    O, color gurus, where are you?
    Her bum comes from dad, who has a handsome spotted bum that I've seen on only two of his daughters so far, one being LaLa and other is CMC Dolly's Jubilee. But that is only of the foals of his that I've seen. Essentially every color is accepted for Curly horses. Curlies in America came from the Mustangs, and have been out crossed with, most notably, Arabs and Morgans. One of the foundation sires was an Morgan called Ruby Red King, and I'm drawing a blank on the Arab stud that was used. But in some lines they were not only bred with just light horses, but Tenakee actually has some Suffolk Punch bred in her. (Which looking at her it is no surprise.) I'm not very familiar with them, but apparently the gene for curls is found in Missouri Fox Trotters and curly MFTs can be double registered... Long story short, Curlies are a horse of many colors. Being a rare breed they have been out crossed quite a bit. There is a registry that closed its books to only curly to curly breeding, but since horses of any size can be curly, sometimes the breed is treated more like color breeds. I'm not sure where I stand as Curlies often give relief to people with allergies, so there are people out there who can benefit from a Curly of any size.

    Any who, back to LaLa, she is scaring me with how much she reminds me of my gelding, Moe. He is a loud color POA with about just as much color as personality. She is a little less rowdy, but at 7 years old he still has a similar personality as a few day old filly. Considering how much of a handful he was, I am rightfully frightened. I think with what I know now it wouldnt be as big of a struggle compared to when I was 10 years old with a green, cheeky pony who wanted nothing more than to cause trouble. No pictures ATM, but I have to share that she was actually drinking from our automatic water, nibbling at hay, and licking Tenakee's grain bucket. She just wants a taste of anything she comes across. I feel bad, but knowing how lippy Tenakee is I don't let her nibble on me despite how cute it is. I don't think anything could really deter her curiosity, but I try to keep the naughty behavior to a minimum. I will upload some pictures later, when I am on my own computer.

    I managed to catch Tenakee with her ears forward! Good thing a photograph doesn't catch the horrendous noise I had to make for Tenakee to perk her ears towards me. The toils of being an amateur photographer. Maybe Takala had a little dressage practice in there, as she rounds herself up and collects pretty nicely while burning around like hell. It is just a hoot, as this point her head is just about as long as her neck. It is funny when she dozes off standing, because she tucks in her chin to her chest and puts on a grumpy face.

    I need to get my camera back in working order, aka find batteries, so I can get some better pictures of her antics. Also having an arena with footing that isn't frozen solid would be nice.

    You probably have stated the answer to my question somewhere, but are you keeping the foal? If so what are your plans?

    I really was waiting until the foal was on the ground to decide. If it ended up being a colt I was going to sell it and possibly buy a mare. But Takala is exactly what I wanted in a foal, so I will definitely keep her. I plan on keeping her training up to date with her age. When she is 2 almost 3 I will introduce her to the harness and vehicle and ground driving but nothing attached, then when she turns 3 I want to start her under harness, and get her driving for a year, then once she turns 4 I will start her under saddle. What I will do with her depends on what she excels at. If she was very good with driving, then I may keep her on that path for longer. If she takes better to saddle we will probably start some dressage. I also want to show her locally as a yearling and possible weanling, and if not show as a weanling I hope to at the very least get her exposed to that environment. (At our county show their are not many people, so we usually have stalls open in the barn. The extra stalls get filled with either baby Clydesdales and/or a Zedonk.) If the time is right and I can find a good stallion, I may breed her. That is part of why I was hoping for a filly, so I could officially pardon Tenakee of her foaling duties and years down the road still have the possibility. But this is barring any conformational flaws, or if she simply doesn't compete well and prove herself.

    I've got lots of plans for her, needless to say. ;) I love how cute she is and her antics, but I am excited to see her grow up, and what kind of horse she'll grow up to be.

    Also, I attached a photo of her father, MCH Buddy. (First Pic.) And then my gelding, who so far she is resembling in personality, and a bit in looks.

    Here are a few pictures from the past few days. My phone hasn't been working so I couldn't upload them right away. One shows her as she waits for mom to pull her head out of the bucket so she can lick the sides, another is right after she was slurping around in the automatic water. Then I have one from when I saddled up Tenakee with a regular horse saddle, just to see how she could actually look like a horse. Neither of them held still long enough to get a decent photo, so they are both half cut-off and blurry. But it gets the point across. ;) She is still cute, even when in blob-form.

    Took a video of Takala running around today. :) They'll be limited to how much they get to be out in their run, as Takala is already wanting to scoot through the fence, which is turned off. So they will only be out there while someone is home to keep an eye on them, until she is old enough to learn how a fence works, at least.
