Talking Photo Crazy ... mostly of Red

Okay, I've been asked for photos of Red, as I've posted a few of Shotgun. And here are some!

Disclaimer: LOTS of pictures.


The day I went to look at Red and purchase him in May.




First ride at my parents, when I brought him home.




About a month or so later, in the barn getting ready to go riding.




Starting him on the barrels (and then going off the barrels to work on some more training-type issues).






Coming in from the pasture



Ready to go ride!



Feed is good. YUM!



And we're attempting to grow a thicker, longer tail, all bagged up and conditioned. (Now that the flies have froze away)



SMILE! Have a good day!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Oh and of course, Shotgun got in there too. I don't have as many pictures of him yet though. At least ones I haven't already posted! (More pictures of Shotgun here! OT: So proud of my Shotgun. )

He was just a hair under 15.2 hands when I measured him.

My yearling (Shotgun) is gaining on him quick! I haven't measured him but he's gotta be at around 14.3+ hands now. He's gonna be a BIG boy!

Is Red seriously taller than Ruger? o.O Ruger is only 15hh. Wow....

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

LOL, and I'm actually wishing Red was taller!! I was so used to my big Beau (just under 16.1 hands) and his long stride. So I am hoping Shotgun grows!!

Thanks Drum! And he is so in-your-face too! A complete personable horse.

His thick, muscle build drew me in to buy him. However, he has gotten called fat more than once, because he does not have a sucked-up belly. He certainly could have toned up more, but he's not fat! Just how he is built. (Although yes he was very fat when I bought him. Never been in shape before either!)

Took a few more photos of Shotgun yesterday morning.
