I love seeing pictures of Aries. I think he is so handsome. I am a sucker for black and white paints not to mention that he is draft cross.
LOVE them!

Your horse is an extension of you.

Tiny, go take a look in the Big Girl Panties thread. I kinda opened my big mouth and said I was going to make a photo montage of actually putting on a pair of "big girl panties" and going for a ride. Meant it as a joke, but then several people said they actually wanted to see it...so I obliged!

Thanks, nicole and csimkuna! He's the best horse in the whole world. Calm, responsive, sweet, smart. I'm just glad he's going to get bigger 'cuz he needs to take up some of my six miles of leg! Lol It looks fine in the pics, but I feel like I'm wrapping my legs down under him when I urge him forward. Oh...and he's butt-high again! His withers are at about 15.3hh and his butt is around 16hh.

Loved the pics-you did just fine, & so did he-a very calm young boy, loved why we were seeing the BGP! Glad you like your Aussie saddle-I love mine & I've had it since the '80's! Had to have new girth straps put on it last year-I wore them out!

Great job!!! Wonderful pictures .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks! Since I'm not used to the position that my Aussie puts me in, and I'm definitely not used to Aires yet, I'm holding off on using the Aussie until I'm a wee bit more comfortable. Hopefully by the time we go on our moonlight ride on the 14th, I'll be comfortable enough with the Aussie to use it (more just to irritate my BO since he thinks anything but Western saddles are ridiculous ). He is an extremely calm boy. Nothing much phases him...not even the kick by that stinking mare.

Thanks, smrobs! My friend made sure she snapped pics when I was least expecting it so I wasn't trying to correct my position or anything like that. I'm very proud of both of us. It'll just get easier from here on out!

Drafty-where is he from? My PMU gelding is by a flashy black/white paint/percheron stallion-Pepper at Ranch 1 in Canada. We didn't get any color-he's like mom, a bay but seeing Aires makes me curious if they are 1/2 brothers? Looking good BTW!

He's from Edelweiss Percherons out of Notre Dame, Manitoba, CA. His sire is the fourth stallion down, Little Bit of Black: Edelweiss Percherons - Stallions .

My BO (who I bought him from) insists he's a PMU foal. His breeder, on the other hand, says he was purpose-bred as a sport/pleasure horse prospect, but they misanticipated the market that year and overbred. Who knows which one is the truth. Lol

And can anyone, without being mean, tell me if my position is as absolutely atrocious as I think it is or if it's not entirely bad? Lol

Thanks, Tayz!

When I started working for one of my friends, lunging her horses, I fell in love with the horse that was to become "my" horse (long story there) because he was a bright bay and that's my favorite color on a horse (other than a nice golden buckskin). When I told her that I loved Dakota because he was a bay, I got a nice long lecture about how you choose a horse based on temperament first, conformation second, and if you end up with a color you like, that's just a bonus. Well, I'd say with Aires I hit the freakin' JACKPOT! He's got everything! Temperament, conformation (every day our trainer finds some new body part of his that she's in love with...first it was his butt, then it was his shoulders, now it's his chest lol), AND amazing color.

As for the people who wanted to buy him...there's all sorts out there. Just like the people (fellow boarders, no less!) who tried to feed him coffee and were pestering my friend about who owns him because they wanted him. She finally said that she owned him and told them to go away. Lol
