Good old Rusty got to play pony ride for us today. My sister asked me to ride him. I think she wants to make sure he gets ridden even though she's not feeling well.

Here he is ready to ride:

Then my mom wanted to ride:

Then my dad wanted to ride:
So we got to see how he does with three different riding styles. He's a pretty tolerant guy. The only complaints I have are that he doesn't like his mouth messed with and he's a little herdbound. Nothing terrible, you just have to remind him which way he's supposed to be going. Small stuff, really. He's a good, good horse.

The poor old guy needs his teeth done really bad, so I'll be making him an appointment ASAP. It's painful to watch him eat.

That's it for today. Hopefully I'll get to ride my own horse tomorrow.

He looks so good and sweet - how nice to find a great horse like this! Glad he's going to get his teeth done - his mouth issues might improve after that.
