I don't buy a lot of horses, so new additions tend to be greeted with a lot of fanfare. Typically, this includes a dress up session and photo shoot, followed by the inevitable blog post. Every now and then, however, a new horse slips in without the usual ballyhoo. Today's post features two of those sneaky horses.
The first is Saba. He was the judge's model at last May's Springamathing live show.I don't usually care for the Stone Arabian, but the color on this model is outstanding. He's so lovely (and glossy!) that I just can't bring myself to sell him.
The other almost new addition also came from a Stone show. I didn't attend the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous live show in September, but thanks to Teresa, two of my horses did. One of those, my Mosaic, was named Overall Champion in the Collectability Division. This was his prize.
I was a little underwhelmed when I saw this guy in pictures. Fortunately, he's much prettier in person. I especially like his subtle dapples.
Like Saba, this was supposed to be a sale horse. Like Saba, I just can't seem to let him go!
Since it looks as if he's going to be a keeper, I suppose I should name him. Any suggestions?
