Wink Meet John the Percheron Gelding LOL.

So we FINALLY got John cut today. He has been acting like such an ass in the pasture, he has been tied for a couple of days and will remain so until his little hormones get leveled out a bit. Then as soon as he is healed up, we are going to start working him and Bessie on the wagon. *YAY*, since I can't ride him 'til I get a saddle to fit.

Anyway, let me introduce Big John, the Perch gelding.



You can tell he is a little sore by the way he is standing in this pic.


In a way, I am glad we waited as long as we did because I love the huge cresty neck on a draft horse, it makes them look so much bigger and stronger than a flat neck.


He was a little depressed and feeling a little feminine so I spent some time brushing him all out and agreed to braid his mane for him. I need to get some baby oil after his tail. He has got the start of a rat in it.











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/

Nope, until today, he was completely intact. Now he is completely gone. The brain surgery was a success. LOL.

He is really really beautiful. One of my dream horses, a big beautiful Perch.

I'll be right over to pick him up. :)

^^ Okay, he had some driving about a year ago and has about 6 rides under saddle in Feb. Good luck with him ;p

Kidding LOL, I don't think I could part with him. He is going to be such a sweetie now that he is losing his "studly impulses" . I am now looking for a perfect draft saddle to get him going again.

No.

Not good.

Not good at all.

See, there's something really really wrong with this picture, and you should be ashamed (*wags finger of shaaaammmeee!*) of it.

The problem is that John is still in your pasture. I will forgive you if he is in my pasture by noon tomorrow. Or else.




*rawr*.

He's SO gorgeous. <33
Rocco is a draft X. He kinda looks like you took a draft and shrunk it down with a shrink ray. LOL.
