Hi Guys, I’m Watmo or Watimo as my crazy owner Justin calls me.
Justin was in the Jindy Butcher Shop one day, some years back when Mick Flanagan had bought me for going bush and Brumby Running. Apparently I was too gangly and not nimble enough for Mick so he sold me on to Justin in the butcher shop (hey, I was not physically in the shop, I would not fit anyway).
What a terrific good luck break in my life, I don’t have to go flat chat through the bush chasing brumbies, dodging rocks and trees and logs. Now I can just amble along, go for the occasional canter or trot, and the other days just chill out with my other 45 mates. Ahhh did I say mates, one of my vices is I love occasionally biting one or more of my mates when I am on the trail rides.
They usually put the tall , relatively “heavy” (none of our guests are heavy, that’s my boss’s motto) on me, I am tall and able to carry good guys or girls.
Other than my occasional biting events, they usually put novice to good novice riders on me.
I’m a good looking thoroughbred with a mean looking fringe over my eyes, but I am a really good horse who tries really hard to please over our challenging terrain.
