Country Woman, Aires is about 16hh at the withers and 16.1-16.2hh at the butt right now...and he's only 2.5-years-old. O.o I love the trails around us. Wish I would have thought to get some pics in between the pics on the flat and then when we're stopped under the tree. BEAUTIFUL country.
Csimkuna, he was amazing for the first half...and then it all went downhill from there (see my journal thread for details). Hence no pics on the way back. And he is huge. It's like riding a barrel that moves really smoothly...except when he decides to showcase his half-a$$ two-year-old trot, which is very jarring. But, if I let him get into a rhythm and don't rein him in, his trot is so smooth you can't feel it.
