New horse I am working with.

Hey all.
I am now working with a new horse. Here is some not that great pics and some history on the horse.

He is 1/2 Lusitano and 1/2 Hanovarian. He is 4 yrs old and green. His owner has had him and another gelding same age since they were babies so they are quite stuck to one another.
They both live in the pasture with my gelding Tiny.

I started working with hi and decided to sell or give away my mare "Candi". Long story there.

Anyway. He is pleasant but has a bad habbit of calling out to his buddy when they are seperated, but it seems to be getting better every time he is out and busy.

His owner has agreed to not list him for sale while I work with him and see if I like him. Even if I dont purchase she has agreed to give me some time to get him going. I pay for nothing other than any lesson I take on him, which I have two scheduled for next week. This keeps me busy and riding and allows me to return to my faavorite dicipline of Dressage

He has never been in cross ties until yesterday which he was a totaly cool about. Stood like a total gentleman.

First time I handled him he was quite a pistol. He hasn't had much one on one for a while. The owner rides her other gelding a few times a week but rarely does anything with the other. Maybe once or twice a month.
He was a total jerk off about his feet which need trimmed and will get done on Monday. He was kicky and jerky with them. After a few days working with this issue it is 80% better!

I have now ridden the horse two times and he is nice and forward, stops very nicely. The fisrt time on he was pissy about the leg pressure and bending but was better the second ride. He will reach for contact nicely when focused but needs work... thus the lessons next week.

Well here are a few pics of him and I can try to get video today or more pics but cannot promise anything.

The first 2 pics are from September 5 2010
the 3 pic is from August 28 2010
and the last was a few days ago...not the best pic but he got all nervous when I went to get the camera.
Enjoy

Hold the phone, I have some catching up to do! I sure hope I can chat with you and get an update!
He sure is cute, and needs to replace some fat with muscle, but it sounds like you quite like him already, even given that you have your work cut out for you :)
Keep me posted on your decision!

Beautiful!
 
Just wanted to say what a beautiful horse! I'm new here, so am not qualified for any advice, but couldn't help but notice his beauty. I've never seen a horse with such a thick neck like that. Is that due to his breed?
