I am looking at a horse tomorrow night. Astronomic.
Astronomic is a 2yo WB/TB gelding. Will mature 17-17.1hh. Big, expressive mover with rhythmical paces. He has been knowledgeably broken in and schooled. Very quiet, trainable and affectionate temperament. Great to take out. Scored 68% in his first Prep test. Would suit a rider that is looking for a very quiet, straight forward horse that is ready to embark on his career. Currently in light work.

He is local to me which is handy. He is a Cleveland Bay cross, I have met his dad, Impeccable Marksman, and fell in love with him when I met him -My main concerns so far are his age and his movement is huge! I don't know if I will be able to ride it and I really don't want to look a fool in front of the owner. I have warned them though and will discuss my concerns when I get there.
Sam is doing well. One leg swells up a little at night but I think that is from standing around. It goes down during the day when he is out grazing. I gave him a lunge today and it doesn't seem to be bothering him at all.
