    I love me some Jake!!! Loved seeing all of the photos of him while you were competing with him! He still looks really good, and your def right! I too have never seen a leg band like he has. I know you wont have a lot of time, but I do hope that you will be able to make it up to see him! I know that being with Rodeo is a MAJOR stress reliever for me! Hope the move goes well for him, and keep us updated on how everything goes!

    Thank you csimkunas6. I'm glad other people think he looks good too. He is starting to look older as he is loosing muscle in the back and hind quarters from being out of work but otherwise he is doing great. I hope so too, spending time with him was the only down time I've had in months. Going to miss him dearly. Hopefully I'll have more time to visit over the years.

    For an update, we moved Jake yesterday and he is now a happy camper out in the pasture. He (as always) was a champ with the 12 hour drive. It always amazes me that he will hop in the trailer without hesitation after 4.5 hour driving intervals (we stopped twice to get him out and walk him around and offer him water and to let him pee, which of course he wouldn't touch the water or pee...) He was a little sore getting him out for the last stopping point and when we got home, but nothing too bad, I gave him some bute that night and this morning he is feeling great and frisky.

    He trotted around the pasture for the first few minutes once we let him loose then dove into the grass and hay. This morning when I took his blanket off he took off and cantered around the pasture, flagging his tail and snorting...I dare say he likes it here. ;)

    I have a few picture but the internet is slow here, so they may have to wait. I'll try to upload some.

    This one only took 15 minutes...so that means you all will probably have to wait for the rest. Lol.

    Beautiful horse. It's amazing how well rounded he is, being able to do both western and english. Many horses aren't able to do that. Lovely.

    Thank you Wetrain and FruityFilly. =)

    Thank you Riverbelle! Unfortunately we ran out of time to do everything I wanted to do. I had wanted to work towards eventing as well but the ringbone got in our way. ;) He was smart and always very very willing. I would have loved to go farther with english work, (we still needed TONS of work) but it is what it is. He never said no to any jumps, completely honest. He also gave barrels and gymkhana work his all. He really tried for me.
