Well, it has finally happened! A horse of my own! I am so excited and happy! I've known George for 2 years and leased him for about a year and a half. For the past 6 months I haven't really seen him, but a few weeks ago his old owner offered him to me and now, he is mine! Gah! So anyway, enough chat. Here he is! He is a 13 or 14 year old Saddlebred X TB (we think... Any Imput?) His show name will be Suave Jorge (Smooth George)!
He needs a little weight and more muscles! He's already started dropping like he normally does in the winter. Nothing a warm blankie and weight building supplement shouldn't fix though! I know his topline needs some work too. I am going to have the vet/chiro come adjust him and make sure my saddle fits him well before we start working on that though. Poor saddle fit has always been an issue with him.
Any imput on exercises that will really help build his topline back up once we get going again?
Oh, one more question. I was looking at him closely yesterday and his left eye has some kind of... I don't even know what to call it. Anybody else know?
It doesn't seem to impair his vision... but I haven't noticed it before. I'll have the vet check it out when she comes to do his adjustment.
Goodness this has turned into quite a long post. Sorry guys! Anyway, that's my boy! =) Just had to share my excitement!
