The lovely love of my life! ♥
 
This is a thread of photos for my amazing, oversized, snuggly, fluffy fur baby.

Oliver Sudden - "Ollie" - is my 14.1hh 2005 paint x Arabian gelding. He's playful, huggable, and really absolutely amazing to work with and just be around. We do a little bit of everything right now! We haven't shown much to date since he's still just a little greener than I'd like, but we've tried our hands at show jumping, hunters, dressage - and as of last weekend, even a little bit of cross country! I've been working with Olls since December 2009. For a year after that, I rode him in all my lessons, and part-leased him over the summer of 2010. Like any other team, we've had our crappy times, and there was one point where I almost gave up on him out of frustration with myself more than him. Thankfully, we worked through it, and on Christmas of 2010, he finally became mine. I love him to the sun and back again x 10, and I wouldn't trade him for the world. ♥

As a reward for reading through all that, now you get to be assaulted with cuteness! Here I've posted a few of my favourite pictures of him. :)

Trying our hand at some cross country - and loving it!

Getting a BIG snuggle and a pat for a 3rd place ribbon out of almost 20 riders! He was pleased with himself, too. ;)

All of these are from some clips of working on the flat at home! :) Lately we've really been focusing on teaching him how to frame and developing his topline & strength. After being in lessons for awhile, he was too used to going around like a giraffe all the time! He's been doing wonderfully though, couldn't be happier with him!

That's an intro to my lovely love! More than likely, some more photos will come! :) Hope you enjoyed!

Thank you! He gets told that he's handsome very often, hehe. ;) It's good for his little pony ego!
