A good day

Shea and Fame

Definitely a good day 🙂  Had my first ride on Fame and was very pleased!  He’s very quiet and other than a bit of head tossing that I think may be tooth related he was almost lazy.  Not as reactive (sensitive) as Paris or Bridget but very willing once he understood what I was asking him.  He almost rides like a drafty.  Our only bad moment came at mounting when he became a little alarmed that I was standing so high above him, but he settled right down and actually stood quietly without being held when I mounted.  He’s just such a sweet mannered boy!  He’s got great ground manners (ground ties too!)  and is a very pleasant horse to groom and fuss over as he just stands there and enjoys the attention.  At one point I was sitting on the smaller mounting block waiting on Julie to finish getting Crane ready.  I had a hold of Fame’s reins and he stood quietly beside me, occasionally nosing around my helmet acting like an old schoolmaster instead of a recently retired race horse.

He’s awesome.

I love him.

And yes Baxter is jealous.

    There you are! Nice to finally see you. You and Fame look great. I’m glad that he is turning out to be such a good boy.

    May you and yours have the Merriest of Christmases (if you celebrate Christmas, that is). And, my the New Year be blessed with many happy rides on all of your new buddies.

    Yep, that’s me… Fame is definitely turning out to be a sweet boy! And the rest of the horses are doing pretty awesome too.

    Hope that you have a warm and merry Christmas and a happy New Year too! Hope Santa Claws is good to the kitties 🙂
