I forget how big he is.

It has been so long since I rode Pokey that sometimes I forget how big he is. I had to let everything on my saddle out about 2 holes from where I rode Dobe (and he's not exactly small, 14.3 and 1050 pounds). My FQHB saddle looks too narrow for him and my breast collar looks small on him.

Anyway, thought I would share some pix of him from our ride today. He hasn't even been caught in about 4 months. Other than one little crow hop the first time I asked for a lope, he did great.

He is an absolute monster and makes my saddle look small. LOL.

Haha, he moves like one too. He is the most uncomfortable horse to ride in the history of horses.....or riding. He is rough and his body moves a lot side to side at the walk and trot so trotting him for any length of time results in a side ache. LOL. But rope something and he'll drag it.

That boy is built!!! I'm so jealous, he's so handsome!

He's gorgeous, but I'm so glad he's not mine. I'm just not a big horse person. I do love his coloring though. My fiance says having a big horse 16+ hand horse just gives more incentive to hang on! I prefer smaller horses so when I do come off the ground isn't so far away!

Thank you RoCru, I think he's a handsome boy as well.

PDrifter, he really isn't all that tall, maybe 15.2. It's just that he is so bulky for that height. I bet he easily weighs 1200+ pounds.

RJ, I'm not sure you would like him very much. Even though he is a nice horse, he really isn't all that fun to ride. He's incredibly rough and terribly touchy. And cold backed, did I mention that? LOL. Every day it's like he has never seen a bridle or saddle before and is on borderline freakout until after he is saddled. Glad he's Dad's horse, I probably wouldn't ride him very much.
