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.
