    True, Tawny is a bit long from eye to muzzle, but the rest of her is so well balanced it makes up for it. Her barn pic is probably the most flattering of her profile I have. Queenie may grow into her head a little, too. You have to laugh at the homely little baby pics, don't you?

    Temperament-wise, considering Tawny had only been handled about 10 days before I picked her up, she was really level headed. She was a quick learner and willing. She wasn't one to race around all bug-eyed and snorty, but, under saddle she can get on it with a very light cue. Yes, she is fast, but never loses her mind with speed. Can't say enough about the mare, she's always been the brave one on trails when my friends' horses aren't - will go wherever I point her.

    As far as what to do with Queenie for now, I would simply get her going on a lunge line and responding to verbal cues (if you haven't already); desensitizing and sensitizing with an assortment of objects and ropes; then on to ground driving...lots of that. Hopefully, she'll be as easy to start and train as Tawny!

    I don't have any side shots of the stud, just these two I was sent way back when. I did see him in person (the breeders only live a mile away from my parents) and he was a big-bodied guy and laid back. That Lulu is cute, too. I actually went back a couple years later to look at another weanling filly...that's how much I liked Tawny...but, didn't care for that one's head, it was reeeally long.

    Good luck with Queenie, she's a nice looking filly. If she turns out anything like Tawny, you'll probably be hanging onto her!

    Oh I don't mind Queenie's face, kinda cute. She would probably look really good in a thin leather western bridle.

    I like her a lot, just waiting to see how she grows I guess.

    Here is a most recent picture of her.

    I don't know if anyone has said this. But as far as pedigree, she's got Colonel Freckles in there. Quarter horse all of fame. Champion cutting horse. He was big! My horse is a direct grandson of him.

    I hope she will get upwards of 15.1-2 and stocky. She's also has got Bar Heels and Three bars not to far back, so maybe she's have speed and a love to run.

    Wow... Just looked up Colonel Freckles pedigree... Did not know he has Three Bars in his pedigree!

    As far as work is concerned, what type can I do with her without riding? I'm waiting to break her in to saddle until spring/summer2014. She has been mainly doing groundwork such as lunging, disengaging hind & forequarters, backing, and whatnot.

    Thanks for the compliment, I certainly think she's pretty!

    She is a cutie!

    My boy is a March 2011 model. I've put on about 10 or so walk/trot rides, but the weather is making sure I don't push him ;) Leading up to riding over our 9 months together, did tons of walking/trotting in hand at halter, with showmanship moves like squaring up/setting up, pivots & backing without lead pressure, some in hand sidepassing, bridge & pole crossing, in hand walks down the road and down trails for a change of scenery. Practiced saddling & unsaddling and all other types of handling from both sides, not just the left! Got him used to wearing bell & splint boots, shipping or standing wraps, not freaking out if my jacket was hung over the saddle horn and the wind blew it, etc. Practiced loading/unloading in a trailer. Introduced to the clippers (still working on this!) Lots of reinforcing that he must stand still for grooming, bathing, tacking, or anytime I tell him whoa. Sometimes just tying him up for awhile to practice patience, either at the grooming rack, in his stall, at a trailer, in an arena with horses working around him, or completely alone far away from his buddies. Did a ton of ground driving to get the steering in place; it's also a good way to lightly work him without stressing leg joints from lunging/round penning in endless circles. Ground drove around cones, barrels, over bridges/poles/downed trees, through wide gates and narrow gates, around the property, pretty much anywhere or doing anything I could possibly think of that I'd like to eventually do undersaddle.

    ^^Thanks for the info, I've done a lot of the groundwork already such as saddling, trailering, bathing, respect exercises, such as what Clinton Anderson teaches and a LOT of ponying off our bigger horse Red. I've ponied her on roads, fields, ditches, woods, creek, around other horses/vehicles etc.

    I'm waiting for spring to ride her as she seems to be a slower grower.
