I went to see the colt- I can no longer buy him as I found a pb Friesian gelding and my husband won't let me get both. I opted for the broke horse. However, I am wondering if I made the right choice! Time will tell. My friend Suzie is buying the colt. He is A-MAZ-ING. I fell totally in love. I am trying not to feel bitter toward my husband for not letting me buy the colt. It's a head versus heart thing!

Just am falling totally in love with the Friesians. See one, you lose your heart. Ride one, you are hooked for life.

Molly
