Lookie what I found!
This is Theo circa 2009 when he was just getting started as a trail horse. He's all of five years old. Look at all of that mane! Look at the Western tack! Look at that complete lack of a neck!
And he is most definitely bay. I have no idea why the vet listed him as black on his Coggins. I got a note from the secretary about the discrepencies in my entry. A bay horse named Expect the Unexpected with a Coggins for a horse named Theo that's black. Oh, and the show horse is an American Warmblood but the Coggins is for a Perch X. Might need to get that test redone or its going to be a loooooooong show season.
Poor papi, making the leap from backyard pony to super show star is hard.
