Gotta love rockstar parental units who take in their loser college grad spawn -__-
As most of you know I have been obessively counting down to the day I could go get Bacardi and it finally arrived on Thursday morning! I had to take my brother back to Cincinnati and then turned right around and drove all the way to Akron. A little over 4 hours..
My body had not yet recovered from the previous 10 hour drive so my day was powered by RedBull.
I was finally going to meet my boy in person! SO EXCITED.
When I arrived his old owner introduced me and we took some awkward pics together ( I am the LEAST photogenic person alive) before I hopped on and rode him.
WHICH BY THE WAY HE IS A DREAM COME TRUE.
For a baby, he sure is a gem.
B was a little hyped up about all the commotion but still gave me some relaxing work at the trot and canter.
He's very inconsistent in the contact but is always forward and his natural gaits are on point. Can't beat that!!
Then we posed some more awkwardly
And then I wrapped him, and posed some more
By the way this beast needs SOME WORK on trailering. HOOBOY.
|Lol those humans. I'm not gettin on that thing.|
He settled right in with Yankee and they are now lovers. And I am the happiest girl on the PLANET.
The second he got home I chopped a solid 5 inches of straggles off that tail and now its WONDERFUL AND THICK. You know me and tails. It will be long and beautiful. IT WILL. He also needs some major groceries.
|YEAH HORSE EAT ALL THE FOOD|
The next day I took him out and lunged him because you just have to play with new toys and he seemed very relaxed and settled already.
I was blown away again by this big boy. L did such a great job starting him. Red man will go places in the dressage ring. That REACH DOH.
And then today my friend Chris came over to hack with me and the greatest picture to ever be taken ever was caputured...
My boys! I could die I'm so happy!
