I hope everyone here is doing well. Life has been crazy but good for me. I got a new horse in October 2012!! His name is Rory and he's a 4 year old Thoroughbred. When I got him, he'd been out to pasture for about a year and a half, and he was green broke. I've been training him myself, (with the guidance of my trainer Lindsay). He's such a sweet, goofy little thing. I'm planning on training him to be a jumper. This is him: [link]
He is registered with the Jockey Club, and his registered name is "Kentucky Kowboy". I'm calling him Rory though. He's a grandson of Seattle Slew! This is his breeding. [link]
So far, he's been doing very well, Princess absolutely loves him, and Lucy tolerates him. He's very smart and eager to please. His training is coming along nicely. His gaits are wonderful to ride. He has such a smooth canter. I'm hopelessly attached. He makes me laugh on a daily basis. He just has to lick everything he sees, including my face and hair.
If anyone is interested in following my photography, I post it on Facebook now. [link]
