Approx. 5-6yo 16hh dapple grey gelding. His brands are very hard to read because of his colour and being clipped (it's a standing argument - I see 13 at the top, but my friend sees 30 and my instructor can't see any of it), but he is definitely a thoroughbred. His owner called him Jet, as she was also unable to identify his brand and he's too old to be chipped.
But he's just adorable. He just has such a pleasant expression, and he's pretty sensitive - it took a little while for me to consciously be lighter with my legs. Jet here will be a challenge, but I'm going to give it a good try - and I'll have my instructor to help me too. Fingers crossed.
Okay, the gear all came with him except the bit. I swapped out the Dr. Bristol he had for a jointed full cheek, because I plain don't like their palate crunching action, but he's got a nice mouth and wasn't strong with the snaffle so I think I'll see how he goes for a while. Anyway, on to the photos. They are pretty big, which is why they're all linked, and a few might be a bit dark on some screens. Sorry. =D
Ohsnap, he's a cribber. Good thing all the yards are metal and the fences have pigtails, eh? =D
