Talking 21 is the new 12--IMG heavy

Guess who turns 21 today? If you guessed Junior, you are correct! I am happy to say that he is looking better than ever and is still acting like he is 12 years old. Junior has been through quite a lot in his life, but has always been a fighter and is such a wonderful boy. When he came to me, he was thin, hairy and depressed. My mom and I weren't sure if he would pull through, but after hours of grooming and special care, he was healthy and looking great. Junior has always been a fighter and no matter what happens to him, he always pulls through. This last winter we tried to sell him to a trail home, which went bad. He came back to us thin, his feet were horrible again, and he was depressed. But within a month, he was pretty much better and was happy again. Within two months he was looking great and was back into a good amount of work. Aubre, who was riding him from June '08 until the beginning of this year, did a very good job riding him and Junior always had fun. Aubre has now moved onto more challenging horses that are younger and have more energy. So now Iím "stuck" with the big love bug and I couldn't be happier. We are slowly getting back into the swing of things with each other and it is great. We have even done some jumping, which has been great!! We are hoping to show this summer which I think will be a lot of fun. Junior is the best horse who always tries. He puts up with crap riding, he puts up with people doing back flips off of him, he puts up with all of the kissing and hugs. It makes me tear up just thinking about how blessed I am to have this horse. I love him.

Anyways, enough of that, letís get on to pictures!!

About a 1-2 weeks after I got him.

Probably early June, not sure.

About 2-3 months after rescue, Aubre jumping him for the second time.

Spring '09, starting to do really good.

Spring '09. Good day, Aubre fell off twice due to Junior being hyper (long story).

Early summer '09 (I think) after a two month break.

Summer '09. First show at this place, they did really well.

Early '10 (I think) after coming back from the "trail home".

About a month and half after coming back, my first ride on him in a very long time.

My first bareback ride on him in a very long time. 4/15/10

My second real ride on him since he came back from the "trail home"

No show sheen. 5/15/10

After a good ride, we were happy. :)

So happy birthday Junior; I love you so much honey.

You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
