Celeste~ Oh that's good. I thought it would take more trims than that. Yay!
TurkishVan~ I meant to tell you--I agree, except that this horse was just standing all day, everyday. The owners who had him before the folks who gave him to us had him standing around all day in a small dry lot with all the brome hay he wanted. Then when the last people got him, he stood around in mushy meadows eating rich, green grass all day. He never had a chance to wear down his own hooves
I doubt thousands of years ago, too, that horses stood around as much as they do now. They were always on the move... unlike MY guy, here! lol
AngieLee~ Thanks! And yes, he does have strong feet. If my Tennessee Walker went half that long without a trim they would be chipped and cracked to death.
Yeah, I like the tack! I'm getting ready to clean it here in a minute, actually. We'll have to see if it fits him after he loses the weight. Not even sure if it fits him now.
aharlov~ I really don't want to hide it, however... my mom does. She likes weird things sometimes. For instance, she doesn't like the way my TWH's forelock goes down into a point at the end. She thinks it looks stringy at the ends. But she doesn't mind people knowing the brand is there; she just doesn't want it exposed in pictures and things. She wouldn't have minded it if there had been a cool symbol or something, but to her it looks like a Kindergartner scribbled on him. LOL!
Really? That would be so neat to know where he came from! I don't have Facebook, but my mom does. I'll have to have her do that for me. I'll look into the titling thing as well. Good to know!!
BarrelRacingArabian~ I know I read up on that sort of bit a long time ago... Doesn't it become a V shape in the horses mouth and the point can hit the roof of the mouth? And with a shank the V can rotate down onto the tongue or something? Is that right?
The previous owner was using the snaffle, but when something broke (not sure what it was that broke), she switched to the curb.
Thank you EquineBovine and Cacowgirl! I will definitely keep y'all posted.
