Talking My new Edition! meet Karlos

Well, it was a bit sudden but it was love! ♥♥♥♥

Meet Karlos, he is a bay 16.3-17hh TB gelding who raced for about 6-7yrs but has been sitting in a paddock for the last 2 yrs at one of my friends houses. I went on a HUGE ride on him last weekend did everything! Didnt bat an eyelid with Fire trucks,cars,milk trucks,trains,plains ect. Even rabbits running through his legs! It was a 8 hour ride with gallops through wheat feilds swimming across ****s horses going a little spaz and he took it all in his stride! On the spot I begged if I could buy him. I havnt had that much fun riding a horse in a group for avery long time! He is quite pretty underneath in his own sort of way and has big,flowing strides and has potential to be a nice show hack for me. Who knows I might try and event him as he has a MASSIVE scopey jump. He is realy rusty on flat work and balance, flexion and leads ect but he seems to really enjoy learning. He is a bit dumb though His race name was Katarl, I kind of like it as its nique so im sticking with that for his show name. Now time for photos! I know I is underweight and have gone and baught fatty food for him! And am swimming him alot to get his bum muscles growing.. I am really looking foward to persuing with him.♥

He's gorgeous!
Why was such a great horse sitting in a paddock for 2 years doing nothing?
Good luck with him. Looking forward to more photos of this guy

Beautiful horse! :) Doesn't look underweight at all though.
Do you mean lacking in muscle tone perhaps?

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

He is beautiful! I don't think he looks underweight either--the TB's often look lean without being underweight.

CONGRATS!!!!!

I think he looks pretty darn good! His butt is rounded out and you can't see any ribs. I think you just need to get his muscle tone built up. Very pretty boy though!!

Sorry it took a bit to get back, have been very busy with him.. =D He is very talented (in my eyes) He was a little underweight for what I am used to and he is a future show hack and they are fat!! hehe. He deffinatley was lacking in topeline though! He sat in the paddock as the boy just didnt really get along with him, a few showjumpers really liked him though. Now for the good part photos!! (there is alot) & my riding isnt great, i'm not worried what it looks like right now..So exuse that =)
