    Does anyone know how to look up scores? He apparently competed at recognized shows, I believe in eventing. I tried looking him up on centerline(is that just for dressage or eventing too) but didn't see him (she said he showed under the name makers Mark) she has his usef or usdf papers which I'll get when I pick him up

    About to head off to work, but wanted to post that Mark is home! We got in about 11:30 last night so I'm exhausted today, but he settled in right away, Bella was more worked up about the whole thing then he was :rolleyez: Mares. Here's the 2 pics I took last night. I'll have more updates later!

    Poor horses have only been getting a few hours of turn out this week because the rain has been absolutely terrible, but Mark doesn't seem to mind too much. He needs some work on ground manners, I can't blame him for that being he's used to being out 24/7 and this is a new environment for him. I wish the rain would stop long enough for my ring to dry up enough to ride! Here's a few pics of him in his pasture today. He's currently in a field by himself since Bella clearly isn't being welcoming. Eventually he'll go out with my old guy and the donkey in the big pasture 24/7 but we need to fix some of the fence, there's some boards down and posts leaning, my guys don't jump so its not an issue(there's a section that I can step over :rolleyes::rofl:, but Mark I'm sure could jump that easily should he decide to leave, so we're going to be replacing a good amount of fencing before he goes out with them lol

    Took Mark for a walk today to take him to explore the property and work on his ground manners. He did excellent, we just worked on not walking ahead of me and stopping when I stop and a little bit of backing up. He's so much more level headed then Bella about seeing the sights . I can't wait for the rain to stop long enough for the ring to dry up so I can start riding him!
