He's lovely, I think you'll have lots of fun and hopefully he'll be a less stressful partner to get out and about on. I understand your connection with Amber but think he might be just what you need at this moment in time.
Congrats he is pretty. My guess is that he is a Irish sport horse my mare looks actually like you’re horse she is a Irish sport horse the only difference is that she is bright bay in the summer but is his color in the winter.
What a lovely sort, I am not seeing any Welsh in him, there is something ponyish about him, I wonder if he is TB on a large quality pony, maybe an intermediate type pony. Not a fashionable cross now but common in years gone by.
