Arrival Story: We purchased Roper in Ohio at a horse show. The people had a beautiful litter of pups & I asked if there were any females. They said no but there was another male pup back at the trailer that was "not as attractive" as the pups they had out. I felt so bad that they would leave this little guy alone that I said lets see him. You can see where this went, he came home with us! He was just as beautiful as the rest but his ears were floppy. He grew into those big, beautiful ears & so the story goes.
