Drifting, I really wish I could send you Dobe for a while. He's not getting any work here and he's the best ever "respect teacher".

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks. He worked out pretty well. My husband absolutely adored his dam but she wasn't sound for a whole lot of riding. So Zion was his idea and supposed to be a big, calm trail horse that acted like his dam. He has a lot of the fun traits his mom had but Zion is pretty full of himself. So I've quietly in my head traded him Tribby, as his trail horse for Zion, as my dressage horse... think he'll notice?



Sm, I agree with Ace, I have always thought your filly would make a nice flashy youth horse She looks so little next to Rafe (who is very handsome by the way and welcome to join this thread any time...)

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

LOL, Rafe would be more than happy to butt in anywhere but he's a little too old for this particular playground .

I sure hope she ends up being a nice enough horse to be suitable for a child. Since none of her lines have been trained at all in the last 20+ years and countless generations (very inbred from a feral herd), I have absolutely no idea what to expect long term. She's really good about accepting new things, but it's usually after a lot of snorting and spooking and maybe running in some circles.

*sigh*
Colts.... Baby Hooey chewed up a hind leg down to the bone almost a month ago. But he is healing nicely thankfully and it didn't damage any thing critical. He is sound and as far as injuries are concerned I couldn't of been any luckier as to where he had been cut.

I had planned on sneaking a few rides on him and started teaching hobbling on the front legs but hadn't got to the back legs before I turned him out for awhile. The back leg hobbling might have come in handy. Oh well.
He's one of the smartest colts I have had the pleasure of working with. He's a thinker, very curious and seems to show little fear. He chases bulls for fun

Ugh! Cowchick I feel your pain on the leg wound, Stryder did the same thing a few months ago. Good wrap job!

Smrobs, PLEASE send him. I just got a text from my BO that Stryder officially eats 'first' and has taken over as boss of the herd. Apparently Hannah loves him too much to say otherwise. -.-

Too bad you're not closer to Michigan. My mom's friend has a gelding that no matter who he's with, he puts 'em in line. It's been known to happen that we've sent a rowdy horse over to her place for a week or brought him to ours and stuck 'em out together and Bart doesn't let anyone get away with anything. He's 25 and doesn't let any horse put a toe out of line lol. Doesn't matter what pasture he's in, he's boss.

Good luck with Stryder though, hope he gets in line or becomes a respectable boss horse eventually.
