The young eyes of success by Scotston The young eyes of success by Scotston
This is my special special boy

He is a few spot varnish roan Knabstrup. This photo was taken standing on the rise outside his stable, about a year after I bought him from a meat market for 50gns

He's 'ugly' to alot of people. but he certainly isnt to me. :heart:

There is a concave mark across his nose and cheekbones where his original rope halter had cut in. He also has a deep one across his poll which is a permanent scar. We had to have the halter actually cut out of his skin, and it left him with a complete mess. He has to have padded headcollars & headpieces to prevent pressure points as you can literally press your fingers into the hole it left in his neck

He also bears other ugly scar's on his body, especially a deep one around his right forleg. He was badly abused as a youngster and it has left deep scars physically as well as mentally

He was about 3 here, I've had him 10 years now (as of 2013). He's such a character, strong willed, highly intelligent and at times trying, but he is my complete world :)

He is beautiful. He has kind eyes, and lots of love to give and needs a lot of love as well. I hope you two form the trust and love needed to thrive. He reminds me of a few very white paint horses I've met. I want to totally scratch his nose and give him some treats :)

Thank you :) I've had him a wonderful 10 years now - He's in a semi retirement at the moment through no fault of his own, but he's most certainly my horse of a lifetime :hug:
