Introducing...Zip

Tessa's birthday present arrived at the farm today. We were able to find another Mexican Mustang like Jet. He looks like Montero but rides like Jet. Tessa has named him Zip. He's a bit on the ratty side right now and needs some weight and some muscling but he's got huge potential. He's 12 or 13 and rides like there's no tomorrow. Poor boy had a whirlwind day yesterday - he spent Thursday night in the round pen, was hauled 40 miles to a new farm, had a bath (he was gross and smelled bad), and got his horrible shoes pulled and his feet trimmed. He's had shoes on for quite a while. He was hot shoed, 8 nails per foot, and the nails were bent over twice. Poor boy's going to have sore feet for the next day or so but he's got pretty good feet overall and he stood like a saint while I trimmed him. What a good boy!
