Cometh The War is still relatively unfurnished and immature. He is however strengthening well now. He has a great action and once he develops more he could make up into anything.
July 20th, 2022
Is much more settled since his gelding. He is still on the weak and immature side but will strengthen into his frame in time. He moves well and riders reports are all very positive with him. I have him on a gradually increasing work schedule which should see him maturing & strengthening well in the coming months.

GIMMEHANDSUP is renamed to COMETH THE WAR. The name is made up from two of our yearlings that passed away. Their names were Comeththehour and Galic War. So a combination of their two names.
