Just a few new pix of Rafe, John, and Bess (with a vid)

Just wanted to share some pix and video of the drive/ride today. John and Bessie are doing really well and match up nicely. I think we are probably going to take a picnic to the lake if the weather permits tomorrow. Anyway, on to the pix.

Rafe: He looks almost ready to ride. LOL JK. Though he took well to the pad on his back. He just walked around until the wind blew it off. He jumped a bit when it hit the ground but I put it back on a couple of times and he just stood there with no halter or rope like an old broke ranch horse.

And now on to the pix of them driving. I was beside the wagon on Dobe.

And now the vid.

Aww! They all look so great. And Oh My Goodness. Rafe is like... .... the horse Godzilla (only way cuter than Godzilla....) or something. He's HUGE! ROFL!

John and Bess make a great pair, they look so nice together. Rafe looks like he wants to join in!

By the way, he is getting so big! How tall is he now? Looks to me around 13ish hands.

I don't know, I haven't sticked him recently. I need to find my stick and get an accurate measure. I know that I am 5'5 and the middle of his back is up to my armpit. He may end up too big to be a useable saddle horse. I sure hope not.
