Its Calvin!

I went and rode Calvin on sunday and it did not go so good. Were both having a off day he would not even go and so I just got down after about a half hour of fighting with him. So I just got down and brushed him and just bonded just what we need. So here are some pics. Please be nice we are trying to get some muscle back on him and I am trying to lost weight.













12 days until Twiztid ( i get to see my Jamie) then two months until graduation.

You should not have stopped trying to make him go. Now he knows that he can get away with it.

I wouldn't have stopped, Fezick did that a couple times and it took a while but now he just knows I won't leave him alone till he goes. He looks a bit slim, is he utd on worming? I'd be a little worried about sores with the bones having too much contact with the saddle. He's cute though

He has had his worming. What sores are you talking about? He has bite marks from Moccha but they are healed up.

What kind of problems are you having with him? How old is he? What do you do with him?

I didn't see sores, I mean more along the lines of getting sores because he has very little fat to speak of to pad his bones. I'd be worried about the saddle creating sores. I'd work on putting more fat on before trying to work an already pretty slim horse. That's just my opinion.

I agree he looks a little on the lean side. I know it's a big expense but have you had a chance to get his teeth done? It might be an eating problem.

Oh my goodness. He looks almost exactly like my boy Comanche. I have the exact same lime green halter I use on my bay. The only difference I see between our horses is that Calvin is a little bit darker and my boy Comanche has a snip of white on his nose!!!

Don't give in next time. Work until you've done what you've asked him to do. Next time it'll be much harder for you to push through him thinking he can get away with it. I might suggest more padding until you get more weight back on him.

What's his diet? He's a sweet looking fella.
