    I went out and visited with my boy last week and gave him some kisses and carrots. Sorry forgot the camera.

    I called the trainer today to see how things are going and she said everyone on the ranch just loves, loves loves him. And that he is really smart, smart, smart. I may not get my horse back. He may come up missing when it's time to pick him up. She said she is really having to mix things up for him, to get him thinking back to her and that he doesn't always know what the next step is going to be. Sounds like he is giving her as good as he gets. Someone will be trained by the end of May.

    I already have two smart horses at home. Next time I'm picking a stupid one. Naaahhhhh! I don't think I can do it.

    My trainer will be gone part of next week, so another trainer (whom I trust) will be working with him in her absence. I go to Phoenix, AZ the last week of March, so we will catch up the week of April 4th and I will take my camera out for some new pictures. Promise!

    Updated, Baby not a baby anymore

    Here are some recent pictures that I took of Pistol. He's had 30 days of training on him and they just love him. My trainer said he is really smart and very very willing.

    Thank you for the compliments. I told them prior to me leaving him that they needed to monitor him when tied up, because he is a Houdini. Well they forgot my warning and he went a visiting around the ranch one day. Now they only tie him in a corral, close by, or they have trained him to hobbles and they hobble him when he will be unattended.

    My trainer feels that he will be ready for his first horse show by June and we will be showing him in Green horse English Pleasure.

    Update - Baby Not a Baby Anymore

    I went out and rode my guy yesterday. He's been in training since March 1st and has 90 days on him. He's doing just great. As previously said by me, everybody at the ranch (bording facility) where he's being trained just loves him. When I go to visit, the other borders come up to me and ask, "Are you Pistols Mom?" And then they go on to gush about how much they love him. The jumping trainer, who I guess was pretty well known in Los Angeles, she came up this way to retire and then got back in to training, says every time she sees him "there's my horse!" When it's time to take him home, I'm going to have to go in under cover of darkness and get him.
    So, back to riding him. He is just wonderful. Walks, trots, canters on command, leg yields, turns on the fore and honches, and is very soft and giving on the bit. No pulling or rooting like some young horses like to do. The trainer has also been taking him out on trail rides and he's like an old pro. Water crossings, bridges, and motorbikes no problem.
    Since I sold my Arabian gelding and have some fun bucks that I had not counted on, I'm going to leave him for another 30 days. So, I will be picking him up on August 1st. My trainer says that he'll be ready for our big "show" of the year here (Labor Day Weekend), so we will be doing the green english classes and hunter hack over poles.
    I have a friend who is going to go out with me next Wednesday (June 22nd) and she said that she would take some pictures. So, next Wednesday we will have an update and photos. Thanks for reading! It's so exciting when your baby gets under saddle.

    I promised new pics undersaddle, but unfortunately the piece of junk digital camera my husband sent with me, was so slow capturing the image that when I tried to take pictures while my trainer was riding him all I got was either a picture of his nose or his butt!
    So here are a couple of him standing still and I go to ride next week and will take, my camera!
