    Winter has just draaaaagged on! Not too much to report as I literally have nothing left to work on with Flash other than actually riding, which I'm holding out til spring when he turns 3!

    I have sat on him a handful of times, with no reaction whatsoever. I've been hibernating for the majority of winter so when I do get out to the barn, I usually tack him up and let him free lunge in the arena. I've been changing it up from saddle, naked or surcingle and playing around with different pressure points from pole rope and different hook ups with the rope and side reins. Everything had been fairly loose as I don't expect him to have his head to chest by any means, moreso get him used to feeling different things.

    It's been so cold that my poor pup (Maverick) has been going crazy with lack of excercise so I've been lunging the two of them together! They grew up together so even though Maverick likes to run right up Flash's bum, it doesn't phase him at all :p

    Yep he has a giant white spot on his belly!
    He has a couple strange markings, also has a white spot on his right stifle and a tiny spot on his left side by his hip.

    I LOVE that the two of the get along so well, they used to run the fence back and forth together and play at the old barn lol. they're both almost the same age and got them both right when they left momma so they've grown up together. I'll dig up a cute video I have of maverick trying to get Flash to play with the jolly ball... for now here's the best belly pic I could find of Flash (short of a couple I snapped during his gelding procedure lol)

    Found the video I was looking for, here's poor Maverick trying to get Flash to throw his ball for him...


    And I promise after this I will keep it all horsey again, but I watched this one I made last year about Maverick growing up and just laughed at how much of a goof he is. Although there is a snippet of Flash at the very end!


    Love going through old videos, especially since Flash has changed SO much over the last couple years!

    Nothing else to update unfortunately, but I have started a countdown... 3 months and 4 days until Flash turns 3 and I can finally start riding!!!:cheerleader::cheerleader::cheerleader::charge::charge::charge:
