Hard to believe he was underweight when I bought him a year ago!
He is OBESE now! (his diet only consists of short irrigated pasture and some hay. Looks like he needs a dirt paddock!)
And do you think a saddle fits him?
Not any that I own
and Mike's saddle rolls on him now.
T said I could use a couple of her el-cheapo saddles that seem to fit ok.
Big Haflinger Butt
His tail was BLACK with mud and who knows what else when I started
So a good shampooing worked wonders
He was intent on finding snacks during his "dry time"
I was excited about how well the Orvis Shampoo really worked.
His yellow mane is now fluffy and almost white
Shimmering in the Sunlight...
But only for a moment!
Falcon was second in line
I don't really even want to talk about him!
He lunged well,
I put a saddle on him
I strapped my helmet to his saddle
I tried to walk him away
He tried to bolt
Went in to a slight rear/buck
C walked over when I got him settled and got the helmet off
He was ok after that,
But what would he do with me on his back again.
I lunged him into a good sweat with the saddle on
Snacks, apples and a shower for him
and called it a day!
