Meet Roeluf. He is a 10 year old Fresian Gelding owned by my dear friends and neighbors Tim and Ann. Years ago they travelled to Holland to find a young Fresian. After days of searching, they found Roeluf. Ann has spent the past 7 years training Roeluf in Dressage and Driving. He often competes in Driving events and usually wins. He is enormous and he is beautiful. And to top it all off, he is sweet natured and oh so willing to do what he is asked to do.
His beautiful black tail hangs full and soft to the ground and his mane (although braided in this picture) hangs to his knees. He is a magnificent horse. We had the pleasure of taking carriage rides today in Ann's marathon carriage. Roeluf pulled us over the trails through our woods. What a gorgeous day and a gorgeous horse!!
