Squeaks

Someone close the potato chip bag!!

Recommended Posts

So I got myself in trouble perusing Facebook. This gorgeous registered 1 1/2 year old dun colt crossed my feed this morning and I playfully asked hubby if I could have a "mini for Easter." He kind of smirked and told me to send him the listing. Thought he was cute and told me to find some details that were left out of the ad.

 

I had eventually put my adult game on and passed due to finances needing to be used toward shots and teeth next month. Hubby said he understood, but would be willing to make the drive to see him this evening.

 

So, we made the trip. After salivating over his color and conformation I focused on his temperament. He was mildly mouthy, but not horrid. He was unflappable and a good sport for everything that was offered.

 

Generally hubby and I talk before I make a decision, but he disagreed to going off to talk and said he "saw nothing wrong with him" so I took that as my green light

 

 

Come to find out he and my Mom had decided on this lil guy being an early birthday gift. He's 38" which I was wanting to get into the slightly larger minis/ponies.

 

Can't wait to pick him up Wednesday and share better quality pictures with you all. That being said... Someone take this potato chip bag!!

 

Excuse any typos as I write this from my phone :)

He is handsome and a really lovely color. Does he drive?

Chip is a cute actually!! His name is Snickerdoodle, going to have to think of something else though ;)!

 

Not broke to drive, yet. The girl bought him as soon as he hit the ground, but decided to focus on her Hunter horses so she reluctantly chose to list him this am.

Thanks, everyone... I'm very excited to get him home. Obviously I have some moving around a couple calls to make to the vet, but very anxious to start working with the 'lil guy!

 

Pictures will probably come Thursday as I'll be running all day Wednesday between Charlottesville to Hartwood to Emporia back to Hartwood. Laaawng day.
