The condition of the footing of our arena is considerably better, so I lunged Tenakee a little bit. It was mostly walk/trot, and I think Takala got most of the exercise. Takala ran around like a goon! And I could tell it wasn't because I was lunging Tenakee, because she wasn't scared or worried, just bucking and farting and turning until I was done working with Tenakee and did a little work with her. She was drenched, and you could see the sweat drip off of her. I actually had to be quite vigilant while she was running around, because she was definitely testing my boundaries. I had a carrot stick with me and when she would get her bootie too close she'd get a pop on the hinder. She got the idea after a few times, and soon she was kept her kicking to the other side of the arena. Despite her little devil running around the arena, Tenakee was very good. Our only problem was her stopping and facing me without being asked, but today since I was watching for Takala my signals to Tenakee were pretty mixed. She was very enduring.

Got some pictures, from TODAY even! They aren't the best, but maybe that is a good thing since Takala is quite the piglet. Since the horses are moved into a different paddock and I'm fixing their other pasture, I let Takala and Tenakee out in the pen while I was mucking around. Takala has never been in a pasture so big, and really stretched out her legs! If it wasn't supposed to snow tonight, I would have started keeping them out there today. It is still a muck hole, but I think what is important for Takala is having enough room to really get going. She does have quite a bit of space to trot around in their other pen, but this would be a big step up. If the weather shapes up, the both of them will get a nice new enclosure!

You've probably mentioned this somewhere along this huge thread but I've managed to miss it, how big do you expect Takala to get?

I'm not certain, but I'd expect her to be around 15hh since both parents are around that. (Dam is a little taller, sire is a little shorter.)

Also, I have some video! Maybe only be thirty-eight seconds but for anyone hoping for a little more of Takala, here's what you get.

Here's another video I made this afternoon, plenty of Takala running about. I also got some in of our work on leading, and she is still a little rusty when asked just to walk around aimlessly.

Hahaha awesome vids!

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

I've got a question...I'm quite ignorant on the subject of Duns but was wondering if Takala is considered a Dun?
I wondered because of the tush frosting, dorsal stripe and, face masking. Can't tell if she's got shoulder shadows and or zebra stripes or if it's just play mud.
*apologies if that info is buried in this thread. If so just tell my lazy butt to go look it up.
