The new horse arrived shortly after lunch. He is RED. No white. The seller offered to come back another time and ride him if I felt hesitant. He is a bit forward on the ground but listens and acts like he will get over it. Not in good rig, but thin, not skinny. No name yet. The other two didn't attempt to break down the adjoining walls so that is a plus.
I was worried he might not like our water but I went back over around seven and he was out of water and still eating. He was in a group setting at the dealer's and acts like he may not have gotten all of the hay he wanted. So, I watered up and hayed up and all seems well. Came back over and repaired the blanket I got for him. It was clean, used, a weatherbetta, and only needed a metal piece to receive the belly strap...I had one and tried my yard sale sewing machine...not thrilled with the machine, but it worked and that is the main thing. Cal was disappointed that I had put a dirty blanket on him. At least he has one on.
Not as pretty as Whisper, but he has the longest forelock I have ever had on a horse of mine. Long mane, too. Need to work on his dredlocks.
the new boy.
