His name is Blue.
But he’s white.
He’s handsome. Weighs 1,100 lbs. Very photogenic. Spoiled rotten and a camera-hog.
But he’s my spoiled rotten, handsome, 1,100-pound, photogenic, camera hog.
Husband hates when I feed Blue the apple-flavored horse treats my Mother sends throughout the year for her “grand-horse”, but I ignore the rants. What he doesn’t know about the daily routine Blue and I share won’t hurt him. hahahaha!!!!!!
Many of you have already asked about Blue’s name, here’s the story:
Husband has known this horse since he was a colt born at a friend’s place in East Texas. Husband got started in team-roping because of this guy. Anyway, when Blue was born, he was dark gray. When the horse would perspire or get wet, he looked dark blue. So, Original Owner named this horse Blue. Good idea!
Blue has a really fancy ~ and official ~ AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) name on his papers but I don’t remember what it is. And, I’m too lazy to go dig around Husband’s stuff to find out. Besides, Blue wouldn’t answer to that silly name anyway!
As Blue got older, his hair “bleached” in the sun. Blue has black skin and white hair with lots of red freckles. Genetics are a funny thing, aren’t they?! When Husband purchased this horse from Original Owner and transferred ownership on Blue’s AQHA registration, we had to re-submit paperwork from the vet’s office with past and current pictures of Blue’s brand (markings) to confirm this was the same horse.
I’m serious when I say this horse likes the spotlight. He LOVES having his picture made!!!!!!
So, there you have it. The horse in our pasture likes to be a show-off. He does it quite well.
Last tid-bit on Blue: besides enjoying apple-flavored treats, he LOVES Kellogg’s Frosted Strawberry Pop Tarts. He’ll eat the Frosted Brown Sugar and Cinnamon ones, but strawberry is his favorite.
