Doesn't he just make you want to climb on and just go for a nice long ride? I like him best of all the ones you have put up. He just looks like he is already "Yours." Does that make sense?
I have always loved that horse you find that feels like home the moment your butt hits the saddle. Good luck with the PPE. *crossing fingers this is THE one cause he looks like you have been riding him for a couple years*
What a beautiful boy! When you talked about how he was at first, I was expecting a giraffe headed horse with 10" long ears and no rhythm When I saw the pictures of him, I was starting to wonder what you'd gotten yourself into.
But then the videos. I'm absolutely amazed! His movement is so free and forewards, but at the same time obviously under control and theres no doubt that he's listening to you. He looks like he has a great mind, which is all you can ever ask of a horse. He's wonderful, and I can't wait to see how he comes along as he gets in shape and learns to use himself properly!
He passed pretty much everything, but only semi-passed his hind right leg. So, we've taken xrays, and I have to wait till morning for the results booo!!
But, it was stiffness and maybe slight lameness rather than hopping noticeable lameness, and during the lunging afterwards no issues ;D
