good friends HUGE horses

I have an old cowboy friend who keeps his 2 horses on 25 acres. He used to have 2 horses and 4 mules. But he traded the mules for the 2 babies he has now. And his 2 main horses are HUGE the gelding has a HUGE neck. And mare has a stomache so big it looksl ike she's pregnant with triplets.

Here is the little yearling I was working with. As I was thinking about buying her off of him. Or doing a trade by getting his horses into shape and then jsut taking this one off his hands. She had never really been haltered before so we worked on that and leading.







This is one of his main horses named Birdie. Who looks VERY pregnant but she definitely isn't



The other little filly he has. This one look quite young but i'm not sure on how old. Definitely under a year though.


His main Gelding Buddy. This guy is HUGE and when someone is riding him because his back is so short and he's so wide. He looks like a hippopotamus...

oh he definitely is fun lol I do tend to like my horses a bit on the fluffy side lol although these arn't mind. I do think these are a bit too blubbery but i'm trying to help him get them in shape. And he is a fun ride. He is FAST and he loves to go go go go despite how "big" he is lol he can run all day long and he dripping sweat and still wanting to go even more. He's got tons of endurance to not have been ridden in 2 years. And birdie is more of a kids type horse suposedly but I haven't been on her.

Holy cow, and I thought my horses were fat .

That little bay filly is certainly a looker and she has a nice kind eye.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
