Team Estrogen !!

I thought the girls should have their own thread...

Things have been progressing at the (normal) snail's pace! Today, they BOTH got hooked to the sled!!!
These sisters have the most amazing work ethic. In Germany, their sire's breed is often used for pulling competitions, and it shows in them. They will be kind of silly about some little thing, but put a little weight to them, and they really become business-like. They just dig in, and pull. Uphill, down hill, like they have been doing it for months.

I am thinking about putting them in the pair harness, strapping them together at the collar and breeching, and ground driving them as a pair. I have never done this before. I always just hooked them with an tolerant mate, and started slowly, but these mares will probably never be driven single after the first few hook-ups.

This is Adrianna.

I will get pictures with the sled next time....I cannot manage a horse, lines AND a camera at the same time as pulling the sled the first time. I know, I'm a slacker...

I worked today on the mother of Team Estrogen, Alaska. It is a bit of a refresher course, because she has driving training that I have NEVER seen. SOOooo, better safe than sorry.

I hooked the tires on her, and she was perfectly calm, so I will do the drag next time, and see how she reacts.
