Wrecker was led into the arena, Chilly would follow. And when Chilly would take off running, my mom would lead Wrecker back out and wait. That is until Chilly refused to run anymore.

Ill be riding Rumor at the next show, then after that Chilly is going without Wrecker. Wrecker will be 11 Weeks by then and shell be fine at home with a babysitter.

Wrecker has a very pretty doll head, one of the nicest I have seen on a paint.

wrecker got a haircut! Wasnt sure how she would be with the clippers, but once again, this girl is phenomenal! She stood tied and never even flinched when faced with the clippers. Took about 45 minutes and she was just wonderful! She was sooooo hot and sweaty in this warmer weather, so I said once the cold front we had a few days ago passed though, I was clipping her. We are in the low 80's now and I don't see us getting cold again...then again, this is michigan!

Wrecker is over 2 months old now, I just can't believe it. Growing like a weed, but man is she growing up nice! She's the sweetest baby. I honestly put her halter on about once a week now. Just go out in the field, she comes trotting up to you, and practically shoves her nose in the halter herself. She's amazing. Leads and stands tied like she came out of the womb already halter broke! Lol. I just can't believe how incredibly lucky I am.

On a side note. We only have 4 stalls, and 5 horses. And not enough room for hay space for the winter. So...its either sell a horse...or add onto the barn...

...........construction is starting next week. --wink--

thank you. Im ever so pleased with her. My mom keeps wanting to steal her from me. Chilly is doing good. She looks pregnant again from the grass she's on. Lol. I've never seen a sorrel with dapples, but she's got them. Its fascinating.

My dad still can't believe wrecker is going to be black. He doesnt understand how that's possible. So I keep trying to bet him, and he says 'you sound so sure, im not betting you'...hahaha.

I just have to post these from tonight. Sooo stinking cute!


Can you see her?










I try taking a picture of another horse and I constantly get some body part of wrecker. Photo bomber!




She's over 2 months now. Shouldn't this blue tinting to her eyes go away? Or is this permanent for her? Its quite blue in person, but I can't seem to capture it on film.

She's looking awesome! Don't know about the blue tint. Maybe it's something to do with genetics/colouring?? Sorry I'm no help but you have a lovely girl there :)

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Well, she does carry frame, which is a cause of blue eyes. And I know that all (most?) Babies are brown with blue eyes or blue tinted eyes, humans, puppies, pretty much all babies. But usually they grow out of that within a month or so. Her eyes continue to get "bluer" as she grows. They aren't the normal blue eyes horses have, but more of a dark indigo coloring. And they are not brown at all...
