I planned on keeping a filly, and I never quite expected that she would be this perfect, so she's a definite keeper. Hopefully she have a strong future as a driving horse and maybe lower level dressage if I ever get that far. I hope that she can follow in the footsteps of her mother and give me a few nice foals after she's proven herself, but that is far into the future. Right now I just want to get her growing up right.
As per usual, a weekend update is in order. Due to nice weather - as in no tsunami rains or arctic chills - they got to go in the outdoor arena for some exercise. Takala must have been done with running about by the time I summoned the courage to go back outside with the camera. But pictures of Takala just standing around are better than no Takala at all. ;) Also, Takala is almost a month old! Very exciting, and she is getting big, fast! Tenakee has started shedding heavily, so forgive that she is scruffy. I pulled at least a dog's worth of hair off of her after I took the pictures. I think she's a crazy woman because in Wisconsin, winter sometimes doesn't end until April. But I don't think the big mare will have much of a problem, she's got plenty of hair left, even after shedding.
