Thanks, Sky! He does look like a big ol' teddy bear. They should make stuffies of him. I think they'd sell REALLY well.

I cant believe how tall Aires is though! He would make Rodeo look like a Mini! haha
No one believes he's only two. Heck, I can barely believe he's only two. lol

Okay, just because I'm now addicted to Picnik and was having fun with a quote I found online about horses, I made this from the cell phone pic I took on our very first trail ride. I think it turned out kinda cool.

Picture time! We turned Aires, CJ (my friend's arab gelding) and Rex (the trainer's arab gelding) out together today and were playing with them. I took quite a few pics, so here's my faves. Enjoy!

CJ is the dark bay, Rex is the bright bay...and you all know my beastly.

Fighting just like brothers lol


I haz your halter! (Don't worry...right after this my friend went out and took Rex's halter off)

Rex...also known as TURBO!

I love how while the arabs are going nuts, my boy stands there like "Ummmmmmmm...what?"

Runnin' with the boys! (Rex is 15.2hh, CJ is 15.3hh and Aires is about 16hh lol)

And they're off!

*Brake squeal sounds*

They started in this formation...

Then ended up in this formation...

Back the other way...geez, it's like watching a train!

Great shot of Aires running...even if it is a bit far away:

Love how the two arabs are puffs of dust, but Aires is clearly visible lol

Not sure why, but I hear "Born Free" playing when I see this pic

"And they're rounding the back corner! It's CJ in the lead, followed closely by Rex, with Aires bringing up the rear (as usual)!"

Wish this pic was zoomed in a bit more...LOVE IT!

"Wait for meeeeeeeeee!"

Pretty sure he was taking off into a canter from either a walk or a stand still in this pic

Three horse pile-up!

I love it...with their long arab necks, you'd never believe Aires is taller than both of them. lol

Look familiar?

Love these two pics of CJ:


"Imma just follow you, k?"



A brief respite:

And they're off again:

How did I end up with such an absolutely stunning, wonderful horse?! I am truly blessed!

Hahahaah oh Aires!!!!! He looks amazing!!! He looks quite bulky, and almost slow with the Arabs, not in a bad way of course ;)

Does he keep up with other horses? Rodeo is slow as molasses! Everyone makes fun of how he does everything in slow motion....he can get up and go when he feels is necessary of course! lol

Great pics as always!! Hes such a cutie! What a coat he has too! Wow!!!! Rodeo has a similar thick, long coat, and looks like a mammoth out there! lol

Thanks! When he's fresh, he can keep up with them pretty well. CJ is a BEAST when it comes to speed, though. The trainer and my friend were out doing an endurance training ride and they let their boys run. The trainer was carrying a GPS and they clocked CJ at 42MPH...and he wasn't even completely opened up!

Where the arab boys lose him is on the turns. They've got that quick arab lightness, whereas it takes him a city block to turn when he's at a dead run.

His winter coat is about 4" long in some places. Yay for not having to blanket! And I'm sure you all remember that the barn joke is that Aires is part wooly mammoth.
