Daughter's birthday present....

Finally have been sensible and bought her a proper Irish gypsy cob!





These pics are from the advert as he only arrived here today and it has not stopped raining since.

What is more incredible to me is that the farmer he was bought from has an absolute gold mine of seriously fabulous Irish sport horses. I have never seen a collection like he has - a perfectly natural eye taught over generations. A joy to visit.


And yes I am going back ....just for a visit

I bet she is thrilled!  What a handsome horse.

This is me being sensible - normally I collect totally unsuitable livestock

I love docile coloureds

Update.

Docile coloured cob has fallen for a 16.2 four year old warmblood. Has scaled gates and fences for love.

Have spent the morning mending fences and herding errant foals back to safety.

If you have much fun with yours as i have with scooby he will be worth his weight in gold.
Scooby,s lastest bit of news is that last friday it was a friends little girls 9th birthday, so scooby took her to school in the trap it was wonderful all the parents, children and teachers smiling. Some of them even the adults had never seen a pony in harness before.
So my black and white hairy yak that came from the gyspies is now a superstar to me who will never leave me.
So you have many years to look foreward to and you will get rewarded 10 times over.

Ah bless him!  

Lovely beast though - and it sounds like you should start writing his antics down!
