#1 here. A year ago, I finally fulfilled the dream of a lifetime and bought a horse. The idea had been brewing for a long time but the final process was very fast and suddenly, there I was. Aak! A horse is not a cat or a dog. It is something very large that one hopes will live many years, requires special housing and highly specialised schooling. I was lucky in that he was able to continue boarding where he was born, 5 minutes from Poupounette Central, and in the excellent hands of his breeders.
He was 18 months old when I bought him. Here we are together just a few days after I signed the papers:
And here we are again, about a month ago:
He is now 17 hands (1m 72cm) at the withers and still growing. To me, he is the most beautiful horse ever. Above all, I love his sweetness. One day soon, I will be able to ride him...
Happy gotcha day, Vidock. Is there a catmint equivalent for horses?ReplyDelete
We are in awe of you, #1, if you want to ride him....he's soooo huuuuuge!
