||Eight years old|
is Sun of a Gun's Bullet, also known as Sunny. Sunny is my eight-year-old
Paint gelding boy. He's 16.2 hands high and could be considered a rescue. I
got him three years ago from a guy who used him as a stud for four years. He had
no shots, hadn't had his hooves done in who knows who long, no Coggins (the
Coggins test checks for Equine Infectious Anemia antibodies in the horse's
blood), was underweight, and was barely broke.
I originally got him to be a project and for him to be my go-to horse once I
retire my mare. After three years and quite a few falls later, not to mention the
setbacks from injuries, the hours of training, and thoughts of giving up on
him, he's close to being able to take over for my mare. This year we're going
to start going to some fun shows, judged trail rides, and in three weeks he'll be
going on his first camping trip.
Sunny will follow me without a halter or lead, rides bareback in just a
halter, and gives kisses on command. He crosses almost anything without
question except for white things, which he's still scared of. Sunny has
basically turned into a gentle giant with time, tender loving care, and quite
a bit of patience.
