And "Apollo" is his name!

He IS a once in a lifetime horse - no doubt! "Apollo" is our 4 year old black and white Spotted Draft gelding that we have just brought into our program.
Incredible is really not a strong enough word to describe him. He literally took my breath away when I laid my eyes on him for the first time.
He has such an incredibly kind eye, curious nature and looks that no one can deny.

I am blessed to work with many gorgeous, smart and wonderful equines, but I do believe that Apollo has out done them all and I have only just met him!

I don't have any great pics of him yet, as I was so taken by him that I had not thought to take any pics for the website (maybe that is my subconscience keeping me from letting someone buy him from us!). I did take a few pics of him in the trailer just an hour ago at our last stop, though.

Of course, you can't get a real look at the incredible color, build and stance of this guy, but I think you can get an idea.

He has a beautiful face and I just couldn't wait to show him off.

IF I go through with selling this guy after he finishes his under saddle training (he already drives single & double) someone will be getting an incredible equine partner. He is a "once in a lifetime" horse and it is yet to be seen if I am willing to let this one reside in someone else's barn ;)
