Nice bareback ride today

12 03 2010

Rode Picasso bareback today. He was great except for one spook. We were walking by some paddocks when the horses in the paddocks spooked at Picasso. He wasn’t aware they were there and scooted away. Goofy boy. Couple of pictures. The second one shows a classic Picasso evasion.

So handsome! And so clean!

I love a roached mane. I keep thinking about doing it but my friends at the barn think it would be an awful thing to subject Phoenix too because all the other horses would laugh. HMPF.

I like it when a roached mane grows out and just STARTS to flop over because it reminds me of weanlings. XD

Picasso’s mane is classic lipizzan… thin and short. When it’s fully grown out, it only ever got to be about 8 inches long and flopped all over the place. It was annoying and frankly he carries the roach quite well. My thought is it will grow back. You should try it on Phoenix! Never know! Could look great!

I have roached Phoenix’s mane before, that’s how I know it makes him look “so youthful!” 😉
