Billy - just gone 3 years and about to head off to the breaker

Time flies! Billy has just turned 3, and is ready for breaking. I can't believe how quickly that time has gone
A few happy snaps from yesterday in the paddock, enjoying his last few weeks as a paddock ornament.

Wow!!! I've been lurking around hoping for some pictures of him ever since you mentioned him being three and ready for saddle work...I'm so glad to get them! He is absolutely stunning.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Thanks Endiku, I'll get some nicer ones soon if I get a bit of time. He's still hanging onto a bit of winter coat over his back and bum so I'm hoping he drops that soon so I can get some nice summer coat photos!!

Haha yes Billy is a very lucky horse to have a home like he does, and I am equally as lucky to have that view to wake up to every morning. Unfortunately we don't have any riding facilities on the property, it is all too slopey. I've got a small round yard, and a yard and shed up near the house, but once he's under saddle and I finish my time at the academy, he'll be back on agistment so that I can ride regularly. For the next few months I'll just be trailering him up to my coach's place (about 10minutes away) on weekends to ride.

I have been watching him like my own son for 2 years now, makes me smile to see him growing so well.

Haha I know you have I promise I'll put up some breaking photo's for you! Hopefully he goes well, he is like a dog, just follows me around everywhere and always so curious and eager to learn. Fingers crossed he keeps that temperament through to under saddle.

Wow did he turn into a handsome boy. That was a fast few years!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
