This horse has done well to find you.

Thank you! I do love this horse and spend every day with him. People are usually surprised by how much we've bonded in such a short amount of time. My last horse tragically died in a horrific trailer accident while traveling to a rodeo this past summer. So to have found a horse that has never experienced much affection and then bringing that out of him and seeing him show me affection in return has truly healed my heart. I'm lucky to have found him, and I would do anything to make sure he is always a happy little horse :)

Because he's AQHA, he would be a sorrel and not a chestnut. AQHA registration color guidelines say a sorrel is a bright cherry red that ranges to copper. That's him! He would not be considered a chestnut.

Thank you! I went and double checked his papers and it says sorrel as well. I use to say I would never buy a sorrel because they seemed so common, but now they are really growing on me :) haha!

I agree that he is lovely, but looks particularly worried in the head shot with the bit in. You say you are using a "plain snaffle"-that looks to me like a very skinny-possibly twisted wire?-bit? Was this picture before you switched bits maybe? Perhaps a softer bit that is bigger around would allow him to relax more? Just a thought. I love his color and build!

I love this guy! From what you've said he seems very sensitive as well, why not try a hackamore? It may bump up your bonding with him.

I didn't read all of the posts, but I did catch someone saying he has a tight jaw. My mare had that and when I had a chiro out a few weeks ago she fixed that. So much happier now.

Sorry mybad, that is what I get for reading posts at work! Your GELDING ! Anyways I prefer a little leaner & cleaner throatlatch area as it makes it easier for the horse to give at the poll, but his is not bad at all.
