I'm not sure of the best way to cure the nibbles. I usually say "No" in a stern voice and push their nose away, not really hard or anything, but enough that it's a message that this is not acceptable behaviour. I don't know if that's the best way, but it's generally what I've done in the past.

I love the picture of her rearing and that Tenakee is taking absolutely no notice. You can tell she's had a foal or two before!

Nothing too fabulous, just snapped a few pictures while they were in their stall. She has started to shed a bunch on her face, and now I can see her cute little blaze underneath her massive fuzz. For Takala's sake I hope the weather gets better; even though she gets a romp in the arena at least once a day I don't think that is enough running for the little gal. I'm seriously considering taking a torch to the ice that has our sliding door locked into the ground! This weather is enough to make a person wild. Plus Tenakee likes to stand out in the rain and get dirty, it's in her blood.

She is just too cute! It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but what colour does she have coming in under the baby fur? Is it just a darker version of what she currently has, or is it different?

I think it is just a darker shade, but I'm not entirely certain. I'm thinking she'll end up lighter than that. Just one of those 'wait and see' things. In the first picture I attached you can see the color better.

I was really surprised, too! She pretty much skipped that dainty foal stage and filled out into some serious pony. I have some pictures of her full brother, and it is very obvious they are related. I just hope Takala has a bit more feminine of a build than he does. He's such a moose! But she may have just gotten the moose gene, because Tenakee definitely isn't going to be the one to pass down a delicate head.

In the nursing close-up, it sure looks like her mane is starting to curl! She gets prettier with every pic!

Her mane has always been the curliest part of her. Her brother is straight haired and looked to have a curly mane when he was younger. I'm hoping for more of a wave on her coat. You never know with Curlies, sometimes they surprise you!
