Toad Comes to Visit

A friend’s horse is visiting here for a couple of weeks. I’ll have more pictures to share eventually.

Toad is a 27 year old registered Standardbred gelding that my friend Chelsea got when he was abandoned at a boarding facility. He’s a total love so far. I have heard maybe one squeal (from Buena) since he arrived this afternoon. He truly is a doll. And he finally decided he needed to move faster than an ambling walk tonight when Buena went racing around him. She’s missed having a buddy. This next 2 weeks will be good for her. They are grazing within feet of each other in a freshly accessible patch of grass and clover.

That's a cute photo with their heads together. Can you tell us a little bit about him?

I updated my posting with a new picture and a little blurb about him.

It is nice Buena is enjoying her company. I love the picture of them together.

I've always wanted to learn more about Standardbreds. There is one down the road from my sister's place. He is dark dark bay, almost black, and so pretty. I want to do a post about him someday.
