Romeo



I am scrapbooking this afternoon and was looking for pics to create with and came across these.
{They made me smile.}
This is my horse, Romeo and a little about our history together :)


I was out at my parents house a few weeks ago and was taking pictures around their property.
My mom has a lot of pretty landscaped areas and surrounding areas.
This makes it PERFECT to practice working on my (lacking) camera skills.
Well, what is prettier than horses?

This sweet guy is my horse, Romeo. His actual registered name is, "Fierce Contender" but that totally did NOT fit his personality. He is extremely affectionate, but very naughty at times...meaning, he has bucked me off my fair share of times throughout my life time.
When I used to clean his stall he would get a drink of water and wait for the perfect moment to come up and snuggle up to me.
Hey! I thought he was being cute, as he usually was, but NOPE...he drops the water down the back of my neck.
{Yeah, this happened many, many times. That horse is GOOD, I tell ya!}
I received Romeo when he was just a year old. He was so tiny that my parents simply lifted his fuzzy, long-legged, baby-body up into the trailer and took him home to me. I spent a lot of time bonding with him because I couldn't ride him until he was older.
I was crazy about him, I would wash his tail almost daily (no joke) condition it, spray in a shiny spray called, "Show Sheen" and french braid it. He was very groomed VERY nicely..lol.
I was in 4-H with Romeo and went to fair each summer. He is the one that sent me away in an ambulance after the parade. Got excited and bucked me off. That was a bad one. But, here is Romeo now 16 almost 17 years old, still spunky, but so adorable. Um, and TALL. He measures in at 16. 5 hands tall. That's really tall for a horse. He has a lot of racing blood, so he is built with really long legs. As a kid, I didn't factor in how far I'd fall from him, now when I look at him that's exactly what I think.lol!


In these photos of him, he is getting his fuzzy winter coat. In the summer, oh my...he has the most gorgeous copper-colored coat that shines in the sun. His nose is white and pink and.....{lol} we have to put sunscreen on it in the summer time or he gets burned. Ha. Poor guy.

Their halters waiting on the fence.
One last peek...................




Have a wonderful day!!
