    That is great that you are giving Thor the advantage of being trained by someone knowledgeable! You'd be surprised at how many people end up doing this the wrong way!

    Kudos to you!

    Thor is very cute. Love his color! I'm sure that once you get more experienced and he is broke, you two will have some good rides together :)

    Yeah, I hope so! The ranch owner is a little worried about how he'll take the bit, though.

    I've heard that if you put molasses or something sweet on it [he freaking LOVES molasses, let me tell you...], the horses tend to take it a little better. Any suggestions?

    How I get a horse to accept the bit is to just put it on. No sweets, no bribing. After it's on, they get put right back to work so that their mind and feet are both busy. Within just a few minutes, they have completely accepted the bit and it's old hat after that.

    Hmmm... I'll have to try that when I go out there with him. I should have the Vet take a look at his teeth before I try this, right? I don't want to hurt him on accident.

    You can have him look if you want. I've never had their teeth checked prior to bridling though.

    Well that works! Thanks for the advice!



    ALSO, I have some good news!

    We had twins on 9/11! Mare's name was Empire State of Mind and we think the sire was New York, so the colt and filly were named New York Tower and New York Sweetheart, respectively!

    We didn't even know she was pregnant, let alone that she was going to have twins. Both were a little weak, but I was assured that the two should make a healthy come back and momma mare is doin' great, too!

    More pictures of Thor! [And one of the foals we suspect he sired!]





    [We haven't settled on a name for her, just yet. Any suggestions?! She's very much like Thor.]

    This is one of my favorite pictures of him!
