Since I sent in the story about Prince Phillip, I felt compelled to submit something in about Gallo Rojo, the TWH I bought 6 yrs. ago from Glenda and Gerald. This is a picture of me and Gallo getting ready for our local July 4th parade. If you look closely, you can see Prince Phillip tied to our trailer behind Gallo. As I mentioned before when talking about Prince Phillip, the parade begins with a fly over of F16 Fighter Jets! It is very very loud, but these horses don't flinch with the noise. Since I wrote such a long story about Prince Phillip, I will try to keep this one shorter. Gallo has a kind heart and will try to do whatever I ask of him and will go wherever I direct him. He never says no, even if he is a little unsure of something. I have trail ridden him all on many different trails in our region in MA, through all different types of terrain, through rivers, traffic, etc. often times in a group of 30-40 riders. He will lead, ride in the middle, or he will follow the group. He is energetic and a bit spirited, but is level headed at the same time. One of our favorite benefit rides begins at a sportsmans club. Well, in the morning, there is a turkey shoot going on fairly close to our horse trailers and they do fine with that. He came to me with excellent ground manners and he, as well as Prince Phillip, is a pleasure to have at our farm. I have never cared much for horses that have destructive or rude behaviors. These two horses are just nice to have around and they are friendly to visitors at the barn. Both Gallo and Prince Phillip will just hop on the trailer and truck well. They will also tie as long as you need to at the trailer (or even to a tree!) without breaking away. Also, I can put Gallo in the trailer after the winter off, and literally take him on his first ride of the season (taking it easy of course) in a strange place with a group of horses he doesn't know and he is fine! How many horses can do that?...and I have done that with Gallo more than once! He is such a loving horse too. He will often leave his feed and come stand near me quietly while I do chores. What more can I say?!
Thanks for this sweet beautiful horse!
