She sure is beautiful. I have to agree with whoever said that she is probably one of the most beautiful horses I've ever seen. But the baby daddy looks like he has a mean face. LOL



Have you seen any dressage? The bent neck is a result of the horse working with it's back and hindlegs.

If you watch this video of me and Stella, you can see me pat her on the neck - and she's cantering with her neck bent the same way.

You only want to keep a light contact with the bit through the reins, although, my mare is a very forward horse, so often I have to keep a little more than a light contact with the bit, otherwise she would run her heart out.




The daddy is actually a very cute and kind horse, but his blaze is a bit all over the place.

I just think she is beautiful. And I am jealous of that arena. :)

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

I think the foal is moving around a bit. Perhaps it's turning around now?

Anyways, Stella is not happy, kicking her belly.









Here is her stall. Filled up with straw. I also turned on the camera today.

Perhaps I can check out if I can get the camera to show online too.

But I don't know if the computer that the camera is hooked up to got any internet.
The computer is only used for the three foaling cameras in the stable, but I'll look in to it.

OH wow! That would be cool if we could have live streaming Stella!!!

And that one shot you got of her makes her look SO huge! Poor baby girl. I know you said before but I can't recall...is she a maiden?
