Elan is out of Ellison, a TB/Hanoverian mare and by Wow, an Oldenburg stallion. We have prepped Elan for breaking. He has been lunged in full tack and I have sat on him at the mounting block quite a few times. He has no problem with any of it. He is very quiet and well behaved.
The mud ball!
Just to show you his size. I am 5'5".
Do visit his other pages and see what he looked like when he was a youngster. He is finally growing out of the awkwardness.
