She is very pretty and rare for me. I've seen Blue roans but not like this. Tobiano. I have a red dun tobiano whom I'm in love with. Her color is pretty. But not a rarity. I want more pics!!!

Hah, yeah my horses are my kids
Here is a link to Twiggy's album:
Twiggy - born on May 10th 2011 - Beyond Photography by Karel Flugr

You can see how she's been growing..
"mbender" <---yes out of 12 different combinations I got the blue roan tobiano I thought I was never going to get...
They are spoiled rotten, they eat better than I do, they have better clothes, you know how it goes...

Why are you riding a 2 year old? 2 is far to young to be backed! And why have they got long ropes that they can tie themselves up in around their feet?

Someone needs to calm down. People ride 2 year olds everyday, as long as it's done properly it's less detrimental then an idiot riding a 4 year old. And letting them step on a leadrope teaches invaluable lessons about NOT panicking when they get tangled. She's not unsupervised in a pasture.

This is not the critique section.

HAHAHAHA I was the one who suggested her name from a pic where she was all tangled up in her own legs. :)

She is a beautiful girl and I love her multi coloured tail. Good luck with her!

Macambre Nicolaj -
Thank you - that is exactly my answer - my 2 year old has been started nice and easy.. She was mentally ready to be started when she turned 2 in January, and her training is about control not speed at this point.
-Neither of my horses freak out at their lead rope when they step on it, instead the learn to give and take a step back and the pressure on their face goes away.. horses learn from release of pressure..

In fact - Twiggy (the foal) is very well halter broke at 4 months old and letting her step on her lead rope played a big role in halter breaking her - OFCOURSE I leave her halter and lead rope on her only when she is superwised

My 2 year old doesn't pull back when tied and again I thank the "leave the lead rope on the ground to be dragged and stepped on" method

Gorgeous filly! I'm pretty sure she wants to move next door to Indiana
