This is a great example of a light palamino Akhal-Teke horse, LLL!  They are a breed from Turkmenistan that are noted for their speed and endurance and for the distinctive metallic sheen of their coat.

Pretty cool!

Went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art today as I had a guest pass. I visited the medieval armor hall and saw 2 changes in the exhibits. The horse models used for the mounted knights now look more accurate as they are close to the conformation of a Friesian or Draft/TB cross and the other was a shaffron designed to look like a dragon's head. As it had the initial H on it, it's hypothesized that it belonged to Henry the Second of France. I also saw a curb bit that was designed with an extension that would have outlined the horse's muzzle with a ring of spikes so that the bit couldn't be grabbed in battle by the enemy thereby dismounting the rider.

Still am not keen on the new indoor footing but it beats riding outside. Rode Ophelia for the first time in 2 weeks indoors along with about 10 others. Had to focus sharply on navigating and watch for a fair sized opening for canters. I try to call where I'm going but some of the other riders seem not be as courteus. No accidents or near misses thankfully!

Susan...I answered you in your discussion. There are a lot of factors that go into that decision. Bottom line--consult your vet.

Does he/she graze in open pasture or kept corralled?

How often should a horse (age 1 and a half) be wormed?

Now I just have to get my hands out of these damned gloves...
