    He is just adorable! His weight is coming along nicely! Love to see that he isnt getting fat..but bulky. Great job!

    When I was riding Nico he was 14.2 and then I switched to Rosie who is 16.3 tall and 16.3 wide. Then I had to switch back to Nico and I swear I was riding a hackney! He felt so short and slight! He was short but slender was never something that would cross your mind when you saw him!

    Beautiful pictures! You are so fortunate to have someone to take photos for you!

    He's a very good boy. I'm on a modeling site so I just sent a message to a few photographers to see if someone would like to take some picture for me. One said absolutely yes he could be there whenever so we arranged a time to meet at the arena. The second photographer wasn't available but still wants to take some pictures so we are arranging a shoot in the next month or so and he said he's interested in coming to some of the schooling shows too.

    He is so freakin HUUUUGE!!! I actually think his build contributes to your lower leg problems as he is so wide that it makes it harder for you to keep your heels down and your toes forward, not a critique, just some consolation for ya

    Beautiful pictures, I especially love the one in your avatar, you guys look like you are flying!

    Thank you for the suggestion!
    It could be but I think it's more his movement and I was wearing brand new unbroken boots. My normal riding boots I don't seems to have a big problem. And my avatar I had him in a full gallop and it felt like we were flying. It's amazing when he's at full speed!

    Those new boots were hell trying to keep my heels down and with the busted zipper I don't think that helped. He's pretty thin at the moment (working on that) and deep through the chest so maybe it's because I really don't have a lot of thickness under me to grab yet? My mare was dangerously huge when I got her and didn't have any problems with my legs and heels. I'm pretty used to riding big.

    I think it's his movement that I'm still not completely used to. His trot I've gotten down but his canter and gallop pull me forward at the beginning and throw me back at the end. The middle of it I'm centered and evened out with him but that start and stop gets me. It'll take practice. It's so big and up and forward I'm not used to a horse that literally lifts and jumps into a canter and hops out of it.
