Carmen and Harvey - New Prospects!

So I've been teasing that I've had a new job with two new colts lately, and here they are.

Carmen is a lovely 4yr old Palomino mare. She is very fat, (Particularly in the belly, I actually thought she was preggers but she's always been like that I guess since the field she is on is extremely rich). She is a lot easier than Harvey, a little more reactive but a lot more athletic and once she trims down and gets finished she will be a wonderful all-around horse.

Harvey is 5, a brown gelding. He's tall, and pretty thick headed. He's not as far along as Carmen is because of this. He is, however, less reactive than she is and is just a big goof. He is probably going to be less apt to spook and be stupid about things. He is also pretty catty (Which surprised me) and in the ground.

Both are currently only green broke, able to go walk/trot/canter both directions and stop and steer. I have had three sessions with them and ridden them twice. I hope that I can get them on a track and maybe run barrels with Carmen later on once she is in shape. Harvey will probably be used as an all-around ranch horse. I think Carmen has the potential to be really strong in a western sport but I'm not sure about Harvey yet so that's why I suggest just an all-around situation for him.

I have more pictures of Carmen than of Harvey because it was dark when I finally got him in the round pen...

Without further ado, here's pictures of the lardballs.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
