Well, he finally arrived from Illinois and I couldn't be more thrilled. He came off the trailer after a 10 hour plus ride and was really well behaved. Not as calm and steady as Oberon was a few weeks back, but for a 3-1/2 year old, I'd say he did quite well.
His registered name is Falcon. His previous owner called him Rudy (Rudolph). I am toying with the idea of calling him Valentino (Rudolph Valentino). But I also really like the name Sebastian. It is another Shakespeare character (Twelfth Night) and it means revered, majestic.
He is 15.3 now and has big feet... Friesian feet I guess. He has a nice trot - a bit high stepping and he seemed to float over the ground. I didn't see him canter... I think the grass was much too inviting.
Tonight Oberon is in the front pasture next to him. These seldom get used and tomorrow they will both be back with the other horses. I will post how that goes later this week. Below is an out of focus shot, but it gives a bit of a view at his face - it looks more Friesian than Quarter Horse I think.
