Friday Funny

Ol' Bay just looks THRILLED doesn't he? Pink overload and some husky dude with chicken elbows bouncing along on him.



Tell ya the truth, the pink dosen't look so bad on this horse, it kind of works for him. I just love his facial expression.

  1. I think Ol Bay needs some groceries! Poor fella!

  2. He's in need of some extra feed to be sure. That saddle doesn't fit at all, and the guy riding in his daughter's saddle isn't helping. But I guess when you buy your entire matching tack set based on color, fit isn't the most important thing to you.

  3. I am surprised a guy would allow a picture to be snapped of him riding in pink tack!

    I agree, that horse needs some weight and that saddle looks like its sitting a bit low, no wonder he has that expression if he's in pain.

  4. And when the horse pulls a sudden move dumping the rider as they deserve- of course the horse will get the blame, have the snot run out of them and probably be whipped and spurred beyond belief for reacting to a poorly fitting saddle. Isn't that the way it always goes?

  5. Not sure whether the saddle fits the horse, but it sure as heck doesn't fit the *rider*. (I don't do enough western to visually judge saddle fit).

  6. Strong enough to wear pink... snort

  7. And he probably knows that no matter how loose that rein is now; sooner or later he going to be slammed in the mouth with that bit...

  8. How many western saddles really fit TB's properly, especially if they have not had a chance to develop a topline? I am actually curious... Anyone have a TB they ride western?

  9. Looks like dad was riding his young daughter's horse to warm him up, tune him up, or tire him out before her classes. Poor old horse, looks like one who takes abuse and just keeps doing as he's told.

    theres a TB at my barn thats off the track, my friend has him, but my mom rode him for awhile. no saddle fits him, hes so narrow (partly cause hes still gaining weight) but he has to have 2 thick western pads on him, ridden western for now until he fills out to get an english saddle

  11. I have given you a 'Beautiful Blogger' Award :o) http://talismanfarmsporthorses.blogspot.com/2010/03/i-won-blogging-award.html

    Perhaps the owner of the pink tack should invest his money in some tucker for this dear bay boy rather than in the hideous pink tack!

  14. There's lots of TB pony horses at the racetrack wearing western saddles, so there's plenty saddles around. In my area, all the western saddles are for QHs and the english saddles are for breeds with withers. It was hard to find a good used English saddle for my QH.
    Just thinking...Australian stock saddles (from Australia) are likely to fit a TB, because the Oz stock horses have a lot of TB heritage. (I've never used one but they look very sensible for trail riding.)

  15. I noticed how loose that near rein is but that bit still looks engaged. It almost looks like it's being pulled on the near side but there's absolutely no contact on that rein. Poor baby.

  16. That horse is giving Bubba cancer with his mind.

  17. It was impossible to find a western saddle for my TB, ever western that I tried on him always rested right on his super high withers. Ended up getting him an aussie saddle for trail riding. Finding an english saddle for him was a bit of a challenge too since most of the horses around here are QHs so there are a lot of collegiates and HDRs at the tack shops.

  18. Sarah - glad to hear about the Aussie trail saddle for the TB.
