    Well, I suppose so! I did a bit of a photoshoot the other day, and considering all she does is follow me around asking for love I tied her up and got a few quick snaps. I got her fly mask off and saw that pretty little face of her's that has been hidden during the fly season. I haven't really been doing much with her aside from letting her grow. We have our good second crop hay that is much better for her, and that paired with some short lawn grass pasture she is keeping weight much better. She is going to be such a beauty when she is finished growing, I am so excited for her. If I find the ambition I want to work a bit this fall on harnessing her. Do not worry, as I certainly am not going to make her do any work. I have a light weight small horse/pony driving harness that would probably fit her, and I figure the sooner she is desensitized the better. She is a very good girl, and doesn't mind having ropes flung and tangled on her without even being haltered much less tied. Plus the farther along I have her light work when she is old enough I can start the more 'strenuous' work. I would like to get her driving at two, enough to where she is fairly reliable single and good hooked with our team, then give her a nice break for anywhere from 6 months to a year, and start her over again. The driving I would have her doing at two would be walk/trot pulling a light cart, or a wagon with another horse. No fieldwork until she is fairly mature, I'd like to wait until she is four before I ask too much of her. And at four I'd hope to start her under saddle, as well. I have so many plans for this gal! I think her draft temperament will assist us greatly in the future, as well as her good start in life.

    Hey have not tuned in to see her for a while - pretty girl, Personally I would not be starting her in anything till at least three - not so much for the physical side - as you say it would just be a light cart but for the mental side - young horses have a very short attention span, and too much too soon is not a good thing mentally. It's a bit like expecting a 6 year old kid to go to university.
    Don't be in a hurry - desensitizing works well at any age. My advice - let her be a horse and grow physically and mentally for 3 years Play with her and enjoy her
