    Thanks everyone and Blue Eyed Pony haha you will have to pry him away lol and it wouldn't be easy :P He will hopefully be my next eventer/dressage horse. He is quite quick and agile on his feet can turn on a dime too. He has the TB athleticism and speed which is what I was hoping for. (Sorry I ramble on a little)

    That jump was 1.15 which he only did a few times apart from the X bar warm up and he popped over it like he had done it 100 times... He jumps the round bale in his paddock too when he is having a run.. He just wants to be an eventer. He moves well enough in the dressage ring and has the jump ability to top it off. I am very exited about his future.

    Sorry about rambling again...

    You can ramble! He's absolutely dreamy, and if he was mine, I wouldn't shut up about him! I'm very jealous, I have a lovely little TB but she's not as nice as your guy, or as keen of a jumper... yet [I've free jumped her, too, but only 70cm]

    Show us more!!! Since I don't have a lovely Clydie cross, I'm just going to have to live vicariously through you!

    Haha, that's her in my avatar :) There are a fair few pics and a couple of videos here: Crit horse - NOT RIDER PLEASE - and where to from here??

    She just made 16hh but she's a very slender little thing. I'm only 5'4 but on her I look taller than I am!

    What are you feeding him? There are a few things you could give him that might help him stay black year-round, most popular is paprika but you have to watch that because it's swabbable, so it's no good for horses that compete. I'm fairly full-bottle on coat darkeners that are available in Australia so if you want I could tell you what I know :)

    Thanks Candycanes :)
    She is lovely! I wish I was shorter I hate being tall!! You look just the right size on her!!

    I won't feed paprika due to the swab issue (Although not a problem for a while) and for the fact he just will not eat it at all lol.. He is fed Lucerne Chaff, Oats, Rice Bran, Sunflower Oil, Salt and brewers yeast.. Just to break it down (I weigh my feeds by CBF typing lol) Of course with grass hay and some Lucerne hay. I tried livermol and no luck with that again (I found it does not work the best on black horses) on my chestnut it worked very well. I think it is just him. He still does stay quite dark.. Doesn't help that he is a hot horse and will sweat a little even when naked or in a cotton on any day 30+

    Yep livamol doesn't work too well on my bay either, unfortunately my chestnut doesn't do well on it [most darkening feeds send her lame] but have you tried turmeric? I've seen that work really well on all colours and as far as I know it isn't swabbable. Sunny seeds are awesome for darkening too, we had a pali go from almost white to really dark chocolate on them.

    But sounds like your problem is more sweat bleaching than anything else...

    And thank you, I'm very lucky to have her. I love big horses, and I love that Magic has the movement of one without eating as much as one - she's just on grass at the moment!

    I have heard of it and have been thinking about trying it but still don't think it will make much difference as I think its a little sweat related along with just how his summer coat is. I give him sunny oil instead of seeds as it works out cheaper lol.. haha that would be good. Buster isn't on much feed compared to my TB thankfully lol

    Photo's on the lunge today :)
