Video of the new horse

Recommended Posts

I gave the Jag a bath today for a really long time. Will do it again in a few days just to keep him used to the idea. Trainer is going to start riding him soon. My trainer and I are having issues with our two geldings acting like study fools so I took mine away from his favorite mare today. He was not happy but he was pawing and rearing at the hitching post whenever she would yell to him and figured it would be best to break the bond for now. He is in the hot walker pen for now, but he will be moved tonight when one of the training horses goes home.

Is the video upside down for anyone else?  lol  I think he's gorgeous.  Very shiny and fluid when he moves.

Here is Jag after a ride with the trainer. He is doing very well. We got feet trimmed today. He has ticklish legs. Front and back. He kicks at flies when they land on him and when the farrier lightly touched his legs he pulls them up really fast. Even the back legs. Doesn't kick but if I had not told the farrier he probably would have thought he was about to get throttled.

TL,   Jag is nice put together horse, & his looks should even get better as he fills out more.   Pest Wishes. PD

Very cute! Does he have any white on his face?

I had a mustang that was sensitive to things touching his legs & belly. I'd flick the end of the lead rope (or lunge line) around his legs & tap his belly with it, while letting him graze. He eventually got used to it & was much less reactive to bugs, people, etc, touching him there.

Best of luck with him!

He does have a small patch of white on his face. 

Big boy is taking a short break. Went out to ride but when I found him he looked pretty darn miserable. Since we had the flood the mosquitos have been atrocious. I can't even take my kids outside to play. So instead I took him up and gave him a nice long cool bath and some more fly spray. I think I will get him a mesh fly blanket too. I always check his back for sore spots and sure enough the right lower back is sore. Going to have him adjusted on Friday. Gave him a gentle massage in the area but he seemed almost too uncomfortable for that even. So a little bit of rest and an adjustment is in order.

Got an update from the trainer. Big guy has just started loping the pattern.  She is really excited with hiw well he is doing. She also takes him out on the trails twice a week and he enjoys it very much. Goes through water without hesitation and doesn't spook at all. He has not been doing is goofy sideways jig at all since i last posted about it. He has great work ethic and seems to enjoy and trust people very much. All things I like to hear.
