Fatty Mcbutterpants (aka Pilgrim) is a registered 7 yr old haflinger that I will be leasing for ... well as long as I want him. In these pics, my trainer is riding him. It was his first ride of the year, and he did pretty good. A little impatient and very hard in the mouth. The previous owner has let him get away with a lot, so needless to say he will be a challenge. I have enlisted the help of my barn friends and trainers for their guidance. I will also be making a list of 'issues' that he has, and will be addressing them here for extra input.
He is very smart (he picked up his bending and flexing almost right away), and very lovable. I have been working with him a bit, and have now gotten him to come to me when I whistle, which I think is pretty darn cool. He also adores his jolly ball; and is very eager to join the rest of the heard in a week.
He passed his vet check with flying colors, and has been able to get acquainted with a few of the other horses on the property already; his best friend is a clyde.
I do have more pics of him with out a saddle, which I will post later on.
