He's all ready to be a member of the Red Hats and Purple Chaps!
Yes, yes I do torture him. New bell boots, and a foal blanket.
I love him.
I dig this. I didn't edit it! I panned just right, hahaha. Got it all blurry but him. It kind of messed with my head and gives me a headache.
I also put those bell boots on him for the first time. He over steps and clicks his feet sometimes. Sometimes pretty badly. We'll see if they help. He walked like his back legs were made of glue for a bit and then got over it.
Not bad! First time he wore the eye thing too and it didn't phase him.
Pretty impressive considering in August 2008 when I got him, I couldn't even open a saddle pad near him without him spooking and bolting away from me. I can't tell you how many lead lines and halters we wrecked.
Thank goodness for slip knots and break away halters. He's great now though. Just about nothing bothers him. ...except those big scary rocks.
