Oops, I'm in a vehicle and hit a bump and accidentally hit submit. I was going to say it takes a pretty small amount of straw. I used about half a bale with some wet stuff on top.

And thank you for the compliments. Her cuteness is a bonus. I just love her attitude and willingness.

Hmm, I wonder if it has to do with population? You're in California, correct? I've been through various areas there and it's pretty densely populated compared to here, so I would imagine if people were all burning, it would create quite a lot of smog. The population of Alberta is somewhere just under 4 million and the majority of that is in two cities with the rest of the province being pretty sparsely populated. Plus, I think with the intense heat you experience down there, wild fires are more of a problem than they are here. We do get forest fires here, but usually only when it's been exceptionally hot and dry and at that point, we would be under a fire ban. This year has been pretty wet so far. In that picture, it had just rained hours before I made a smudge and everything was drenched.

Elsa will be 3 months old on Thursday. The time seems to be going by so quickly! She has almost completely shed her foal coat with just a little bit left on her face. She's turned a lovely seal brown shade, providing a nice contrast with all of the white. She is really eager and a super quick learner who absolutely loves praise. When we're working on something and she finally gets it, if she gets a "good girl" and scratch on the withers, she'll keep right on doing it. She picks up all four feet, yields in the hindquarters and shoulders in both directions. She's still a little shaky sidepassing and wants to move one or the other instead of both, but gets it after a try or two, and of course praise and scratches. She leads like a charm and has walked through puddles with me and doesn't seem to mind being out of sight of Lilly.

She's also growing like a weed. She's just a smidgen over 12.2 hands at the withers and 12.3 in her hindquarters. Some day her front end will catch up to the back end! She's into her 3rd halter now and it makes me a little sad to see the two previous little ones hanging up in the barn now. :'(

Pretty in purple and annoying mom at the same time.

Thanks. I'm happy she isn't too hard on the eyes.

She string tested to 15.3 which I'll be happy with since her dam is only 15hh.

Found this picture from the other day of her practicing crossing over in the front lol.

I was able to sneak away and see Elsa this weekend. The little brat escaped their pen and thought it was great fun to run away as soon as I got close enough to put the halter on. I eventually took Lilly into the barn and Elsa followed. As soon as we were inside, she was my best friend and acted as if she couldn't stay away from me. What a stinker. We actually picked out her feet for the first time. I had only been picking them up and holding them prior to yesterday and I finally dug out the hoof pick. Nothing happened. In fact, she seemed to enjoy it. The flies are absolutely awful this year. No amount of fly wipe keeps them away, so I am going to invest in some fly sheets for Lilly and Elsa. In previous years, fly wipe has been enough to keep them at bay, but they drive Lilly absolutely batty and it was difficult to get photos of Elsa because the flies were bothering her so badly. We've ad an exceptionally wet, but hot year and I think that may be contributing to our crazy fly population.
