April, Bubbles, and Selena being hateful.



So April and Bubbles made it home without a hitch, Mom said they hauled great which is wonderful because I was VERY worried about them. I thought for sure Bubbles would jump into the feeder or something on the stock trailer.

I have managed to rub her a little with a rope, and get my arms around her neck, and scratch her. Occasionally she will still shy away but we have to get the round pen set up before we can do much. Often if I go up and scratch April she'll be fine to let me touch her too. I still don't know how I'm going to handle the separation because I sense April is going to be a pill about it too. I'm thinking I'll work Bubbles in the pen, and have Mom lunge April so they both have something to do for now to make them think until we get this herd anxiety done with.

Oh, and Selena really, really hates them. She herds Lexi away from them and if they get within twenty feet of her, her ears magically disappear.

Pictures time now :)

April



Bubbles



Mom and "baby" faces.





And now I bring you a montage of what Selena thinks about "making friends".













Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Friendly gal, isn't she? LOL.

April and Bubbles are gorgeous. LOVE Bubble's high whites and big blaze. Don't come looking this way if she disappears.

Did I miss the story of who they are?

be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I think you did...It was a long time ago but we finally got them home.


April's First ride in Eleven Years

I thought I had another thread but that one has most of the info on it.

Bubbles is absolutely stunning...I still have no idea what use she is as of right now, at ten years old and wild, but I guess we'll just have to see what we can do with her. I know it sounds horrible to say that she's worthless but in this economy...She kinda is, and we'll have a long ways to go before she's leadable, let alone rideable.

That is amazing!! Selena has a perfect Mare Stare. They look great! :)

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Well she certainly won't be voted "Miss Congeniality" by the herd!

Oh, Ms. Cranky Pants! Do we have a little bit of "small horse syndrome"? LOL!

Hahaha definitely small horse syndrome. She has some major attitude! At the barrel races too she has her ears pinned flat against her head while we are standing next to my friend's horses. Such a dork!

I have just been patting and loving on Bubbles for now, as much as she'll tolerate, and trying to stop before the pulls away. Hoping for now even that every day will help.
