Muscatyr at 6 months,and at right, at about 3 months.
I purchased Muscatyr as a weanling, and aside from a few weeks of initial saddle training, I did all his training myself.
Muscatyr was a big boned, large and impressive horse for an Arabian. He was a full 15.2H, by the stick, barefoot.
He was fairly successful as a dressage horse, but that was not really his career of choice. So when he was 10 years old, he changed careers. He was much happier as an endurance horse. And I enjoyed getting out of the arena as much as Muscatyr did.. Muscatyr was my good buddy and we had lots of fun on our endurance rides. And we made a lot of new friends, too.
Muscatyr had emergency colic surgery in June, 1999, and for a while I thought I would lose him. But he came though surgery with flying colors, and was back under saddle within 3 months and never looked back.
Unfortunately, Muscatyr foundered in Feb., 2000 from a metabolic problem that we were never able to pinpoint, despite all types of tests. He recovered from the acute phase, but was forced to "retire." He drew "social security" and helped babysit Fling and served as Donerail Farm's official "greeter" until he was forced to leave us way too early.
