    So I'm a failure and a hypocrite.

    Last night I was cruising on Facebook and saw a photo of a horse that I first thought was the ugliest thing I'd ever seen, and almost as fast I fell in love with him. On a feed lot in Oklahoma. I... looked at his video and he was sweet and gaited... so I bought him. :whistle::eek:

    I've now contacted a hub where he will hangout till my favorite hauler can get him. :help:

    I've always told myself I would NEVER buy from a feedlot, but oh my gosh i couldn't resist! It was out of my control. :rofl: He just has the kindest eyes, and seeing his personality in the video pushed me over the edge. The guy who works there said he meets him at the gate every morning and that he's just an all around sweet guy.

    He will be getting a FULL vet workup ASAP. My plans for him are just to be a nice little trail horse and barn buddy for my other horses. Not a hard life lol. I can't wait to get him all cleaned up, I think he will be decent. :)

    Name ideas are also nice, I'm not a huge fan of his current name "Cirrus".

    Just LOOK at that nose! I've never seen such a big ole Roman nose! He's a looker.

    He looks like a "Jack" to me, or "Mellon."

    What's his height?

    He's not a big guy, 14.2 or so. :)

    Thanks Mooselady! I hope he is too, I'm a huge worry wort so once he passes a vet check I will feel a lot better. His expression really got me.

    I would call him Jupiter Windcaller, a play on Jergan Windcaller, which is a name from a video game.
    He just looks like a Jupiter to me

    Love him! What a cutie.

    Julius or Baron are names I thought of when I looked at him.
