Sky, his winter woolies are EXTREME! Lol He didn't sweat nearly as much on our ride as I expected him too, though. Tam, my friend's horse, sweated more and his hair isn't nearly as long or thick (this is Tam's first winter not being blanketed). But then again, he's a quarab. Lol

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.

Nice to hear he has a smooth ground-covering trot-that is a wonderful gear!

It is wonderful. There were a couple of times that I honestly didn't even realize he was trotting until we were running up Tam's butt and I had to rein Aires in.

Okay! Finally got pics from my friend who we went on the ride with! Ignore me, the fat cow. Also, there's a couple of pics where it looks like I'm hauling on the reins...I'm not really. One of them, I'm asking him to stand still (he started to walk forward on me) and a couple of the others he's just stretching his neck out and pulling on the reins a little.

He looks like a friggin' pony!

Yes, we were this far back for most of the beginning of the ride. He loves his draft horse plod.

FINALLY caught up!

The really pretty part of the trail:



Not sure what my hands are doing almost at my chest in this pic...thinking I may have been picking them up to ask him to stop...or resettling them...or...I have no clue. Lol

"Whazzat over dare?!"

"Stand still, monster!"

"Fine...geez, Mom."

"Oh, hai!"

"Yes, I rolled in the burrs. And you point is?"

"What's Tam into? Anything I can help destroy?"

Get this...Tam is about 15.1-15.2hh and he and Aires are on relatively level ground. O.o

Tam: "Back off, draft boy!"
Aires: "Dude, everyone loves me! What's your problem?!"

"You haz more carrots and...stuff?"

Tam: "Back off! My carrots!"
Aires: "Dude...chill."

Only a few pictures came through, but they were neat. I hope it's just my computer, so maybe they'll show up later.
