    He's home!
    Meshed right back in with his girls as if he never left.

    Tape measure say's he's now about 800 pounds! Poo....
    Also, I think I am not measuring his height right, since it showed 13h and not 13.2h....uh-oh...

    Got to ride the trainers super mare, very light, easy and quick to respond. Mare has a crazy back story, but the happiest ending. I've never ridden a horse doing anything but walking, trotting and turning while moving forward. So when I got to ride this mare and trainer told me how to get her to do this n that, it was the neatest thing ever!! Rollback turns, backing nicely, perfect stop, side passing, spinning, moving up to the wall, etc, all with the slightest leg and/or with a hint of rein. I was super jealous! But have an additional goal for my boy, to be just like that mare in ability and responsiveness!

    Also, sat in her hard western saddle. Which, months ago, before my lessons would of been heck to ride in! But it was no issue today nor on Friday when I rode in it on my gelding. I must of learned how to properly sit or those posting muscles buffered a touch!

    The Hills In your pictures would be a good way to trim him up a little , only downside is your gonna need to walk him up and down them [​IMG]

    Vet gave me cattle fly tags, seem to be working. Too bad the one by his head makes him look like a BLM stang. =( He so is not!

    Lol. I guess I didn't update most forums.

    We bought 26-ish acres.

    We are in the process of redoing the fencing, from 3 lines of rubber at the dangerous road to 6 lines of deadly barbed wire everywhere else.

    There is a magical flat area at the very top, it's wonderful, but I'm nroke, lol, so eventually,I'll have something there.

    My nicknames for him are endless! Lol

    Plan to use the 26 acres as winter grazing for the ewes and horses. And then make hay from it during the growing season.

    Please reconsider the Barbed Wire, As you stated Its "Deadly" and from experience Horses Vs Barbed wire ( Do not mix)

    For cattle yes, But horses , unless you have an electric wire on the inside, Id seriously consider something else. In 2007 when we brought the farm, it was the first thing I did , remove all the barbed wire, which had a dead goat tangled in it from the previous owner.

    Huh?

    Who is that towards?

    Did I somewhere say I would keep it? JW

    We are removing all the barbed wire. There is two sections of fence hidden by brush that we might simply ignore and install our new field fence 10ft from it. No barbed wire will stay up where any animal of mine can reach it.

    Even with a hot wire, barbed wire isn't safe. Plus, my dogs and sheep would get out if that's all I used. Making it 100% worthless on top of being deadly.

    I got tired of messing with the bit and him hating it when I asked anything with it, so tonight, I put the jumphack back on his old headstall and away we went!

    He turned much more nicely without the bit.

    Video would of been of the whole ride, but I left the wrong memory card in it.... =( So it only got a tiny part to the little yard. I had to lay over, but not on, his mane to get under the cable, he's getting pretty good at moving off when I do this. I don't press his neck and try to only bend at the waist.

    We turned and started back down, but the minis got in our way. So we turned at the cable and went back into the little yard and did a very, very nice 180 turn! [​IMG] A little leg and a finger light pull and off he turned like butter! Sucks that the camera couldn't get that on tape!!...ah well, always tomorrow.

    Oh, I see where I went wrong, didn't finish the sentence and it's worded a little off, lol. I meant that currently, in the front is rubber fencing and the rest of the fencing is barbed wire. The barbed wire will be replaced by field fencing and the front I will add field fencing to the back of the 3 lines of rubber so it keeps it's nice look.
