On the Tolo front he is doing awesome! He has gone on his first solo walk down the road off the property, worked a little outside in the hay field, and is schooling all 1st level stuff. He is becoming really fun to ride and is a complete different horse already! He is making it really hard to ride Mystic though. I had totally gotten used to Mystic gaits and 'pony' movement. Tolo has really nice effortless more uphill gaits that are really nice and easy to ride so when I get on pony I feel all discombobulated. They really are complete opposites under saddle!
Since he is doing so good I am listing him for lease (with option to buy that way I can monitor who he is going to better) now. I really dont have time/energy/money to do both these boys justice and Mystic is my priority. Alanna came out tonight and got some video and pictures so I have current ones to post. Even though Tolo isnt costing me as much as Mystic it is just that much more money being taken away from showing pony. And of course all the shows I want to do are hundreds of dollars (sadly we will most likely not be able to do another 3 day this year...) and I really have my eye on doing our first recognized dressage show in October, the last one of the season! Really hoping to make it happen :)
