He’s all settled into his new home.

Likes: Sugar cubes, trotting, face rubs, and the little brown QH gelding who shares his paddock.

Dislikes: Long, bumpy trailer rides, the pigs that live kiddy-corner to his paddock {“What are those stinky things?”}, being told to stand still when he would rather go check out what’s in that bucket because maybe it’s food…

    SO exciting, Tonia! What a cutie he is! Congratulations!

    Is he big enough that an old person like me can ride him when I visit you someday? 😉

  9. Tonia says:

    Absolutely! You’re such a skinny-mini anyway! :)

  10. […] I want to live as low-impact as possible but at the same time my life pretty much revolves around horses. I don’t write about it very often on here, but I teach riding lessons at a stable down the […]
