I forget how big he is.
It has been so long since I rode Pokey that sometimes I forget how big he is. I had to let everything on my saddle out about 2 holes from where I rode Dobe (and he's not exactly small, 14.3 and 1050 pounds). My FQHB saddle looks too narrow for him and my breast collar looks small on him.
Anyway, thought I would share some pix of him from our ride today. He hasn't even been caught in about 4 months. Other than one little crow hop the first time I asked for a lope, he did great.
He is an absolute monster and makes my saddle look small. LOL.
WOW, he looks like a tank! hehe
Haha, he moves like one too. He is the most uncomfortable horse to ride in the history of horses.....or riding. He is rough and his body moves a lot side to side at the walk and trot so trotting him for any length of time results in a side ache. LOL. But rope something and he'll drag it. :D
That boy is built!!! I'm so jealous, he's so handsome!
He's gorgeous, but I'm so glad he's not mine. I'm just not a big horse person. I do love his coloring though. My fiance says having a big horse 16+ hand horse just gives more incentive to hang on! I prefer smaller horses so when I do come off the ground isn't so far away!
I want him!! send him over to me lol.
Thank you RoCru, I think he's a handsome boy as well.
PDrifter, he really isn't all that tall, maybe 15.2. It's just that he is so bulky for that height. I bet he easily weighs 1200+ pounds.
RJ, I'm not sure you would like him very much. Even though he is a nice horse, he really isn't all that fun to ride. He's incredibly rough and terribly touchy. And cold backed, did I mention that? LOL. Every day it's like he has never seen a bridle or saddle before and is on borderline freakout until after he is saddled. Glad he's Dad's horse, I probably wouldn't ride him very much.
He is gorgeous!!! I love buckskins!!
14.3hh isn't that big 17hh high like my friends horse is big lol he's a pretty boy
lol, ya im not a fan of the cold back horses. Still a very handsome boy.
