    Talking Introducing... My new horse!

    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!

    Nice and I think his eye just has a pigment of somesort. I don't think its anything to worry about.

    It almost looks like little brown bubbles... very curious. I haven't ever seen it in another horse before so it caught be off guard. Hopefully it's nothing! :)

    He's cute.

    Most horses have those bubbling things in their eyes, you just don't see them because they're so dark. I can't for the life of me remember what it's called, but I know it's to help shield the pupil from harsh light.

    He is so cute! Congratulations and I wish you both the best.

    He's lovely! Don't worry about those eye things - they are like sunglasses, sometimes they grow pretty big, but they don't bother the horses at all.

    Congratulations! He is handsome. I agree that his eye looks normal to me.
    As for building a topline, anything that makes your horse contract his abdominal muscles will build his topline. Going over poles, going up and down hills, backing up, backing up hills, transtions up and down. Stuff like that.
    There is a white mark on his high whither bone. Is that a souvenir from a ill fitting saddle?

    I am so happy to hear that his eye looks normal! Can't believe I haven't seen it before in a horse! Haha!

    Thanks tinyliny! I heard lots of forward movement with a long low stretching head and neck is good for a topline too. I wish we had some hills at the barn... We shall find more ways! =)

    And no, that spot on his withers is just a dirty coat. Haha! But his swayback is. He had a beautiful topline when I first leased him. He will have it back in no time I'm sure!
