*Sorry, I felt the need to change the title of this post. I thought it would make it easier to find the “Trooper” horse later if need be.
I figured after two years of blogging it’s high time I introduced you guys to each one of the horses here at Glenview Farms. After all, they’re one of the major reasons we are in Northern Michigan in the first place.
Plus, this will give me an excuse to do a “series” and I always wanted to do one of those! So, I begin my first entry in the series with a gelding named Trooper…
He’s the tallest horse in the barn. Standing barefoot at 19 hands high (6’4”at the withers) and weighing in at 2,160 pounds.
Retired from the Show String.
Position Held In The Hitch (Team):
What he’d say if he could talk:
“Does this stall make me look short?”
Quirky things he does:
Somehow, while eating breakfast, lunch and dinner, gets hay twirled around in his forelock better than anyone else. Also is enamored with watching me mow the grass around the barn and semi-truck parking area – every time I do it.
**Side Note: I didn’t think it had been quite two years since I started this website so I decided to go back and check. The first post was 06-01-10. Now, you all know I don’t post up everyday, so how weird is that? It’s my second anniversary today!
**Second Side Note: (I know they just keep coming! ) I may have almost missed my second anniversary but I did manage to miss my 200th post. It was the Memorial Day post a few days ago. I guess some mile stones I slow down for and some I trip right over!
