EZ Rider is a 2003 baby of Rainmaker and Blacie's Blaze.  He was sold as a yearling to a lady and very good friend (I will let her identify herself) in Michigan.  He dominated obstacle courses for a couple of years or so with nearly perfect scores.  He had a throat issue that made him unrideable for a year before it mysteriously cleared up.  He was ridden 2500 or more miles a year in the Rocky Mountain trail stuff.  Some four years ago, I lose track of time, EZ came up with a back injury that made him unrideable, even after much treatment.  My last horse by Rainmaker was still here so I made a deal to bring EZ back to his place of birth and a life of living on pasture as long as possible.  Over time his back injury resolved itself so my granddaughter began riding him when she came to visit once a year.  I was content with that until life reminded me that we are all mortal and I needed to downsize.  That meant getting fewer horses and when I heard about Raylin's desire for a horse for her sons, I contacted her.  EZ is the best kid's horse that I have ever seen, although I haven't see Molly since Kysa started working with her.  In addition to EZ's trail and obstacle accomplishments, he is the 2010 Rocky Mountain horse of the year as decreed by the RMHA.  He also gains weight by looking at grass so Raylin will have keep his feed controlled.

Anyone looking, we are selling our farm at some point in the future to downsize in yard and house.

My first post in a long time but I do check in on occasion.  Rainmaker AKA Jim Stewart

Hi Jim,
It is nice to see you on the board again and it's wonderful that Raylin has a Rainmaker baby.

Good luck with selling the farm and down sizing  I'm doing  a bit of that myself.

yeah EZ is not to happy at the moment since his diet has started.  Slow feed hay nets & not much grain at all. (He does lift his bucket up to remind its empty when I feed Brown.) He give Brown the stink eye since Brown is on an all grain diet now.

Now if the weather warms up we can hit the trails.

Raylin, that is normal for EZ.  He got a half scoop of oats per day and hay down here and about tore up the feed bucket every time I walked in the barn.  His hay went in a rack so he has to eat slower now.  The rascal loves to eat and always puts a guilt trip on you for not feeding him more.  With your care, he might get frustrated but he will have a long and useful life.
