Exactly Glynnis!

Rook was one week old yesterday, I tried to get some decent pictures but either momma stuck her nose in my phone or rook was too close to take a picture.

She sampled her first bite of moms hay today! She put it in her mouth and was not sure what to do with it. So CUTE!

She already yields the hind quarters and backs off a rope around her neck at the slightest pressure. Since she is so independent, I wanted to halter break and get her leading asap. She does not follow flashy at all, so the sooner I get her leading, the safer it will be for everyone.

She is used to the halter, and will walk right up to me for scratches! She is super agreeable and smart so far! (knock on wood)

I also put cones, a tarp and a plastic barrel in their pasture. Since momma doesnt care, baby doesnt even bat an eye at it.

Rook is 2 weeks old today! Where is the time going? Yesterday I took flashy for a short bareback ride around the property, next time I will be using a saddle! My calm {anybody with a heart beat can ride her} mare is not so reliable with a baby at her side! The little stinker nearly tossed me!

Today Rook got a visit from my grandparents, my mom and dad and my aunt from Florida. She is just a social butterfly. Nothing phases this pretty little girl. She didnt even move when another boarder put her "shades" on. Up until this point we have not truely introduced halter pressure. That is the goal for today. She is an extremely quick learner and I'm sure she will be perfect after a couple days!

She also officially grew out of her first halter!! The new one is a little big around the nose, but I am sure she will grow in to it in a few short days!

Today I introduced my gelding Moe to Rook over the fence. Up until this point momma and baby have been isolated. Baby Rook was very interested, and momma wasnt having that!

I also happened to catch her playing with a cone. She was picking it up and flipping it, unfortunately after I started taping she notice me and stopped playing with it.
