He's very pretty! What breed is he? Draft of some sort... How old is he? Anyway, enough questions, he's quite stunning! Plus I like bays! :D

He's fab Stephen. I'd attach a pic of Isa, but the site always tells me the file is too big!

Is he a clydie cross? They are proving to be very popular clydie crosses...most of the older riders in my pony club ride clydie crosses...they make a lovely mix with thouroughbreds. Congrats on catching him....patience always pays off in the end!!:p

He's very clean if you've not been able to catch him for a while!! I agree he's absolutely gorgeous. Is that the plantation behind him Steve?

We wondered about what type he was, originally we thought he was Irish draught, but as he grew older his whole body bulked out. We now have a toss up between Shire cross or Clydesdale cross. But we arent to sure which one. On some days he looks like a Shire and on others he looks more Clydesdale, We would like to know, but we know very little of his past.
As for how clean he looks, the other side is mucky, he would only let me brush one side. As for the age, he is rising seven. Really pleased with him tonight, as he came back into the pen (made out of that scarey electric fence tape) and had his nuts. Hopefully we are on a roll again and he wont sit on the electric fence again when it is on!

Hi steve he is lovely, he looks just like a riding school horse I used to look after(a long time ago) called monty.He was a clydesdale x cob but didnt have that much feather he was a real softy,he used to have lots of tricks including letting himself out of the stable then if you saw him and shouted he used to trot back in and shut the door and try and pretend youd imagined it all!He also used to grow a brilliant moustache in the winter!

congratulations on getting a collar on him, i know you have posted threads about your problems with catching, long may you be able to continue on the right road with him, he is so good looking no wonder he does want to be caught, some men are afraid of marriage, your horse has the same thoughts eh :D

Congrats on the headcollar!!!!!

He is absolutely gorgeous, a really handsome fellow.
My nag is a Clydesdale x ? probably TB. She has long silky feathers to die for , which are Clydesdale, plus the lovely face with the blaze and kind eye.Size wise, she is small 15.2hh., but is quite long in the body. Has a floaty trot, but not enough lift for a Welsh. Fascinating isn't it ? L

Since that photo last year he has been through another phase of not being caught, but we are once again out the other side and can get him in a couple of minutes.
He is a beautiful boy isn't he, he is very gentle as well, although a bit nervous (that is what starts the catching problem off as he goes through phases of being headshy and frightened of ropes....) at the moment he has a headcollar on in the field and we catch him with a dog lead hidden up our sleeve - sounds mad but it works - he can't see the rope so he is not frightened of it! We use Rupert (my NF) as a Guinea Pig to show him what we are going to do on him (e.g. putting on a rug etc), when he has seen that it doesn't hurt Rupert he is fine.
