The pony that I adopted 4 years ago through a thread here on COTH his now all grown up and back into work. His name is Flash (Here Comes Trouble), a 5yro welsh/haffie/paint-ish cross?? We really have no idea actually. After being out on a lease since October, he has now come to my new barn to be used in their camp and lessons for the summer.

He seems to have forgotten some manners over the winter, so hes in a bit of a bootcamp at the moment. Yesterday, one of the little kiddies got up on him to kick his little butt for me:D

So here it goes!
trotting and through the puddles he didn't want to go through with me onboard

canter pony weee

jumping :D

and here are a few from yesterday with the little girl

and the chunky little monkey himself

Thanks for looking. Feel free to critique him. I know his conformation flaws, hehe, especially his neck, if you can even call that sausage link a neck:lol: Hes such a good soul though, just needs some reminders on what's allowed. Im so proud of him for how hes turned out. He isn't the prettiest, but he's good enough to have a home for life with us.

ETA: if you are in the critiquing mood, id love some comments on this large I am in charge of. He's been a pasture pet until a month ago. He used to be a pony jumper, and is only 10 this year. He is really soft and supple to your leg, but he has trouble relaxing. This is him about 3 weeks under saddle again.

Flash is hilarious -- oh, that neck! :eek: But what a cute jump he has. The last picture, well, I'm cleaning up the monitor...

yes that neck is something isnt it?!? his crest is almost wider than his neck is long!! But he sure manages to use himself nicely over fences. I did not expect him to turn out that way!
