Yesterday, my new Peruvian was delivered ! He is one of the late
Connie Ribo's four remaining horses, BR Picaro, a 12 y.o. HNS Domingo
"Hairy" as he's being called for the short term until I can figure
out a good call name, is a sweetheart and a gentleman. A bay roan
with four socks, a huge mane and forelock, and a great temperament.
We don't know much about his trail experience but we do know that he
was shown in Texas up until 2000. The current weather keeps me from
taking him out on the trail for the moment, but I will continue the
ground work he began with his rescuer, Gina Gardner.
While he won't "replace" my wonderful Alpinista (who I lost to colic
two days after Christmas '08), my new Peruvian
gelding will bring her memory even closer. Welcome home, Hairy!
Gina Gardner, Creswell OR, has the three other geldings and is looking
for homes for them. BR Caudillo, a 10 y.o. bay, BR El Cacique, a 16
y.o. chestnut, and BR Curioso, an 8-9 y.o. chestnut. Please contact
Gina if you are looking or if you know of someone looking for a nice
riding horse. They are all VERY reasonably priced.
