    Thankyou, but if you see him personally you would certainly have a different opinion, let's just say he is rather round. But gorgeous.

    Omg this is such a cute horse!!! He's got the cutest head and he looks like he carries himself very well! Did you buy him or are you still loaning?

    I am loaning him at the moment, but you never know what the future holds. But I do have a feeling that his owner won't give him up, after all she has had him since he was 3.
    You are very right indeed, he does carry himself elegantly and has very comfortable paces.
    I am throughly enjoying riding him.
    Kind Regards Lisa.

    I've been around a few horses that nip and bite and I found that a good way to solve this is when they turn their head to bite you form your arms into that chicken wing shapeand flap them *not too fast yoiu might scare the horse*. So that if the horse hits your arm it wont be your fault it's his. Oh don't chase him with your arm doing that just stand where you are and "shake it". It works for me and soon enough he'll stop. :)

    Lisa he is very nice. Gorgeous, i'm glad your having fun with him .

    So about the nipping my pony used to nip alot and when he would I would give him a quick pinch on the nostril. This stopped Sary very quickly- i've now had him 7 years and he only nips very occassionly.
