So I have been holding off sharing as it's been a bit complicated, but he should be home soon now :D

He's 2yo Welsh D x Arab/saddlebred, he's still at the breeders and she didn't register him when born (I know 😬) so since I viewed him at the beginning of July I have been 118430927_10158670055422246_1520448234908818067_n.jpg118403677_10158670055507246_4004454513683484102_n.jpg118450796_10158670055527246_4534521272915154372_n.jpgwaiting on his paperwork coming back from WPCS, who are still working from home and aren't doing fast tracks at the moment, but it should be back this week :D If so, we will pick him up on Sunday.

He was quite nervy of my friend and I but chilled with the breeder and her groom, so I think it's just inexperience, once I found his scratchy spot he kept coming back to me for more 😋 He was very well behaved even when asked to do things he wasn't entirely comfortable with and he was out with 2 mares and just about fell over himself to get out of their way when they flicked and ear at him so I am very hopeful he will settle in with Jess and the boys easily.

I know mum and dads registered names, but not what he is registered as and I don't like her pet name for him, so he is currently just 'the baby' but I have a list of potential pet names for him but am waiting until he's home to settle on one :)

Oh he looks lovely, fingers crossed he’s with you at the weekend, he’s very striking isn’t he. No wonder you’ve been quiet here, keeping ‘baby’ under wraps 😉
Can’t wait to hear all about him once he’s home 😁

It’s mostly because I got into a good book series 😁 I haven’t even turned on the tv in a month, I get very engrossed once I get into a book 🤣 I tried to make the most of my last few weeks before I went back to work a month ago and spent a lot of time camping too 🏕

So lovely! I do love a dun - one doesn't see many. Lucky lucky you! (And him!)

He looks a strong handsome chap. Is he buckskin? I'll be so interested to find out how he moves - always wondered which type of action 'wins' when Section D meets Arab 😀
