    Runestone, or Rune

    My mum's new 2016 Gelding. I will be helping her with Rune, so I thought it was only fair to introduce him.

    His dam was a Standardbred
    Sire Quarter Horse allegedly.

    He's a pretty smart and sensitive guy, and I am looking forward to watching him grow up and work with him.

    The photos are when he first came home, he's on free choice hay and pasture and has been dewormed.

    The last photo was about a week ago with our 21 year old 14.3hh QH mare.

    Whoa. Sooty Buckskin giraffe, that horse. I hope your Mom is long in the upper body so she can see over his head while riding. :LOL:

    He's just taking in his new home, that's all. In the pic where he's lounging he doesn't look like he would be any problem to see over.

    I do not usually like buckskins (or any color other than bay) but he is adorable. Looking forward to some updates! He looks pretty balanced.I bet he is a nice mover...I'll be he's a show off with a fun personality too.

    The way he stands, I was thinking Saddlebred, not standie. :D
    He is a pretty Little dude. I love the colour!
    Hope you keep us updated on him.

    I definitely can't wait for him to grow up either and share with you guys. It takes a looooot to have him move faster than a walk.

    mum gave him his name due to his colour and numerous marks and scars.
