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