Well, I guess I have had him for almost 2 months now, but life has been so crazy I still call him new. Graduated from optometry school (I'm a doctor now .... wow, kind of nuts), got married, started a new job, moved into a new apartment, and just about everything else I could possibly do all at once!
His barn name is "Red", he's 6 years old, and while he is a bit flabby (lack of riding, that outa be getting better now), he is built like a brick ****house! His stocky 15.1 build is certainly a change-up from my long-legged 16.1 Beau (who unfortunately, at the age of 14, is now an arthritis-stricken pasture buddy only ).
Red is VERY friendly and loves nothing more to be inside your bubble, wanting attention. His previous owners, albeit great owners (I know them personally), did spoil him on this manners problem, so we're working on it.
He is high-spirited and will go-go-go if you let him. From riding him the last month or so, and from watching him in the corral and pasture, WOW I cannot wait to finally get him started on the barrel pattern! He can fly and he can plant it and turn. And being a Texas High Dasher grandson, I expect no less of him.

Anyway, so here's picture overload!
When I went to go look at him, before purchasing.
Our first ride, the day I brought him home. Was just trying to get him to stand still for the picture! (He's getting better at standing still .... we are working on it.)
In the barn, before we went for a ride!
Can you say, booty?
Beautiful day for a ride! He always comes to greet me in the pasture. (And I may just always happen to have a few carrots for him.....)
And photobucket just quit working. So I guess I have to post the rest later!
