Not going to lie, I was a little nervous after seeing what he looked like! I then got this picture from the hauler at one of their pit stops. At least I knew that with his breeding he would have a good temperament!:
Im really not sure how anyone gets a Gypsy in that condition, after all they get fat on air, but there is no doubt that he looked homeless, hungry, and down right awkward!
1.5 years later he is turning into a gorgeous boy! He is finally bulking up, has gained a bunch of muscle, and has even continued to slowly grow taller. I have listed him for sale twice.... and I have pulled his ad twice. The more rides he get under his belt the more potential he shows. I tell the kid who rides him that I am jealous of her all of the time!
What it all comes down to is that I seriously love this horse. He is the exact ride that I want. So even if I can't ride him (except for the occasional bareback ride) he is still mine and I can help make sure he gets the best chance of becoming the horse I know he can. So I am going to live by the "no regrets" statement and keep him :) I am as excited to watch him at shows as I am to ride Mystic in them. He also got signed up for his very first dressage lesson this month! Time for my cute little baby to grow up into a cute little show pony!
