    Did you look at that saddle? Looks like a miserable fit.

    Blessing on you for all your guidance.

    You're a great friend to helping them through this, even if it is more for the horse's sake. Good luck!

    I'm glad that you are there to give advice, and help out where you can, and kudos to them for being willing to listen to you, and take your advice instead of putting on airs that they know what they are doing, and you don't, so no advice thank you. He seems like a sweet natured horse, has a good eye, and I agree that he looks like a strawberry roan, if you look at his face, and the coloring right next to the white which is definitely darker than a palomino, even a dark one, would have. By two years old, he should have dropped, so I would check on it when you go out, because sometimes I know they aren't easily felt, and you can think that there's nothing there when there is. Not being experienced horse people, they may have just missed it, or not even felt around, and just assumed that because they aren't obvious, that he hasn't dropped. Maybe you could go to a tack store with them, and show them what type of bit they should get, as well as a better fitting saddle pad, and make sure that they don't end up with something else they shouldn't use on the horse. He's a cute horse, and I think that he'll turn into a very nice riding horse, if he keeps his really sweet disposition.

    Thanks guys, for the support in this... i'm still frustrated, because I know that i'm also not going to be able to get down there and help them as much as I'd like because I also have my three horses to work with... A seventeen year old to slowly get back into work, a coming three year old to slowly start working with again, and I'm having to build back my five year old's muscle and stamina for this summer... Etc...

    I mentioned that the saddle and pad don't fit well, but I dunno if they're going to do anything about it... They might, and they might not.... I'll keep mentioning it, though.

    Might be worth mentioning that bit is awful, and suggesting a snaffle instead.
