Conan was born April 27th, 1994. He stands at 15.5 hands tall. He is a bay Arabian gelding with a star and snip as his only color markings. His coat has golden highlights on the edges and if clean you can even see his dorsal stripe.Design Features/Flaws:
Conan is a very gentle and loving horse. He's always interested in what his human companions are up to and is always happy to offer a hug or except a treat. He quietly accepts being loaded, clipped, tacked, and bathed. He especially loves to be scratched after a long ride.Bill of Materials:
Conan's gentle disposition clouds the spirited horse that hides inside. His trot is extremely smooth, and his canter is to die for. His true love though is to gallop which he will happily do head arched and tail held high for several miles before even considering to slow down. He can currently jump up to two feet but easliy clears the height with air to spare. He'll cross water and go over all types of bridges. He loves to play on the trails especially with hills and is road safe as long as there aren't any combines, dump trucks, or semi's trying to pass which in the urban sprawl of wisconsin doesn't happen too often. They're REALLY big and scary, but we're working on that!
Remember he's only five! Something all of us forget on a regular basis. His mannerisms and disposition cause everyone to forget he's the youngest in the herd by at least nine years. His sweet and patient personality causes almost everyone to fall in love with him immediately including some non-horse lovers. Just don't wear suede around him. He likes to lick it! (who doesn't?)

My family is also very active in the education and practice of proper care for horses from regular shots & worming to hoof & dental care.
