Off to new home

A few weeks ago, Phelps left us to become a lesson horse for a friend in Washington state. I think he'll do great and I look forward to updates about him, which I will post.

He's very sweet

I'm on a mission to get the weight on this boy. He is by himself for the most part, eating his grain and alfalfa and grass and...whatever I can get him to eat. He's in a large pasture by himself most of the time, so he isn't harassed about food, but can be nose to nose with the other horses when he wants to be.

He leaves his fly mask on. He likes the Cashel with pre made forelock hole the best. No ears, thank you very much. Still doesn't like fly spray, but getting better.
Really a sweet, sweet horse. Kali and Les are still working with him, but we're in a bit of changing situation so they don't work with him as often as they used to, but that will pick back up, hopefully, in a few weeks.

Ground training

Phelps is getting worked with a couple of times a week with Les and/or Kali. He seems to enjoy it. He tries everything and really wants to do a good job.

New photos

I know he used to be a racehorse, but wow, is he fast! I don't think he even had enough room to really open up.

No real training yet. I just pull him out to groom and mess with once in a while. After we get Shelby and Dani going strong, I'll have Kali start working with Phelps and see if he'll be as sweet to ride as he is on the ground.

Photos from today.

Nothing going on

It's cold and wet and Phelps is a pasture ornament.

Our trainer is working with Shelby and Dani most of the time right now, but I hope to get her started on Phelps in the next month. He's still a goofy, good boy.

Gaining...I think.

Pre-snow. October or November most likely. I need new photos of him!
