    Wink Gracie has proven I can tack up a horse. =]

    But that's it! She's taking everything without a tiny bit of a fight, and so far, I feel like I'm "starting" a horse that's already been ridden for ten years, lol. I put a bridle on her for the first time last week, and have made it a part of the grooming process. Groom, bridle, walk around, put her away.

    Today I took out my surcingle, punched a bunch more holes in it and threw it on her. She pinned her ears and bared her teeth a bit, but I tightened the girth up as tight as it would be for a saddle and rider and she didn't buckle, balk, refuse to move, walk funny, nothing. She just gave me a grumpy face and proceeded to trot around on the end of her lunge line happy as a clam. I'm so very proud of her, even if I feel like I haven't actually done anything, lol.

    Anywho, a picture. =]



    And in case you didn't see my bridle thread, here she is in her bridle. =]

    Thank you! =D She is pretty comfortable in her bridle. She eats it up like it's a treat when I bring it to her lips, and she just happily plays with it when it's in her mouth. I'm sure she thinks it's just a new ingenious toy for her to play with. It's adorable. =]

    That surcingle swallows her lol. Sounds like she is moving along nicely and taking very thing in stride, congrats!

    Haha, yes, yes it does swallow her. I punched like six holes on each side, and it's all the way up, lol. I'm going to get another one, because I hate the one I have. And a hot pink saddle pad, now that she can be use it. =D

    Aww! She's all growed up! Lol

    I wouldn't have thought she was even a year old yet. She's so teeny weeny! Well, my horse was 15hh by the time she was 10 mos. So.... maybe I'm just not used to seeing a "real" sized yearling-and-a-half.

    She is very teeny-weeny, lol. I doubt she's going to make it to "horse" sized and I find that terribly depressing. I like my horses big, but alas, it was not meant to be. At least she has a pretty face. I'll keep her just so I can see that face every day. =]

    It's CRAZY how small she is! Were her parents quite small? I checked out your barn and for some reason, I always thought she was a pony! It makes me shake my head that some people are RIDING them at that age!

    Then again, Jynxy was 14.1hh when I purchased her at 2 years old, and in less then a year (she'll be 3 in April, she's shot up to almost 15.1hh Them stock horses like to grow like weeds!

    I agree though, I doubt she'll get much over 14hh. I'm SO glad I didn't buy Jynx's half sister instead - she's the same age and barely 14hh herself!

    Gracie looks AWESOME. Glad it's going well, and thumbs up on the bit choice!
