Spring tune up successfully started!

I am pickled tink with my boy and just had to share. Due to very unpleasant weather and being sick a few times I haven't been able to ride Jack in about 2 months. Now, I love my boy but I admit he's sometimes a grumpy turd,lol. I expected quite an interesting ride, but to my amazement he was absolutely perfect! I stuck to the indoor arena just to be safe, but he acted like we'd ridden every day all winter long! Backed, whoa'd, slow 360s, disengaging hind and forequarters, show and pleasure gait, I am still smiling! It won't take long to get him back into shape and then we can hit the trails!
He just turned 5 and has had a growth spurt over the winter, he's now as big as his RMH sire Legends Storm Traveler, 15.2hh(Yay! It didn't matter if he got any taller but I was hoping he would). Along with the growth up,(besides the normal winter fatties) he has gotten very stout and is built so much like his foundation Morgan mama I can't believe it. He def inheireted mamas ghetto booty,lol. He's shedding horribly and filthy, I am DYING to give him a bath but it's not warm enough yet. Anyway,lol, enough gushing, here are a few pics!
