In Honor of PJ's Memory
The New Adoptee
PJ's Folly can never be replaced, but in honor of his life, I have adopted a youngster who needed a home.
Romantic Chance is a three year old American Warmblood who had been under the care of Crossed Saber Stables for several months now. Taking a chance on Chance, I adopted him.
I had been told he was 16h, but when he arrived, he measured at only 15.1, so he is, in comparison to Toby and Tucker who stand at 16.1 and 16.3 respectively, quite a little fellow. Still he is only 3 which leaves a year or so for growing up and definitely time for filling out.
On the plus side, he is straight legged, and not a bad little mover. If he has a good solid temperament, I hope, at the very least, he will become a good general riding horse and a quiet hack on the trail. At the most, he might make a nifty little dressage mount.
Only time will tell.
