Different horse thing aside, make sure you are able to handle the youngling as they are. Unless you ride with a trainer every ride or have the experience yourself greenies can really test your patience and drain the joy out of riding if you're over horses. Not saying you are. Just speaking from experience with my Palomino Cougar. Got him at 3 and was WAY over horses. We learned together, but it was not always an enjoyable process. I've had him five years and have learned so much because of him, but if I had to go back I would've gotten something different.

Hahah, iride, my mother taught me that song when I was 3 - I went through my childhood thinking it was a nice, innocent kiddo song. A few years later when I rediscovered it through a MPFC obsession I finally learned the truth...haha!

And now, the men of the Second Armored Division with their famous close-order swanning about.

I agree re: not same horse. My palomino has a white sock and no matter how dirty he is you can still see the white sock. That aside, get the vet check and have a farrier look at his hooves.The front ones seem awfully long and wierd.

Good luck!

I'm closing this thread since nothing new can be learned. The OP hasn't been back since she started the thread and I guess we'll never know how it turned out.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
