Yup he's here!!

Right off the bat we had a little training session that the concrete was ok and not going to kill him haha. Took about 5 minutes of him just standing there like nope and the guy put a ropeover his but pulled once and that was that. Silly boy.

They unhaltered him and I expected atleast one lap around the yard but nope he went straight to eating haha. Totally unfazed by the new surroundings. That is till he heard the neighbors goat where he proceeded to fast trot away whinnying like a girl xD.

He was again unfazed by my 3 dogs sniffing him and my dobe even was daring enough to sniff his privates . Crazy dog he just stood there although I did call her away immediately when I saw her nose up headed that way haha.

Caught him back up led him to the water and completely fly sprayed him now he does have summer itch that they treated and now were just applying a aloe/oatmeal spray to and the hair is growing back anything you guys would suggest besides that?

Well decided to hop on tonight since he wasn't fazed by the new surroundings, dogs racing by his butt or anything else haha. He wasn't fazed by the ride either.

Stuck my snaffle on him and while I had to push a bit for a canter he was great otherwise. I do need to work more on getting him on his butt more but he's waiting for the pull on his face. Then I decided to go for a short walk around the block and again unfazed. He was a little unsure but with a little nudge he was totally fine :). Even dogs racing the fences, cars/big trucks driving by or other horses being ridden. I'm very proud with my choice.

Well today after work I went ahead and met up with a friend I had met on one of the horse sale sites. She lives 2 streets over and also jsut moved out here. We took king and her mare baja out for a nice walk around the block and just talked. It was so nice talking horses with someone who didn't look at me like I was crazy ahah. Kingston did awesome as usual even with the unsually busy streets.

He is so sound minded for his age and how little he's been out. This was his second time out since I got him and our third ride. I'm definitely getting more confident with him and out on the trail nothing seems to bother this guy and if it does all it takes is a nudge and we are off again hah. Even had a little filly come haulin butt up to the fence whinnying and he jsut glanced as baja got a bit prancy and looky. So proud and can't wait to see how this boy turns out :]

Got home somewhat late todaydue to a ribbon cutting at work today. So Got home saddled up and off we went.
It was windy and I pulled him from his friends(neighbors horses were out and at the fence) and he was absolutely chill about it. Found a nice flat road and asked for a canter and then pushed a bit. He's definitely fast but doesn't quite know how to run yet. However he will definitely be a ratey horse, the second I shift my wieght even a teeny bit he's sitting down haha.

He then walked back calm as day home. Practiced stopping off seat and while it takes me slightly picking up the reins he is getting it. Also worked on getting him sitting back on his but and turning( he got a bit wuick walking home) I made him stop back and turn on his haunches and head back the other way about 3 or 4 times. He finally settled back into his normal rythme and we went home :].

SO lucky I chose a good one.
However might have to put shoes on him as our roads out here are awful lots of rocks and while he seems fine he seemed tender footed on rockier parts. When there are no rocks he is absolutely fine, dang rocks.

Ride #4 :)

My boy did awesome again. I rode over to my friend Roberts and talked to him for a bit and long just stood there sleeping. We then rode a few streets over where I let him breeze a bit and then brought him bvk down and walked another few streets and then back home. He's totally level headed. You would not guess he is barely 6. Did some circle work at home and then did our usual untacked/hose off/ feed and water :). Such high hopes for him and hopefully my old farrier can come out, he frequently goes to nv an az I just have to find out where :).

Last night I actually worked him walk trot canter roll backs and circles. Worked on getting him stopping off my seat and barely my reins. He is definitely sensitive to your seat and picks things up quick but was a touch on the lazy side haha. Works well off your leg also :). Found out y old farrier comes through here every week so that search is over now just gotta find a good vet and chiropractor :). He will be spoiled lol
