*pics* Update on Project Horse

So, as some of you know, I'm working on a project horse for my dad's friend. Just riding him and getting him back in shape. I'm not sure how old he is, but he's a Quarter Horse gelding. Lol. But please, critique away on any changes and things I need to work on. I'm very open to suggestions!!

Oh, and his owner took him off the field and I can tell he's a lot less chubby because there isn't as much of a valley through his loins/rump and such, lol!!

Sorry, pic overload!!!

My first day of riding him, lets say it was....um....July 1st. Lol











And yesterday, July 23

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Hahahaha!! Thanks guys!!

Lol! There are no locks on the barn doors!! Hehehe

But really, he is the SWEETEST horse you'll ever meet!!! He's such a sucker for getting groomed!! Hahaha! He'll just stand there and let you do anything to him. He just wants all the attention in the world!! And he isn't that old. I'd guess he's about 10 or 12 years old. He doesn't do much--just hangs around the farm with his other buddy, lol. The only time he works is when I come out to ride him!! Hahaha!

Yes, I've noticed that, too. I've been meaning to ask his owner when the farrier is coming out. Thanks for reminding me!!!
