Mr. Darcy...

No, Mr. Darcy is not the guy that every girl dreams of. He is my mini horse! This little guy is my "best buddy", and is just a ton of fun! At times though he can be a handful, but that's why I enjoy him.
He is a (almost) 3 year old mini stallion and he stands at about 34". In the pics above he looks like a chestnut with his winter coat, but in summer when I shave him he turns into a silver bay. I bought him when he was one and boy was he a mess! His hair was all tangled and matted, his hooves were too long and he knew nothing, not even how to lead.
Right now he's just a "pet", but I am trying to train him to pull a cart, without a cart or harness. So for now I'm ground driving him, he does however know a few tricks! He will shake your hand and rear, right now I am trying to teach him how to bow and smile. My little horse is a great friend, and I love having him around.
