And a very good boy he was too. Of course he'd been out once before when we moved yards, but that was only over the motorway bridge and then up a virtually empty road, so not quite the same as going round surburbia!





After all that work...





Bless him. Went out with a friends mare, though he didn't need nannying at any point...wasn't spooky - walked out lovely, had a trot, went past building work, lorries, other horses, down the main high street, past all the shops, motorbikes, etc. Was quite busy out today!

He'll be very quiet at least when we get back to work after the holidays back at works yard with virtually not much traffic around!

Wow, he is striking with 2 wall eyes.
What a well behaved boy you have, think my boy would love walking around town. Except peoples pockets would get mugged for mints!
The pics are lovely.

Thanks! I know his eyes are to taste, but I love them personally. I love them having blue crescents in them and then the rest half black :)


I love him to bits. I can't wait to get started on him very lightly next year.

:D

Little quick crap video.

He's so sweet and willing - a bit shy tetchy around anyone but me I'm finding out [other people fussing him he can't quite cope with, but will let me bear hug him randomly with not a flinch or worry lol! Can do pretty much anything with him. I put tack on him for the first time last week, can half lean over his back, leave him tied wherever....he doesn't care bless him. If ever he's worried, he just climbs in my hood and hides and everyone jokes saying he's going 'Mummyyyyyyy!!!!'. LOL. Bless him.

He LOVES to jump too. [I'm not pushing him to jump obviously, but he just does it on his own! Leave him out in the paddock with poles or jumps up, and he'll be cantering round popping over them constantly! Wierdo haha.]

Only halter broke him a couple of months ago , but he's just been so sweet it's so easy to forget that all this should actually be 'new' to him lol! Only issues I've had with him, is getting him to allow himselfto be caught....which he's now absolutely fine with and comes cantering over to call now and literally shoves his head to the leadrope haha!

Is, is, is, that a MOUSTACHE?! SOOO CUTEEE.

He's really sweet with his baby blue eyes too, what a gem.
He does indeed have a moustache lol! His favourite trick now is getting it sopping wet and caked in the gruesomest substance and giving you a 'moustache wiggle kiss'.

Ahhhh! I love blue eyed boys ;) Congrats to him for being so calm, also lovin the shineyness of his headcollar :D
Haha I saw that headcollar and was like, that has Spark's name written all over it!
