In the minds of many this would make you the perfect age to start work under saddle, but I can see that you are still too awkward in your growth to handle the stresses of my weight in addition to your exercises. You're still so clumsy! But we will work on things and see how you are on a month by month basis. Perhaps you will be sat upon (okay, seriously, I really just wanted an excuse to say "sat upon") sometime before Christmas...
You've come a LONG way from that super awkward little guy I rescue-adopted at the end of January. You've gained hundreds of pounds and have grown a hand or two. Your feet are in much better shape - literally they were clover-esque before! Your feet are also hard, hard, hard; very well-developed growth going on down there! Your heels are a little bit higher than I would like, but we will bring them down, no worries.

I'm just happy you're a healthy horse with lots of friends and space to run. No more being locked in a dark barn without food or water and only getting hand-walked to eat once a day for an hour or two! You've come a long way, little horse. And if I have it my way you're only going to get better - we've got some LD and endurance in our futures!
