    Today, I fitted the pair harness to the fillies. Then, this evening, I put bridles on them and the pair lines, and ground drove them together for the first time.

    DH is going to put the pole on the fore cart so I can hitch them to that first. That exercise is a couple of weeks down the road yet.

    I thought they did really well for the first time! Hopefully next time, I will get a picture.

    He is 14.1, and weighs 1400 lbs.

    Alaska is 14 hh, and weighs 700 soaking wet.

    The fillies range from 13.3 to 14, and from about 800 to 950 lbs. They got hair genes, but not to that extreme!!

    Today, I picked up a couple of work collars so that I can start them on the forecart.
    . My other pair carriages have suspended poles, so I use breast collars. Tomorrow will be another harness fitting day. Hopefully, I can get DH to take some pictures.

    Southern Grace, Rondo lives in Waxahachie!

    Hmm, I was in Waxahachie yesterday! I have never heard of a Schwarzwalder Fuchs, here google, google. Goodness he is a looker though.

    Back at it.....

    Since May, I have not done much driving (of any of the horses). Both of the fillies have been broken to the saddle, and I have been riding Alaska a good bit.

    This weekend, I hitched each of the fillies to the drag, and even put Mary on to add weight. They were both SUPER, and walked and trotted with no hesitance.

    I sold the forecart, and I am going to get a double tree for the sled, and hitch Gavotte with them, then go straight to the carriage.

    Here they are, Gavotte and Adagio....8 years of planning and work! Adagio is in the open bridle.
