Thanks so much everyone
It's been just about two weeks that I've had him now, and he's settled in wonderfully. I've gotten a couple of rides in already which has been wonderful, and he's already making an 'impression', aka possibly fracturing my big toe.
@tinylily - Oh boy, I don't think I've ever been called that before! :P But thanks, and yes, I'm considering getting it printed and framed.
@smrobs - My thoughts exactly. He's that chunky and he hasn't been in regular work for years!
@Endiku - Oh no, you don't want to do that! I'd have to hunt you down
His colour was actually going to be blue, but once I got that headstall on him (it was from my last horse), I fell in love with it. He now has a matching hay net, and even my emergency vet wrap is lime green.
And now for a few new photos :)
Our first ride <3 I love this photo, even though it looks like I'm hauling on his mouth (I think I was trying to stop him from barging through my camerawoman aka my mother) :/ You can see his wee little snip in it, too.
I took him for a little 'picnic' down the back paddock and went snap happy whilst he munched away.
He really enjoyed his picnic. His paddock before had beautiful long green grass. Here, not so much...
Looking at this one, it seems the throat latch was a bit tight... but it was on the loosest hole!
These are his 'puppy dog eyes'.
Rockin' the fly veil.
Dozeybutt showing off his butt.
He' a weeeee bit long, methinks.
