Photo Crazy ... mostly of Red
 
Okay, I've been asked for photos of Red, as I've posted a few of Shotgun. And here are some!

Disclaimer: LOTS of pictures.


The day I went to look at Red and purchase him in May.

First ride at my parents, when I brought him home.

About a month or so later, in the barn getting ready to go riding.

Starting him on the barrels (and then going off the barrels to work on some more training-type issues).

And we're attempting to grow a thicker, longer tail, all bagged up and conditioned. (Now that the flies have froze away)

SMILE! Have a good day!

Oh and of course, Shotgun got in there too. I don't have as many pictures of him yet though. At least ones I haven't already posted! (More pictures of Shotgun here! http://www.horseforum.com/barrel-rac...hotgun-138723/ )

Red is so pretty! How tall is he? :)

beau159 10-11-2012 04:06 PM

He was just a hair under 15.2 hands when I measured him.

My yearling (Shotgun) is gaining on him quick! I haven't measured him but he's gotta be at around 14.3+ hands now. He's gonna be a BIG boy!

.....

Is Red seriously taller than Ruger? o.O Ruger is only 15hh. Wow....

beau159 10-15-2012 10:56 AM

LOL, and I'm actually wishing Red was taller!! I was so used to my big Beau (just under 16.1 hands) and his long stride. So I am hoping Shotgun grows!!

SorrelHorse 10-15-2012 06:44 PM

You think yours is short strided, try Selena! :rofl: 13.3hh of pure choppy, back-breaking gaits. :rofl:

I really like Red.. I mean reeeally.. He has such a cute face and he's built pretty well.. muscles.. Love him!

beau159 10-18-2012 05:45 PM

Thanks Drum! And he is so in-your-face too! A complete personable horse.

His thick, muscle build drew me in to buy him. :-) However, he has gotten called fat more than once, because he does not have a sucked-up belly. He certainly could have toned up more, but he's not fat! Just how he is built. (Although yes he was very fat when I bought him. Never been in shape before either!)

To be fair, here's more of Shotgun!
 
Took a few more photos of Shotgun yesterday morning.
