More Friesian Pictures

 Okay if you haven't seen yesterday's post, make sure to check it out.  Remember when my best friend and I did a photo shoot on her Friesian mare?

Here is the old post

We did another photo shoot last weekend when I got the pictures in yesterday's post.  You can see where he gets his good looks right??

 I wish she hadn't torn her mane out, but she's still just as gorgeous as her son.  My friend is so lucky to have these two Friesians.  :)

 I took pictures of my best friend too and I think they turned out so awesome.  Here is the one that was everyone's favorite even though it's blurry...

 Everyone liked it because she's sidesaddle in a normal western saddle (it's not a sidesaddle) in a dress, barefoot at a canter.... she makes me look like a kindergarten rider hehe. Let me know if you want to see her other pictures.  I don't think she'll mind me posting them, but I'll ask her to be sure.

Do you remember?

 First a quick update on Chrome.  He is doing well, not limping anymore.  My silence hasn't been because of him.  I've just been VERY busy with the newest member of the family.  You have to meet him!  I just did a post on my other blog here!

Now how many of you remember the Friesian colt that belongs to my best friend who stayed at my house for a while last year?  Here are a couple of pictures to jog your memory.

And my favorite below.

You can see the post here ( He was thin because he was going through a growth spurt.  It also turns out he had teeth problems, but she got him all fixed back up.  Now check out what he looks like a year later at three years old......


  I hadn't seen him in a long time and was blown away by how much he's grown and filled out.

For comparison...

Wow, what a difference a year makes!

 I also got to sit on him!!!!

I was only the second person to ever get on him and this was only his forth or fifth time with someone on his back.  She's only been on him a few times for a couple of minutes at a time.  She's going to let him grow until he's four before she really starts him under saddle.  I had so much fun last weekend playing with him and his dam (pictures of her tomorrow).

Quick Update

Chrome was still limping so I had him checked out and he has a mild tendon strain..... luckily it's the extensor tendon in his front leg, so it should heal up with no problem, but it will be a long time before I'm riding him again.  A couple of months at least.  :(  He still doesn't limp at the walk, but it's obvious at the trot.  He doesn't act like he's in pain and even gallops sometimes, although I discourage it.  I'm thinking about putting him on a calming supplement for a little while.  Any suggestions?  I'm so glad it wasn't a flexor tendon....  So the blog is probably going to be quiet for a while longer.  Please send good thoughts and prayers that he heals up quickly and uneventfully.  This has been very stressful and terrifying for me.  He doesn't care.  He just likes all of the attention as always.  :)
