I was thinking
1) Hunter Green
2) Navy (though I don’t like how navy and black look together, and I do want to get a black dressage saddle)
4) Any other colors you all suggest.
Zeus is kind of a liver-y chestnut… a “true sorrel” according to my western friends. Three white feet, blaze, snip… help!

I do not have Kozy anymore.
I had Kozy on a 6 month foster from a local horse rescue. In March, when the foster agreement started, I had the vet come out to do a pre-purchase exam. He diagnosed Kozy with some “arthritic changes” in her hind end, but because she hadn’t been ridden/worked in 9 years, the changes might improve with exercise, diet, and supplementation. Over our six months together, I took her from barely being able to be ridden to being a safe horse with patience and ground manners. However, after weeks of being off and not really rideable, I had the vet back out who said that my efforts in stopping the arthritic changes were unsuccessful. Much to my sadness and heartbreak, my family decided that Kozy was not the right fit.
As soon as I found out about Kozy I started shopping for horses. It just happened to be that the very next day I found Zeus, and had him paid for a little over a week later!
Thanks for the compliment about Zeus! He’s an amazing horse, and everything I want in a horse. I thought I wanted a warmblood…. or at least Kozy. But they don’t breed warmbloods for their brains. And there was a reason Kozy ended up at the rescue and not sold to a cushy warmblood home. She is sweet and tries really hard, but is really spooky and neurotic. Zeus is laid back, loving, cuddly, smart, and really wants to work and learn.
I don’t ever plan on deleting memorialred365 as it is my blog dedicated to the first horse to change my life.
I tried making a blog for Kozy but I never updated it and I didn’t have many followers.
So here’s my question, and I’d love if you’d answer, just so I know what opinions people have:
Would you like for Red’s blog to stay entirely about Red (and I create a new blog for Zeus), or should I update this blog with daily happenings of Zeus and I?
Isn’t there a thing on Tumblr floating around about how to make your own memory foam half pad? I want one but I don’t want to buy an Oglivy because I’m trying to save money and earn money right now. But I think it’s entirely possible to make a memory foam half pad… right?
