Fuzzy Wuzzy Wasn't Fuzzy Wuz He? lol, it's Hylke the Friesian
 
The other day temps were above zero so I took advantage of it. Yesterday actually. Went and snapped some photos of Hylke trotting around and then saddled up for a bit.


Haha, I'm as long as two horses!

That's Kit, a QH mare on the left and that big butt is Eric. Hylke was tossed out in the Gen Pop. http://www.horsegroomingsupplies.com...ilies/wink.gif

Eric is wondering what all the hubbub is about.

Ice on his whiskers and a stick he held onto for dear life.

I am proud to report after a few weeks of riding him for short amounts of time almost daily I no longer feel like I'm going to fall right out when he trots. HURRAY!


So that's all I got.

We had a nice ride that afternoon. Got five whole "Spanish walk" steps out of him with both legs before he forgot everything. LOL!

Wow, he is fuzzy, isn't he?? I LOVE the photo of Eric saying "poo to you, stoopid. Pennies aren't scary."
Hylke and Eric are looking good, as always :D Great photos!

Hylke looks fabulous but I just can't get over how amazing Eric looks. I remember when you first got him and the story that accompanied his homecoming...made me cry a little! To see him filled out so much and even just the expression on his face - he KNOWS he's home.

Any time I see Eric I always think of the first photo I took of him once he was home.

He has come SO so far. I adore him.

Lovely.
Ive never ridden a fresian, I know they arent know to gait per see, but he must have a very different movement, just looking at the trot photos. I guess they just pick up their feet/ float more?

ShutUpJoe 01-06-2010 11:59 AM

I'm so jealous!

It's a very huge movement. You have to learn how to post for sure. I've cheated for so long by riding gaited horses. It's not smooth in the least but their canter is real nice!

Gorgeous! I don't think I've ever seen a Friesian quite so fluffy!

KaylaOscer1994 01-08-2010 08:31 AM

He looks heaps pretty! annd the pic of him trotting is pretty too! i LOLED so hard when i saw the picture of one of your horses with his tounge pocked out!

QHDragon 01-08-2010 09:45 AM

Wow, good job on Eric! He doesn't even look like the same horse!

Your friesian is beautiful. I know what you mean about the trot, when I first got my TB I was use to my QHs smooth had to work to post trot, when I first got on my TB I couldn't post more than a few strides before I felt like I was going to fall out of the saddle!
