My first horse!!!!!

Most of my life I had been wanting to get a horse, and I finaly did today! A 1 yr old Friesian colt. Named Ced ( pronounced Sid)

He seemed to attach on quite well and followed me around like a very massive dog.

I really don't know to much about horses except what to feed them, he lives on a ranch still and the breeder freind of mine is guiding me a bit.

His father was a 107 point stallion what ever that means, and was registered with some friesian society. Yeah im really new, lol.

Let me know what you think!

In the pictures he is a bit dirty and is solid black and does not have the star.

Aww that's awesome, congrats! He's soo adorable, Fresians are very nice breeds!

What are you planning on working with him on when he gets older?

Ride more, worry less.

General riding and driving. I inherated a fairley new racing buggy, ill post pics tomorrow, it has disc brakes and needs a bit of work, but it shoud work for training.

The only thing I trained on today was walking on a soft nylon training bridle and to only graze when I say its ok. I really don't know when to start training what, I need a godd dvd, any suggestions?

Here is a pic of Ceds mommy she is a really sweet horse, I got a splinter messing with a fence and cursed a bit, so she came over to check if I was ok. Ced seems to be very sensitive as well.

I find it interesting that you know nothing about horses, but that your first horse is a friesian yearling. Why this horse?

The real question is why not? But searously, I didnt pick him he picked me. I work at a ranch to help a friend out and Ced just liked to hang out with me. And with him bieng a little over 1 we had plenty of time to learn together.

Poptart is right on 1 part, the ranch owner is a a relative, he better teach me lol! The wrong part is im not a she and from the face picture post I can see why the "Standard" would be to say she.

Oh, I'm sorry! He*
I thought you were a she, only because my friend's cousin is named Genevieve & her nickname is gene. My mistake, sorry!

Ride more, worry less.
