^^Sure! Come on down .

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/

Holy cow, where did half-formed funky Talyn go and who replaced her with this shiny bay yearling?!

And WHERE has time gone?! These yearlings are growing up way too fast. Talyn is 17 months old, Rafe is an adult now, Kenzie is nearly 2...It seems like you were just introducing Talyn to us as a PROSPECT, not even caught yet!

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

smrobs, I absolutely love all your horses so I was happy to see this thread I especially love Rafe, he's just my kinda horse. Taz and Talyn have definitely grown into their bodies and are looking good!

Lindy, I'm in the extreme northeast corner of the panhandle. Way out here in the boonies LOL


Endiku, I know! If time flies when you're having fun, we all must be having a blast LOL. It seems like just yesterday that Rafe was still just a tubby baby. Before we know it, I'll be riding her too LOL.

Love this thread and all of your horses! Can't wait till I can get home to Sky and show pictures on his progress of becoming a better educated horse! :)

Aww! I LOVE the growing up thread. I swear it was just yesterday that Rafe and Taz were babies. I SUPER ADORE Talyn. You are very blessed with some amazing horses.

I just love watching yours grow and progress. Thanks for sharing them with us. THey are truly beautiful, and we know they are being trained the right way too, so they will all grow up to be responsible adults.

New milestone for Rafe and Taz today. Rafe got bumped up to a curb bit. The one I've got doesn't have quite enough room for my taste, but it will be functional until I can afford a custom. He took it like a champ and I couldn't even tell the difference in the way he handled except I had to use less rein.





The worst part of the whole thing is that I had to make a new browband for that bridle because the one on there was a few inches too small LOL





And Taz had his first ride! It was about as uneventful as his first real day of saddle work. Had sticky feet at first, but then moved right on out with some coaxing. I was also glad that I could move Rafe up to a big boy bit because Taz needed his 6 incher and I was too lazy to want to re-adjust the bridle every time I changed horses LOL.













And he's truly grown up. 15.2 and about 1100. Never thought I'd feel huge on something that big but after riding only Rafe for a while, even Taz feels dinky LOL. Oh! His trot isn't nearly as bad as I was anticipating. I worried that it would be as bad as John's. Taz is rough, but he's not hard to ride and it will smooth out some with work and collection.
