    Thanks again everyone for your kind words. I will definitely be updating as soon as he's started under saddle again!

    Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on Java! He has been the easiest horse to restart.

    He got a little over a month to just be a horse, then on Thanksgiving I go on him for the first time, just walked around a bit. I put about 6 rides on him, then he was gelded on Jan 2.

    Today was his third ride back after being off from the gelding. He is so laid back, non spooky, ice/snow falling off the roof and rain/wind, he's so calm and cool! No lunging before rides either.

    He did his first ground poles at the trot today and for fun, I walked him over to the little flower box and he just walked right over it.

    I'll keep everyone updated as long as you guys want to hear!

    There's definitely a look of Zenyatta about him--must be that Medaglia D'Oro.

    Congratulations, and have fun with him!

    Aaawww!!! He seems like such a good citizen! What a sweetie.

    I adore my now 10 yr old TB mare that I got off the track as a 6yr old. They're such awesome horses. Congrats, and have fun with him!

    Thank you everyone! I am very excited about him

    Thank you for all the nice compliments.

    He has always been this laid back and quiet, even when he was still fully intact. He even is pretty quiet in turn out as well. His buddy is another 3yr old OTTB who likes to run and play, and he will just stand there and watch him ha ha

    Not to be nit-picky or anything, but Medaglia D'oro is Rachel Alexandra's sire, not Zenyatta's. Zenyatta's sire is Street Cry.

    Anyways, gorgeous boy!
