She's not fat! She just has big.. stomach bones? (I'm wondering how long the 'big boned' excuse might work.) I think a common trait of Curlies are they have a little bit more fiber to their being.. and it certainly starts young.

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

SHE IS ADORABLE!

Since we don't know exactly what the sire/dam genetics are besides their obvious phenotypes (sire=dunskin, dam=chestnut) these are possible outcomes for the filly . . . My best guess is red dun:

Well, Takala may have her Daddy's good looks, but she certainly got sass from her Ma! They got about an hour of supervised turnout today while I cleaned their stall, and since the second I got them outside they decided actually burning off all that piss and vinegar was over-rated and just sat around eating. In light of this I grabbed a lunge whip and asked for a little bit of motion. Tenakee lunges decent when on a lunge line but without it she always managed to get 'stuck' by the gate. Tenakee likes to give me one lap of strong trot, then stop by the gate again. When I would ask her to go she'd rear up, making for a few good pictures. Since she didn't lunge into my space or act aggressively I just asked her to go. Only once did I actually touch her with the whip, and that was when she turned her big behind on me. She was plenty far a way where no matter hard she tried she wouldn't have nicked me, but I had to remind her that her booty was big enough and she didn't need to get it closer for me to see it.

After Tenakee would throw a tantrum, she'd look at me with puppy-dog eyes and wait for my next move. Tenakee has wonderful movement and a big trot, and she'd trot half the arena, then turn and stop with a huge snort and blow. It is wonderful to watch her when she is trotting around, tail up, head up, ears forward, and nostrils flared.

Tenakee was so fascinating that I hardly noticed Takala was there! I'm sure when she's bigger she'll have presence like her Mama.

She is filling out so much! I only have this one picture taken from my phone, but I promise with spring break coming up I hope to get plenty more to make up for it. It got pretty cold again, so I have been staying out of the weather and haven't meddled with the duo for a while. We did a bit of refreshing today, and when she is in a willing mood she leads very well, but if she isn't into complying then it takes a little bit to persuade her. She did get a bit rambunctious whilst running about, and got a touch on the butt with a lead rope when she decided her boots were for kicking. That was about enough to convince her for the day, and the adventure ended with a trip back to the stall. I was proud of her as I only had a hand on her halter and she walked with me good. She really responds to release of pressure, and will start licking right after she learns something. I usually have to work with older horses until they are comfortable opening up to me, but Takala sure is open with her emotions.

Wow she is getting big! And Tenakee and her are such stunners
