    She is coming to our barn on tuesday! She is getting her hoofies trimmed and that evening we are picking her up.

    So this is my idea.

    She is still a bit skittish and I don't blame her. She hasn't had a ton of human contact when she was younger and it does make a big difference. Anyways, I plan on stalling her first for quite some time...We will give her a run so she can walk around and get fresh air. The reason I am doing this is so she can get to know us and not buddy up with the other horses in the pastures. Once she knows we aren't going to kill her she will be able to go outside.

    She is shedding her baby coat right now so she kind of reminds me of an appy :P

    Tomorrow are pictures!

    When I got my filly she was 10 months and had probably been touched only a handful of times. She didn't lead, she wouldnt let me near her at all.

    It can be done in a million and one ways of course :) My way was to take over her feed pan. I would come in her paddock with her feed, put it down take a hand full of grain and she wasn't allowed to go to her feed without taking some from me. Then I increased to her taking some from me and letting me touch her. Before I knew it I could rub her all over, pick up her feet. Now she is the most social little butterfly :)

    Don't worry to much. You two will work it out and she will be your best bud in no time!

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    I'm excited about it and you guys will get plenty of posts probably when I need advice.

    Oh and btw..I heard it was bad to lunge a yearling but someone told me it was fine to lunge a horse for aboutr 15 minutes a day at her age.I would think with being lunged it puts them at an angle to where it's bad on their joints...am I correct? I know probably a lot of people will be opinionated but I want her to have good joints...sooo..

    It shouldn't hurt her to lunge her 15 mins a day. Just be easy with her. That's what we did with our filly. Their attention span is only about 15 mins anyway. Lunging is supposed to be about getting the horse to listen to you not just working off excessive energy.

    I was looking through my notes & our filly was closer to being 2 when we started lunging her not a year like I thought. We were still working on ground manners, desensitizing, and stuff like that when she was around a year old.
    Sorry for the wrong info
    Like I said though it was real light at first.

    Good luck with your filly! My best friend's horse growing up was an Arab/Welsh cross and he was an awesome horse. Very smart and pretty, and boy could he RUN!!

    Welara ponies are a breed of pony bred from the Arabian horse and the Welsh pony. They are used as mounts for children and small adults, and are known for their good movement and gentle temperament.
