    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!

    Its Bella's halter and lead (which is why the halter is a bit too big, his TB head is a lot smaller then her TB head lol), almost all her stuff is purple, I was trying to think what color would be good for him, it can't be blue because that was Legacy's color , I have a lemeiux peacock pad that I was going to see how that looked on him. My hubby says purple is too girly, although I'm considering it anyway lol
