I love that we have matching horses, but it is kinda a pain if they are out in the pasture. When they are by each other or up closer, Titan is a good hand taller so it's easy to pick him out.
So far they are both amazing. I've actually ridden Titan probably a dozen times before and he is a real nice horse, we just have to work on his Whoa. Stardust on the other hand is absolutely amazing. If I didn't know better, I would assume she was a 20 year old trail veteran.
Now our only hurdles are to get them both a little fattened up and to find saddles that fit their high withers. My saddle sits on her withers and I know that has to be uncomfortable.
Yea I think that's true. The gelding is 8 years old and the mare is 7. The gelding was off track in 2008 and the mare 2009. Neither one of them had been ridden prior to me riding them since they were on the track. The first ride, they were both ten times better than my very highly trained barrel mare who is 15 and has been on trails for the last few years.
