That is a beautiful horse! He looks like a Tenessee Walker! And looks like a lot of fun to ride. :)

Hahaha! Nope! He's a Percheron/paint cross. Dam was a big ol' 16.3-17hh Percheron and sire was a 15.1hh paint. He stands right about 16.1hh at the withers and 16.2hh at the butt right now.

He is a TON of fun...when he isn't deciding to act his age.

Okay, they're just crappy cell phone pics, but I got a couple of pics of Aires after I worked on deshedding him today. I swear I got enough hair off him to make a mini!

This was just from ONE side of him...and it's just what I managed to pull off the shedding rake before it fell off. There was literally TWICE as much on the ground!


And we're starting to look more like a horse and less like a woolly mammoth!



Now his coat looks like a normal horse's winter coat. lol

I'm just glad he's looking more like a horse and less like a woolly mammoth. lol He does look much...taller...and definitely leaner, than he did before. I seriously thought he'd lost weight a week or so ago when he REALLY started shedding out. I do hope he keeps his feathers, though. They are sooooo handy and I like the way he looks with them.

Thanks, CW! I love that he looks like a Percheron (build-wise) with the paint coloring. Especially in that first pic.

PICTURE TIME!!!

Had SUCH an amazing day today and got pics of it! Had a great ride in the arena and then Aires got his first ever full-on soaped up bath on the wash rack!!

Lunging...such a handsome boy!




In the arena (disclaimer...I was having to fight with him for the first five minutes, as he thought he could just ignore the bit and my leg cues...he soon figured out that wasn't the case...hence the reason my hands are wonky sometimes and my leg cues are over-exaggerated...oh, and my stirrups are new, this was the very first time I'd ever ridden in them, and the necks need to be trimmed down 'cuz they're WAY too wide and slide all over the place):

Drafty butts drive me nuts!

I don't know why, but I love this pic lol

Yes, that's a big ol' grin on my face!


Love it! We're both concentrating sooooooo hard!


MUCH better!

Kinda fuzzy, but apparently he has decided that the trail bridge is going to eat him now

"Right, we're gonna trot now. You getting this?"

Somehow we started half trotting and half side-passing away from the fenceline lol


Trotting back the other way! He did so good! All it took was a squeeze, a cluck and the word "trot" and he took off at a nice, medium trot! And yes, I fail at posting. Stupid stirrups.
