That's great news!

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

todays update: Broke a lead snap while bridling and hit my hand in the process. Now I have a bruised finger. Lunged him under tack. He bolted and kicked maybe 2 times, other than that, he was fine.

Sunday's Update: Got the bridle on him easy and tacked him with my english saddle. Rode him in the indoor arena where he was surpise, really good and not freaking out. Walk/trot, circles and such, he was good. The only thing was the flies were biting. Worked with his ears abit, rubbing his withers while playing with his ears. Sue put the bridle headstall on his ear, and he didn't really mind it at all.
Also, if Murray doesn't work out for me (I think he's just really hard to work with :Stubborn/jerk/bull moose) I can lease out Charity, the OTTB mare I've posted about before.

Any ideas for working with Murray's ears? He's headshy. Merci!

Update: I have been keeping a journal of him, and out of the 2 weeks or so I've had him, roughly he gets 5 stars. But I called his owner and said no. He's a great horse, but currently, I have too much going on and he's abit too much. I have over 5-6 burises on my right side due to him (not on purpose of course, just him being dumb). So I said no, and she said to enjoy him till she can pick him up next Sunday,
