Takala finally got to learn what a real fence could do. The breaking point was when she literally just walked through the fence and came to greet me. We strung a wire across to make the fence hot, but it is really weak. She got shocked twice while I was out there, and considering the strength of the fence and thickness of her hair, she had to lean up against it before she was shocked. But afterwards she was pretty pissed and pinned the blame on Tenakee. But it is about time she learns to stay in the fence, and now she is big enough to react and be mad about it. No pictures at the moment, but I will try to take some when I go back out to feed.

On a lighter note, Takala did very well when I lead them out to the pasture. I halter them both and put a lead on them both, and aside from wanting to switch and walk on the other side of mom a few times, she was very good. They even had to leap over a snow bank to get to the pen, and both did without much hesitation.

Here are some pictures of dear little Takala after I brought them back to the barn. Then a bonus picture of our other Curly, Scarlet, who just got a new hairstyle. (Her hair is trimmed to the length of the shortest patch, but the longest part was a couple feet long at least.) Scarlet is going to a trainer to be trained to drive, so I figured since I am not going to be there to braid and manage her hair I should just cut it. She is in heat and out of site of the boys, so was a little pissed, but was pretty good considering.

Here is a picture of her half-sister, I think they are going to end up very similar, and Jubilee is very thick, and I was hoping Takala was going to be a tad more 'slight' in comparison, but now I'm not sure.

First picture is a more recent one of Jubilee, Takala's half sister, and she is about 10 months old. I don't have many pictures of Takala, but I did go and get to see some cute baby percherons. Both were fillies, about a week old, and soooo cute! The sire to both those foals is the fourth picture, and if I remember correctly he is a son of Pleasant View King. All of the horses were very nice, gentle, and I definitely could appreciate the fact that they weren't tall monsters. Her horses that she showed were all home bred, well looked after, honest horses that could be useful for more than just the show ring. The foals were a bit more standoffish than Takala, but they had the same mentality as 'normal' foals, unlike Takala who is almost too friendly. But they were inquisitive, and the solid black filly kept trying to decide whether she liked people or not, and would creep up real close, reach her nose out, then scamper away. Last picture is another expecting Mother, although she didn't seem to carry her foal in as plain view as Tenakee did.

I'll go and get more pictures of the duo today now that I'll be home most of the day to do so. *Also, depending on how Tenakee is I may try and turn them out with Scarlet, our other Curly. Yesterday they were sniffing noses over the fence and there was no ear pinning or screaming, and baby Takala was right up in there, too, so I think Tenakee might be ready for some more company. Scarlet is very interested in Takala, so I think they'll have some fun if all works out. But then again Scarlet is in heat, so we'll just have to see how things go.

Takala got to explore a whole new pasture today, and boy am I glad that I made the fence right last summer, because it was easy to hook up to the electricity. They enjoyed the little bit of grass, and Takala could really stretch out her legs. I also introduced Scarlet and they got along pretty well after the initial snorting and kicking threats. I didn't get many pictures as my camera battery only lasts a few minutes, but I did snap one of some peaceful grazing. It is a shame, because they were trotting around, tails raised and real pretty looking. Takala just ran hog wild, she hadn't the faintest idea what was going on. I got to go for a fun root canal today, so I'm not at home to keep an eye on them, but things were going well when I left, and I have some extra eyes at home staring at them. I'll try to take more pictures when I get back home. Maybe a video if anything interesting happens while I am near enough to tape it.

Here are the last of pictures from today, more with Scarlet, Takala, and Tenakee. We put a bale in by the other horses, so the Curly women got a little worked up. Then I took Scarlet and put her back in by the other horses, so again with some running. I have to say everyone was pretty well behaved today, and I can say that safely now that it is night and I am not going to lay a hand on them until tomorrow.

In addition to this, earlier today I got the registration pictures for Takala taken. She had to go out alone while mom stood in the arena and watched. She was well mannered for her photo shoot, and later some neighbors came by while I was putting them away, so they got a little bit of attention. And shortly after the charging picture was taken, Takala's breaks didn't work as well as she thought, and she crashed through the fence. After a few seconds she lowered her head and backed herself right back into the pen and walked away without much concern. I can only hope that tomorrow is as nice a day as this one, and things go just as well.

Also, for those hoping and praying for spring to finally come, it must be here! Our chickens laid their first eggs since winter started, and their water was even thawed when I checked on them to give them water! For those who believe that a rodent will tell you when winter ends, then you should certainly believe in the power of chickens, knowers of all. But science doesn't lie, and we had thirteen eggs today.
