He's coming along nicely! Certainly is gorgeous! I'd LOVE to see some pics of him jumping! He sounds like he enjoys it!

He sure does sound so sweet. Im glad he really is going to fit in. I wish my barn owner would just let them work it out the way you did. If a horse looks at another with a snarky expression...into the 'bad boy field' they go. I hate that!

He may be younger. Poor little guy. Im sure he will get what he needs with you though. Im glad that he is fitting in. I could sit and watch horses play all day! What does your little boy think of him?

I think the shot we need is him standing next to Claymore. Just for size reference! LOL

8/13/10 - Nearly 2 months!

Been a while since I updated this thread because, to be honest, I haven't been doing a lot to Monty other then just letting him eat up and grow new feet lately. I'm relatively certain at this point he is only a 2 year old rather than the 3 years I was told, so have ceased riding him for the time being. I'll give him over the winter to grow and fill out a bit more and start working with him more next spring.

But he is still getting handled and bitted and worked with, in the meantime, and I decided to take some pictures for an update on here while I was giving him a spray down (which he now loves, turns his butt into the spray to make sure you get it). He's going through a growth spurt - he's shot up almost two inches in the not quite 2 months he's been here and is just BARELY shy of 14 HH now.

Wow...he looks like a different horse! He's not only getting taller, he's filling out too! He looks like he is still built on stilts right now! He needs to lend rosie some of those legs! I never noticed the detail of his blaze. How cute!

And those ears! Look how tiny they are! Glad he is coming along well! He may just get tall enough!

Just an update to this thread with a link to Monty's injury:

Thread posted c/o Amarea

Monty got a bad ouchie :(

We know for a fact the injury had to occur within a 2 hour window from when I was out with the horses riding, at 4 pm, until Amanda showed up at 6 pm, and since the injury didn't begin to swell until after we were all sitting around waiting on the vet to show up, I'm inclined to think it happened somewhere between 5:30-6 pm Friday evening. The vet finally got there at 8:30 pm.

However it appears to be healing well, thankfully, and on the good news side we also have confirmation now that he is in fact a 3 year old, coming 4, so his papers are accurate and once he heals from this injury, we will begin riding him again in earnest and putting more miles on him.

Monty's stiches are out, and he is healing VERY well. Keeping fingers crossed that he will heal with no scar. He was turned back out in the pasture after being stalled during the duration of his recovery (with hand walks) and boy was he happy to explode into the pasture bucking and farting and tearing the place up!

The vet officially pronounced him finally at a good healthy weight, perhaps even a touch chubby and hay-bellied. He still looks too slim to me, but I'm used to my big fat draft crosses, and Monty is built on a narrow, arab-like frame so he will always look slim in comparison.

Also trimmed his feet again the day before yesterday and I wish I had gotten pictures. His feet are now PERFECT. Beautiful, completely healthy little feet. And he no longer fights and rears at ALL to have them trimmed, he stands quietly and calmly to have them done. I'm still surprised they have gotten strong and healthy so quickly, where Freyja and Claymore's hoof rehab is so much slower going, but I guess it makes sense - Monty's only hoof issue was neglect. He didn't have anything else going on, or any other "problems" with his feet. I'll try to get some updated pictures of him today!
