“It’s been almost 7 months since we adopted “Slipstream” (but we call him Jixer). He has filled out quite nicely, and is a happy healthy boy!! He’s so thick some mistake him for a QH sometimes!! (Extremely spoiled too!) This spring we are going to really get into training, as he’ll be turning 4 in April.

We’ve been taking it pretty easy, just letting him be a horse for a little, simple rides, trail rides (which he loves!!), etc. Just this past week we let him run around in the indoor, and he decided to jump a X-rail…TWICE, on his OWN!! I’m hoping this means he will enjoy jumping and I will have a great hunter on my hands! As you know this winter has been really nasty, with a lot of days that the horses didn’t get to go out-a few of those days he did act like a 3 year old!! But the majority of the time, he surprises me-he’s so calm, level headed and sweet-everyone just loves him. The very bitter nasty cold does get the worst of him though haha! We are having a great time with him, we love him to pieces. We will keep you posted on his progress in the future!” -Heather F.
