    Love his markings. Especially those ears. He's come along nicely.

    He's coming along super nicely! It only took a month, a month and a half but he finally stopped trying to bite everything and everyone (of course gelding probably helped with that. Nevermind the constant corrections )

    Now if I could only strap on my big girl panties and try cantering him. I may wait till we're on a trail and going up a hill.

    He has a massive ADD problem. He's not use to being in an active place so he gets distracted by horses being walked by, people walking by, you name it and he's busy looking at it. So I'm busy trying to move his feet and get him paying attention to me. I'm going to start tying a horse in the ring and having my friends make random distractions to hopefully break him of that problem.



    No pictures to share, but here's a pic of his Daddy. Not sure if I posted this on an earlier page.

    16.1 and 1400 pounds. Just Shockin' Y'all

    Aww, he's such a sweet looking guy. I love appaloosas!

    You may have already said this, but what is his breeding? He looks so dainty, but that picture of his daddy doesn't look dainty at all!

    I'm looking forward to more pictures!

    He's halter bread, his pedigree is on the 1st page. Just Shockin Y'all is his sire, and All ways Always is his Dam (he's listed on all breed pedigree. Link on 1st)

    He's filling out really well, but he's got a very short compact build. Very very short backed.

    Ah I see. I apologize, I did see the pedigree linked on the first post, but I didn't see it, so to speak. I just jumped ahead to the pictures. His head looks very Arabian-like which is why I asked.

    He's lovely, and I look forward to more pictures!

    He does have a very Arabian like head. Nothing "Average/full size horse" fits him, I have to go down to cobb sizes.

    I've been asked a few times if he's got Arabian in him because of it, but if he does it's generations and generations and generations (etc) back.

    He's 90% Foundation Appy

    I was looking through some old photo's of when I first got Sammy and am happy with the weight he's put on and his overall general better health.

    From the day I got him



    To yesterday. My friend got her snazzy camera out and snapped some pictures. Little mini-photoshoot before winter comes.












    He still has a slight attitude problem. If he gets frustrated or mad with something his first reaction is to try to bite, which is immediately reprimanded. He swings his ass at people when he's free lunged in the ring, but it's really too large to do free-lunging in (we just did it for the pictures.) I think I got more of an exercise trying to get him to move than he did trotting around in circles.

    He.Is.So.Lazy.

    Since I've had him I've taught him to:
    .Pick up all four feet (he would kick if you tried)
    .Stand for Farrier
    .Tie
    .Lunge
    .Stand for the vet
    .Yield hindquarters
    .Yield Forequarters
    .Back
    .Saddle broke
    .Take a bit
    .Blanket
    .Broke to Ride (Very green)
    And most recently
    .Vacuum!
