My friend said that he's already starting to shed out. O.o We've had a couple of warm days so far, but she said there are clumps of hair all over his stall. She thinks I should body clip him this summer.

Picture time!!

We went for a 3.5 hour trail ride today. It wasn't as much fun as it should have been...mainly because apparently my boy is afraid of open spaces. Lol Anyway, got some pics when we stopped for lunch and when we were relaxing after the ride back at the barn.

Stopped for lunch:



Drafty butts drive me nuts!



Playing hard to get:



Wendy has FOOD!!!

"I will not drink from the Stock Tank of Death! Did you seeeeee the big orange monster in there?! It's going to eat me!" (the "big orange monster," by the way, was a 12" long goldfish lol)

"Oh fine. I'll drink. Hey! This is good!"


"Is there really an orange monster in there? Dude! Let me see!"


Heifers and calves that were a couple of corrals away. After the initial "ZOMG! What are those?!", the boys proceeded to ignore them completely. The calves were TINY and so adorable!




After our ride...
Showing off my new saddle blanket I made :-D

Aires' new halter. It's draft size. Yes, the nose is big, but the rest of it fits perfectly.




Hand-grazing the boys on the road by the stable (where our BO had Wendy park her trailer):

I know it isn't a pic, but I found the video of Aires' first ride and got it uploaded to YouTube, so I thought I'd share. Keep in mind, this was his first ride EVER and the trainer's first time riding a horse that had never been ridden before. I left the audio with our silly comments 'cuz I think it's funny (some of the jokes only we at our barn would get, but that's okay lol). This also happened to be the day I sprained my ankle coming off that stupid mare, which is why my friend asks me if I need help getting down at the end.

Not sure why it double-posted. I only clicked the "Post Quick Reply" button once. Stupid computer.

that's awesome that you have a video of his first ride! I can't remember, was he 2yrs old or 2 1/2 when you guys first started him?

He was about 28 months when the BO started working with him and 30 months when he had his first ride. I started teaching him to lunge as soon as I got him, so that cut the BO's training time in half. The BO worked with him VERY piecemeal. He'd do maybe on day a week, or one day every other week. He was saddled a total of three times before he was ridden.
