Toasty might just have one of the easiest, most boring lives that a Thoroughbred has ever lived. He is still quite fit from the track and packing on the pounds like an elephant. I cannot believe how well he carries his weight and am almost dreading the spring for this one. He is only on about a quart of food twice per day (1/2 hay extender and 1/2 a 12:12 pellet) and seems to still be gaining. 

We have lunged once (not sure if I have blogged about that) and he proved to be very bold and totally unphased by anything. I was impressed by his balance and aptitude in picking up both leads and lunging basically voice command. Despite his size he is quite athletic, not that he did anything exciting - he did not - but the way he picked up and carried himself showed a different side to him. I had originally had plans for him to be a hunter (he is so slow and easy going!) but after watching him lunge, eventing might just be in his future. 

Even though he is boring I have lots of photos of him just chilling to share
