    Congratulations! On the name, you know he might be a Jedi Knight. (From Jed to Jedi is not that large of a linguistic leap.) That might give more name choices along the Star Wars theme.

    Here's a new pic of the handsome guy.....

    http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/u...ps038b61da.jpg

    Everyone at the barn has been oohing and aaahing over him and I can see why he was always a barn favorite. He is truly a doll and has been nothing but polite, gentlemanly and well behaved. I love him! I've not been able to hop on him yet as he is missing a shoe (long story) but I cannot wait to! Because he is shoe-less he has been chilling in his stall and only getting handwalked and I am amazed at how composed he has been. New barn, new people, cold weather, no turnout and he's as well mannered as could be.

    I'm super excited about him..... he is more than I could have hoped for!

    I have always liked Gone West horses. Ironic, as I looked up his pedigree after already deciding I would take him!

    Yes, he not only has great looks but really, really nice bloodlines too. So, any luck getting that shoe on? And on hopping on to have the first ride? I sure hope so! Today was absolutely beautiful with temps at 60 F. Unfortunately all the snow has melted to mud and both my boys enjoyed a mud bath!

    No ride yet! We thought he might blow an abscess, so the shoe has been off.... farrier is coming again today, I think he's gonna put it back on.

    Poor fellow! What an introduction to WNY! He's had to hang in his stall the last week due to the foot, which is a bummer, not to mention I've been wrapping and soaking. He has been a *perfect* gentleman. We've been doing a lot of hand walking too and he's been nothing but polite and composed despite the lack of turnout, cold temps, being in a new place, etc.

    Can't wait to get on him!!!!!!

    What a wonderful introduction for both of you.

    Hoping he rides for you as good as he is to live with.
    That to me is very important.
    We can work on riding skills, not so much on inherited good temperament.
    That is what it is.
    You got a gem there.

    Thanks guys! Farrier wants to leave the shoe off until next week... so we have a little more R&R time. He went out in the indoor today and looked pretty good.... gosh he is a cute mover and while he had fun playing, he never lost his composure.

    He seems to recognize my voice already and perks up when I come down the aisle of the barn, which is kinda cute. It is funny how some horses feel familiar right from the get-go. It is not a common thing, there have only been a few in my life like that, but he is one of those. Feels like he's been here a year, instead of a week.

    Anyway I do love him and feeling pretty lucky he came my way!!

    I think he is equally lucky to have found you! Not many new owners would be as patient as you are being.

    YAY Jed, whom we are now calling Jasper, is back to work!

    He has the most lovely trot, he is *super* soft and responsive, clearly has had a lot of nice training and riding. And was extremely composed despite a very hectic ring, and two of the horses had a serious case of the winter sillies. My only regret is that it was not me aboard, have had a rough few days of not feeling well, so a friend offered to pilot since we were all so curious about how he would go! Hoping by Tuesday I will feel well enough to get on him myself.

    It is crazy how this has all worked out! Feeling really thankful. He is like a combo of the best qualities of the horses I've had.... I really, really love him.

    Fantastic! Good things come to those who wait! Not sure I feel about Jasper but it is definitely better than Jed.
