    The new guy, Sour, and the OTTBs

    Pretty much just a mish-mash photoshoot of the horses from yesterday ^^

    First let me introduce you guys to JW (John Wayne...this is what happens when you let the boys name a horse) who came out to our farm a few weeks ago. Very interesting story- he was abandoned in a field for two years just grazing away before the pasture owner got fed up with him eating all of the grass and called us. Sold him to us for a song- literally, we payed $200 for him, since we needed another horse to replace Pudding for lessons and he was that cutsey 13.2 lesson horse type guy, so we took him. After letting him settle in I tacked him up to see if he'd been started under saddle, and as it turns out, he has some very extensive training. Within twenty minutes I had him bending around my leg like a pro, doing serpentines, transitions, rollbacks, you name it! YAY US! I'm going to do some fine tuning with him since he hasn't been ridden in years, but what a steal! And he's just the sweetest thing too. Loves to 'go go go!'

    Then Peppin, who's doing much better after his incident and is growing like a weed- already 14.3hh at the butt and only 7 months old!

    Bree, who's on the slow road to recovery

    And then ofcourse, a buttload of beautiful Sour ;D ignore how wet she is in some of the pictures, I bathed her after she worked to try and get the last of that winter hair off of her.

    'So where are we going, ma?'

    In the cart, ready to go!

    A quick video... yeah. Turns out that driving a green horse on her third trip with one hand and a camera does NOT work well XD and she decided to play dumb and pretend that she couldn't hear or feel me asking her to trot, silly thing. She tends to have a hard time turning still too, because it takes some time to learn that she has to PUSH to turn. My trainer says its totally normal though and not to worry. We'll see xD at the end you can hear me going 'aw dang...guys I'm going to turn this off. Driving green horses with one hand doesn't work well.'

    Aand some pictures after working

    having her mane braided makes her head look SO huge and her neck so scrawny...

    By the way guys, do you think that having her bridle path like this will bother her? I don't have clippers so I used hair scissors...heh

    I can't for the life of me figure out what his color is though...or even his breed XD I suppose he could be a quarter pony, but he almost looks varnish roan to me and I don't think they come in that color o.o

    LindyVodka- thanks! I'm a bit biased ofcourse, but I have to agree- Sour wins the cuteness contest xD

    Csimkuna- Ok, good to know xD I really wasn't sure. I thought that maybe the prickly hair would be a bit uncomfortable or something. She didnt seem to care though, either way.

    Gallop On- thank you! And honestly I have no idea xD if its not a TB or a QH, I'm at loss with breeds. He does have that trademark ratty tail though, and very faintly striped hooves I think, but the skin around his face isn't mottled at all (which I love. I can't stand mottled skin on appies!) What do you guys think?

    Pictures of his face/body. His neck is really thick O_o he's a very easy keeper even on just hay and grazing.

    No one ever said I was a good judge on guessing breeds, (tehe) but the first thought that popped into my head when I seen him was "Appy"... Just what I think! Cutey boy though
