It is driving me batty! We had planned to send him away to be lightly started at the end of this year (after his 3rd birthday), but seeing as I will be...oh, about 8 months pregnant at that stage....I can't see me doing much riding, particularly not of a greenie!
Well Congrats are in order! How exciting! I rode prego but DH banned me from starting any or riding anything green. It was good for the oldies, had to get my fix & they got no choice about getting in shape lol. I'm sure he will be perfectly happy getting lots of scratches & loves without doing much work.

I actually have a harness and cart here for the little dude. The cart needs some restoring before it is usable though. My old farrier (why do the good ones always retire by the way!?!?) has even offered to break him to harness for me. It sure is a tempting offer and if we have some spare cash laying around I may just take him up on it!
DO IT!! Nippa in a cart would be super cute. I'm sure that the timing has worked out well, nothing lost in the big guy maturing a while longer before he gets started. He is such a handsome boy, and is going to be stunning under saddle I'm sure.
Yep, I'm not fussed by Flirt waiting another 12 months before he is started. Just means that when it does happen I won't be quite so restricted in how often and what I do when riding him. Plus the added bonus of some extra mental maturity.
