    I have a puppy dog horse! [​IMG]

    I've been lunging Bear a couple of times a week to keep him in shape until we are riding more regularly... and he has such a cute little canter! He knows his business with the lunging.. all I have to do is give him a little slack and and kiss at him and he gets right to it [​IMG] he was obviously trained to mostly do the slow canter on the line, I've read this helps build their topline. I have gotten him to gait and walk too.. with patience [​IMG]

    So, last week I took him to the paddock to lunge... and after a little bit I let him in and took his halter off... then I turned and walked away. He came right up behind me... followed me through the whole paddock dogging my steps [​IMG] When I stopped, he stopped... the only time he got distracted was for the tantalizing scent of other-horse-poo [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Having a puppy dog horse is wonderful!! Except when you want to take pictures of him [​IMG] I couldn't get him far enough away to take a good picture, so mom and I played hot potato with the camera, her on the other side of the fence and me running around trying to get enough distance between me and his Highness (I do NOT like to be in photos) [​IMG]

    Some of these are worse quality than the others... and most aren't perfectly posed photos... but I think Bear Bear is beautiful no matter how much of his head is in the shot [​IMG] [​IMG]

    **ETA: Oops! Sorry, the pictures got too big and I can't fix them [​IMG] **

    Bear is a Paso Fino [​IMG]

    I would say I know how you feel, after 10 years off before I got my Bear boy last month, but I don't, since he is a Paso after all [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've always wondered how a Paso gait was to ride... [​IMG]

    he's beautiful.

    Sounds like he does to you what horse whisperer TRY to get horses to do to them. Something about them treating you like another horse/their mother. If they do it they're supposed to be very trainable because they 'care' about what you want them to do, rather than trying to avoid/ignore you.

    You got a good horse there! [​IMG]
