|Smile everyone! Okay, Stoney, you just keep eating.|
When we bought Stoney as a greenie two-year-old, he had pretty good proportions. But, as he grew, it was mostly his back that kept getting longer and longer, while his poor legs didn’t grow to match. As a result, he’s a longback paint who always had trouble with collection movements in dressage but can jump spreads like they’re nothin’. Also, the elongated back has come in handy the more kids we have. I think the record so far has been six atop him and he doesn’t bat an eye, as long as there’s some green grass to keep him busy.
And, heaven forbid anyone has a turn without Henry also riding. I think we’ve got another horse-mad child on our hands.
