I have pictures from both yesterday and today. Yesterday she was good, but a little more worked up than she was today. She got to romp in the arena, and really took advantage of it. She ran around like a madwoman, but wasn't really distressed, or she would have been screaming while she did it. Today I went and let her out in the arena, and she whinnied a few times initially, but just poked around quietly for a good amount of time while I cleaned her stall. I expected to hear her once in a while, but she was pretty quiet so I intermittently went over to check on her. Sounds like tomorrow she will be outside, so hopefully it is nice. Tomorrow we are going to check up on our other Curly mare, Scarlet, who is at the trainer's. I am certainly excited!

Tenakee is doing good; she really likes to be out in the herd. I'm sure she misses her baby a little, but she is high on the totem pole out there and gets sort of special honors from my gelding, so she is doing well. I plan on working with her more when her milk dries up; along with the weather, for that matter.

We got to see 'aunt' Scarlet today, and she was doing wonderful! They've got her driving single very well, and plan on hitching her with a 1/2 Haflinger, 1/2 Belgian mare who is a little bit taller than her. We got to go for a drive, and I snapped a few pictures of her standing.

We also went up to let Takala run around a little. Again today she was calm and cool and just walked around. I got a bit of trot out of her, but she was adamant on poking around, so I let her be and cleaned her stall. She's shedding plenty, just needs it to happen a little bit quicker. Still a wonderful little pony, hopefully she'll be turned out tomorrow.

Here are a few pics of mom from a few days ago. We worked on ground driving, which was rusty as she doesn't believe in straight lines and would often turn wide when I asked her to turn a bit. I certainly have my work cut out for me, but by the end of the lesson I got her to stick to the sides of the arena better and move in straighter lines. We are getting a round pen soon, so I will be able to free lunge her a bit more which will hopefully make things easier.

I went to see Takala yesterday and we turned her out with the buddy gelding. They got along very well, and it was entirely uneventful. I have a few pics, but I'll have to get them off my phone. She also shares a fence line with two studs and a mule, but all are doing well.

weaning at 4 months isnt a big deal. I had to wean a filly at 3 months due to issues with the dam. That foal was perfectly fine. It happens frequently. Plus after 3 month, the milk loses much of its nutritional value.

She is certainly big and strong enough to wean. Haha. And yes, she is a red dun. Once she sheds that baby fur, itll be much easier to see.

Here are a few of them together, they are getting it along well! The gelding she is in with his a sweetheart, and they get along perfectly. He does make sure she doesn't push his limits, but they look to be good pals. She is doing super, and I don't think this whole experience was that big of a deal for her. I'm hoping to send in her papers relatively soon. I have two different sets for two different registries filled out, plus some decent pictures of her, so hopefully we'll get the wheels turning.

First picture is of the gang in their first day out in their nice green pasture! I don't think Tenakee misses her baby all that much with such nice grass and good company.

Today I rode my Paint mare, Sadie, over to visit Takala. Takala got a bath today! I went back a few hours later - once she was dry - but didn't get any clean, fuzzy pictures. But I did snap a few of her soaking wet and looking like a sad puppy. Boy is she soft, though! I worked on some showmanship patterns, and we will be going to our county fair in two months, so hopefully we will be shed out and ready by then. The last picture is of Sadie and Tenakee, who were eating together a few moments later. But Tenakee certainly knows her place as herd leader. Everyone is doing super, so I figured I would put in a little update.
