I'm so glad to have such a enthusiastic group! I promise I'll post regular pictures, in fact I usually go a little crazy on the pics/videos

Today was a good day working with Vee. I can finally put her little blanket on without an extra hand since she is getting much better about touching her back legs and hooking the rear blanket straps. This afternoon we worked more on leading and I even picked up all 4 legs! She was a kicking fool with her hind legs at first but after a few seconds got the hang of it and relaxed. She is so friggin' smart and cute when she learns...you teach her something and her little mouth just licks & chews away!

She is SUCH a beauty. You have a long way to go to get her ready for endurance. Especially for Tevis! I have no doubt you'll both do great things. Arabians are so smart and catch on so quickly. Sometimes TOO smart I'm sure you are well aware. I'm so looking forward to following her progress. Guess I'll have to start my own thread for our "twins" who are just turning four and will start under saddle this summer. I'm so excited that you finally have her home. I don't know how you survived the wait! It's bad enough to have to wait for them to be born, but you had to wait t ok bring her home too!

Thank you Arab Mama. We aren't even gonna think about endurance or Tevis for a longggg time. Tevis is actually a pretty unrealistic goal since not many endurance horses are even Tevis potential, but I like to dream big I had doubts/regrets about raising my first foal too fast so I want this baby to grow up slowly and correctly. The good thing is that I have my other mare who is super safe, so later on down the road I can pony Vee with us for short rides.

I hope you do decide to start a thread for your twins! As for waiting, I'm convinced this whole YEAR has been a lesson to me about waiting. First Vee, and then my boyfriend moved to Maryland after graduating from the same college as me, so we've been having a long distance relationship while I finish up my last year for almost a year now (with visits every couple of months). I have never been one to have patience...but God must have wanted to teach me! lol

Thank you everyone!

Here's some pics from today...

FIRST! Purple halter is too big She'll have to grow into that one

Today we went on our first outdoor walk! I had a friend take Selena (my other Arab mare) so they could get use to each other and so Vee would be more confident than going by herself. We had a good time and Vee practiced leading and following...she just trucked right along, licking & chewing, bright eyed & bushy tailed! lol

Better too big than too small! it looks good on her aside from the size!!

She's growing on Selena? They both look pretty laid back in that picture :)
