This is my 3 year old Arabian Gelding Huckleberry. He was standing inside a open barn when I took this. I downloaded a animal sound application for my iphone and it works great to get my horses to look at me and pose. :P

WOW I was so hoping this would ribbon but really did not think I would get a Blue. What a wonderful week this has been :D
Thanks so much everyone for all your wonderful comments votes and congrats. I am so pleased with this win. It really was a fun week it will be hard to top.

What a gorgeous Arabian, I have an Arab mare that was bought at one of our local auctions, Savannah was a pretty rosie grey but has since greyed out to a fleabitten grey, she currently has a foal at her side by a friends Spotted draft, he has the benefit of the large bones of the draft but the refinement of the Arab.
