winteriron neighbours au bucky is 28 or 29 and tony is 24 or 25, where bucky and tony live next to each other and tony is scared of him. bucky is always grumpy, angry, glaring at everyone. tony thinks bucky is a serial killer. one day he just blurts it out and bucky is very offended. that's how they start talking. later when they start dating steve still can't get over the fact that tony had thought that bucky was an assassin. he still laughs at them because of that. happy ending.

Resting Bitch Face/Bucky will always be one of my top pairings lmao. (Man I had plans for this and then I threw in angst lol I’m a failure.) Look out for under the cut!

Tony was pretty sure his neighbor was a serial killer.

Like, he’d done the proper thing his mother had said to do, introduce himself to his new neighbors (he had a standing offer to have coffee with Bruce anytime), but when he’d knocked on the door of 4D, a man had answered looking ready to commit murder. There had been bags under his eyes and his eyes were red and his hair was a mess. He’d grunted out a terse ‘the fuck do you want’ and Tony had been able to do nothing but squeak. And then the door had been slammed shut in his face.

Which, you know, might have been a little rude; no one looked good first thing in the morning and Tony had clearly blind-sided him. But the guy hadn’t had to slam the door in his face. He had planned on just nicknaming him ‘Rudy McTrudy’ and moving on with his life.

Except sometimes Rudy McTrudy came home late at night clutching his left hand with a towel that was stained with blood.

Tony nicknamed him ‘Murder Guy’ instead.

how did you get Milo to get SO THICK ??? he looks so great

I don’t really know completely what happened because he got a lot bigger than he was expected to be but when he was younger, I took him for a lot of walks off property, up and down hills, across hills, light lunging and then he was always out somewhere with room to move/run when he was turned out. He’s also had free choice hay and (sometimes) grass so always gets to graze. 

On the ground, I did lots of carrot stretches in the beginning (much less so now), and then back raises and rump raises. 

Then under saddle, we pretty much religiously did some sort of light pole work all throughout his 3y/o year when he was ridden and transitions, bending work and just getting him to relax under saddle. We also did lots of hacking mostly at the walk. Started doing raised poles and making pole exercises harder.

As he’s gotten more mature, he does jumping like 1-2x a week unless he’s showing. Mostly grid work and we also do pole work with raised poles a lot and have started to do a lot more canter work over poles. He also now has more of a concept of proper carriage (thanks to the poles, transitions, hills and lateral work along with our stretching exercises)

He also lives outside 24/7 with Archie and has always been with a friend for the last year, so it means he’s moving around a fair amount either running and playing or grazing with his head down. 

He always has hay at our barn, it’s just a regular local grass hay 1st cut. Then theres some grass and he gets a lot more of that as the weather is nicer (which is when he tends to get TOO fat). He doesn’t get much grain just a very basic maintenance grain called Rocky Crunch with some fibremax and a little bit of oats and barley. The only supplements he gets are flax and biotin and I’m pulling him off the biotin soon.

We also occasionally try to do cross training on tracks where he gets to trot for long distances and work up to longer canter sets and then SOME  “breezing” (he is not fast and does not understand fast so think extended canter haha I haven’t been able to get him to actually open up) which is good for him and still hack when the weather is nicer or do small hills (on a really small hill on property).

He’s lost muscle recently though due to the crappy weather but I think he keeps himself fairly well balanced on his own and then the basic flat work we do along with hacking, poles, some jumping and other exercises he has just blossomed into a large bean
