    Have I mentioned lately...

    How much I love this big guy?

    It is so easy to forget sometimes that I only started him under saddle in about June. So far, he's been completely trustworthy. It doesn't seem to matter how long it's been since he was last rode or what the weather is doing, he's always centered and calm. I can pull him out and ride him however the heck I want; bareback, saddled, bridle, halter, without so much as a hint of a problem.

    So, without further ado, here's my big baby, Rafe (various pictures, not all of them really recent).


    He'll lead up next to anything and stand rock steady while I climb on.




    He has even carried me faithfully home...at a lope...in the pouring rain...bareback and in a halter....while I had my eyes closed against the rain.


    Semi trucks going by on the highway? No problem


    Walking right up next to a loud oil pump? No problem!


    Standing here looking gorgeous both naked and under saddle? Check ;)






    Proof of total awesomeness? Check

    It's crazy how young horses are just like sponges. I started the ones at work under saddle about the same time and they are so far along now it's crazy...You don't think it's possible to get them so broke so fast, but they just absorb all you give them!

    I absolutely love this big ol' guy. He's a one in a million!

    You have no idea how much I love Rafe. What an amazing gelding...with an amazing trainer! Is he as comfy as he looks to ride bareback?

    Thanks ya'll .

    Endiku, he's a little more angular bareback than he appears (he's not as flat as even Dobe is) and it took a little getting used to, but he's definitely comfortable.
