Midas was born May 7th, 2011. Both his parents are APHA and I had all the paper work to send in to register him but I never did. (by the time we had the whole purchase sorted out and price agreed on it was over the time they give you to register without a fine and I just didn't bother doing it.) Midas Paint His dam was HYPP N/N, so no one panics. XD
2 year old spring:
2 year old summer:
2 year old fall:
He's been bridled, saddled, ground driven. I've laid over him bareback a few times and he's cool with having weight on him. He's at the point where I'm sure he's ready to move on but I had an awful incident with a horse I was riding a year ago that resulted in several broken bones and shattered confidence. I've ridden -once- since then and spent the most time in pain and terrified, even though the gelding was a trooper. So he's ready to go further, I however am not. I hope to gradually build up to the point I can actually -sit- on him without having a panic attack by spring (no fault of his own, he's been a complete saint about it). He's hands down one of the best minded horses I've had the pleasure of working with.
