    Default Inky Dinky is home!

    What a cutie he is - he walked right on my trailer yesterday and was so easy to transport - didn't even know he was back there. It was a very windy ride home too.
    Lots of excitement with the other horses - he is out today with my other two - they are getting along well - the usual establishment of pecking order. I had to get them out they were stir crazy in the barn and throwing such fits I really needed to get them outside and get rid of their pent-up energy.
    Now they are all just standing around enjoying the sun.
    I have the week off, farrier coming tomorrow and all bets are on as to how long before I hop on him.
    Here are some pics- Inky is the chestnut, Leroy is the palomino (white in winter) and the bay is We Need to Talk (Tessie) my Fingerlakes finest from last year.

    Congrats to 3Mares and Inky Dinky for finding each other. He was my fav FL guy this year, and I'm so happy he's found a good home!

    Can't wait for the 'first ride' post! Make sure you take lots of pics!

    Congrats!!! He looks sweet!

    I just got done riding my Finger Lakes TB on the roads around the neighborhood for about an hour. At one point, he stepped on a clear soda bottle that was on the road and that I did not see. Made a lot of noise and gave me a mini heart attack... but Devil's Whip didn't even flinch or break stride!!! What a good boy he is!

    Hope you have many fantastic rides with your new boy.

    Um, Leroy looks like the devil in disguise. What a cute expression.

    I am late to this but YAY for the Dinkster! I love the pix. Leroy (that name is extremely humorous for a horse) does look like he is "plotting."

    Dinky look so peaceful and happy. Thank you so much for taking him. And yes, you must post when you do ride him.

    I rode my Mountaineer mare yesterday - also up the road and then around a cow farm. She likes to stand and stare at the cows. She doesn't know quite what to make of them yet.
