New horses arrive

We went over and picked up Areutrue and decided to also bring London Lullaby home with us as well. It seems like there are a lot of people shopping for horses right now so I thought I would try to sell a few here while the weather is still decent.

Areutrue is absolutely as sweet and sensible as they get. I pulled his mane, clipped his whiskers and ears and he stood there sleeping. I didn’t get any pics/video of him yet because he got a bath and some treatment for his rain rot. He’s a gorgeous horse and a really cute mover.

Today we set up our free jump chute and had some fun playing with the horses. First up was London Lullaby. He’s a really very nicely bred 3yr who is lightly raced. He’s 15.3 h but obviously still growing and filling out. He has a really awesome personality and is quite brave. He had never seen a jump before but was really game which I appreciate. He’s a lovely mover and so light on his feet. I think he’s going to be a super star. Can’t wait to get on him.

Letterman remembered free jumping and thought he was just going to fly around and have himself a blast. I interrupted his antics with some random poles placed going into the jump chute. I imagine this is why the people who do all the warmblood approvals hand walk them into the chute!

I have a client’s horse who has done a lot of eventing and he acted like he had been free jumped before. He needed a bigger fence to make him pay attention but was pretty cool.

I really think the horses enjoy being able to free jump. I was amazed how much Letterman remembered and how brave he was. Now he just has to slow his brain down a bit and think about his feet. I was trying to make him add up the footwork the last few times in the video with some extra poles. He’s nowhere near that aggressive to the jumps when I ride him! I almost wish he was.

Lullaby got a bath when he was done and a rain rot treatment as well.

Looks like warm weather the next few days. I’m looking forward to getting on the new horses.
