Ros's new matchy matchy set finally arrived in the post. I have to admit, I was not sure about yellow being her colour but I think it suits her pretty well! We are still in the process of getting to know eachother which has been both interesting and enjoyable. I normally hate getting to know a horse, such unknown grounds, but with her I have been enjoying it. I think that she is just a nice little mare to get to know. With easy come, easy go attitude riding her is like a dream. I hope to start jumping her soon and see what she really is made of.
Dusty has been progressing very nicely, for the first few months that I have had him it has been pleasant, do not get me wrong, but we never really clicked. Recently I have been trying new bonding exercises with him and I finally feel like a partnership is building. He is such a great jumper, careful and smart. While everything at the new barn is still getting set up I have not had the opportunity to jump a full course with him but hopefully that can happen soon enough. I actually plan on ordering him some new tack as well, if you have any suggestions for what colour please let me know! I suck at choosing colours for horses, hahah.
And two new faces. I tend to be...well...a bit compulsive. I could not resist these two handsome gentlemen. I have the tendency to fall in love with horses so fast, wonder what my mom would think of me. She was the complete opposite, checking and vetting every horse to the death of us. But anyways, time to introduce.
The sore looking black paint is a 4 year old Irish Sport Horse stallion. His name is Rosco for short, but Deep Line is his show name. His previous owner describe as being; "tough to get to know, but a great jumper". Of course with all my experience, I saw through this but I felt something with this guy. So here we are, a grumpy inexperienced paint who has already tried killing the barn dog and given me plenty of new scars... Let's just hope he rides well?
While the gorgeous grey is called Cornet 39. I am still thinking of a nickname, I want something unique. Anyways, if you can not tell he is not like the demon...I mean horse...standing next to him. He is a 7 year old Dutch Warmblood stallion, who is an amazing jumper. While I have only seen videos of him and have yet to ride him, his scope is on the next level. His jump and attitude may be pleasant, after a bad fall he has lost a lot of his confidence. I hope to bring this back up and start showing him. While Panda (my main competing mount) is down, I have been on the search for something to keep me busy. And yes, I may be taking that a bit too literal, I can not help but see a great future with these horses!
(Can not thank @GatewoodEquestrian enough for these guys <3 Trying so hard to not request another!)
