Weight is not as important as how well a person rides. A skinny feather weight person can do more harm to a horse than a heaver person who knows how to ride. Why is it we as females always feel were to heavy when men never think of that. I know of many many men who weigh that amount and ride everything and anything that's a horse. No one even gives them a second glance. Even in all the old westerns. John Wayne, James Arness, Dan Blocker, Loren Green, Smiley Burnett, Oh the list can go on and on. Just keep up the ridding and adopting . I have had 2 horses I bought and 2 adopted they all have a special place in my heart. If I could afford the board for another I would adopt again.

He's coming at the end in the week and I can't believe how excited I am. I'm in my late thirties and it feels like the week before Christmas when I was a child. My husband and I are building a shelter....a horseport(?) off our stand alone garage to get him out if the weather. I have a large barn but it only has four draft stalls and the rest is tackroom and cart storage. So...he needs a place for shelter so he can be outside. The rescue said TBs don't always like to be stalled even in bad weather... so he's getting a grassy run and cover instead.


Thanks for all the well wishes!

Just wanted to say congrats and I know what rescue your talking about because I got a 5yo 16.3h OTTB gelding from them a couple years back. He looks just like your boy and is the sweetest guy in the world. I got my boy when they were known under a different name but I give them updates on him still.

Okay, he's been here since Sunday. I've been having a ball with him. He was pretty much everything they advertised. They even took a video of him being introduced to my herd. I'm not sure how to post a video up on here... but... here's some pictures.











Sorry the grass is so dead here. The rescue doesn't want me riding him or really bothering him too much for two weeks so he can get settled in. Right now we are just doing a lot of ground work and manners. But he's really amazing. He loves water, which is weird since all the other girls do not.

Anyhow.. thanks for letting me share! I'll post some of me riding him when he gets all settled in.

Centaurheart -- Just saw your video; it was fun to watch - I could have watched more! I'm glad you took him and I hope you two work out for each other.
