1/3/2014 update: This is a well bred, handsome, tall, solid black gelding who moves nicely and has an uncomplicated, pleasant demeanor. A very agreeable and maleable prospect. An interesting aside, which lends insight into this fellow's mind, he was mistakenly turned out on our far back pasture, with the young unstarted horses not too long after returung from training...likely 9/29/13 or shortly thereafter. Due to weather and other factors, he was not retrieved until a few weeks ago. We were certain that a young horse having only recently been started, would require some sort of restart. We kept him handy until the fellow who starts our colts was in town and had him get on him the first time....it was a nonevent...he got off in 5 minutes and our riders could have just been riding him all along...you have to love a horse like that! Since then he has been ridden consistantly, likely 2 times per week and has been out alone, in company, with traffic, dogs and up to visit the kennel. He is a perfect match to his 1/2 sister Giaco's Monique and together they would make an elegant pair for a couple.

9/29/13 update: Making excellent progress. Thrilled with this fellow and his potential. Not doing a lot other than trail riding and occasional schooling in the arena or in an open field...he is just coming three, but coming along beautifully!!
8/17/13 update: Back from training. Doing GREAT. An athletic fellow, going nicely undersaddle in the arena and hacking out, frames up nicely. After the trainer rode him w,t,c in the arena, I had 3 of my high school riders ride him w,t,c both directions and he was really good. Nice to see a horse with 46days training under saddle going consecutively for 4 different riders each with a different riding style. Nice start on a super quality prospect!!
ALSO.... we have several half and one full sibling here, Giaco's Monique, Giaco's Loco,,,and others
7/9/13 update: Doing very well in training, due back in appr 3 weeks.
6/23/12 update: Headed out for 30 days training on Wednesday!! Cant wait to get this fellow back!!
11/27/12 update: Magic is here in Virginia. He is grogeous and a gorgeous mover. Nice solidly built, black Hanoverian cross gelding..
