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. :'(
