just a note - if he's only a few weeks off the track be prepared for a long road of rehabilitation of track letdown that can be mild weight loss to total performance enhancing drug withdrawl.

Hi guys!!

I went to look at a few horses today. But in the end, my mother and I returned to Baltic. I rode him again!!
I have to say, i've fallen in love with this horse!!! He was wonderful... he broke out into a spirited trot when
we started to ride, but then settled down and didn't take off once again at all in any way! He did his best to
do what I asked him. Even when the dogs started to chase one another, he didn't take off/go insane/throw
insane bucks *g* I love his personality and how he rides (*g* even if its unschooled) so much I do not care if
will take months and months of work to teach him -- that is something I look forward to anyway! Bondingess.

When I got off he
walked besides me, I didn't even have to touch the reins or the bridle -- he stopped when I did,
then followed me again, standing perfectly still and in place as I took the tack off in the stable.

I'm going to get him if his vet check cheks out
tommorow, and I'll spend each and every day helping him along and working with him (luckily i also have a trainer
that is VERY experienced with young horses and schooling).

he's just stolen my heaaaaart!! <3


Not my gag bit. its the dealers O.O
