    Charm is DISGUSTINGLY fat ... I haven't fed her since late March-ish ... seriously. Can't wait to bring her home to the no-grass-so-you're-on-a-diet ranch!

    There is clover in that pasture and I know some clover can cause a photo-sensitive reaction. Charm had a reaction on her pink nose until most of the clover died back .. I even wondered if that had something to do with the sun/sweat causing those marks. They have ONE shade tree .. it's a NICE shade tree, but they don't spend all day under it and the sun has been brutal.

    Badger also has very clear primitive markings. They aren't so clear now because he is sunbleached, but he has vertical stripes on either side of his whithers that extend almost half way down his shoulder at one point ... and barring on his legs ...

    And he is pretty adorable .. I can't wait to really put some time in with him ...

    I'll discuss pics with Gunnie tonight...

    Kiara .. it was supposed to be a "10" .. but the brand didn't take. The ranch I bought him from brands the birth year on the left cheek.. Gunnie has a 9 .. Badgers would be a 10.

    Ah, thank you for explaining. I have only seen brands on the butt, or on mustangs on the neck sometimes, never the cheek. Learn something new everyday :)

    TG's horses are definitely "in good flesh." They all looks so sweet, I just want to love on them!

    Good luck at the parade, KC! Glad flag training went smoothly.

    Ground drove Cash in his surcingle and snaffle bridle last night and he was really responsive, despite it being 95 and humid and his super sensitive self being COVERED in welts from flies. As I was putting him up at 8:30, they were just starting to feed! Made me even more proud that Cash did so well, considering his dinner was 2 hours later than normal.

    I think I need to hold off on riding anymore until I get a saddle that fits him. My saddle was purchased specifically for a massively wide Paint, and it's just not working on my petite 2 year old. Fiance is not too pleased, since me not having to buy a saddle was a big condition of allowing me to buy a horse :P

    Cyn, have you thought about a saddle with a gullet system? That way you can keep adjusting while he is growing and then get a fitted saddle once he is done growing and filled in, instead of buying new saddles as he changes.

    ETA: You can get a used one too. Cheaper and you won't have to feel bad if it gets banged up a bit with a young horse ;)

    Yeah, I'm looking at used ones. Mainly because I'm a quality ***** and can't imagine riding around in a mediocre saddle rather than a bigger name with known quality in looks & materials *blushing*

    I just have to get over myself, though, since I can't justify big bucks on something he'll likely grow out of within the next two years. Gosh, being practical stinks, lol.

    I know the feeling. We had a friend but an import from theaauction for $100 so we could have something to start the youngster in. I ended up using it on my mare for a little while. It was very plain but very comfy and fit her well. She's filled out alot more and I can use my good barrel saddle on her now with no problems. One of my friends in thw barn is using it now and loves it, so does her horse!
