his back than the mare I like - plus he's only 4. (also he seems to like jumping... always a bonus)
I LOVE this gelding! He is going so nicely for a 4 year old. Lots of jump to his canter. Seems quiet and well behaved. :)ReplyDelete
He seems a lot more interested in jumping than than with the flat work! What a cutie!ReplyDelete
He's beautiful! I love his forward energy -ReplyDelete
You're tall, so maybe you like really big geldings. All I can say is, the more I've been around them, the more I dislike them. I have a thing for medium sized mares. (Although I completely understand if you're a little over the mare thing.)ReplyDelete
Frankly, I have a thing for compact sport ponies, but that hasn't worked out great for me since ohhhhh... the 7th grade. :)ReplyDelete
I've ridden some thuggy 15.2 horses, and some very dainty 17.2's. I like horses that can package themselves up nicely, but my 38" inseam does appreciate something to take a bit of it up so I'm not constantly kicking the poor animal in it's knees.
Aww I can't watch videos right now, so I'll be back to look at him later. Good luck with the MRI. Please let us know when you know something. Keeping my fingers crossed it's good news.ReplyDelete
He's cute! The only thing I would worry about is that he's four and they are jumping him already (he's a very cute jumper!). If I were thinking of buying him I'd ask when they started riding, when they started jumping and how much jumping they've done with him. I may be overly cautious though. I just know that the growth plate in the spine don't harden until much later than the legs . . . let us know what you decide to do!ReplyDelete
