3rd Friesian Headed to Vermont for John----One of Our BEST!!!
Thanks so much, Janna! it has been such a pleasure doing business with a TRUE horse professional. If you ever come this way, I'd love for you to visit.
Update... Janna, Chopper is amazing, I am having a lot of fun riding him. Love his trot! Can't help but think upper level dressage with him. Having lots of fun with Durk and Willy too!
Wilhelm is a giant lap dog and John is crazy about him. I am totally in love with Chopper,he is quite a talented horse! -Kirsten (trainer) in Vermont
The "boys" are doing beautifully. Chopper was immediately renamed Parsifal. Parsifal has taken to the trail-riding with the same PROFESSIONAL attitude he applies to everything he does. We created some absolutely beautiful trails on my 400 acres. It is possible to canter side-by-side in many places in the midst of mature trees. I would say that, because of climbing the hills, he actually became even MORE muscular and conditioned. He and Wilhelm became buddies immediately, often spending 45 minutes grooming each other. He is an absolutely magnificent LOVE! (You cannot have him back!!) I began riding him in October, cantering in the woods, etc., which surprises all my gals since I never rode before last June. They say he makes me look like the Man from Snowy River!! Again, he's a total PRO. Below is one shot from the first time I was on Parsifal. By the way, Durk and Wilhlem are doing very well, too. Wilhelm has an incredible disposition, and I can trust him with even the most inexperienced riders. Like most Germans, however, he really likes to eat! So, we have to make sure he gets plenty of exercise and doesn't graze all day, every day. Durk, who was always little bratty and self-absorbed, has suddenly become a real "daddy's boy." When I visited at Christmas, he would groom the back of my head while I stroked him. I think he wanted me to take him back home!
