Meet Grub

Im being paid to ride this guy over the next few months, so i thought i'd introduce him.
His name is 'grub' Reg. Australian Stock horse. 6 yrs, 15.2hh, entire.
Hasnt had alot of work, been ridden a bit, mainly inconsistently. At the moment he's only being ridden a handful of times each year.

So, i started this thread just to document everything, mainly fill it with photos

He is actually Shad's (see left) half brother. cool huh?!

So here are some older photos of him, starting from yearling-ish to a bit older.









And some i took over the past 2 days, keep in mind he's out of shape. Not being ridden at all.







Hopefully ill get some undersaddle pics soon

Oh he's lovely. Just the type I like - Substantial but not too bulky and a good neck-set. Though he has huuuuge shoulders!

Whats his name and breeding? Are you going to show him?

"Sandy Bar Shadow"
Ive been told Rivoli ray and Abbey. I havnt actually looked him up, should do that now!
He'd won a fair bit when he was younger, though he's been doing nothing now! As for the showing, im not sure. I'd like to take him to our branch show, though ill be overseas later this year so it depends what date they choose.

Nice - He's got sme Glen Lee breeding in there on his top side and back to Rivoli Ray.

He goes back to Abbey a few generations back on his bottom side.

He has a 3yo colt on the ground as well.

Nice looking boy, and still very young! You lucky girl, getting paid to ride him :]

Ive been told his colt is going well, headed for the nationals next year. Dont know alot about him though, as i dont know the owners. I should try to get a photo of him, would be good to see!

Lucky i know :) He's no problem to work with so far, a puppy dog really

Yeah, if im not working that night ill go have a look. Probs wont know till about thursday though.
I think i read somewhere theres a Sandy Bar horse nominated for the futurity. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

....

Ive ridden grub about 5 times now, he is soo lazy!!
Though yesterday he went really well, much more foward than he has been and starting to bend more and become softer. I thought it would take longer, so im pretty happy.
He's quite unfit, im riding him for about 30 mins each time, which includes a 5min walk at warm up and cool down, and another walk halfway through each ride.
oh, he chews everything! It think its just an impatient bored thing. Ill tie him, to a gate usually, and he'll chew his lead rope, run his teeth along the metal gate, chew on the fence post. There was a solar lamp on a post, apparently that was edible too and has since been taken away. My shirt, when im cleaning out his feet, will either be chewed or he'll just rest his nose on my back. Perhaps he thinks he's being helpful
