Well, the little fart will be turning two in 60 days, still a little dink of a pony. Don't have much faith that he'll grow enough to keep as a personal riding pony. Need to start up on his training again, see what he remembers of lunging from his testicle having days, then learn ground driving. He's fine with people over/above him, random saddles flung onto him, surgincle done up and such. I don't anticipate any real issues with accepting a rider, maybe some issues agreeing with what a rider wants, lol. Maybe teach him to cart as well, that will give him more uses than just a companion. No kids here, so will have to either trust strangers to offsite lease him to or maybe just go ahead and find him a new home. Not sure what I should do about that, keep going back and forth.
Anywho, some random recent pics of the dingus. =)

His head finally outgrew his old sparkle halter! Can finally use the neon pink one, that matches my others, on him.

Worked with him a little to see where we were and he remembers everything and even did better than before. Smart ponies that mull over things are the best.

Just two times trying out everything, leading w/turns, backing, moving shoulder then hip over. After that, same thing on lunge, walk with stop in each direction twice, then moving onto trotting.

His turns, after stopping at the walk, were good, but cue the confusion after trotting, lol. He wanted to stop or go after his friends during lunging, so I had him continue around again until he stopped that silliness, 1-2 extra laps. His stops are great though.

During lunging, when we wind up off to the side, I walk where I need to go at his flank, kinda like a middle ground to ground driving I guess, lol. He knows how to do that, easy peasy. I won't add actual ground driving until he stops trying to follow his buddies away.

Okay, pics won't post right. =/

2 weeks left until he is two!
Got some more pics to share, since I take pics like a loon. =D

He's gonna be a shorty... =/
Guess I'll have to decide if I want to put him on lease or outright rehome him after being green broke to cart and/or riding.

Should probably finish, he is 2 now.
Still causing me heck and using up my money like crazy. Worst klutz ever. Four others combined didn't have nearly the same amount of issues thus far, and 2 were also growing babies and one a loon! =/

Anywho......2yr pic
