Getting Antsy



This is Oberon and we are still waiting for him to be transported to NC.  He is trailering with pregnant mares going to Texas and they decided to wait and hope the heat recedes.  They didn't want to put the mares in any danger of miscarrying.  So, it looks like the plan is next Friday, the 26th.  However, I looked at the forecast and the only difference I see is HOT and thunderstorms...

I could kick myself for not taking more photos of Oberon.  The bottom one looks a little funny as he was taking a step towards me.

I think I have a used saddle already lined up to purchase.  It is a Natural Performer with horn Parelli saddle and comes with a breast color.  I am planning on purchasing their Theraflex pads.  Anyone out there have this saddle? If so, do you love it?

I'd never heard of that saddle before but it looks like a neat idea. I hope you try it so I can read about it. I've fought with saddle fit for Tonka for all of his riding life. Not that I could afford one of those though...

I'm so sorry you're having to wait so long! I can understand their need to wait, but that must be really rough on you.

I know Oberon can't wait to get to you either. What are your plans with him?

Andrea - yes, I'm luck to be offered to purchase a nice used one!

Debi - pony club with my girls (they are new riders) and me relearning the ropes. I haven't ridden for 20+ years. I am really excited to learn english this time around as well. :) Trail riding and possibly, some day trail horse competition. A bit of hill topping next year, I'm hoping. I plan on having lots of FUN! :)

He is a great looking horse. Hope you have a lot of fun with him.
