    Meet Rookie

    I went and picked this guy up yesterday. I had ridden him in their riding ring on Friday and loved him! I went back and met the lady right when she was getting out of her car coming home from work and rode him again on the trail on Monday evening with her and her daughter. We took him out with a mare and another gelding which was very hot. She did that so that I could see how he was in all positions on the trail, as well as how he was with another male who thought he was in competition for the mare. It was a cold windy evening, and we got back after dark. He is a very fun ride. It was funny, he was in the lead and we came up on some shiny metal drain pipes on top of the ground, with a few sand bags by them. He stopped and looked at them, started shaking because he was scared, and with a little prodding, he walked toward them a little, then went on by at a walk. The lady was laughing so hard that I thought she was going to fall out of her saddle. She said that she didn't know he could park out and crawl at the same time! Even being scared of something, he didn't bolt, try to whip around on me, or balk at it. He crossed the creeks with ease, and didn't try jumping the ditches. AND, he automatically stopped at the road. Didn't spook at the cars flying by, and went on when asked.

    He has a wonderful puppy dog personality, and gets along very well with Rosie (she has a new boyfriend...lol). He is already low man on the totem pole. I had to watch him eat to keep Rosie from running him off from it. I'll post more pictures of him when I get them. It was too dark last night to get any by the time I got him out of the trailer and introduced the two. I am kind of bummed right now though. It's raining today and I won't be able to ride him this evening.

    We also have a lot of trail riding friends in common. She told me that if he doesn't work out for me that she would give me my money back and gladly take him back. Poor lady cried when we were getting ready to leave with him. They just had too many horses for them to ride. She gave me his bit, and told me to call her in a few days (after he gets well adjusted to his new home) and we'd set up a trail ride. She told me that she was happy that I got him because that means that she'll be able to see him pretty often. I'm so very happy with him!

    And cookies to those of you who actually read through all of this!!!!

    I got new pictures this evening. He still has his winter fuzzies and of course he had to roll in the mud while it was raining. I did brush him out before I took the pictures though :0)
