Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

"Mom, get my good side!"

I only snapped a few photos from last night, but they all look alike!
I guess he thinks this is his good side.

Handsome...
Handsome again...
Oh wait..no, he's still handsome...

Laz did very well, walking on loose line and staying calm.  We did a road walk which he seemed to gimp a little at, so I may throw his boots back on him for our next road walk (if it's dry and hard) to get him thru more comfortably.  I talked to Hugging Cliff and he said "sure" and keeps encouraging that he will get better (LOVE that!!!).  We were joined with BO "C" and Ellie, and another boarder and her pretty buckskin Scotty for a nice trail walk.  When we got back, we all worked on desensitizing and playing in the arena.

And some fun VIDEOS:
Laz is very much like his human Dad, quite athletic and sporty!!!

Ellie and Laz had a fun time together and they seem to give each other confidence and can 'speak' to each other to encourage good behavior.  It's so fun!

This was from the other day, after he rolled in the sand and hopped up with some energy.  I gave him the choice to 'lunge' and buck and run but as you will see, he didn't want to do that.  I assumed he was going to race around like a maniac but he was totally the opposite. Calm and sweet baby face instead....YES!
