Ace


Here's a photo of my Quarter Horse gelding, Ace, after he spent some time rolling in the mud! He'll be 3 at the end of the month. He's a very friendly, easy-going guy, which will hopefully mean that he won't give me too much trouble when I start training him for riding this spring. We rescued him as a yearling from a woman who had too many horses in too small a space and couldn't afford to feed them. He's a bit stunted from that experience and I don't know if he'll ever grow to his full potential. The boys like his smaller stature though. He's a really ruggedly built, mahogany bay with no white markings at all. I love his dishy face, little bitty ears and big doe-eyes.

Your love of horses really shows here...What does a "dishy face" mean in this context? ;-)

So good of you to rescue Ace!

Thank you for taking the responsibility of raising this horse. Dedicated people like you are a valuable resource and deserve more attention than you probably get. Thanks.

He has a slightly concave face, as opposed to a flat face. If you've ever seen an Arabian, they have really dishy faces.
