the stallion

Been meaning to put this up for ages. First pic is the stallion a month ago and the second picture is of him a few days after he arrived from the wild. These days he looks even better. Actually looking like a horse rather than a clothes rack.

Today he even did a little jumping. Just being lunged over a few knee high jumps. it was his first time doing more than trot poles, and he didn't bat an eyelid. just popping sweetly over them. it continues to surprise me just how easy these horses are. i think for me, it is quicker to take a horse from the wild and train it, than it is to take a normal horse and retrain into a good riding horse.
