Talking Ever Seen Horses So Full Of Themselves.

Sooooo I wanted to ride on Monday and I went to get TC (the big brown horse) and Zippy (the paint with the blanket) being his baby self chomped Tbirds butt and started a "stampede" so needless to say I never caught TC but I did get a chance to ride Max (BIG brown and white paint) He hasn't been ridden in a few months because he foundered. So I was able to get on him....I have video of me riding him but I'm putting that in the critique section soon. But what do you guys think of his trot?

yeah I love when they just act like horses....I was standing there just watching them then I was like "Oh! I have my video camera." And poor Poppy the older black horse (he's like 30ish) in the tannish blanket...he wanted to keep up so bad but he has arthritis and ring bone in both front legs.

That's good that he was trying though! How fun! I love when we can let them out in the big pasture and watch them just kick up their heels and run!

Yeah now that he's gained weight he's got a TON of energy....at my old barn he seemed to be wasting away and they kept putting it into my head that it was because of his age. I'm glad I moved him now he runs around and acts like a dork and gets the food and the smount of food he needs. =D Makes me happy seeing him run around like this knowing he's happy and healthy.

Haha the one in the middle was just standing there at one point looking at everyone like they were crazy kids ;)

Love it!

Phantom looks really good and has good movement. What sort of riding do you do with him? I bet when he sheds out (which I hate! White hair on everything. I used to ride a white horse ) he looks pretty sharp.

Eliz - haha yeah that's Poppy (his name is also Phantom but we just call him poppy so we don't have to say white phantom and black phantom.)

Tinyliny- We do western gaming....he's really not built for it and was never really "trained" for it but he has so much fun doing it...always eager to go int eh rin and he'll run his heart out for me. His turns may not be the best like everyone else's horses at my shows but I wouldn't change a thing about him...I'd rather have a horse who takes care of me and loves me than a horse that's going to make a split second turn around a barrel. Our fastest barrel time is a 26 and I cried my eyes out when we got it...everyone was looking at me like I was weird because the "normal" barrel times at my shows are between 18 and 21 seconds.

Here's an idea of our riding (the brown horse is TC my "move up" horse)
