Pro photos from 2/1 schooling hunter show (Paddy pic spam!)

The pro photographer who was taking pictures at the 2/1 schooling hunter show posted her pics online. Apparently she thought Paddy was super cute, because like half of the pics are of him. Anyway, here they are, with bonus snarky commentary:

I should get bonus style points for the coat flip. Paddy should get bonus style points 'cause he's cute.

I have no idea what I'm doing with my upper body in this picture, but it looks really uncomfortable.

Jumping... with a weird twist.

Slightly more normal.

Are you tired of seeing this fence yet? I know I am.

Excellent pic of him cross-cantering after him landing on the right lead. Still trying to figure out why he does this.

You can tell how fast we're going not only by the fact that I'm saying "Hoooo," but also by his most excellent forelock, which does the Fabio hair thing over speeds of mach one-Haffie.

Look, his ears aren't forward!!!

Professional poser.

  2. Love the forelock at mach one Haffie! He is just too cute! I also really love his legs, they are so thick!

    1. The forelock is pretty epic, and he knows how to use it. As for thick legs, that's a lot of hair... but he does have VERY good bone. So good, in fact, that I can't get horse boots to fit around his legs. Ack.

    1. I won't tell him you said that, since he's on a diet and the "cream puff" comment would probably make him binge eat. Poor starved Haffie.

  11. Paddy needs to be a model for Dover Saddlery; their sales would increase by 50 percent at the least. He is just unbelievably adorable!

  12. I am just catching up - I love the Fabio look even if you are pulling in a freight train! You two are looking good together.
